Positano (Step 1)

Walking around the pathways, or up the stairs of Positano is a very pleasant experience, amazing views await you around

Amalfi (step 2)

There has been a church on this site in Amalfi since 596 AD and the one built in the 9th century still stands today. The present cathedral (added alongside the old one) was built in the early 13th century to provide a suitable resting place for the relics of St. Andrew the Apostle. Uniquely, the older cathedral was not torn down but left adjacent to the new one. The two were originally joined together to form a single, six-nave Romanesque cathedral.

Ravello (step 3)

was founded in the 6th century A.d. by Roman colonies who arrived on the shores of the coast searching for high ground from where the could defend themselves against the aggression of their attackers, the invading Unni, Goti, Visigoti and Longobardi people. These new inhabitants of Ravello recognised the fundamental need to trade and so sailed ships containing their merchandise (mainly cloth) to the Orient. This proved to be very successful economically for the people of the area, You can see Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, Next to the tunnel which takes us away from the main square, we can see the main tower of the Villa Rufolo, the most important monument of art and antiquity in Ravello.
