Amalfi is the main municipality of the Amalfi Coast – named la Divina, extending itself over 50 km from Vietri sul Mare to Positano and overlooking the gulf of Salerno.
Ancient Maritime Republic, rich in history and culture, Amalfi represents nowadays a famous touristic center, well-known all over the world for its landscape and monumental beauty, and, not an insignificant detail, for its good-tasting food.
From the creeks to the suggestive gorges, from the steps to the narrow streets, the typical white constructions, and the terraced gardens, Amalfi is a village for you to discover. Something not to miss is to visit the little workshops and to taste the most famous product of this land: the sfusato di Amalfi – a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) lemon. This is a typical ingredient of coast gastronomy and especially of Limoncello, the famous liqueur of Amalfi.
