The Amalfi coast is unique in the world for its natural beauty, breathtaking views, colors and characteristics. Small fishing villages are scattered in clusters, upon the front face of the mountain. Villas, churches and corner shops are built cut out of the rock, one on top of each other, climbing up the mountain from the water's edge. The buildings are surrounded by beautifully kept gardens and terraces, narrow pebbled streets and endless steps, lemon trees, grape and olive vines and the perfume of nature. It is a presence rich in history and culture, which is still alive today, among so many artistic memories of the past.
