  • Do not go here

    An Italian member of our family was "bumped up" from a primi pasta of 9 Euro to a 34 Euro seafood dinner plate of pasta. They tried to bump me up, too. "You like this fish? You can have it." Our bill for five lunch pasta dishes alone was $70 Euro. Had I been bumped up our bill would have been 91 Euro for five pasta lunch items. Our 4 year old...

    The traditional pottery made in Vietri and in other places on the Amalfi Coast is a relics of the Arabic culture that was predominant here centuries ago.
    The Arabs were able to prepare this polychrome pottery and the people living here learnt their secrets and started to specialise in the same activity.
    Already in year 889 there are reports of pottery trades between the Amalfi Coast and Taranto. At the beginning they were mostly vases and plates.
    And for centuries the production didn't change, until when, in the 17th century they started to create religious objects like holy water stoups.
    In the 19th century started another kind of production, more linked with the daily life, and sprung out the famous Vietri?s tile, used to cover floors and terraces, polychrome and with simple ornamental patterns like flowers, the sun, the moon, stars etc.
    The colours are the basic ones, predominantly blue, yellow and green.

    The old church in the centre of Albori

    Few km away from Vietri sul Mare, up on the hills, follow the road to Raito and go further, until the road ends in a small square used as a parking lot. Leave the car and follow the stairs that will lead you to an almost unknown pearl of the Amalfi Coast: the small, medieval village of Albori.
    Narrow roads, no cars, an impressive church just in the centr and most of the roads built with the traditional old technique: most of them are sort of tunnels under the buildings, in order to shelter people from sun and wind and rain.
    Tourists are starting to know this village in the few times, and probably's better to visit it right now!
