You only have one day to visit Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast?
http://www.mypositanoprivatecar.it/
Nicola (Nick)

Our Pompeii and Amalfi Day tour will leave you unforgettable memories lasting a lifetime as you will discover some of the most amazing places of our ” Bel Paese”, Italy.
Our tour includes a a visit of Positano, considered the Monte Carlo of our country, in this case not for the casino and the unbridled luxury and ostentatious, but for the way in which it was built: perched on a high ground. Positano is a vertical city, completely perpendicular to the sea, and it is crossed by a main road and by many “steps”, true symbol of the city, leading to the sea and within which there are many and delightful shops selling both souvenirs handicraft products.

Along the panoramic road you’ll find Amalfi, true pearl of the homonym coast. From the Cathedral, the museum of paper (the Amalfi paper, or Bambagina paper, is a very special kind), from the Valley of the Ferriere, to shopping in the city center shops, you’re spoiled for choice. You will be seduced by the scent of lemons of Amalfi, savoring a sorbet or a treat in front of one of the most romantic landscapes of Italy.

Not far from Amalfi there is Ravello, also known as “Spirit Home”. Visit Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, to realize that we brought you in heaven. Densely populated in summer and bustling all year for the presence of so many festivals, exhibitions and events, Ravello also boasts a beautiful Auditorium Gardens and secret corners to discover.

We will give you also the chance to visit the archaeological site of Pompeii, one of the most visited in Italy. Here, you can walk among the ruins of Pompeii, founded by Oscans in around the 6th centuries BC and then buried under 6 meters of ash and lapilli Because of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
No wonder: the chance to admire a large and prosperous Roman city in an extraordinary state of preservation, thanks to the layer of ash and lava several meters high that destroyed it, are more unique than rare, and visiting it you can have an exceptional insight into the life of the time. Hidden for 1700 years no one could indicate where the ancient center in the past, returned to light by chance, the excavations of Pompeii today are among the most famous in the world and continue to increase what the second attraction of Italy to offer. Turn through the streets of ancient Pompeii means to admire an impressive amount of villas, houses, temples, stadiums, touch the daily life of a world of bakers and nobles, musicians and prostitutes, innkeepers and doctors, many of whom surprised by the eruption as they were running away from the city and immortalized forever by their footprints in the ashes, brought to light by the technique of the casts while protecting the face of the mystery, huddle against each other waiting for the end, they tried in vain to flee carrying their chests with their valuable inside. An experience like Pompeii not found elsewhere in the world.

Among the things you must see there are:

The Forum of Pompeii. A small open area, where there were many shops, usually built with lava and tuff and cemented with clay.
The House of the Faun, a house buried during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79, found after the archaeological excavations of Pompeii: we talk about one of the big houses of the ancient city that owes its name to a bronze statue, depicting a satyr, situated in the “impluvium”.

The Amphitheater of Pompeii is the oldest building for gladiatorial shows. The building, which came to house 20,000 people, was built in the south-east of the city. This choice was due to the fact that it was necessary that the amphitheater was easily accessible from the outside.
Villa dei Misteri is the most important house of Pompeii, at first called Villa Item. It is located on a small hill from which it was enjoying a beautiful view on today’s Bay of Naples.
The big theater, despite having undergone several renovations, has maintained over the centuries the original Greek structure. Having been built on the slope, there was no need to add more stone structures.
A fundamental stage of our tour is Ravello. Three hundred and fifty meters above sea level, for its spectacular views from the gardens of ancient patrician villas, Ravello is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Probably the most beautiful is the Villa Cimbrone, with balconies which can take pictures that look like postcards. The Cathedral of San Pantaleo is worth visiting for its architectural treasures that for centuries have captured the attention of Boccaccio, Wagner, Lawrence and many other artists and writers.

It’s time to go back to the sea and finally reach Amalfi. It too part of UNESCO heritage, its foundation dates back to Roman times, but the city reached its splendor as one of four maritime republics competing for control of the Mediterranean. Today Amalfi is the largest and busiest city of the coast, but it is also a great place to shop in the quaint shops of downtown, while enjoying a terrific ice cream or a lemon granita. Among the most beautiful architecture of Amalfi appear the imposing Cathedral of St. Andrew, preceded by a long staircase, the Ancient arsenals of the Republic, and the Cloister of Paradise.

Last but not least is Positano. From the street you see a mosaic of colored houses that seem mounted one above the other, and it’s lovely down the narrow streets to the port from where you can see the silhouette of Capri. Other highlights include the Saracen towers, the tiled dome of the Church of San Luca Evangelista, the picturesque Convent of Santa Maria a Castro and … it’s time to stop at the beach to relax and enjoy the warm sun of the Amalfi Coast!

 

The appellation Divene Coast certainly wasn’t chosen at random;its 55 km of unique and beautiful coastline have made this area one of the wonders of the world.

The coastline embodies thirteen characteristic municipalities:
Amalfi,Atrani,Cetara,Conca dei Marini,Furore,Maiori,Minori,Positano,Praiano,Ravello, Scala,Tramonti and Vietri sul Mare

Thirteen towns with different traditions but merged in a unique setting ,a perfect combination between sea and sky,amongst breathtaking cliffs with minute houses teetering on them,,including unparalleled boating and relaxing walks in the numerous trails

All this wouldn’t have been enought to make these towns sought -after,world – wide tourist destinations:established as small villages of fishermen and artisans,they’ve managed to preserve the flavor of tradition,making in their main feature,reason for growth,wealth and fame

Fashion creations,pottery workshops,culinary product and dance and music events:small fragments of originality and art of which the coast has always been the cradle

The area also offers tasty culinary products that visitors must absolutely try before they leave:the golden lemon,undisputed protagonist of many recipes such as limoncello and the lemon delight; and the local cusine ,which considers the sea not only a tourist attraction,but essence and flower to be found in every dish

Getting Around on the Coastline
There are two main terrestrial transport companies,which cover the entire coastal territory.
The long distance line Sita,has its terminals at Amalfi and Sorrento,respectively the hearts of the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Penisula .
The bus departs from the above locations every 30 minutes during summer and 60 minutes in winter.

In addition,from Sorrento you can reach other destinations on the Peninsula with the same line such as Sant’Agata and Nerano;whereas from Amalfi,you will find services for Minori and Maiori,Atrani,Ravello and the other coastal towns.
You will also find local company lines in the peninsula,departing from the Sorrento station

The little orange bus Mobility Amalfi Coast however,cover the domestic territory in Positano,even making stops at the two higher village,Montepertuso and Nocelle and the connecting route between the two village and the internal route of the charming town Ravello.In order to reach locations outside the coastal territory,such as Naples and the Vesuvian areas,not related to the routes,you can take the Circumvesuviana railway line from sorrento

Caserta and Paestum,on the other hand,are accessible only via the sita bus lines,and/or the Trenitalia railway company

There are also numerous taxi companies,car and scooter rentals,and of course you can also get around by sea
In this regard,among the pubblic maritime companies,there is positano Jet,which covers the Journey between Positano and Capri;the Alicost and Gescab transit instead between Amalfi,Positano,Capri and Ischia,allowing you to get on board at the town’s ports/docks;and finally travelmar which links Salerno,Amalfi and Positano

Try to get to Capri as soon as possible. As soon as you arrive on the island, at Marina Grande, you will find the various box offices of the different shipping companies: here you can buy the ticket for the island’s tour by sea with the blue Grotto. A great way to get a full overview of Capri! You can choose the lap of the Full Island, which also passes through the Faraglioni or you can go to the Blue Grotto. We recommend the round trip!

Once back to Marina Grande take a direct bus to Anacapri (20/25 minutes). From there with the chairlift you can go up Mount Solaro.
At this point, you can choose to stop for lunch in one of Anacapri’s restaurants or have a quick snack and go straight to St. Michael’s Villa, the home-museum of the Swedish writer Axel Munthe, where archaeological finds collected by the doctor around For the world and a terrace overlooking the infinity.

After the relax in Piazzetta, you can take a stroll through Via Camerelle, the luxury shopping street where the most fashionable (and also fashion-makers) can look back on what is perhaps the road with the highest concentration of high fashion stores in the world. At the end of the road continue on Via Tragara until you reach the spectacular viewpoint overlooking the Faraglioni.
In the upper part of Positano there are two small villages Montepertuso and Nocelle.Here there are many restaurants:restaurant TAGLIATA restaurant RITROVO, restaurant DONNA ROSA.
To reach the upper part of Positano you must to take the bus with the inscription on the glass MONTEPERTUSO -NOCELLE

From Nocelle you can take the path of the gods ( if you like you can also do the reverse path .NOCELLE – PRAIANO OR NOCELLE – BOMERANO )
Where to start the Sentiero degli Dei

The Sentiero degli Dei begins in Bomerano, a fraction of Agerola. Walkers can reach Agerola by one of the buses run by the Sita coach company which depart from Amalfi.

Ask the driver to let you off at the Bomerano stop. From here, follow the road signs which will lead you to the start of the walk.

You can also start the Sentiero degli Dei from Praiano, but this route entails climbing up a long flight of steps to reach the Colle Serra Pass, some 580 meters above sea level.

Following the Sentiero degli Dei

The route is indicated by white and red signs with 02 written on them. From Colle Serra, walkers make their way downhill until reaching a fountain, to the left of which there is an old mule path, which begins in Praiano.

The Sentiero degli Dei continues along the road to the right. Below, on the road climbed by walkers who start from Praiano, the Convent of San Domenico can be seen.
At this stage, the path becomes more tortuous as it passes through the Vallone Grarelle via a series of ascents and descents and breathtaking panoramas until reaching Nocelle, a fraction of Positano.

In ancient times, Nocelle could only be reached on foot, by way of a steep flight of steps commencing in Positano.
Today, walkers can decide whether to make their way downhill by bus or on foot via the 1500 steps which lead to the district of Arienzo.

In the summer, it is well worth descending a further 300 steps to the Arienzo beach, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea.
From Arienzo, following the SS163 for circa 1 kilometer, walkers soon reach the center of Positano.

Agerola is famous for its fiordilatte, a particular type of fresh mozzarella cheese.
Before you start the walk, stop off in one of the town’s salumeria, where you can purchase some focaccia and fior di latte to sustain you during the journey: the perfect ingredients for a pic-nic worthy of the gods!
If you’d rather have something a little more substantial, once past the village of Nocelle, continue for circa 1 kilometer along the recently constructed carriageway, to the La Tagliata restaurant, where you can dine on the terrace, enjoying delicious food and a marvelous view of the sea and the island of Capri.

Towns along the coast

AMALFI

The heart of the coast, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
Amalfi dates back to the 4th century AD, when Roman refugees settled here. It reached its apex in 839 AD, when it declared its independence from the Byzantine Duchy of Naples, and became the first Maritime Republic in Italy. For centuries it was the only link between Europe and the whole of the Byzantine Levant. The first code of maritime laws, the Amalfian Laws, were compiled here, and remained in force until the 16th century. Amalfi also pioneered the use of the compass, and circulated its own currency, the “tarì”. Amalfi’s unique charm has always attracted artists, writers, painters, directors, and even one of the twelve apostles, saint Andrew, who has a 10th century cathedral dedicated to his honour, where his relics are housed in the crypt. Amalfi is enclosed by a natural amphitheatre where the Canneto river runs through the lush Valle Delle Mulini: water-powered paper mills transformed rags into precious paper. A 13th century paper mill now houses a fascinating paper museum.

ATRANI

This is one of Italy’s smallest municipalities, where just 850 inhabitants live in an area of 0.12 square kilometres.
The picturesque village is nestled between the Civita mountains to the east and Mount Aureo to the west, in the valley of the Dragone river, which takes its name from the fire-breathing dragon that, legend has it, lives in the area. The town has maintained its traditional medieval layout. The small San Salvatore piazza with its stone fountain is the village’s principal meeting point, and the perfect spot to appreciate the tranquillity of the village.
The village was originally home to the aristocracy of the Maritime Republic. The Doges received the investiture in the palatine chapel of the San Salvatore De Birecto church, before continuing in solemn procession to Amalfi. Visit the Santa Maria Maddalena Collegiate church, and the churches of San Salvatore De Birecto, Santa Maria Immacolata, Santa Maria Del Bando, Carmine and San Michele Fuori Le Mura.

CETARA

The village derives its name from cetarius, or tuna. It is home to the last active tuna fishing fleet on the coast. The catch is processed in local family-run artisan workshops. This is a great town for gourmands, with wonderful restaurants. The local speciality, the very particular colatura anchovy sauce, was invented by chance by local monks, and bears the Slow Food designation, recognised by the Ministry of Agriculture. This amber liquid is a by-product of the anchovy drying process, and is used in all the quality restaurants.
Explore the town by following the road down towards the beach, and marvel at the wonderful arabesque town layout. Saracen pirates settled here for almost a century.
Grandonetto Ausilio Di Cava, a fisherman who brought prince Frederick, the second son of King Ferdinand I of Aragon, safely from Salerno to Naples in 1845, thus escaping the Conspiracy of the Barons, is buried in the San Pietro Apostolo church (988 AD).

CONCA DEI MARINI

A Roman colony since 481 BC, Conca Dei Marini was a staunch ally of Rome in the Second Punic War. The town has a long history of trade with all the countries of the Mediterranean. The area was popular with princess Margaret of England and the 1960s jet set. The Costiera Tower was built in 1563 to defend against Saracen raids. It stands on the Capo di Conca promontory, where the Emerald Grotto is situated, one of the Mediterranean’s most exemplary grottoes, full of stalactites and stalagmites in strange shapes.
The deconsecrated Santa Rosa monastery (1681), today a 5-star hotel, dominates the top of the town. It was here, in the 18th century, that a Dominican nun invented the tasty Sfogliatella di Santa Rosa sweet pastry, at one time only available to a select few.
Visit the San Michele Arcangelo church, the Sant’Antonio da Padova church, the San Giovanni Battista church, and the San Pancrazio church, surrounded by a panoramic olive grove.

FURORE

Escaping Romans, barbarians at their backs, took refuge in these mountains, and founded the first settlements. Furore has remained, owing to its particular topology, an unassailable stronghold, even during the times of the Saracen raids. The fjord makes for a natural port, where trade flourished, encouraging the growth of the burgeoning paper industry and agriculture: the waters of the Schiato river powered paper and grain mills as they descended from the Lattari mountains.
Furore takes its name from the particular fury with which the sea batters the coast during storms, and from the deafening, terrifying roar of the waves against the cliffs and in the fjord.
Furore is home to four churches: San Giacomo, San Michele, Sant’Elia and Santa Maria Della Pietà, the latter once home to one of the most important and prestigious confraternities of the Diocese.

MAIORI

The town of Maiori boasts the longest beach on the coast. It was the seat of the Customs of the Admiralty. Today, the main street is a pedestrian area and popular shopping destination. The magnificent fortified citadel of San Nicola De Thoro Plano rises up behind the town. The citadel is capable of housing one thousand people. It is currently privately owned, but it is open to visitors. Visit the Santa Maria De Olearia Abbey, also known as the catacombs, made up of three places of worship with a wealth of frescoes, painted by un-named abbots. The name Olearia derives from the nearby olive mill. By boat, visit the Annunziata Grotto (with its small lake), the Acqua Sulfurea Grotto (curative spa waters for skin conditions), the Pannona Grotto with its multi-coloured stalactites and stalagmites, and the Porta di Monte Piano grotto, of particular speleology interest.

MINORI

Minori isn’t far from Maiori, along the cliff top above the sea. As its name suggests, it is smaller than Maiori, and was a popular destination for Roman patricians from the 1st century AD, as testified by the ancient maritime villa, the only one of its kind along the coast. The Roman villa with its antiquorum (1st century) was built around a vast courtyard garden, originally boasting a pool at its centre.
Minori was famous in the early 19th century for the production of handmade pasta, particularly for the local ndunderi pasta, and the tradition continues to this day, thanks to a handful of excellent pasta masters.
The town is surrounded by lush terraces of lemons, the most important ingredients for traditional local handmade sweets and limoncello liquor.

PONTONE

This small village in the municipality of Scala was the first fortified bulwark in the territory of Amalfi in medieval times. Over the centuries Pontone, the castrum scalelle, became the picturesque village it is today, where the relaxing atmosphere has made it a favoured destination for visitors from near and far. Visit the ruins of Sant’Eustachio, the 12th century San Giovanni Battista church, and the San Filippo Neri church. The squared stone bell tower and the cross-vault roof are particularly striking.
Pontone is the departure point for walks along paths leading to the Torre Dello Ziro and to the Valle Delle Ferriere, which lead all the way to Amalfi (see Walks section).

PRAIANO

This small fishing village is situated on the ridge where mount Sant’Angelo a Tre Pizzi leads down to Capo Sottile. It is distinguished by its churches, with their majolica tile decorations, and the scattering of houses cascading down to the sea.
The small Marina Di Praia beach is a highlight. A path cuts through the rock leading from the beach to one of the most beautiful nightclubs in the world, the Africana, in a natural grotto by the sea, a favourite spot for local nightlife.
Visit the San Luca Evangelista church, which houses a relic of the saint and 16th century paintings, and the Di San Gerardo church, an ancient church that was restored in 1602 and decorated with multi-coloured tiles, with its bell tower and majolica tiled dome.

RAVELLO

At 350 m above sea level, where the sea meets the chestnut woods of Scala and Tramonti, this was a favoured destination for the nobles and wealthy merchants of Amalfi seeking repose, along with heads of state, churchmen, intellectuals, artists, poets, writers, and painters seeking inspiration. Ravello was the inspiration for Klingsor’s magic garden from Wagner’s Parsifal.
The meeting of an English lord and a Ravello tailor led to the creation of one of the marvels of the entire coast, the cliff-top Villa Cimbrone, with its terrace that drops away to the sea. Ravello’s piazza is overlooked by the San Pantaleone cathedral, home to the relics of the saint and artistic treasures such as the bronze doors by Barisano Da Trani, the first to be cast in Italy by an Italian artist.
Villa Rufolo was built in 1280 by the Ravello family of the same name. The Rufolo family were bankers for King Charles of Anjou. The villa hosts summer concerts as part of the Ravello Festival.

SCALA

Along with Pontone (Scala Minor), this was the first inhabited settlement along the coast (Scala Maior). Romans who had been shipwrecked nearby discovered a land that seemed comparable to Eden for its pure air, excellent food and warm hospitality.
Spread over a hill, on one side characteristic terraces drop down towards the sea, while on the other the hill climbs up to the peak of Santa Maria Dei Monti (1,050 metres above sea level).
Visit the San Lorenzo cathedral (12th century), and the Santissima Annunziata church in the nearby village of Minuta, one of the most beautiful examples of Romanesque architecture along the coast. Other sights include the San Cataldo Benedictine convent, the Suore Redentoriste church and proto-monastery, and the castrum minore Ziro Tower in the Pontone district.

VIETRI SUL MARE

The 16th century dome of the San Giovanni Battista church rises above the town. The dome is decorated with hundreds of fish-shaped majolica scandole tiles in three colours, yellow, green, and azure.
Vietri is the capital of ceramics, with dozens of workshops and studios, including the impressive Ceramica Solimene, designed by the architect Paolo Soleri and inspired by New York’s Guggenheim Museum. This is one of southern Italy’s oldest and most prestigious ceramics workshops. The facade is entirely covered in cylindrical tubular terracotta in brick-red and green.
The craft of ceramics dates back to ancient times, and has been perfected over the centuries to today’s manufacturing of objects that are works of art, appreciated as such all over the world. .
The ceramics museum exhibits work by the most famous ceramists, including Dolker, Kowalisk, and Hannasch.
Lookout towers survey the beaches and the coast, and they are joined in their task by the “two brothers”, two large rock formations, similar to Capri’s famous Faraglioni stacks.
Visit the Santa Margherita Di Antiochia church in the nearby village of Albori to admire its splendid frescoes. The floor of the Madonna Dell’Arco church in the village of Raito is paved with precious Majolica tiles.

The Path of the Gods

From Agerola to Nocelle, the path takes its auspicious name from the breath-taking views it affords of the Amalfi Coast as seen from above. Near Positano visitors can even catch a glimpse of Capri’s famous Faraglioni stacks. At about 500 metres above sea level the rocky path winds through Mediterranean scrub and forest, and along terraced fields carved out of the steep slopes.

The Emerald Grotto

This grotto was discovered by a fisherman in 1932, and is one of the most intriguing places on the Coast.

Un giro nei dintorni

The Amalfi Coast, part of the Campanian Coast, is situated south of the Sorrentine Peninsula and overlooks the Gulf of Salerno. It is bordered on the west by Positano and on the east by Vietri sul Mare. It is world famous for its beautiful nature and major touristic sites. It takes the name of Amalfi, the historical and geographical centre of the Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast is famous for its heterogeneity. That is, each region’s coast has its own character and traditions.
The main municipalities along the 50 kilometer coast are: Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori. Minori, Tramonti, Ravello, Scala, Atrani, Amalfi, Agerola, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Praiano, and Positano. The Amalfi Coast is a world cultural heritage belonging to UNESCO. The splendor of the Amalfi coast dates back to Ancient Rome, when the Roman patricians were used to build their summer residences here. Thus, many villas are scattered throughout the coast. A second period of historic importance took place during the Republic of Amalfi and the Republic of Marinara, together with Pisa, Genova and Venezia. The history tied to the Republic of Amalfi, still, is relived every year with its famous regattas, a folk event known around the world.
The divine coast is one of the most coveted areas in the world. Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello are places with superb natural beauty, rich in charm and enchantment, as well as treasure chests filled with history. It is the destination for tourists, artists, and people who love the sea, sun and peace. Many young people also come to the coast in search of entertainment and nightlife.

The island of Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples between the Sorrentine Peninsula and the islands of Ischia and Procida.
Back in 29 BC the Roman Emperor Tiberius and, later, Octavius were struck by the beauty of this island. Their presence greatly influenced the architecture and development of Capri. Because of the Roman capability, the harbor, water system, farms, houses, cottages, and twelve imperial villas were built. Many still stand the test of time. After the Roman empire, and throughout its long history, Capri had been invaded and pillaged by the Saracens (Middle Ages) and the Ottomans (16th century). It was passed into the hands of the Bourbons in the nineteenth century. By this time, the island had great cultural connotations, especially after the marriage of Ferdinand IV to Maria Carolina of Austria, a cultured and refined woman.
So Capri, in the nineteenth century, came to be known throughout the world and became a place of ‘’otium” (peace) and hospitality. Back then, tourism was made up of noble, royal, and personalities from politics and industry. Today, Capri is a desired and dreamed of place, visited by tourists from all over the world. Here, you can meet artists in the streets, who paint, write, and use the energy of the island to reserve it in their works.
This is the exclusive meeting point of VIPs. It is the quintessential romantic island and the ideal center for artists from around the world. It is also the world capital of Coffee Society. Capri is everyone’s dream!!!

Sorrento is a municipality of the province of Naples and has 17.000 inhabitants. It is situated on the southern part of the gulf of Naples and is 35 km away from Pompeii. It’s the most important town of the peninsula and it separates the gulf of Naples form the gulf of Salerno. The town is characterized by orange and lemon gardens and is surrounded by gorges from the west to east and in the north it slopes to the sea. The historical centre of the town has the original Roman streets and the mount is surrounded by the 15th century walls.
It is very easy to find accommodation in Sorrento because of a well developed touristic structure and good connections (bus and taxi) with neighbouring zones that offer hospitality in hotels, villas, residences and private houses. Sorrento has a good connection with Naples and with the Capodichino airport and is easily accessible by Circumvesuviana (local train line) and Metrò del Mare (ferries).
The local economy is based on tourism, local culture and beaches, agriculture (citrus fruits, vine, walnuts, olive trees), food industry (the most famous products of Sorrento are limoncello, babà al limoncello, gnocchi alla sorrentina, ravioli all’aragosta) and characteristic wooden articles made by craftmen.

Charming, romantic, delicious are the three adjectives that describe a beautiful part of land called the Sorrentine Peninsula. There are many towns here like Sorrento, Piano di Sorrento, Meta, S. Agnello, Vico Equense and Massa Lubrense, Sant’Agata sui due Golfi e Nerano. Sorrento is certainly the most representative town that lies on the volcanic rock terrace, dominated by the mountain peak (500 meters high) that slopes to the sea in the middle of luxuriant plants.
The Sorrentine peninsula is a historical place and has many legends; the most famous is ‘’the myth of the sirens”, whence Sorrento’s name- Sirenide.
It is said that the sirens used to live here – legendary creatures, half women half fish, just like in the tradition of Homer. The mermaids used to make the sailors sick with their persuasive songs and make their boats crush on the rocks.
The Greeks, Etruscans, Romans, Normans and Spanish used to come here because of the beauty, location, richness of this place.
Nowadays, the economy of this land is mostly based on tourism, thanks to its nature and location. The agriculture is also important and is based on production of citrus trees, walnuts, olive oil and the transformation of typical products and the creation of some sweeties and liquors like ‘’delizia al limone” and the famous ‘’limoncello”. Also handicraft has a long story – with characteristic ‘’intarsio art” and laces. The peninsula offers tours allowing to get familiar with ancient tastes, historical vines, products, manufacturers and characeristics of the land. The place is famous for Limoncello di Sorrento ( liquor made of lemon peels, alcohol, sugar and water), Olio DOP Penisola Sorrentina, Pasta di Gragnano, Dairy di Agerola and various temples of taste and touring around wineries and olive mills. Easter Week processions are also famous. The one of Good Friday, in Sorrento, is among the most beautiful in the world. The processions have their roots in the Middle Ages, they continued during the Spanish rule and are still organized nowadays. One of the them is the procession of the Confraternity of Sorrento which has greatly influenced the history of the city and the peninsula.

Altre Cose da Evidenziare

What had been a sleepy fishing village is now a swanky destination popular with the jet set and common travelers alike. Positano is an almost impossible town, clutching the cliffs of Monti Lattari, a pastel-dabbled landscape that scrambles up the hillside from the Mediterranean Sea. It sits above the glittering gulf with views that sweep over the sea to the islands and coastal towns; it is itself a sight to see on its steep perch. Here, the “streets” take the form of passageways among the houses and steep sets of stairs that interlink the alleys. Only one road traverses the town – Viale Pasitea, where shops, cafes, hotels and villas huddle together to take advantage of the vehicular access and “wider” space. Other shops, eateries and coffee bars are tucked away in the lanes that you access by foot.
Positano was originally a Roman settlement where wealthy patricians had seaside villas. Ruins from that epoch are found near the Church of Assunta. It was later the site of a Benedictine abbey dating back to the 9th century, then grew when the people of Paestum fled coastal raids that destroyed their homes and took refuge here on the safer, steeper cliffs. Positano was pillaged by Pisa, sacked by the Saracens and raided by pirates, all lending to a decline. Emigration at the turn of the 20th century left it in a sleepy state, until the construction of the coastal road raised its fortunes and its status, and Positano prospered as a playground of the rich and famous. Literary and artistic types flocked here, and the masses quickly followed, drawn by the scenery, the unusual setting, the charming aspect of the town itself and the nearly constant sunshine.
It is a seductive place. Terraces shore up the buildings and almost every turn offers a visual bounty to enjoy. The most prevalent point of references is the colorful tiled dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, in the smack-middle of town. Everything else tumbles down toward the water from here. The beach at the marina is known as Spiaggia Grande (big beach) because it is one of the Amalfi Coast’s largest. This is the central seafront for the town and there are several excellent seafood restaurants just above the beach. A pathway leads over to the Fornillo Beach, a more peaceful place to lay out your beach blanket and enjoy the surf and sun. You can also take a water taxi to one of the many coves and sandy spots that dot the cliffs that are reachable only by boat. Ferries depart the marina to link Positano with other towns along the Amalfi Coast and the islands.
When you tire of the water, you can head to the hills to hamlets like Nocelle and Montepertuso. A bridge near Punta Germano spans a deep crevice and is called Ponte dei Libri (Bridge of Books) because of the unusual strata layers that look like tomes lined up. There are good challenging hikes in these hills for outdoors enthusiasts.
Cuisine is, naturally, centered on seafood but fresh produce plays an important part. Everything is fresh and light, with local white wine to compliment the meals. Lemons are abundant and used in everything from roasted potatoes to gelato to the potent after-dinner liqueur known as “Limoncello”. Hand-made pastas and excellent pastries are also produced here and should be sampled.
Positano is an enticing town that enjoys perennial popularity because of its stunning location, stellar views and star power.

  1. This is probably one of the best locations we have ever been in! Michele’s apartment is amazing, and the photos don’t do it justice. The view from the balcony is breathtaking, we spent a day just in the apartment because it was so nice. Entrance to the apartment is from the road, something very rare in positano! Don’t think twice, book this apartment if it’s available!
