Stop At: Positano, Positano, Amalfi Coast, Province of Salerno, Campania

Positano is a true paradise, developed vertically within a tangled overlay of streets, alleys and shops that expose the colorful Positano fashions well-known all around the world. In the town center is the Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta that shows up with its large dome, tiled in majolica and sheltering some precious works like polychrome marble altars. In front of Le Sirenuse Hotel are four small islands set in the expanse of the blue sea.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Amalfi, Amalfi, Amalfi Coast, Province of Salerno, Campania

Italy’s oldest maritime republic and symbol of the Amalfi Coast, Amalfi continues to enchant visitors just as it did in the days of the Grand Tour. Just over three square kilometers of devastatingly beautiful scenery at the mouth of the Valle dei Mulini: this is Amalfi, a town which opens like a fan towards the sea, sheltered from behind by the steep slopes of the Monti Lattari. Amalfi’s ancient Roman origins are evident from a number of ruins, including those of a nymphaeum dating back to the reign of Emperor Tiberius.
Amalfi is the oldest of Italy’s four major Maritime Republics and prospered for a full three centuries under the Normans, Longobards, and even the Saracens. Its decline began in 1137 when it was defeated and pillaged by the rival republic of Pisa.
