Steep stairs, almost hidden. Narrow streets, which are intertwined and entangled in a series of white houses, arches, domes and arcades with spectacular views of the Gulf of Salerno. Positano, is an explosion of beauty: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. Its houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it. I believe that whereas most house foundations are vertical, in Positano they are horizontal. The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green waterlaps gently on a beach of small pebbles. There is only one narrow street and it does not come down to the water. Everything else is stairs, some of them as steep as ladders. You do not walk to visit a friend, you either climb or slide.” (John Steinbeck, "Harper's Bazaar", May 1953)


A picturesque web of alleys and stairs, overlooking a sea of spectacular colors, is the landscape that enchants arriving at Amalfi, the town that gives its name to the whole coastline. Dominated by the magnificent cathedral dedicated to St. Andrew, it provides interesting evidence of its glorious past as a Maritime Republic.
Only at few kilometers, is located Furore a real contemporary open air  art gallery with characteristic murals frescoed houses, public buildings and squares.
Many paths are available to explore this land and to discover its heart, with the colors and intense aromas of agave, the prickly pears, myrtle and rosemary.
But Furore is best known for its fiord and unexpected views, a spectacular and evocative power of nature.
