|The Amalfi Coast is situated on the Sorrento peninsula. Amalfi, with its wonderful views, is the main town of the Amalfi Coast. White houses cling onto the rocks opposite the Saint Andrew Cathedral and the main square. The town of Amalfi is filled with alleys, and steps, with 57 steps to get up to the famous Cathedral of St. Andrew and Cloister of Paradise, a treasure of medieval architecture. The narrow alleyways of the town wind through the hills and up the slopes between the sea and mountains. While visiting, don't miss the beaches as they are some of the most beautiful on the coast. With crystal clear water, it is perfect for swimming, scuba diving or boating. Also, worth the visit is Palazzo Morelli and its Civic Museum. Save time for shopping, especially for the lemon liquor which is locally produced and the famous handmade paper created in town as well.
