The Amalfi coast is located along the Tyrrhenian coast of southern Italy, just south of Naples. It is an area of great natural beauty, characterized by terraces for the cultivation of vineyards and orchards and by towns of great architectural and artistic value, including Amalfi and Ravello.
The area of the Unesco site includes twelve municipalities and multiple historical and artistic testimonies that represent the identity of its origins: from the Roman villas of Minori and Positano from the 1st century AD. to medieval public and private architecture, from the precious goldsmith and handicraft artefacts kept in churches and museums, to the naturalistic wonders of the Valle dei Mulini and the majolica domes of Vietri, sign of a world famous ceramic craftsmanship.
Everywhere the lemon gardens, which throughout the year dot the dark green of the foliage on the sides of the mountain with yellow that plunges towards the sea and merges with the colors of the water, which along this coast constantly change between blue, l indigo, the emerald.
The Amalfi Coast is a wonderful example of a Mediterranean landscape with extraordinary natural and cultural value. A unique landscape in the world designed by bays, inlets, overhangs and small villages perched on the mountain.
