After a brief illustration of the itinerary and a small introductory lesson on navigation and safety at sea we will be ready to set sail westward, towards “Amalfi.”
Sailing along the coast we will have the opportunity to admire how the “Monti Lattari” plunge into the sea, creating a spectacle that is never monotonous or predictable!
We will leave from Maiori and paddling westward we will pass through Minori,a village that during the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies was considered one of the main centers of “handmade pasta” production.
We will have the opportunity to visit sea caves of all shapes and sizes, freshwater waterfalls that flow directly into the sea such as Marmorata, hidden beaches accessible only by sea.
We will see numerous private villas climbing up the rocks, as well as the “terraced” lemon cultivations that morphologically characterize our territory, testifying to the great adaptability of the coastal population.
Among the many watchtowers we will see along the Amalfi Coast stands out the tower, now called, Villa O’Scarpariello, which will introduce us to the last part of our route passing through Castiglione di Ravello, a small beach where we will stop for a short break, ideal for snorkeling because of its crystal clear waters.
Only Atrani, Italy’s smallest town and cradle of ancient traditions separates us from Amalfi first Maritime Republic once inhabited by skilled navigators, traders and shipwrights.
