30 Hotels in Amalfi, Italy
Amalfi, an evocative locality set between the sea and the mountains, is the largest town of the coast, than for this reason it takes the name of Costiera Amalfitana, known in English as "Amalfi Coast". The city was founded by the Romans and after the fall of the empire it was a flourishing sea republic and a great naval power, with a population of 70000 inhabitants. Its ships transported and introduced in Italy exotic products coming from the East like carpets, coffee and spices.
In 1131 it was conquered by the Normans and in 1343 a strong earthquake destroyed the city and it placed aim to its gold period.
Nowaday Amalfi is a lively, colorful tourist resort, with a temperate climate, incomparable natural beauties and a rich historical-artistic heritage. The center of the village is characterized by the typical white houses and tightened alleys. The Dome, at the top of steep flight of step, is dedicated to Sant'Andrea and goes back to the IX century. The bronzee door came from Costantinople and is adorned with images of Christ and Madonna. Inside it's a mixture of Saracen and Romanesque styles, with magnificent mosaics, and the relic of Sant'Andrea buried in the crypt.
The cloister, the so called Chiostro del Paradiso, is the most appealing part of the building, in oriental style with its arches and palms.
Near the Cathedral there is the museo civico where we can view the “Tabula de Amalpha”, the book of maritime laws that governed the republic until 1570. On the seafront lies the ancient Arsenal that testifies the glorious military of the city. But Amalfi offers also great natural beauties. An excursion by boat cannot lack to the Cove of Emerald, discovery in 1932, whose name derives by the color of the water thanks to the sun reflections. To render this place still more evocative is the manger realized in ceramics and lean on the seabed to approximately 4 meters of depth.
