Amalfi lacks to the dramatic first-look that the houses stacked slong the coast in Positano give you--but Amalfi was a world class sea power between the 7th and 11th centuries, and this military and trading power is reflected in its architecture, especially in the Duomo di Sant' Andrea, which is a dramatic, 62 step climb out of Amalfi's main piazza. Chiostro del Paradiso, the Cloister of Paradise, was built in 1266 and is an architectural treasure.

Amalfi's beauty is internal, like the cloister. From the narrow stairways off the main street, to the architectual styles that imcorporate details brought from around the world, Amalfi is a place to wander--and perhaps to stay in for a few days. Ravello and Positano are close by, and can be done as day trips from Amalfi.
