Enjoy the saltiness of the marvelous beaches and the wildest Mediterranean scrub, arranged in a vertical manner, together with the houses overlooking the sea and hidden in the maze of picturesque alleys. It is like a cluster of white houses, clinging to the rocks and connected by covered alleys and stairways. At the center of the main square is the Cathedral of Sant'Andrea with the spectacular staircase and the bell tower in Arab-Norman style. Your journey will continue visiting the splendid Positano, one of the most famous places on the Amalfi Coast, for its suggestive staircases and the whitewashed houses that follow the mountains course, creating a vertical landscape. Appreciated by artists and jet-set characters since the early post-war, the town is famous for the production of leather sandals,cotton and linen clothes and for the beautiful Majolica.
