    Norman castle on the coast
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The Norman castle in Maiori, the nearest town of Amalfi, on the coast has many towers and castles, forces of middle age, and this castle is one of good condition that we can get a permit to acssecs inside.
    To get Amalfi by car you can find a small villege like Cetarra, this villege has good beach to swim in summer, you can eat fresh tuna by chance.
    Ravello, take two buses to reach there, there has 2 villa to visit; villa Rufolo and villa Ciambone, you have to pay 6 euro in entrance of every villa, there are very interesting archtecture that all style of the middle age, so, Arabian, Bizantin, French and Normans, it's very interesting to visit if it's not very expensive to park the car, in a regal parking we pay almost 5 euro for a cople of hours, I know, this villege on strategic position in middleage, then we've got a difficolty to reach there...

    The main avenue in Salerno

    Favorite thing: This is the main avenue of the city, where most of shops are to be found. It connects the older part of the city, the historical Salerno, built on the steep hill raising from the sea shores and the modern area.

    Blue skies and beaches...

    Light and clean air!

    Favorite thing: Well, beaches are not recommended to be searched too close to Salerno, but... blue skies! Oh, they deserve your visit there! Wonderful winter mornings (12 hours earlier than this picture the snow was falling in Salerno, after nobody-remembers-how-many years), enlightening the spirit, not just the fa├žade of those beatiful palaces along the main avenue.

    The coast was a popular place,...

    by lichinga Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The coast was a popular place, and some place still remains like it was, but world tourism has deeply transformed the atmosphere. Some places still keep their original peace, then, suddenly, in Positano: great fashion, high-society (if you want it) and horrible prices.... but the visit is worth the effort. There's also a nice way of visiting the Costiera hiking, a lot of mountain paths may be used to reach Sorrento, S.Agata dei due Golfi, Positano (see the picture), Maiori, Minori, Cetara, Ravello and Amalfi starting from Gragnano, Salerno, Cava dei Tirreni or Vietri.

    Visit the Amalfitana...

    by shiran_d Updated Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the Amalfitana coast.
    Nowhere on the planet do natural jewel-toned shine as they do along the Amalfi Coast.

    This area has always enticed visitors for extended vacations and long, lazy drives up and down the aging, sunny coastline.
    Villages of varying age and style dot the coast and entice even the most lethargic tourists to stop and take a walk along the quaint, historic streets.

    It is in these villages that you find Italy's real treasures: untainted art, intensely flavorful cuisine, and unspoiled churches and monasteries.

    Fondest memory: The breath taking beauty of Amalfitana coast can not be beaten by any other place on this planet earth.

    I will recommend any one who love to sun bath and relax in total harmony visit blue sky blue coast of Amalfi.

    walk all along the Lungomare...

    by JaumeBCN Updated Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: walk all along the Lungomare on a sunday morning when everybody does it too. Also you have to visit the Duomo of Salerno (dated from the Xth century) and of course take a bus and visit the so famous and wonderful Costiera Amalfitana. Amalfi is probably one of the most famous towns there but I recommend to visit three more towns: Positano, Ravello and Vietri Sul Mare.

    Fondest memory: On the Costiera Amalfitana there is Ravello. It is situated on top of a mountain and there you can have the best views of the Costiera. You MUST visit the Villa Cimbrone there. There's a wonderful belvedere called Terrazza all'infinito. You can viewed the Golfus of Salerno and Naples, Paestum and Capri. Some people say that Greta Garbo and Leopold Stokowsky had an appointment here in 1938. It's a lovely place and if you're falled in love you have to go there with your partner and enjoy the fantastic moment. You two won't forget it.
