As many of you know i spend my summer holidays in Ischia but I wanted to tell you about a place very dear to me: the Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in the province of Salerno in Campania. Located east of the Sorrento Peninsula, it faces the Gulf of Salerno and stretches from Positano to Vietri sul Mare for a distance of about 20KM and a total of 20 municipalities. Whether you’re a history buff, an adventure seeker, a food lover, or simply someone in search of a serene getaway, the Amalfi Coast has something to offer everyone
The area was once a powerful maritime republic, with the town of Amalfi at its heart. In the 9th and 10th centuries, Amalfi was a major trading hub, with a strong influence on Mediterranean trade routes. Today, remnants of its glorious past can be seen in its medieval architecture, such as the stunning Amalfi Cathedral and the Arsenal of the Maritime Republic.
The Amalfi Coast is also famous for its craftsmanship and traditional arts. The town of Ravello, for example, is renowned for its exquisite ceramics, while Positano is known for its fashionable boutiques and handmade sandals. Throughout the region, you’ll find local artisans preserving age-old techniques, producing unique and beautiful works of art. Immerse yourself in the local culture by visiting workshops and galleries, where you can witness the italian.
