The town of Amalfi is located in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of Italy. The town lies at the mouth of a deep ravine at the bottom of Monte Cerrato which is 1, 315 meters above sea level. Amalfi is also surrounded by cliffs and magnificent coastal scenery. Amalfi is the principal town on the Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast) and is a very important, and busy, tourist destination along the Amalfi Coast along with the towns of Positano, Ravello and others. The town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Located in the heart of Amalfi, at the top of a staircase, is Saint Andrew's Cathedral which overlooks the Piazza Duomo. Dating back to the 11th century, the cathedral's interior is of a Baroque style and has a nave and two aisles divided by 20 columns. In contrast to the interior, the cathedral's exterior has a Byzantine style with a number of paintings of saints, including a large fresco of Saint Andrew.
The Amalfi Coast region is famed for its production of Limoncello liqueur and, unsurprisingly, for growing lemons. The region's lemons are typically longer and double the size of other lemons and have a thick wrinkled skin and a sweet and juicy flesh without many pips. It is not uncommon to see lemons growing in the terraced gardens along the Amalfi Coast between February and October.
The Italian town of Positano is located along the beautiful Amalfi Coast and is widely regarded by many as one of the most picturesque coastal towns in the country. The town itself has a good number of pretty pastel coloured houses that seem to cling to the hillside next to the sea and visitors should be aware that there are a large number of steep streets and stairways in the town which may be a challenge for some. Despite the town now being a popular holiday destination it has still managed to retain a great deal of its charming fishing village atmosphere that has stunning cliff-hugging roads, lively beachfronts and some breathtaking views. Apart from lazing in the sun on one of the town's beaches popular things to do include taking a cruise along the Amalfi Coast, taking in the lovely view of the Bay of Salerno, or trekking along one of the regions walking trails which includes the stunning cliff side path that connects the Spiaggia Grande and Spiaggia del Fornillo beaches.
Ferries to Amalfi, Capri and Salerno depart from the town's harbour.
