The Sorrento Peninsula
a window on the sea that divides the Gulf of Naples from the Gulf of Salerno, thus creating the two splendid coastlines, the Sorrento Coast to the north and the Amalfi Coast to the south. A necklace of pearls not to be missed: Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and many other places overlooking the splendid Tyrrhenian Sea
Here where the sea sparkles
And the wind is strong
On an old terrace
In front of the Gulf of Surriento.
The pearl of the Amalfi coast, perched directly on the mountain overlooking the sea, is a destination for numerous tourists throughout the year. Many famous people have ‘taken up residence’ there, such as Steven Spielberg, Bruce Springsteen and Greta Garbo to name but a few.
The jewel of the peninsula’s northern coast has been the location for numerous films including the famous ‘Pane Amore e …’ with Sophia Loren and Vittorio De Sica. Music with ‘Torna a Surriento’ is also at home here. And don’t miss the artistic beauty with churches and castles dating back to the 10th century.
Amalfi and Ravello
In the heart of the Amalfi coast are two splendid medieval villages directly above the sea. Amalfi was one of the four Italian maritime republics (together with Pisa, Genoa and Venice) and every four years the Palio delle Repubbliche takes place in its waters, a regatta on 8-oared galleons to recall the splendour of times past.
The variety of typical products in Campania is enormous. In this area, the best are Limoncello (the famous liqueur made from lemon juice grown in the Sorrento area), Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, Mozzarella di Agerola, Provolone del Monaco, Pasta di Gragnano and Babà. Don’t miss tasting any of these !!!
