Amalfi Coast Tour

Rating: 10 Rated 10 out of 10, based on 3 reviewsSee reviews

If you want to explore the Amalfi Coast making the most of your available time, then the Amalfi Coast Tour is what you were searching for.

Yes because - and we'd like to point it out - the tour lets you literally forget about the stress of finding a parking space available at each place where you want to stop, forget about when the next bus passes for the next place on your day planning, forget that driving among turns and turns is not exactly the same thing than driving on the highway. So, forget about all this. Literally.

Amalfi

Amalfi - Living Amalfi

Amalfi has Roman origins, but it had its heyday in the Middle Ages. It became an independent State on 1st September 839 with its own administration, depending only nominally from Byzantium. Amalfi was the 1st Maritime Republic of Italy. It fought versus Pisa, Genoa and Venice to control the sea traffic in the Mediterranean sea. The expert navigators from Amalfi invented the dry compass, which revolutionized the techniques of navigation. Amalfi minted its own currency since the first part of the eleventh century, the golden tarì, which had a good purchasing power.


Amalfi Cathedral, Duomo di Amalfi - Living Amalfi
The Cathedral of Amalfi is an architectural complex consisting of two side by side communicating churches. The oldest, which now houses a fine museum of religious art, dates back to the sixth century, while the other, founded in 987, is dedicated to the Apostle Andrew.
The bell tower of the Cathedral was built in three phases: the foundation in 1180, the two-storey with double or triple lancet windows in 1190, the belfry in 1276 on the initiative of the Amalfitan Archbishop Philip Augustariccio.

The Shipyard was built in Arabic style and is characterized by pointed arches and vaults. It consists of two lanes separated by ten pillars; before 1343 it was twice as long and had a third lane. On that date, a powerful sea storm destroyed half of it. It turns out to be the only almost intact existing medieval Italian shipyard and now is home to the "Museum of the Compass and the maritime Dukedom".

The Crypt was built in 1203 and, since 8th May 1208, it houses the remains of St. Andrew the Apostle, brought from Constantinople by Cardinal Pietro Capuano from Amalfi on the occasion of the Fourth Crusade.

Atrani

Atrani - Living Amalfi

Atrani is one of the smallest towns in Italy for extension and also one of the most densely populated. It opens onto the sea taking the form of a antrum, for which its founders attributed this name, according to a tradition dating back to the tenth century. Atrani looks like a nativity scene made of white and narrow alleys and quiet paths. The Atrani people are respectful of the guests who can benefit from the pleasantness of the place and a sincere and friendly welcome. The square is a true lounge outdoors, loved by travellers and many international filmmakers.


Atrani S. Salvatore de Birecto - Living Amalfi
The church of San Salvatore de Birecto in Atrani was the palace chapel of the Dukes of Amalfi, in which they were crowned. The church dates back to the tenth century and has a central plant of Byzantine style. The bronze door was given by the wealthy merchant Pantaleon Viaretta in the year 1087.
Atrani Santa Maria del Bando - Living Amalfi
The church of Santa Maria del Bando dates from the twelfth century, and was so named because from its summit the public tenders were launched. Next to it there is a cave where, according to the tradition, Masaniello sheltered before dying on 16th July 1647.

Atrani Santa Maria Maddalena - Living Amalfi
The Collegiate Church of St. Mary Magdalene (Santa Maria Maddalena) was founded in 1274 on the ruins of a medieval castle. Today it has a Baroque style and its entrance opens to the sea in a way that you’ll love forever.

Ravello

Ravello - Living Amalfi

Ravello will thrill you with its melancholy tones and timeless beauty. The history of Ravello is linked to the noble family of the Rufolos, whose members where bankers of the Angevin kings of Naples (XIII-XIV cent.). The monuments worth a visit are at least the Cathedral and the Rufolo and Cimbrone villas.


Duomo di Ravello - Living Amalfi
The Cathedral of Ravello was founded in 1086 by the bishop of Ravello Orso Papice. The Crypt houses the Cathedral Museum, where they kept relics of historical and artistic medieval Ravello.
The Art Gallery houses works of art from medieval and modern religious topics. Among these is particularly important the marble bust of a crowned woman, which is traditionally identified with Sigilgaita de Marra, wife of Nicola Rufolo.
Ravello Villa Rufolo - Living Amalfi
The Villa Rufolo in Ravello was the town residence of the Rufolos, the most powerful noble family. Its construction dates back to the late thirteenth century, when the Rufolos assumed considerable importance in the Kingdom of Sicily. The building is fortified: in particular two towers were raised. Inside the Villa there is a wonderful cloister dating back to the early fourteenth century, in Moorish style. During the nineteenth century the villa was owned by the Scottish Neville Reid, who beautified it with colorful floral gardens, in which Richard Wagner found inspiration for the "Garden of Klingsor" of his "Parsifal".

Ravello Villa Cimbrone - Living Amalfi
The Villa Cimbrone in Ravello takes its name from the place where it rises, which once was a wide forest. It has been enhanced especially during the nineteenth century by the Romantic poets for its breathtaking landscape.
