Amalfi, the first Southern Maritime
Republic, is our destination for today's full-day guided walking
tour. We begin with
a visit to Amalfi's Duomo and the Cloister of Paradise before
an optional visit to the Civic Museum to view the tavole
amalfitane, the maritime code created by the Amalfitans
and which regulated seafaring activity for over 700 years. Historical
Details about Amalfi
our Amalfi tour, you can still see the ruins of what was the
largest naval shipyard in medieval Europe. As well, you can
tour a restored and functioning paper mill, recalling the days
when the Amalfitans took the art of paper-making from the Arabs
and made it their own, turning out precious paper products
for export throughout the Mediterranean. The
tradition of nostalgic paper-making continues to this day,
and you can buy characteristic replicas of historic Amalfi
letter paper, cards, maps, etc. Also, the area - like much
of southern Italy - is marked by the presence of Saracen towers,
built to guard against incursions by the Arabs and, later,
the Turks. Worthy of a tour while in Amalfi is the Civic Museum,
which has the only remaining copy of the Amalfi Maritime Code,
Time permitting, we can include a tour
of the medieval mountain town of Ravello to visit the Villa
Ruffolo or Villa Cimbrone and their fabulous gardens, or we
can drive to Positano for a visit of the Church of Sant'Assunta
and have time to stroll through the colorful, narrow streets
or visit a nearby ceramic factory.
Known as the "City of Music", Ravello is
home to remarkable medieval villas with immaculately manicured
gardens. Spend a morning or afternoon in this tiny medieval
town perched high above the coast enjoying amazing views and
walking tours to the spectacular Villa Cimbrone or Villa Ruffolo.
We will recommend a wonderful outdoor restaurant for lunch.
