Stops not to be missed
Amalfi Coast
Vietri sul Mare
The first pearl of the Amalfi coast is famous all over the world as the cradle of majolica. The little streets of the town are packed with artists and tiny workshops that produce real ceramic masterpieces. Between one shop and the next, you can glimpse the famous church of San Giovanni Battista: its dome is decorated with thousands of “shingles”, small majolica tiles shaped like fish in yellow, green and blue. The visual impact and the illusion that they are literally clinging to the rock will leave you astonished.
Cava de’ Tirreni
Leaving the magnificent panorama of Vietri sul Mare behind us, we arrive at Cava de’ Tirreni: elegant and tidy, with simple neat architecture, it is the ideal place to stop for coffee in the square. If it is too warm you can sit in the shade of the old white marble arcades: a perfect pause surrounded by enchanting craft shops.
Nocera Inferiore
Nocera Inferiore is included in two nature parks and the landscape that opens up before us will explain the reason why: the outlines of the Monti Lattari stand just a few kilometres from the sea. Riding past them we enter this beautiful little town. Fresh basil, San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella from Campania: these are the aromas that greet us on arrival. So why not stop for a pizza with genuine ingredients?
Castello del Parco
Palazzo Fienga
An imposing palace with a mysterious atmosphere: it is said that its rooms are haunted by the ghost of Queen Joanna of Anjou. To chase away fear, just take a walk in the beautiful park where you can admire many fine Mediterranean plants and the ruins of the old castle. This imposing mediaeval fortress stands on a hill dominating the whole valley: we advise you to climb the tower to admire a memorable sunset. So get off your Askoll and let yourself be surprised by this enchanting place.
Here is some practical advice:
Have you lost track of the time and it is too late to get back? No problem: a train leaves Nocera Inferiore for Vietri every fifteen minutes.
