Travel video about the Amalfi destination in Italy.
The Amalfi Coast in southern Italy is both wild and beautiful, framed by the Tyrrhenian Sea and the foothills of the Lattari Mountains, as well as historic and picturesque towns. Stirring marks the beginning of a journey through the " Earth where the lemon trees bloom "and along one of the most beautiful panoramic paths in the world, the Amalfi. The secrets of Sorrento are hidden in numerous cloisters, gardens and courtyards and within the footsteps of European history. All came here, Greeks, Romans, Normans, French and Spaniards, to a place that from the antiquity has been used for the recreation. Until the late 19th century, the Amalfi coast was mainly accessible from the sea, but later a road, the Amalfitana, was built. It is about twenty-five miles long, with many sharp curves, and often seems to float over the sea. Amalfi is the throbbing heart of the coast and today a world-famous resort that is squeezed at the mouth of a valley of windmills. In the Middle Ages, along with Pisa, Genoa and Venice, Amalfi was one of the most powerful maritime republics in Italy and its prosperity showed. Far above the coast is Ravello which in the 9th century belonged to the League of Cities of the Republic of Amalfi and served as a defense against the Normans. It boasted of twelve churches more diverse convents and palaces in the medieval Arab architecture that emphasized a glorious era of the luxury and the abundance. One of the most beautiful roads in the world, the Amalfitana travels along an incredible coastline and through places rich in characters that are filled with the varied architecture that only the pages of history can endow.
