Perched upon cliffs in the Mediterranean, Amalfi in Italy is a visual symphony of bright homes stacked like colorful puzzle pieces, interspersed with lush lemon groves and surrounded by turquoise waters. Once a maritime powerhouse, this town now thrives on tourism, while retaining its historic charm.

Amalfi's heart beats in Piazza Duomo, a lively square that houses the symbolic Cathedral of St. Andrew, a unique blend of Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic, and Baroque architectural styles. Climbing the steep steps to the cathedral offers rewarding views of the town and the sparkling sea.

The locals, proud of their maritime history, celebrate the Regatta of the Ancient Maritime Republics, a boating competition with Venice, Pisa, and Genoa. This event, steeped in tradition and pageantry, displays Amalfi's enduring love for the sea.

The famous Amalfi Drive, a narrow winding road, offers breathtaking coastal views. This route leads to Positano, another picturesque town known for its pebble beaches and narrow shopping streets.

Amalfi's culinary scene is as appealing as its landscape. The local diet is heavy on seafood, pasta, and fresh produce, with lemons playing a starring role. Limoncello, a sweet liqueur made from the region's lemons, is a must-try.
