Colourful views at the Amalfi coast

You can see it shining from afar, the colorful majolica cupola of Vietri sul Mare’s church S. Giovanni Battista. Vietri is located in a green valley at the foot of the mountain Liberatore and it is the first town at the Amalfi coast after Salerno.

The town was founded by the Etruscans, who also brought along the craft of pottery.

Whichever direction you approach the town from, everywhere you meet with the shops’ colorful displays of hand-painted porcelain and tiles.

In the Middle Ages, it was from Vietri, the free port of the powerful abbey of Cava dei Tirreni, that ceramics were exported throughout the whole Mediterranean area.

Baroque architecture in town - cosy atmosphere at our holiday homes and apartments

During the Baroque era, the craft experienced an upswing. The shining majolica cupolas along the coast have since then been something like a hallmark of the Amalfitana.

The 19th century was the time of the piastrelle, the richly adorned floor tiles which are found in many of the older hotels.

It was between the two World Wars that, from the point of view of artistry, Vietri experienced its most significant period, in the form of migrant labor.

In the 1920s, German artists such as Richard Dölker or Irene Kowalski-Wegner came to the Amalfi coast, where they found inspiration, work and favorable living conditions.

At  Raito, which is located above Vietri, the medieval tower houses a ceramics museum which is worth a visit and where traditional products and artistic works are on display.

Marina di Vietri

The sandy beach of Marina di Vietri with its clean, turquoise colored sea invites you to go for a swim and relax.

The "faraglioni" of Vietri are two rocks rising up out of the sea and called the "two brothers" because they look so much alike.

According to legend, it was Poseidon himself who put the rocks into the sea in remembrance of his two brothers who gave their lives to rescue a young girl from the sea.
