South of the Sorrento peninsula, overlooking the Gulf of Salerno, the Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coast famous throughout the world for its great beauty, so much so that it is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name derives from the city of Amalfi, central nucleus not only geographically, but also from a historical point of view. The Costiera is a land where mountains and sea merge perfectly. The mountain, which man’s intense work has been able to adapt over time to the needs of life, plunges vertiginously into a crystal clear sea, creating suggestive inlets, deep fjords, headlands, caves, coves, natural arches and small pebbly beaches, creating an enchanting landscape with sinuous and seductive forms. Even the typical houses of the place, with their warm pastel colors, following the natural slope of the last offshoots of the Lattari Mountains create an extremely picturesque landscape. From the characteristic terraces, made with dry walls, emanate the intense scents of lemon groves, vineyards and brooms, and the bright colors of the buganvillea stand out, which, combined with the smell of saltiness, create a vortex of unique sensory experiences.
Thirteen are the “pearls” of this coast, located along a stretch of road among the most panoramic in the world, able to give strong emotions, pleasant memories and the ardent desire to return as soon as possible.
