DETAILS
SORRENTO, POSITANO & AMALFI from Naples or Sorrento

Sorrento
In the resort town of Sorrento you will discover a village brimming with character and overflowing with pretty streets and charming people. Here the ancient Greeks and Romans found inspiration for their art and industry, and it is here that you will find inspiration for the shopping spree of your dreams! Sorrento is known for its fine porcelain, woodworking, mosaics and furniture.

Positano
Along the Amalfi coast a picture postcard comes to life as the vast expanse of the blue sea gives way to the craggy coast, dotted with outcroppings of rock, lush vegetation and colourful villages. In Positano you’ll feel like a jetsetter, surrounded by the elegance of designer shops and seaside cafés. Be sure to sample some limoncello, a tangy liqueur made from the celebrated local lemons.

Amalfi
When you're sitting on the pebbled beach in Amalfi it's hard to imagine that in Medieval times this seaside town was one of the major maritime forces in the Mediterranean. Heck, you might not have even realized that there was a town of Amalfi!

Amalfi rose from simple fishing village to powerful naval Republic in the 9th Century thanks to its commercial trade with such far-flung places as Egypt, Syria and Constantinople.

Contact with the Arab world led to Amalfi becoming one of the first places in Western Europe to manufacture paper. The thick, elegant paper was quickly renowned throughout the Mediterranean. Today only one mill yet produces charta bambagina. Get the full paper experience by visiting the Museo della Carta (Paper Museum) as well as the ruins of the old mills along the Valle dei Mulini (Valley of the Mills).

Even if you are tired of seeing churches you will want to see the Duomo of Amalfi, dating back to the 9th Century. The church is truly splendid and incorporates a whole bunch of architectural styles encompassing Arab-Norman, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, thanks to its enlargement and embellishment over many centuries.
