Description

The Amalfi Coast has got to be one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world where man made beauty meets that of nature in a unique and inspiring display of breathtaking views and that is where Ravello, Amalfi and Positano are.

Ravello seats in the "lattari" mountains overlooking the sea at a hight of about 350 mt. Inspiration to poets and musicians, Ravello has a fairytail atmosphere, suggestive ruins of a medieval castle and the 1400's most impressive renaissance "Villa Rufolo" surrounded by magnificent gardens. Ravello will capture your imagination and give you relaxing and most pleasant moments. The narrow and windy road through the mountains that leads down to the town of Amalfi itself is an incredible drive that shows the onlookers how the locals have always been extremely determined and cleverly exploited every single inch of their rocky, mountainous land farming lemon groves and wineyards in such unlikeky spots, right inside mountain gullets and over steep slopes. Amalfi, once a powerful and rich "seafaring republic", controlled, in competition with the rival cities of genoa, Pisa and Venice, the profitable mediterranean trade routes. Amalfi left a glorious legacy that makes it the most important town on the coast and rightfully gives it its own name. A white washed town built right on the rocky slopes of the mountain side facing the sea, as if to challenge the wrath of the waves. The magnificent cathedral reveals its past whealth and the main square and the high street have a cheerful and typical mediterranean flavour. The drive to Positano snakes along the coast following the rocky contours of this magical shoreline and offering, at every turn, amazing views that leave the travelers in awe with their eyes stuck to the windows. Positano, just like a jewel, is collected in a lush valley amid mighty mountains. It is so pictoresque as to seem a spontaneous stage setting. Its houses and buildings with their domed roofs and arches are all painted in pastel colors and roll down the mountainside on terraces finally kissing the sea on a small beach of pebbles. Charming and unique Positano has a pleseant and relaxing feel. The skinny alleyways and hidden courtyards bristling with art galleries, boutiques of locally manufactured garnments and shops selling handmade sandals, ceramics or art works are a shoppers paradise.
