Monuments and places of interest
Amalfi, built by the Romans, played a prominent role in controlling the Mediterranean Sea among the maritime republics of Pisa, Venice and Genoa. In the ninth century it acquired its maximum extension with a population of 70,000 people to be then devastated by the tsunami of 1343 that took away much of the old city with its population. Small in size, pervaded with culture and historical awareness, it is pleasant to walk through the picturesque and lively alleys.
