The Amalfi Coast
Basic informations about the itinerary
Situated on the South of the Sorrentina Peninsula, in the Campania region, The Amalfi coast is a picturesque strip of land recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Site. It extends for approximately 50 kilometers, from Vietri sul Mare, passing through Amalfi, to Positano, where it joins the Sorrentina peninsula and the golf of Naples.
This coastline provides pleasure to all the five senses: smelling evocative expanses of lemon and orange trees with their heady fragrance, admiring small churches with their brightly-colored majolica domes, or multicolored homes with their flowered balconies, alleys, and hearing the sound of our steps along small cobblestoned streets which lead from the mountains all the way down to the sea. There are also many bays and beaches interrupted by extraordinary caves, one of them, it’s the famous “Grotta dello Smeraldo”, discovered in 1920 by a local fisherman and named for its emerald green water.
