This summer: Amalfi Coast, between mountains, the sea and the sky
The stretch of coast between Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Ravello, Minori, Maiori and Vietri reveals behind every bend a beautiful and incomparable landscapes and natural diversity.
Almost isolated up to 800, when it was accessible only by carts pulled by mules, the "divine coast" was discovered only at the beginning of 900 and has also unveiled unknown artistic and architectural masterpieces of great value.
Like Positano, with its houses painted in soft colors and connected by a dizzying web of alleys and stairways, terraces and gardens, torn between the rock; or Amalfi, with its past as a Maritime Republic and its beautiful Cathedral ; or Ravello, a little place on the mountain but it still be able to offer the peace and mystery that Wagner defined , when he was a guest at Villa Rufolo and composed Parsifal ,"the magic garden of Klingsor".
