Vietri sul Mare
World Heritage Site since 1997, together with the Amalfi Coast, Vietri rises in a splendid position between the hills and the sea.
All the colors of the Amalfi Coast, the deep blue of the sea, the bright green of the woods, the golden orange of citrus fruits, seem to meet in Vietri, in the glazes and decorations of the ceramics produced since 1600 in this beautiful Campania town not far from Salerno.
Already inhabited at the time of the ancient city of Marcina, the town, in addition to offering a splendid sea, is surrounded by magnificent Mediterranean vegetation.
The main attraction of Vietri is represented neither by a monument nor by a historic building, but simply by ceramic objects.
