Amalfi is most popular with tourists – after all, the entire coast has taken its name. In the past, this ancient town was a maritime republic, which controlled all trade throughout the Tyrrhenian coast.
Positano, on the other hand, has been a popular resort since the days of the ancient Romans.
In Scala, Tramonti and Raito there are only two ways you can go – up the stairs or down the stairs. Those towns, snuggled in the creases of steep rocks, offer no other options.
Ravello, situated 350 m above sea level, has served as inspiration for many great artists, such as Wagner, Graham Greene, Tennessee Williams…
