Of Roman origins, it was restlessly ransacked, and during IX century, it proclaimed itself Indipendent Maritime Republic, giving its mariners the maritime code: “Tabula de Amalpha” (Amalfi tables).
There are several patrol towers alongside the coast, which witness the most powerful and flourishing time of the city, when Amalfi used to trade with the East, importing fabrics and spieces and exporting its famous handmade paper. This precious paper is still produced in town, and visiting the Paper Museum, you will experience a real journey in an ancient paper mill.
The wonderful Cathedral of Saint Andrew is by far the most important monument of the Amalfi Coast, and it deserves an accurate visit.
Our tour in Amalfi will be focused on showing you the important role that this maritimecity hold during the past.
We will enjoy a walking tour through the deep valley where in the past they used to manufacture the paper, and we can even add a visit in the Paper museum.
Before leaving you may decide to visit the Cathedral, or simply linger at the best gelato shop!
