Amalfi is the highlightAmalfi of the coast and a good place to base yourself and a wonderful destination for your sailing charter in Italy. The town was an independent republic during Byzantine times and one of the great naval powers, with a population of some 70,000. There is still the odd remnant of Amalfi's past glories around today, and the town has a quaint attractiveness with it's whitewashed courtyards and alleys that are fun to wander through. A world famous destination if you are chartering by sailing boat or if you are on a luxury mega yacht.

AmalfiAt the mouth of Valle dei Mulini (Mills' Valley), Amalfi overlooks the sea with its characteristic set of white houses on the rocks, narrow streets among arches, ancient towers to guard the town. Amalfi is a very picturesque town, characterized by enchanting panoramic views and cliffs rising sheer from the sea: a real Eden with a gentle climate, delightful beaches, buildings clinging to the rocky slope. The architectural value of its monuments, the beauty of the landscape and of the seaside, its traditions and food have made it an incomparable place, so that Renato Fucini said: "when people from Amalfi will go to Paradise, it will be an ordinary day for them". This wonderful town is a must to be seen for your sailing vacation on the Italian sea.

AmalfiThe most reliable legend about the origins of Amalfi tells the epic adventure of a group of Roman families who, under the empire of Constantine, decided to leave from Ravenna and move to Constantinople (the actual Istambul) but they were caught in a storm and obliged to take refuge on the Dalmatia coast. They interpreted what happened as an ill omen, so they changed their course and steered towards the Tyrrhenian Sea, where they founded a small village near the actual Palinuro, named Melphe. From there they continued to explore the nearest places and found a sheltered location with plenty of fresh water, where they decide to settle a colony: the village of people who came from Melphe, "a Melphe" in latin, the future Amalfi.
