Also known as the ”light blue ribbon” (Nastro Azzurro), the road that from Sorrento peninsula leads to Amalfi, was built in 1832 by the bourbons and it hasn’t changed much since. It runs along the Lattari Mountains coastline, passing by a number of small villages nestled in the rocks and considered amongst the prettiest in the Mediterranean. Inhabited since the VI century BC by the Greeks and previously by local indigenous people, this area mainly shares the same history of neighboring Naples. Tourism, fishing and farming are the main source of income for locals. The most popular products are: the Limoncello liqueur; the colorful ceramic art-crafts from the traditional school of Vietri and the famous Carta d’Amalfi, an exclusive type of paper made out of cloths (linen, cotton and hemp). All these items are sold by the many shops available in Amalfi.

Positano will be seen from the top, for it would take a few hours just to visit this village, located at the bottom of the hill and only accessible on foot.

The return drive will follow a different route, giving you the chance of seeing the lavish green of the mountains before reaching the highway to Napoli. In some occasion, to avoid getting stuck in traffic jam, the tour can be carried out the other way round, starting from Amalfi and back to Sorrento.
