One of the pearls of the peninsula, Amalfi is the most ancient Maritime Republic and the only one that at the time coined its own coin, the Tarì.
The singular architecture of white houses and the extraordinary landscape it exhibits make this city a popular destination for tourists from all over the world.
And if the history of the city that gave its name to the entire coast is profound and fascinating, the legends that revolve around its origins are no less so. It is said that Hercules, in love with the nymph Amalfi, wanted to keep his body in the most beautiful place in the world, surrounding it with trees which still adorn the coast and from which the local population produces the famous liqueur better known as bottled gold, limoncello.
