Local Attractions

The Amalfi Coast lies on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula. It is one of the most culturally rich seaside destinations in Italy's Campania region and its breathtaking panoramic vistas are considered among the most beautiful stretches of coast in the world.

Saint Andrews Cathedral or Duomo di Amalfi
The town’s most celebrated asset is Saint Andrews Cathedral dating back to the 11th century, with its impressive late Baroque architecture and gold caisson ceiling with four large paintings depicting the life and crucifixion of Saint Andrew the apostle.

Cloister of Paradise or Chiostro del Paradiso
The Chiostro del Paradiso or Cloister of Paradise was built in the 13th century as a burial ground for the town's most illustrious citizens. Reflecting the early influence that the Arab world had on Amalfi, this remarkable open-air museum features entwined pointed arches resting on 120 white marble columns.

Museum of Handmade Paper or Museo della Carta
The Museum of Handmade Paper, situated in the Valle dei Mullini in an old 13th-century paper mill, celebrates the art of handmade thick paper, which is called bambagina. Amalfi was one of the first centers of paper making in Europe, the skill having been acquired by the Amalfitans from the Arabs. The museum is housed in an old paper mill once owned by the Milano family.

Ravello, Positano, and Sorrento
On the hills above Amalfi lies the delightful town of Ravello, where the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape harmonizes with the charm of the architectural monuments, the 11th-century Cathedral, the enchanting “Villa Cimbrone” and “Villa Rufolo,” which inspired frequent visitor and brilliant composer Richard Wagner. Summer musical concerts continue to be organized in his honor.

Just a short distance away, Positano and Sorrento are the historic retreats of the ancient Greek and the Roman nobility. Noted for their lovely Moorish architecture, these enchanting towns boast delightful streets filled with quaint, colorful shops, numerous sun-drenched beaches, and ancient Greek and Romans buildings of historical interest such as the Basilica di S. Antonino, the cloister of Saint Francesca, and the SEDIL DOMINOVA, the only testament in Campania to the ancient noble seats.

Capri
An island rich in natural and architectural beauty, Capri has been the home for Roman Emperors, Italian Dukes, and celebrity jet setters, attracted by the luxurious landscape. The Island’s many attractions include the Blue Grotto, a long sea-cave that is bathed in an ethereal blue light, the impressive remains of Emperor Tiberius’ Palace, the Medieval Monastery of Certosa di San Giacomo, and the Gardens of Augustus.

Pompei and Herculaneum (Ercolano)
Now world renowned archaeological sites, Pompei and Herculaneum (Ercolano) were buried following the eruption from Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The excavations began in the 18th century and gradually led to the discovery of fabulous villas with their beautiful frescoes still intact, an amphitheater, communal baths, and many other ancient buildings, which are a testament to the prosperity of these once thriving communities.

Paestum
Founded by the Greeks from Sybaris, around the 6th century B.C., Paestum with its imposing Greek temples was colonized by the Romans, and is one of the Italy's most famous archaeological sites. The magnificently preserved golden temples dedicated to Neptune, Basilica, and Cerere are remarkable cultural treasures.

Naples
The city of Naples has a rich and varied history. Its many monuments reveal the storied splendor of its past. The National Museum has an important collection of artifacts taken from Pompei and Herculaneum (Ercolano), as well as invaluable collections of porcelain, ceramics, bronze, and mosaics. The Royal Palace, the piazza Plebiscito, the Maschio Angioino (castle), the San Carlo theatre, the church of Santa Chiara, and the many other churches are part of the fascinating historic legacy of Naples.
