The apartment is located on the topmost floor of a building of medieval origin.
The building is part of the ancient palaces that were inhabited by the Dukes of
Amalfi in the eleventh century, when Amalfi was a powerful Sea Republic. You
will reach it from the main street of Amalfi along a short pedestrian pathway,
which includes 105 steps.
The pathway will give you a first brief contact with the maze of narrow
passageways and stairways that make up the incredible and spell-binding street
structure of the historical core of Amalfi.
To reach the apartment you will need to climb 45 more steps inside the building.
Once you arrive to your apartment, you will find out that it was well worth
climbing a few steps: you will be staying in a truly privileged place in the
most ancient and central part of Amalfi.
The apartment is beautiful, roomy and well furnished. It has very high ceilings,
and a lot of windows. Each window frames a piece of the charming panorama of
Amalfi, as if it were a painting: the Cathedral, the small port and the sea, or
the bunch of houses of the historical center, which clings to the rocky spur
that surround it, or the terraces where lemons are grown.
When you climb to the terrace that covers the entire apartment, you will have
this same panorama in all around you for 360 degrees: you will be able to see
the entire Amalfi, from the sea to the narrow and steep valley that holds the
village. The view of the Cathedral of Amalfi and of its famous bell tower, with
the sea on the background, is particularly suggestive. At sunset, you will be
able to see the golden tesserae of the mosaic of its façade glare under the last
rays of the sun that sets on the sea, while the shadow of the evening grow
longer and longer from the surrounding mountains.
You will reach the terrace along an external stairway. There you will find sun
lounges, tables and chairs and many pots full of flowers.
From Appartamento Enrietta A you will be able to walk in five minutes to the
square of the Cathedral of Amalfi, which is the "sitting room" of the village.
Here there are elegant shops and excellent cafes, pastry shops and restaurants
that setup their tables outdoor. You will find it very pleasant to stop here to
enjoy a cappuccino, an Italian ice cream or a "delizia al limone" (a "lemon
delight", the traditional cake of the Amalfi Coast), in front of the splendid
and imposing façade of the Cathedral.
If you walk for 50 more meters (55 yards) you will find the large Flavio Gioia
square, with its promenade along the sea, the access to the beaches, and the bus
station for the buses that connect all the villages along the coast, including
Ravello and Positano, as well as Pompeii and Paestum. Here there is also the
quay, where you will be able to board ferries or rent boats to visit the coast
from the sea and reach Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Ischia, Naples, Salerno and
To stay at Appartamento Enrietta A you will not need a car. Public transportation
is comfortable, cheap and efficient. If you have a car, you will be able to
reserve a parking spot, to be paid locally.

The Amalfi Coast region
If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.
The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.
If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.
If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.
An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.
So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.
Amalfi, situated at the mouth of the Valley of the Mills, with its characteristic groups of houses clinging to the rocks, overlooks the sea. It is a maze of narrow alleyways comprised of archways, portals and ancient towers that stand guard over the town.
The origin of the town date back to the IV century. During late medieval times Amalfi became an independent maritime republic, rich and opulent due to intense trade and cultural exchanges with the Arab and Byzantine world. The city was renowned for its trade and diplomatic relations throughout the Mediterranean, Flavio Gioia’s invention and development of the marine compass and the “Amalfitan Tables” - the first maritime legal code. It was also during this time that mills of Amalfi began to produce paper rather than parchment. The paper was used for all the official acts and documents of the Court of the Duchy of Naples. The particular variety of Amalfitan lemon “the Sfusato Amalfitano” crossed the borders of Europe, and was exported throughout the world.
The architectural and artistic values of its monuments and historical buildings, the indescribable beauty of its landscapes, its folklore and traditions have made, and still make, Amalfi a place without comparison, so much so that it has been said: “For an Amalfitan the day he goes to heaven is just like any other day”.
