amalfi coastTaking a vacation to Amalfi - the town on the world-renown Amalfi Coast?

Amalfi is a town in the province of Salerno found in the Campania region of Italy near the city of Salerno.

Aristocrats and upper class used to come to Amalfi for a vacation in the late 1930s. Today, it is a popular tourist escape for everyone who wants to enjoy the lavish sites.

Let's take a trip back in time.

Legend tell us that, the town was named after a nymph who had caught the eye of Hercules. At the command of the Gods, Amalfi was buried on the coast.

In the present day, the villagers still perform ancient rituals to pay respect for her beauty. Some historians relate that Amalfi was once a property of the Roman Empire. Over time Amalfi developed into the first strong maritime republic which made it very rich.

Residents learned to trade salt, precious metals like gold and silver.

They also were the first to bring paper into the continent. In 1643, nearly the end of the Renaissance period and the Middle Age, a plague struck the town and killed many people.  The rest of its residents eventually relocated to Naples in the next 200 years. 

The Amalfi Coast itself has five major towns: Amalfi, positano Amalfi coast, Ravello, Sorrento and the hautingly beautiful isle of Capri. If you're going there it's probably good planning to travel the Amalfi Coast from April to late September as this is the time when most accommodations are fully available and the hydrofoil boat system is running at peak capacity. In addition, the water along the coast is peaceful and the waves are not so big. Most visitors want to visit each town as they all have their benefits.

For example Positano is along the coast between Sorrento and the town of Amalfi.  Although the cafes and clothing stores here are on the expensive side, the quality is worth it. You can also lounge on the warm, inviting beach. You can also find the Santa Maria church surrounded by a wall which depicts fishing fox. It symbolizes the irreplaceable connection of seas and mountains in the Coast which moulded its landscape.

From Amalfi, you can also hop on a ferry going to Capri. Capri is known as the "Island of Dreams". On the downside: it can be crazy busy in the month of August and July.

During the other months of the year, it's not so bad, especially if you're here at night when the cruise ship crowds return to the boat. If you love hiking Capri is the best destination for you to visit because of the untamed green hillside trails.

And don't forget to take a boat to the famous Blue Grotto

The town of Ravello is situated up high in the mountains above the town of Amalfi, offering some of the most incredible scenery of the sea down below.

Because of the barbarian invasion years ago, it became a shelter place for people from the towns below fleeing to a safe place. Today, Ravello is a popular place with music and art lovers. In the salute for Wagner’s music, Ravello sponsors an annual music and arts festival during the summer season. You can enjoy listening to varieties of music and street presentations suitable for every traveller.  

So those are a few things you should know about the town of Amalfi and the Amalfi coast. Hopefully you can use them to decide where to travel to and plan your perfect Italian holiday!
