When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie, That’s amore! When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine, That’s amore! – Dean Martin
The stretch of coast closed between Positano and Vietri sul Mare, on the west side of the Gulf of Salerno, is a natural amphitheater of rocks, scents and sensations, an oasis of peace flowing with a very intense social life. On the Amalfi Coast, the delights of a land that smells of sea, lemons, woods and mountains, go along with a long history, that of peoples and nations who have left the sign of their passage. Today, the Amalfi Coast is synonym with beauty and fun, scenic nature and glamour. Mass tourism has failed to undermine the simplicity of these places, which are naturally meek, and have contemporaneously become a benchmark for the international jet set. For more than one hundred years the Amalfi Coast has been an icon for the world of culture, politics, media, literature, and art, a place where one can find peace and serenity, but also an intense nightlife, wonderful shopping streets, and lovely little shops where to buy high-quality crafts.
