Amalfi lies at the mouth of a deep ravine, at the foot of Monte Cerreto in the province of Salerno, in the region of Campania, Italy, on the Gulf of Salerno. It is surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. 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.
Amalfi is the main town of the coast on which it is located, named Costiera Amalfitana. It has become a very active tourist destination together with other towns on the same coast, such as Positano, Ravello and others. Amalfi is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
