Ours is a comfortable and well-finished facility, near to the center of Vietri Sul Mare – world-renowned for its artistic pottery – that offers scenic, breath-taking views of Amalfi Coast’s ‘first pearl’. It offers two double rooms, as well as an apartment for up to four persons. All are in the same building, but the latter has a dedicated entrance, next to that leading to the two rooms. The apartment can be accessed through a one-flight staircase leading to the dedicated entrance. The rooms can be accessed via another staircase, this one equipped with an escalator specially designed for use by person with motor disabilities. The rooms have recently been renovated and are simply but delightfully furnished, with air-conditioning and highest-quality building furniture. Breakfast is included and served in a dedicated room. Services offered include bedlinens (changed every three days, or each time a new guest comes in), daily cleaning of each room and Internet access (free of charge but password-protected), plus a parking lot for one car reserved for our guests. We are within walking distance from the sea (10 minutes) and the world-famous pottery stores situated in the centre of Vietri sul Mare (3 minutes). The nearest dry-cleaner is also within short walking distance (150 m). Nearby facilities and attractions include a bus stop at 50 metres, used by bus lines going to and from Salerno, Naples, Pompeii and Amalfi, and a railway station at 200 metres, connecting Vietri Sul Mare to Naples, Pompeii and Salerno. Direct buses from Vietri go to all the major destinations of Amalfi Coast including Erchie, Cetara, Maiori, Minori and Amalfi. From Salerno – only two kilometres away and reached by three different bus lines – ferry shiplines depart to the same destinations as well as to Capri, Sorrento, Ischia and Procida. Railway and bus lines departing from Salerno also reach the Cilento coast, birthplace of the worldwide known “Mediterranean diet”, including Paestum and its world-famous archaeological area.
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Amalfi Coast is like a balcony suspended between a cobalt-blue sea and the slopes of the Lattari mountains, among valleys and promontories, beaches, coves and terraced edible landscapes in which citrus groves alternated with olive and vine trees.
The ancient Roman town of Pompeii is one of the world’s best-known and most-visited archeological sites. Its was buried by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD, that tragically ended thousands of lives. Yet this ‘froze’ in time the entire area, providing subsequent generations with a fascinating glimpse into the everyday life of the Antiquity.
One of the most important historical complexes of Magna Grecia (Greater Greece), includes an important Archeological Museum preserving countless artifacts. Of special interests are the three Doric temples, so well-preserved and seen as unique examples of the architecture of Magna Grecia (Greater Greece).
Cilento, a hilly part of Campania, is covered by olive trees reflected in the blue Mediterranean sea. Since longtime a crucible of different peoples and traditions, it is criss-crossed by small rivers and endowed with forests of chestnut and oak trees. Its breath-taking landscapes are punctuated by small villages, clinging to the mountains or laid down on the seaside.
It is impossible to get bored in the alleyways of Salerno’s historical center: via Roma and the adjacents streets are chock-full of restaurants, pubs and clubs. There, thousands of people crowd together well past midnight, partying their nights away.
Much more than Christmas lights, Luci d’artista is the seasonal event that from early November to late January lights the town of Salerno bringing visitors into a magical landscape. Luci d’artista are installations placed all over the city in the streets, the squares and on the seaside promenade of Salerno.
