A little late getting out, but otherwise one of my favorite trips and a great way to go from Amalfi to Florence via train directly instead a ridiculous number of taxis, buses, and trains and rip-off taxi artists. Ticket counter in a bad mood because I asked for my boarding pass and one question, but that was the only downside. Maybe she was having a bad day.Read More Read Less
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 city of Salerno lies on the Gulf of Salerno, in the Salerno region of Italy. The city lies on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is close to the Amalfi Coast and is perhaps best known for being the home of the world's first medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana. Being the cultural hub of the region, Salerno has many things for visitors to see and do. The city has some lovely pedestrian streets and large piazzas and for visitors who have a car they can easily drive around the city as traffic is not a problem and parking is available in most areas.
Salerno is located at the geographical centre of a triangle nicknamed Tourist Triangle of the 3 P (namely a triangle with the corners in Pompeii, Paestum and Positano). This provides Salerno with a unique opportunity to attract tourists who visit the city to take in sights that include the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi, the Duomo and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana.
