The landscape is made of sea and mountains, with creeks
and coves often attainable only by sea, such as for example the wonderful
cave, grotta dello Smeraldo in Conca dei Marini and Furore fiord. In
some areas nature is completely uncontaminated. The area is occupied
by LattariMountains, of calcareous nature: the highest mountain is
Monte S. Angelo a Torre Pizzi (1425 m).
The Coast is characterised by the typical
cultivations on the terraced land where the most important product
is lemon and other citruses. Lemons are mostly sweet; they can also
be eaten in slices, as a dessert, with or without sugar. A legend tells
that the inhabitants of Minori convinced the Pope to give them back
the bishopric giving him as a present a basket with lemons and other
citruses. Lemons are used for cakes and to make the "limoncello",
a traditional yellow liqueur famous all over the world.
Amalfi Coast is made of
thirteen towns along the road that goes from the Gulf of Salerno to that
of Naples. Creeks, coves and cliffs on the sea: the variegated landscape
enchants all the visitors that come to these towns, Praiano, Amalfi, Ravello, Scala, Tramonti, Furore, Agerola, Minori, Maiori, Cetara, Vietri sul Mare. Each of these towns has its treasure made of lemons, villas, gardens, sea, beaches, smells.
