Positano

A holiday in Positano, enjoying the enchantment of the Amalfi Coast Positano stands to the west of the fascinating natural terrace on the Tyrrhenian Sea that is the Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, the typical Mediterranean landscape of southern Italy reigns supreme, with white houses sloping down towards the sea and splendid beaches, alleys offering all the simple pleasures of life: the leisurely pace, refined boutiques, cafés and restaurants, and places that are custodians of history. Discovering the beaches The Marina Grande beach is Positano's most famous beach. It is 400 metres of sandy shore set in the inlet, where you may find yourself face to face with passing VIPs. The view and the facilities available encourage lounging, but once you have left your sunbed, it is worth heading to the pier to sail to the Li Galli Archipelago: three small islands in a marine reserve surrounded by crystal-clear waters, that legend has it are populated by mermaids. You can get there by dinghy or small boat. An intimate cove embraces Fornillo Beach, made of pebbles and gravel; it's reachable on foot and a snorkelling paradise because of its magnificent seabed. Continuing on foot, you can spend some quiet time on the Spiaggia di Laurito (Laurito Beach), where the cliffs are sheer, and nature is untouched. The jagged coastline of the Gulf of Positano is full of ravines on the turquoise sea. Climb aboard a gozzo, the traditional boats, and ask to be taken to discover little beaches in secret coves, including La Porta, San Pietro Laurito and Arienzo. Many hotels also offer stretches of private beaches. A divine trek A hike in the Monti Lattari, immersed in nature. The Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods), was for many years the only link between the towns on the Amalfi Coast, before the main road was built. As you walk along, the Coast opens up to you from above and the view sweeps as far as Capri on clear days. You pass through forests of holm oaks and quench your thirst at the numerous springs; you will find vertiginous caves and precipices, the remains of cave villages, and the limestone spire Il Pistillo.   You arrive at the village of Nocelle, where you can freshen up before resuming your trek. For the more experienced and adventurous, a branch of the Sentiero degli Dei leads via an almost endless flight of steps to Cala Arienzo, usually reached by sea with little effort. A holiday resort dear to the Romans Roman aristocrats came to Positano and built extraordinary holiday residences here. There is much evidence of their fondness for this place, blessed with an enchanting landscape and a mild climate all year round, with the sea breeze alleviating the summer heat. Find artefacts of the ancient holidaymakers at the Roman Archaeological Museum - MAR, which houses a part of a 1st century AD villa, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius and brought to the surface after years of archaeological excavations. Positano Style Positano is a vertical village, perched on a rock overlooking the sea. Wander through the village's many stairways and alleyways, and don't miss a visit to the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, a stone's throw from Marina Grande Beach. Once a Benedictine monastery, later abandoned and renovated over the centuries, today it offers the architectural spectacle of a pale stone façade and a yellow, green and blue majolica dome. Inside, look out for the precious Byzantine icon. Majolica has a long tradition in Positano, and in the village ateliers you can shop for ceramic objects, from plates to trinkets. There are many boutiques selling elegant clothes if you want to follow the “Positano style”: soft, fluttering dresses, kaftans, light colours, shirts and trousers in linen and lightweight fabrics, and the ubiquitous swimwear for him and for her. Over the centuries, Positano has seen a flourishing tradition of weaving, now reinterpreted in a contemporary, holiday mood. The style is completed with flip-flop shoes, also customised by the craftsmen. After the sea, the delights of the village Positano is also luxury and high society, and the whole area offers plenty of clubs, restaurants and bars. For evening entertainment, you can choose whether to stay up high in the venues clinging to the rock, in favour of the view, or in the beach clubs, where an aperitif at sunset is also a pleasant experience. Take a seat on the terrace of a restaurant. Some good choices are mussel soup or a lemon-scented seafood salad, linguine with scampi and fried fish. Among the cheeses of the Monti Lattari, fior di latte, the same cheese that you will find on pizza, is the most popular. And if your gastronomic interests do not end there, find out how to join a themed tour: olive oil tours among the olive groves, and wine cellars amidst the vineyards.

Amalfi

Amalfi

Amalfi, regina della Costiera Un paesaggio di straordinaria bellezza ha reso Amalfi nota in tutto il mondo. Le imponenti montagne che la circondano strapiombano nel mare turchese con un potente effetto scenico. Costiera Amalfitana porta il suo nome: include quel tratto di litorale tirrenico riconosciuto dall'UNESCO Patrimonio dell'Umanità. Qui, oltre a un mare da favola, vi aspettano preziose testimonianze storiche, il borgo suggestivo e un’incantevole natura. Scegliete la vostra spiaggia Amalfi offre la possibilità di rilassanti giornate al mare da trascorrere sempre immersi in uno splendido paesaggio. La spiaggia più accessibile è la Marina Grande, in paese. È caratterizzata da sabbia e ciottolini, attrezzata e ricca di lidi, bar e ristoranti. Comodissima, e per questo spesso affollata in alta stagione, è adatta alle famiglie e ai bambini, di immediato accesso anche per gli anziani. All’opposto, la Spiaggia del Duoglio è per chi ama luoghi più appartati. Raggiungerla è già un’esperienza, percorrendo un sentiero verde e una scalinata di 400 gradini che conduce a una baietta dall’acqua perfetta. Potete recarvi qui anche su piccole imbarcazioni in partenza dal molo di Amalfi e, se desiderate un bagno di sole, partite le prime ore del mattino, perché il pomeriggio la cala è in ombra. Se siete in barca, non perdetevi neppure la Spiaggia di Santa Croce, raggiungibile soltanto via mare. Un break nel verde Dopo il relax al mare, si va alla scoperta dell‘interno salendo verso le montagne. L’itinerario consigliato è nella Riserva Naturale di Valle delle Ferriere, una passeggiata senza difficoltà di circa 3 ore. Attraversate boschi e costeggiate ruscelli, incontrate i ruderi della ferriera che riforniva di ferro la Repubblica Marinara di Amalfi e che dà il nome alla valle. Siete in pace, qui, lontani dalla folla, tra cascate e gli antichi mulini un tempo impiegati per la produzione della celebre carta di Amalfi. Durante questa escursione, visitate il placido paese di Pogerola, sulla collina Monte Falconello, e godetevi il panorama da lassù. Nel cuore della cittadina Amalfi fu una fiorente Repubblica Marinara dal IX all’XI secolo, detentrice del commercio nel Mar Tirreno verso i mercati orientali. La sua storia è raccontata dalla struttura stessa della cittadina abbarbicata sul costone, che ai viaggiatori ricorderà molto da vicino un suk. Le abitazioni sono concentrate a grappolo, vicinissime tra di loro e collegate da un dedalo di vicoli e scalinate. Esplorate il labirinto e poi puntate alla principale meraviglia architettonica: il Duomo di Sant’Andrea Apostolo, Cattedrale centrale che domina Piazza Duomo con la sua imponente scalinata. Di impianto romanico e ricostruita più volte nei secoli, oggi colpisce per la sua facciata in stile neomoresco o arabo-siciliano, di cui costituisce un esempio sublime. Dall’interno si accede al Chiostro del Paradiso, luogo di pace circoscritto da un porticato ad archi ricamati, ugualmente di influsso moresco. E c’è anche chi si sposa qui Per la sua impareggiabile posizione e lo scenario da favola, Amalfi attrae sempre più coppie, anche dall’estero, che la scelgono per la celebrazione delle proprie nozze. Il Comune mette a disposizione 3 location per il rito civile. Il Salone Morelli che si trova nella Casa Comunale, l’Arsenale della Repubblica con la sua maestosa struttura medievale e l’ex Convento dei Cappuccini. Anche ai non residenti è concesso inoltre celebrare il rito nel Duomo di Sant’Andrea Apostolo. Hotel raffinati, giardini e ottimo cibo si offrono come corollario di un memorabile ricevimento. 5 esperienze ad Amalfi tra panorami e gusto La Grotta dello Smeraldo si raggiunge sia attraverso un ascensore sia su piccole barche. La cavità carsica presenta stalattiti e stalagmiti, ma è il colore del mare a rubare la scena: uno smeraldo che gioca con i riflessi dei raggi filtranti dalla fenditura di ingresso, in mille sfumature. Sul fondale c’è un presepe subacqueo, che i sommozzatori omaggiano in occasione delle principali ricorrenze religiose. Alla sera, una volta spento il giorno, salite nel punto più alto della cittadina di Amalfi, coincidente con il Cimitero. Ci si arriva solo a piedi percorrendo le gradinate e i vicoli del borgo antico. Il panorama di luci, riflessi del mare e vecchie case è davvero impareggiabile. Quando al tramonto si svuota la Spiaggia di Marina Grande, regalatevi un aperitivo sulle terrazze dei bar, deliziosi lounge proprio sul mare. Lo Sfusato Amalfinato è il limone tipico di Amalfi, dalla forma affusolata, la polpa succosa e profumata. Bevete un limoncello a fine pasto, assaggiate una delle tante delizie di pasticceria di cui è l’ingrediente base e un gelato limone e cioccolato dai chioschi in strada. Un piatto di pasta è il modo migliore per apprezzare i sapori di Amalfi: Scialatielli ai frutti di mare, Paccheri al limone o un semplice Scarpariello, perché qui pomodoro e basilico hanno un gusto unico.

Cremona: the Torrazzo, nougat and Stradivari

Cremona may not be a big city, but it's a great one. It's known for its culture, music and of course the city's pride and joy: its violins. Not forgetting the local specialities, starting with mustard. The identity of Cremona is enriched by the rich and diverse architecture and historical heritage. Around every corner you can see traces of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, both sacred and profane, rural traditions and tempting treats like the famous Cremonese nougat. Italy's largest river, the Po, flows past Cremona and has contributed much to its development, providing a valuable source of raw materials as well as inspiration. The tangible materials for violins, violas and cellos admittedly come from the forests of Trentino, but Cremona is where spruce has been transformed into musical instruments of matchless quality since the 17th century. The intangible value of the centuries of violin makers' expertise, still in full flow today, has made Cremona a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But Cremona is closely associated with music in general. It is the city of Claudio Monteverdi, who lived here between the 16th and 17th centuries and was a genial composer of madrigals. It was also home to Amilcare Ponchielli (1834-86), a leading exponent of 19th-century opera, and of course Antonio Stradivari (1644-1737), the greatest violin maker of all time, heir of the Amati, the first great family of Cremona luthiers. Monteverdi gives his name to the Monteverdi Festival of Baroque music, held at the Amilcare Ponchielli Theatre. Stradivari is the key inspiration of the Stradivari Festival, an autumn event that brings violin virtuosos from all over the world, to hear the sounds made by the famous instruments of Cremona. Another event with a musical theme is the Summer Festival, held from June to September, with a packed programme of competitions, masterclasses and concerts. It is followed by another 3-day event in September, the Cremona Music Festival, which attracts classical and contemporary music enthusiasts.
