Amalfi & Positano

Near Sorrento and the Sorrento Peninsula begins the Amalfi Coast, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1997 and is one of the most-visited destinations in the world. Here, overlooking the sea, there are a series of spectacular villages: Positano, Amalfi, Praiano, Maiori and Minori are just some of the beauties which you can admire during your journey along the coast.

Positano will perhaps be the first to charm you with the majolica dome of the church of Santa Maria Assunta. This village slides down to the sea among linen garments, handmade sandals, colourful shops, stone stairs and the smell of wisteria, until you reach the beach with the marina, the promenade and the restaurants on the seafront.

Whether by bus or by car, you can head on to Amalfi, where a magnificent cathedral awaits you, overlooking the square with its bars and souvenirs and the scent of lemons. Amalfi was the Maritime Republic and it’s here that the compass was invented; here you can only lose yourself in wonder.

During your trip, stop at the fjord of Furore, the only fjord in Italy, from whose 30 metre-high bridge a world diving competition is held every year.
