Amalfi City and harbour from just outside the village of Pontone. The sailing ship is one of a growing fleet of passenger vessels that are using wind propulsion as well as motors.

Amalfi: Hotel Albergo Cappuccin

Amalfi - Albergo Cappuccin

Currently lying empty and drifting into dereliction, the hotel still hangs over the harbour with stately elegance. The green exterior lift to take guests from the garage up to the hotel is evidence of this once very grand establishment. The longer it lays empty, the costs of restoration will escalate exponentially which is a great shame.

Amalfi – Festa di Sant Andrea


The start of the procession, where the effigy/reliquary of Sant Andrea is borne out of the Duomo before being carried through the town, out to the sea front, onto the beach to bless the local fishing boats and eventually back to the Duomo.
Link to video showing the impressive finale of the procession, where the procession runs all the way up the steep steps to the Duomo.
