The Amalfi Coast
A small book about the Amalfi Coast, which is undoubtedly the most spectacular and beautiful coastline in Italy. Moorish-style villages cling to the dramatic jagged cliffs perched over the rippling waves below.
The air, scented with lemons and wild herbs, and of course, the sea is fresh. The villages that string along the Amalfi Coast have cobblestoned streets lined with bougainvillea-covered villas, Arabic arches, and many corners with million-dollar views.
The magic of the Costa Amalfitana is that while it is a magnet for jetsetters and home to many ultra-luxuries five-star hotels, Michelin starred restaurants, and yachts, which characterizes the region is its effortless Mediterranean simplicity.
You can base an unforgettable weekend at a romantic small hotel in Positano.
Food and wine are highlights of the Amalfi Coast and should always be a focus on your tours.
For example, fresh seafood, juicy vegetables drizzled in olive oil, aromatic local wines â this is the materia prima or raw material for which the region is rightly famous.
Local gastronomic includes creamy Mozzarella di Bufala and Limoncello made with ripe Sorrento lemons and San Marzano tomatoes (known worldwide).
Above all, traditional dishes are delicious and straightforward. They include Gnocchi Alla Sorrentina (with tomato and basil), pepata di cozze (spicy mussels), and the delightful Spaghetti alle vongole con Pomodoro (spaghetti with clams and tomatoes).
Vineyards are through the sunbaked coast and inland in the Sorrento Peninsula and greater Campania. Besides, grapes came to Campania by the Ancient Greeks. Some cult producers make fabulous wines. These include noble grapes as the white Falanghina grape and the black Aglianico (“Hellenica”).
