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 Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
