Amalfi Coast


 

The region of coastline stretching from Sorrento, South of Naples, to Amalfi, so called Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO world heritage site that is renowned for its natural beauty as well as its characteristic towns. You’ll find houses and buildings painted in fresh pastels, stuck into cliffs and canyons … the flowery spectacle set in the cliffs framed by the endless blue sky and sparkling water.

The crystal clear ocean waters and breathtaking landscapes are offset by the famous towns of Sorrento, Praiano, Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi, whose charming architecture elegantly blends into the mountainous landscape. The Island of Capri is a favorite destination for celebrities and is known for its sheer cliffs, amazing grottos and crystal blue water.

The Island if Ischia is located above an ancient submerged volcanic crater and is rich in thermal water, making it a great source for natural spas and thermal baths. Of historical and archaeological interest are the ancient towns of Pompeii and Ercolano, preserved for all time by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Major attractions: Pompeii and Ercolano archeological sites, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Ischia and smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast, the archeological site of Paestum by buffalo mozzarella farms, and the town of Castellabbate along the Cilento Coast south of Salerno. Major theaters and music events: Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Ravello Festival in Ravello.

Ravello


 

Between the Valley del Dragone and the Valley della Regina, up a supremely panoramic narrow road, which twists up from the coast towards the mountains, one finds Ravello . Its dominating position on the hill top offers spectacular views over the Amalfi Coast.
 
 
The tranquility of the town greatly appealed to poets and writers and international jet set. The wealth of art works in Ravello is preserved in numerous ecclesiastical buildings such as the Cathedral of St Pantaleone, Patron saint of the town, a building which is striking because of its marble work; the adjacent bell tower, the Church of St Martino, the Church of St Angelo and the Church of St Giovanni del Toro.
 
The heart of Ravello is the Piazza Vescovado, with the Castle ruins, the Cathedral and Palazzo Rufolo. Villa Rufolo should not be missed, a building which is home to much of the art of Ravello and surrounded by splendid gardens, where numerous musical and cultural events are held. Villa Cimbrone is also well worth a visit.

Positano


 

Positano's position is unique: stacked vertically on the slopes of the Lattari mountains. Sheltered by mounts Comune, Santa Maria a Castello, Sant'Angelo dei Pizzi, Paipo, Canocchia and Campo dei Galli, Positano has an enviably mild climate which makes it a perfect seaside resort.

 
There are panoramic views across the water towards the islets of Li Galli, known also as the "Sirenuse". It was on these three islets, the Gallo Lungo, Castellucco and the Rotonda, that, according to legend, the Sirens lived. Immersed in a spectacular landscape; Positano is not only an International tourist destination but also an important center for fashion design.
 
Indeed, one of the town's major attractions is its vast array of boutiques, lining the narrow lanes and alleyways with their displays of colourful garments, typical of the town. To visit: the prehistoric caves, the Li Galli islands, the Roman Villas and underwater archaeological remains. During the summer season visitors can attend events such as the Festivals held at Montepertuso and Positano, and the International Art of Dance Awards.
