Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.  The town of Amalfi was the capital of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200.  In the 1920s and 1930s, Amalfi was a popular holiday destination for the British upper class and aristocracy.
