The Amalfi Coast conjures up images of colourful houses hanging off a cliff, such as the picturesque town of Positano, and of a jet set holiday. However, this area of Italy is also very rich in culture and history.
Amalfi was once a thriving maritime city-state and its spectacular cathedral is well worth a visit. The emblem of the town is a white cross that used to be the symbol of the Order of the Knights of Malta.
Ravello, located high above the sea, offers jaw-dropping views of blue infinity and the gardens of the villas opened to the public are a delight to the senses. Each summer, the town holds a festival that grew from music only to include other arts such as dance or photography.
Sorrento does not technically belong to the Amalfi Coast but is a good starting point to discover the region. Located on the Gulf of Naples, there are countless places from where one can admire the sceneries, perhaps while tasting a Limoncello, the most famous local beverage.
A last recommendation would be to embark on the Path of the Gods... This stunning hike will take you from Bomerano to high above Positano in about two and a half hours.
