We continue our exploration of Amalfi's historic center. The first part of our Amalfi photo gallery covered the area from piazza Flavio Gioia to the beginning of via Cardinal Marino Del Giudice. In the second part, we'll walk a bit further inland until the place called "Faenza." Then we return back following essentially the same route until we reach piazza Duomo paying more attention to the western side of our itinerary.
