MEETING POINT

DURATION: 8 hrs approx


Left behind Sorrento and after stopping along the way to admire the view and take pictures of the superb panorama of the Coast you’ll make your first stop, of about 2 hours, in Positano, one of most enchanting and romantic places in the world, and a famous tourist destination since Roman times. Positano has all the typical characteristics of the towns of the Amalfi Coast: the historic center being located in the higher part of the town, linked to the harbor and the beaches by an infinite series of steps and steep winding roads.
It’s main beaches ,accessible by foot, are Spiaggia Grande and Fornillo.
During the middle ages numerous watch towers were built in the area so as to guard against attack by the Saracens, frequent perpetrators of violent assaults on the coastal populations. One such tower can be found just outside the town of Positano, in Punta Campanella.

Nineteen kilometers from Positano lie Praiano, it may be less famous than its once omnipotent neighbor but Praiano is just as beautiful. Your journey continues crossing many little white houses leading from Praiano to Furore and Conca dei Marini.

Furore , dates back to 1752, is situated on extremely impervious terrain, is known for its cuisine which uses the local tomatoes, olive oil, potatoes and mountain herbs to great effect.
Just beyond Furore, you’ll pass trough Conca dei Marini, a fishing village known above all for the Smeraldo Grotto, a karst cave the waters of which are tinged with a spectacular emerald hue.
The cave offers an impressive display of stalactites and stalagmites which, in certain places join so as to form columns as many as ten meters high. The Grotta can be reached by boat or with a lift taken directly from the main road.

After few kilometers we come to the historic town of Amalfi which, in 1997, was awarded the status of World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Undisputed ruler of the seas in the 12th century, the town’s gradual decline from power has in no way diminished the beauty of its historic monuments, monuments such as the Cathedral of St. Andrew: a gothic masterpiece complete with highly decorative façade and impressive flight of steps.
The immense cathedral doors, made in bronze, were realized in Constantinople in 1065. Whilst wandering through the picturesque lanes of Amalfi, lined with tiny white cottages and shops, it is easy to catch a scent of the “sfusato” lemons which grow in abundance on this stretch of coast and are used to make the area’s highly prized limoncello liquor.

Here your driver will stop for about 2 hours where you will have the possibility to do dome shop or have a lunch in a local Restaurant with price much more affordable than in Positano.
From Amalfi you’ll take the provincial highway which leads to Ravello, town built above those of Maiori and Minori, on a high plain of the Dragon Valley.
Breathtaking views of the Gulf of Salerno can be admired from the terraces of the elegant villas such as , Villa Cimbrone, Villa Rufolo , for which the town is famous, villas once chosen as preferred residence of many a famous personage, from J. F .Kennedy to Roberto Rossellini, from Federico Fellini to Winston Churchill.
