Amalfi Coast Tours
About the Amalfi Coast
In the 9th century, this city, nestled between the sea and mountains south of Naples was a maritime powerhouse (along with Genoa, Pisa, and Venice, they formed the Maritime Republics). This also meant that it was terribly wealthy, as Amalfi was trading extensively with North Africa and the Middle East. It’s no longer an economic force of nature, except when it comes to visitors, who come here to see, arguably, some of the most beautiful spots on the earth. It’s been on the radar of visitors since the 19th century. The air is crisp, the skies are blue, it’s almost always sunny, and the scenery is to die for.
