PATH OF GODS TREKKING
The museum of the Arsenali: the regatta is held on the first Sunday in June and it is an event of an eminently historical and cultural nature since December 1954 to recall the fortunate vicissitudes of the Four Maritime Republics of Italy, Amalfi, Venice and Genoa.
The paper Museum in Amalfi, housed in an ex- paper mill, was inaugurated in 1969 by Nicola Milano, who belonged to one of the historic families that produced the Amalfi paper. This museum collects restored and perfectly working tools and machineries, photos and prints, but also houses a library preserving books about the handmade paper production.The Ferriere Valley, as unknown as marvellous, is set in the heart of Amalfi and offers you a stirring unimaginable landscape. It astonishes you with its variety of colours, lights and flora, alternating a tropical vegetation to that of the Mediterranean bush. Let the joyful springs enchant you with their waterfalls and, walking along the Rio Canneto, don’t miss the ruins of some paper mills that bring you back to the time of the handmade paper production.
Villa Cimbrone, famous for its gardens “Terrace of the Infinite”.The town founded in the 5th century has served historically as a destination for artists, musicians, and writers and every year in the summer months, the “Ravello music Festival” takes place.
Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer:
The curve that represents the meeting of the mountains of my homeland, the figure of a beautiful woman, the clouds of the sky and the waves of the sea. The same curves which create the Universe(Oscar Niemeyer).
The auditorium of Ravello is set in a natural slope of the Amalfi Coast and, from a height of 365 meters above sea level, it enjoys a unique view of the Divine coastline.
The architecture of Ravello has Roman and Medieval roots and is strongly characterized by architectural elements typical of such periods, such as arched windows, columns, arches, etc.. So the first obstacle to overcome was just to design a structure that was not in conflict with the architectural identity of Ravello and the Amalfi Coast. Its auditorium, in fact, represents a cornerstone in aesthetic and cultural modernization of the countryside, proposing salient and characterizing points (the curved line and the predominant white color).
POMPEI and HERCULANEUM
Stayed here with my mom and we both loved it. A family run business and it feels like it! The staff, especially Jiuliana, were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable and we had a beautiful patio overlooking the sea. Breakfast was brought to our room every morning. The location was great, only a short walk to anywhere in Positano. There was also a fantastic restaurant just next door to the hotel that had great food, a charming vibe and also very nice staff. Our whole experience here was great and I would not think twice about recommending it to others.
Our travel day to Positano was a nightmare. We got on the wrong train, missed the Ferry, and had to take the bus from Salerno to Positano (freakin nightmare! Seriously, Italian buses cram people in like a can of sardines and your driving on windy mountains)by the time we got to Hotel Villa Delle Palme we felt like we finally arrived in heaven! The owners are the sweetest, and do a phenomenal job of taking care of their guests. I would stay there in a heartbeat, and plan on going back one day with the husband. The hotel and Positano were the highlight of my European trip!! PS we'll be taking a taxi from Naples to Positano next time.
With so many hotels in Positano, this one really stands out. A family run business where you really do feel at home and feel like family. Giuliana, the owner, and her lovely niece Manuela were so kind and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The rooms are very nice with a great view and don't miss their excellent breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...
