Costiera amalfitana.Penisola sorrentina from Ravel to Positano
filled by Giulia
The Amalfi Coast is one of the most famous tourist itineraries of Italy, thanks to the exceptional beauty of the landscapes that follow one another in an endless landscape of rocks, picturesque villages, lush vegetation and the beautiful blue sea.
Access to the Sorrento Peninsula by Motorway A3 Naples-Salerno, exit at the Castellammare di Stabiae. The path can then continue along the SS 163. A coastal path passing through Vico Equense, Sorrento, Positano and Praiano. It then goes on to Amalfi, Minori, Maiori, Cetara, Vietri sul Mare, Salerno. All these towns are located between the Gulf of Naples and Salerno, divided among themselves by Lattari.
The villas of Ravello
In the Salerno portion of the peninsul, the landscape is unmistakable: a high limestone wall engraved by beautiful bays and narrow valleys, overlooking the sea. Here, small bays and harbors created by the workings of the waves draw embroidery rock dominated by the intense color of citrus trees, which in turn helped shape the steep walls in the form of terraces. Ravello is the queen of villas and gardens on the sea, perched on Mount Civita in the middle of the valleys formed by rivers and Queen Dragon Minor.
Ravello and Amalfi
Wedged between Ravello and Amalfi, between the cliff and the sea appears Atrani. The medieval urban structure is topped by interweaving traditional flyover, while the small boats that go down the beach every evening for fishing in the sea, dotted with lights. At the end of the valley overlooking the Amalfi mills. Characteristic clusters of houses leaning against the rock wall, protected by the old guard towers and connected by arches and alleyways. Indelible is the impression left by the close relationship with the Byzantine and Arabic. Amalfi is savored sitting at a table outside a bar, sipping an aperitif or an orange ice.
In the direction of Positano, worth stopping the fjord of Furore, the only one in southern Europe.
It is accessible from the sea along a bridge, or walk through a small staircase. Six more miles of switchbacks here and Positano.
From Positano to Sorrento
Positano is another balcony on the precipice blue waves of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
It’s the triumph of the color yellow, the Positano yellow which paints houses and gardens and dyeing fabrics with shades unique arabesque. The exclusive villas and houses the white-domed Byzantine are the domain of celebrities and artists, today as yesterday, giving it that special touch of sophistication. And this contrast between the simple life of fishermen and refined meetings of the leaders of fashionable society captures the first time. Positano radiates light in every moment of the day. And at night glare of innumerable lights that make it seem like a glitzy showcase on holidays.
Sorrento is a bustling town known for the production of oranges and lemons and fine wines.
From Mount Costanzo, the view sweeps between the Gulf of Naples and Salerno, Capri and the islands of the sirens.
Enchanting island of Capri: the Park of Augustus, Anacapri and Villa San Michele, from whose terrace you can admire a splendid panorama.
From Capri by boat you can make an excursion to the famous Grotta Azzurra and a tour of the island by boat.
