3 days in one huge terrace overlooking a cobalt blue sea.
The Amalfi Coast is part of one of the 51 Italian sites that, thanks to its landscape, natural and cultural heritage, make it a heritage recognized and protected by UNESCO. There is only one large terrace overlooking a cobalt blue sea with rocky walls on the water and cultivated citrus, vines and olive trees. Among the 16 beautiful communes that make up the Coast there is our goal: Maiori.
Even Maiori's birth, though uncertain, is rooted in myth. Pliny for example, makes him descend from Maya goddess. What is certain is that Maiori was founded by an Etruscan lucumone named after "Reghinna" and then the Romans, who used these lands to make their vacation places, added Maior to distinguish it from the nearby Minor. Maiori is the name that has remained to our day. The fortunes of Maiori, like all the communes of the coast, are due to the birth of the Amalfi Republic, when Amalfi became a hub for commercial exchanges and marine power with colonies across the Mediterranean, and Maiori became its main port Arsenal seat.
But history is characterized by victories in defeats, periods of gold at phases of total decay and so did these areas with the fall of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, when the coast became the land of conquest of Saracen, Norman and Pisan. Maiori is a wonderful village that opens up to the sea. It is famous because it accommodates the largest beach on the coast, about 1 km of flat sand for these rocky areas, and small coves is a real exception. Going to discover the architectural beauties of the coast, or relaxing while enjoying a bit of summer lounging on this blue sea, it's up to you. We have the task of bringing you to know these enchanting sceneries.
During this three days we will be the guests of the Canottieri Partenio di Maiori and of his president Francesco Noio.
We will set out at sunset on Friday, to start discovering the beauty of this landscape. Then again Saturday, early in the morning, to enjoy a placid sea, a light wind and a coastal sunrise. In the daytime, for those who want it, excursions are planned in the coastal communes, to the discovery of Amalfi, or the nearby Minori. On Sunday, however, we will drive our bow to Atrani, another wonderful coastal village, or if you are tired of riding we could always "paddle" with the possibility of canoeing.
For dinners we will make you discover the specialties of the place, unique flavors, as only this land can give.
