Rua Nova Mercatorum

Rua Nova Mercatorum Review

A tunnel-like passageway also known as Via dei Mercanti, the evocative Rua Nova was the main thoroughfare of medieval Amalfi, when the main road was a raging torrent. Still the town's most fascinating "street," it is especially wonderful when the light from alleys and windows plays on its white walls. Stretching almost the length of the main street, it ends at a medieval-era contrada, or neighborhood, with a fountain known as Capo di Ciuccio (donkey's head), where mules would refesh themselves after the climb down from the hills.
