Highlights

  • Positano is the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colours.
  • Stretching about 50km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, most famous for the town of Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana) is one of Europe’s most breathtaking.
  • Sitting high in the hills above Amalfi, Ravello is a refined, polished town almost entirely dedicated to tourism (and increasingly popular as a wedding venue). Boasting impeccable bohemian credentials – Wagner, DH Lawrence and Virginia Woolf all spent time here – it’s today known for its ravishing gardens and stupendous views, the best in the world according to former resident Gore Vidal, and certainly the best on the coast.

Guide

Trip Info

Driving  directly through Positano descending the winding one-way road, bypassing many local restaurants, leads to the heart of the town – the busy central Piazza dei Mulini that is connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront. At Piazza dei Mulini, you must leave the car as all streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only. These streets also lead to the cathedral, shops selling ceramics, lemons, shoes and “Positano fashion” clothing. There is a short walk back uphill in order to return to the car to ascend the mountain, returning to the main coastal road that leads to Amalfi.
The coastal road begins after Sorrento, runs through Positano, the fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, and continues until it reaches the busy square of Amalfi which is situated on the seafront – the port and a long stretch of pebbled beach. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi that ends at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, and of course, ceramics. However, if one would like to see more than just shops, Amalfi has some interesting sights to explore: the most spectacular cathedral along the coast, the paper factory and its museum. A slow uphill drive along a very narrow road passing several wineries and olive factories etc, leads to Ravello, a rural village, perched on top of the mountain cliff situated above Amalfi and Minori. Ravello, being famous for its breath-taking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments. In high season, the gardens are rich in sweet secants of blooming flowers, shadows of flora and perfume of lemons. There are also many classical concerts held in the gardens of Villa Rufolo, located just off the main square of Ravello. Apart from the main cathedral, and a  museum  in the basement of the cathedral, there are many other churches to visit given that there used to be a total of 13 churches in the village.
