COSTIERA AMALFITANA


AMALFI COAST The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline in the province of Salerno that goes from Positano to Vietri sul Mare. Obviously, it takes it name from the town of Amalfi, crucial for its historic and touristic relevance. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The majestic peninsula is not only a must-see destination, it is also very popular for typical food and wine.
The typical enogastronomic products: the Limoncello lemon liqueur, the Peninsula Sorrentina PDO extra virgin olive oil, the durum wheat handmade pasta and different specialties of milk products. The local gourmet paradise is Vico Equense, where people can taste the famous pork sausage with orange peel, the formaggi burrini (caciotta filled with butter), the caprignetti (small goat cheese balls covered with herbs and preserved in oil) and the valuable Provolone del Monaco DOP, a pear shaped hard cheese made of spun past feature. The whole area is famous for the tasty dairy produce. It comes as no surprise that the mountains are dotted with goat and sheep farms, which – for this very reason – are called Monti Lattari (Milk Mountains). Among the glittering string of coastal gems, Positano and Amalfi sparkle the brightest; but visitors cannot help but love also Agerola, Vico Equense with its famous pizza al metro (pizza by the metre), the Comunità Montana Amalfitana (which includes Corbara, S. Egidio and Monte Albino), Tramonti, Vietri sul Mare (known as a center of the ceramics industry), Scala (the most ancient town of the coast), Positano, Praiano (with the stunning churches of San Gennaro and San Luca), Minori (where you must not miss the Roman Villa and the Cathedral of S. Trofimena), Ravello, Antrani (with the churches of San Salvatore and Santa Maria Maddalena), Conca dei Marini (famous for the sfogliatella, puff filled with ricotta and candied fruit, it is home to the Grotta Smeralda and the churches of San Pancrazio, San Giovanni Battista and Patronale) and Maiori (with the castle of San Nicola de Thoro Plano and the collegiate church of Santa Maria a mare).
