Driving along this winding coastal road will bring you to some amazing towns perched high on the cliff side above the shimmering waters below. Positano, Amalfi and Ravello are perhaps the most well known examples and each one has its own selection of interesting tourist attractions. For example, the small town of Amalfi has a short stretch of pebbled beach, bustling piazzas and an impressive cathedral. You can also visit the Grotta dello Smeraldo, a haunting sea cave named after the eerie emerald colour that reflects off the waves.
Located on the small town square is the Church of Saint Agatha. Inside you will find a beautifully ornate alter, inlaid with mother of peal and dating back to the sixteen hundreds.

Festa di Sant'Andreanational event
Each June 27th, Amalfi holds a festival in honor of Sant'Andrea, the town's patron saint and the protector of fishermen and fishmongers.
The event commemorates the miraculous storm of 1544, apparently conjured up by the saint, which prevented the Saracen pirate Kair-Ad-Din from conquering the city.
The festival begins with a procession during which a statue of the saint, who the locals affectionately refer to as "'o' viecchio" (the Old One), is carried to the beach.
Here the fishermen take over and it is their job to take the statue all the way to the Duomo.
The event concludes with a beautiful firework display over the sea surrounding the Amalfi Coast.
"Le Giornate del ...national event
The coastal village of Cetara is famous for its tuna and anchovies, which form the basis of its culinary tradition. "Le Giornate del Pesce Azzurro" (Days of the Blue Fish), held in the first week of August each year, are the continuation of the town's "A tutto tonno" ('Tuna with Everything') event, first held in 1992.
A gastronomic fair and an important cultural event, the Days of the Blue Fish introduce visitors to Cetrara's ancient fishing tradition via tastings and a series of fascinating seminars, some of which are held aboard the Amalfi Coast's traditional tuna fishing boats.
In the evening, the town's port transforms into a huge, open air restaurant where holidaymakers can enjoy the freshest of fish, accompanied by traditional music.
