The Amalfi coast hugs the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea over a stretch of 30 miles. Many who come to visit only see half of this beautiful area. This tour takes you to discover the part of the Amalfi Coast which, though maybe “less famous,” is no less fascinating.
The first surprise is Minori, home to the splendid Villa Marittima Romana, an ancient roman villa considered to be one of the most important ancient monuments of the whole Amalfi Coast.
From Minori, the road leads straight to Maiori, with its seaside boardwalk that lines the longest beach of the Amalfi Coast.
Accompanied by brilliant colors and the intense perfume of the lemon groves, our journey takes us to Cetara, an ancient fishing village that lies in a deep, green valley flanked by vineyards and citrus groves.
Visitors come to Cetara to eat what is widely considered to be the best fish on the Amalfi Coast, including the town’s legendary Colatura di Alici, an anchovy syrup similar to the Ancient Roman “Garum”, and fresh tuna caught using the traditional nets.
Cetara’s tuna is famous throughout the world and vast quantities are exported to Japan, where it is used in sushi dishes.
Continuing along the windy Amalfi Coast road with spectacular views at every turn, we arrive in Vietri Sul Mare, the southern most village of the Coast just a short distance from Salerno.
Since Medieval times, Vietri sul Mare, the gateway to the Amalfi Coast, has been famous for its ceramics and still today the centro storico (historic centre) is packed with decorative tiled-front shops selling ceramic wares of every description, something not to miss.
