Amalfi, ancient Maritime Republic

The town, nestled on the slope at the mouth of the Valle dei Mulini, has white houses standing along narrow covered streets. An ancient maritime republic, the noble Amalfi traded with the East even before Venice and Genoa and the Arab influences are still evident in the arches, the churches and the vaults of the medieval shipyards.
