Luxo Italia masters the art of creating unforgettable moments
The end of the summer season is winding down…but that doesn’t mean the beauty of the Amalfi Coast is diminishing.
The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of 37 km of coastline on the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in the Province of Salerno in Southern Italy. It borders on the Tyrrhenian Sea extending itself into the gulf of Salerno. An area where physical beauty and natural diversity are intertwined to create a breathtaking view. Taking an Amalfi Coast tour will definitely leave you with unforgettable memories!
This is the reason why the Amalfi Coast is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a unique and cultural landscape. It fascinates with its mysterious caves, rugged cliffs and extraordinary bays. Not to mention the surrounding atmosphere, enriched by cultivated terraces of citrus trees, vines and olive tree groves with their consequent fragrance.
Typical of the coast is the cultivation of lemons along the entire coast for the production of limoncello liqueur, the second most popular liqueur in Italy, which is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestive.
Amalfi is also known for its special kind of anchovies from Cetara that can be savoured either pickled, marinated or spicy. Other local products of this splendid area are the colourful handmade and painted ceramics from Vietri, and moreover a hand-made thick paper called “bambagina”.
A spectacular way of visiting the Amalfi Coast can be through an excursion by boat that will give you a totally different perspective of its beauty and of its treasures. A top destination on the Amalfi Coast is Positano, with its colourful houses tumbling down to the sea and with its picturesque style. It is a town structured in terraces with little narrow winding roads and it shows an outstanding architecture leading to the Moresque and Byzantine style.
Facing Positano, there are three lonely and rocky isles: Gallo Lungo, Rotonda and Briganti, which can also be explored through an interesting tour by boat. Then explore Amalfi, the town that gives the name to the coast. It lies surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery at the foot of Monte Cerreto and it offers many pleasant strolls with enchanting views.
Amazing to visit is the “Grotta dello Smeraldo”, a cave flooded with a brilliant blue or emerald light. A special Amalfi tour that will leave you speechless could be a kayak excursion around the island of Capri, characterized by the Blue Grotto, which is its most visited attraction, as well as the famed and spectacular White Grotto. On the contrary, to explore the inner island, the area gives you the opportunity of fabulous walking tours, experiencing Capri’s breathtaking scenery, its interesting history and its infinite colours and perfumes.
