What to see AND WHAT TO DO



The Path of Gods crosses, halfway up the hill, one of the most spectacular and wild spots of the Amalfi Coast.It is a walking track between the towns of Agerola, Praiano and Positano, at an average height of 500 meters above sea level and it offers a memorable challenge within the local environment.
The suggestion is to start from Bomerano, a district of the town of Agerola situated at 650 meters above sea level, and walk along the path to reach Nocelle, a small district above Positano at approx. 2 ½ to 3 hours walking distance. But you can also walk shorter distances from Positano-Nocelle to Praiano. Another beautiful walk through the Amalfi Coast is from Ravello-Pontone down to the Ferriere Valley in Amalfi or along the Sorrento Peninsula starting in Nerano to the Baia di Jeranto, which is a protected marine reserve.
An expert FAI certified trekking guide will eventually be with you at affordable prices to make your excursion safe and unforgettable http://it.zialucy.com
Also Le ali nel vento birds of prey show in Nocelle, mostly for families, could be such a suggestive stop over before or after your day in the nature. www.lealinelvento.com

There are several connections between Positano and Capri by ferry in summertime. The hydrofoil takes 30 minutes to Capri. The whole day excursion by boat with a small group of people is instead highly recommended for just 20 Euro more than the public transportation, as you will enjoy the tour of the suggestive caves (White, green and blue grottos) where you can snorkel, spending enough time on the island as well.
As soon as you land we suggest to take a bus or the cab to Anacapri to see the Mount Solaro chairlift and the church of Saint Michael.
Then take the bus down to the small square of Capri and walk through Via Cammarelle and then take the funicular down to the pier.


This small city is famous for its sea cliffs, the town’s steep slopes looking out over azure waters to Ischia, Capri and the Bay of Naples. The birthplace of Limoncello liqueur offers some good diving, great sea fishing, boat cruises and excellent restaurants. Spectacular hiking trails lead from Termini or Nerano to the Ieranto Bay marine reserve by Punta Campanella, which marks the limit between the Gulf of Naples and the Salerno one.
Sorrentine unique wood inlay has a glorious history, due to
the mastery and inventive of the local artisans but their profound knowledge of the material.
Sorrento also offers folklore, with its traditions, its neapolitan songs and the Tarantella dance. We highly suggest to see:
the Vescovado Cathedral, Sant’Antonino Basilica,Vico San Cesareo leading to the Chiostro di San Francesco and the Villa comunale with its stunning view over the Vesuvius.


At the top of a staircase, Saint Andrew’s Cathedral (Duomo) overlooks the Piazza Duomo, the heart of Amalfi. The cathedral dates back to the 11th century; its interior is adorned in the late Baroque. Cannot miss the feast days of Saint Andrew 25/27 June, and 30 November, celebrating the city’s patron saint.

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 Rufolo (1270), built by Nicola Rufolo, one of the richest Patricians of Ravello, on a ledge and it has become a famous attraction for thousands of visitors. The villa was mentioned by Giovanni Boccaccio in his Decameron and it is the place where Richard Wagner in 1880 was inspired for the stage design of his opera Parsifal.

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).


Pompeii is famous all over the world because of the great tragedy of 79 a.C., when the rich Roman town was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius, together with Stabiae, Oplontis and Ercolano. It was a terrible tragedy that however has allowed the preservation of the town for so many centuries. Now visitors can see how Roman towns lived, admiring some excellent frescoes and mosaics on both walls and floors.
Surrounded by volcanic rock, Herculaneum location gives you a far clearer idea of the cronology of building before and after the eruption, as the entrance is where the sea was in the past.
While roofs in Pompei collapsed under the weight of falling ash, only a few centimetres of ash fell on Herculaneum, causing little damage.
The MAV (Museo Archeologico Virtuale), 200m up the hill from the entrance to the excavations on the left, (info@museomav.it), open from 09.00 to17.30 Tues-Sun, is an enjoyable interactive museum that recreates life as it was in Herculaneum and Pompei before the eruption.
It may be advantageous to buy a Campania Art Card, which gives access to many museums and other sites for €30 http://www.artecard.it


We reccommend to see the Plebiscito square and Trieste e Trento square by the theatre San Carlo and the Gallery Umberto I. Through Via Toledo to Piazza del Gesù Nuovo where the obelisk is enter the Chiostro of Santa Chiara. Then take a walk to the Chapel of San Severo through Via San Domenico Maggiore.
From Via dei Tribunali it easy to reach San Gregorio Armeno where plenty of stores sell the famous hand-made nativities. Opposite the Church of San Gregorio Armeno with its wonderful stair, is San Lorenzo Maggiore Basilica from where you can take a glipse of the underground Naples.
If you have a car the Certosa of San Martino and Posillipo are worth a visit and make sure you eat the original neapolitan pizza.

  • 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.

    “Excellent!” Angelisa T
  • 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...
