The town of Amalfi, enjoyed a prestigious past when it was once a major naval power. Made of a labyrinth of narrow lanes and alleyways that climb the surrounding hills, the town features typical mediterranean style architecture with houses piled one on top of the other. Here you can sample the local Lemoncella drink or perhaps visit the celebrated "Paradise Cloister" built in Arabian style that dates back to the thirteenth century.
