The “Amalfi Drive” is said to be the most spectacular in Europe, the winding cliff top road offers breathtaking panoramic views at every turn. Each spot is a world of it own, a fantastic world that which dazzles the imagination and inspires unforgettable impressions.
We make a stop just above Positano, splendid jewel of this coastline. Then on the Amalfi, which gives it the name to the whole coast on which it lies. Once a thriving Marine Republic, powerful and prosperous and now a thriving holiday resort. The unmistakeable cluster of white tightly packed houses rising up the hillside is dominated by the beautiful Cathedral. Housed in the magnificent Cathedral are remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi and also Scotland – Saint Andrew.
From Amalfi we visit Ravello which nestles eleven hundred feet above the sea in the mountainside. We visit the Villa Rufolo which gave the musician Richard Wagner the inspiration to create some of his most famous works. As a result of this, the gardens of the villa are the venue for the Wagner Festival which take place each summer.
