One of the 4 Maritime Republics, the other pearl of the Amalfi Coast, with its views of the sea, its imposing Cathedral, coves and caves. Visit it with us!
Imposing, unique, wonderful. The majestic Cathedral of Amalfi cannot be defined otherwise, which is located right in the center of the city and which remains impressed by its large entrance staircase which has 57 steps. The facade, restored with modern mosaics, shines in the sunlight and the church inside has columns from Paestum to support the vault. Attached to the church is the Cloister of Paradise, born as a cemetery for the noble families of Amalfi. It is in Romanesque style that mixes with Arab influences that obviously cross the entire seaside town.
The cathedral is open every day from 9 to 19.45 and admission is 3 euros per person. Clothing appropriate to a place of worship is recommended.
If you say Amalfi you also say Amalfi paper, the typical paper with a thick grain under the fingers. Inside the Museum it is possible to see what the paper manufacturing processes were, with all the instruments of the time restored and still functioning.
The museum is open every day from 1pm to 6.30pm and the entrance ticket is 4.50 euros per person.
It was discovered last century by chance by a fisherman and is rich in stalactites and stalagmites worked by the sea. The water is so clear and emerald in color that it is possible to see up to 10 m of depth.
The entrance to the cave is linked to marine and atmospheric conditions and shows 6 euros per person while children under the age of 12 enter for free.
Halfway between Amalfi and Positano is the Fiordo di Furore, an inlet between the rocks which, due to its shape, was a natural stronghold in defense of the Saracen invasions. Today the Fjord is famous thanks to the international diving competitions and can be reached both by sea and by land.
