A trip to this small but important museum in the heart of town is a must for anyone who has an interest in anything other than pizza and shopping. Amalfi was an independent republic and a seafaring power when most of Europe was hiding out in the Middle Ages. On par with Venice, Genoa and Pisa, Amalfi's power and wealth may not have endured, but it explains why it has the great Duomo that it does, the pageantry that is still celebrated and traditions such as fine paper-making that last to this day.
The displays were well organized and usually in both English and Italian. In less than an hour you'll have a real sense that Amalfi's fame is not limited to its pretty views.
