The Fiord of Furore (before Conca dei Marini) is a very beautiful attraction. Created by the Schiato torrent which flows here from Agerola. It hosts a small fishing village.

The Emerald Cave: in Conca dei Marini, between Positano and Amalfi (entrance fee € 5,00 per person and a tip for the skipper). Refracted sunlight entering the cavern through the opening gives the water its characteristic emerald glow during daylight hours. It was discovered by a fisherman in 1932 and hosts an underwater native scene.

Positano: Bar Le Sirenuse, Chez Black restaurant and Rada restaurant. Thanks to the innate sense of hospitality the inhabitants of this wonderful town were able to gain and maintain one of the firs places among the most famous tourist destinations of the world. Positano is an international benchmark in the field of fashion-sea: countless and colorful shops and boutiques fill the bleachers and the alleys, satisfying the needs of a cosmopolitan clientele.

Amalfi: famous for its products made from lemons and St. Andrew Cathedral (the heart of the town) located in the city center, in Piazza Duomo. It is composed of two churches: the first one, that now hosts the Diocesan Museum of Amalfi was built on the 9th century on the ruins of a previous temple, and the second one was built in 10th century, and this is now the Cathedral. It is dedicated to the Apostle Saint Andrew whose relics are kept here.

Maiori is overlooked by a Norman Tower called “Torre Normanna” (which is also a restaurant). This is the oldest tower on the Amalfi Coast built to spot raiders.
