AMALFI COAST PRIVATE TOUR & TRIPS
THE BEST TOUR TO DISCOVER AMALFI
Visit Amalfi coast
HISTORY OF AMALFI
Amalfi is an ancient maritime Republic. From the 6th century until the 14th century Amalfi was considered a very important port town, one of the richest port towns in Italy for trade. Its decline began in the 12th century and Amalfi was completely destroyed first by an earthquake and later, because of the tsunami that followed. This decimated the population, turning a city into a village of hundreds of inhabitants. Amalfi reconquered its importance in the 20th century with the arrival of tourism.
SAINT ANDREW CATHEDRAL IN AMALFI
Located just below Mt. Cerreto, Amalfi is well-known for its marvellous Cathedral dedicated to Saint Andrew the apostle, founded in the 9th century. The amazing majolica roof, bronze doors from Constantinople, baroque style and various paintings and statues in marble and bronze are the highlights of this cathedral and also its 12th century mosaics.
THE CLOISTER OF PARADISE
The Cathedral is connected to the Cloister of Paradise which is composed of slender columns and arches that recall the Norman/Arabic architecture. The cloister contains a selection of remains dated back to Roman times, where the noble families of Amalfi were buried.
ARSENAL AND THE MUSEUM OF PAPER IN AMALFI
Near the waterfront visit the Arsenal and see remains of the warships and armaments from its days as a glorious republic. A short walk away you have the opportunity to take a tour in the Amalfi Paper museum founded in 1969 in an old paper mill. During your private tour see the production of handmade paper and the operation of the old water mill powered by the river.
