Amalfi today hosts a large number of guests coming from all over the world, but there was a time when the town, being a powerful Maritime Republic had its moment of maximum splendor between the 10th and 12th Century. In memory of its ancient power, every four years, in June, Amalfi holds the Historic Regata of the Marine Republics.
