We are approaching the end of our virtual tour of Amalfi. This is the last installment of our four-part gallery dedicated to the town, a popular tourist destination in Italy. Previously, we looked at the very center of Amalfi and what you can find walking inland (Part 1 and Part 2). In Part 3, we looked at the eastern side of the town. It time to complete our exploration with looking at Amalfi's western end (beginning from piazza Flavio Gioia in the direction towards Positano).

Having explored inland areas of Amalfi around the central string of its several streets, via Lorenzo d'Amalfi, via Pietro Capuano, via Cardinal Marino Del Giudice (which is essentially the same street with different parts having different names) in part one and part two of our Amalfi photo gallery, we are ready to shift our attention to the areas east from the town's center covered on this page and to the west (Part 4).

We continue our exploration of Amalfi's historic center. The first part of our Amalfi photo gallery covered the area from piazza Flavio Gioia to the beginning of via Cardinal Marino Del Giudice. In the second part, we'll walk a bit further inland until the place called "Faenza." Then we return back following essentially the same route until we reach piazza Duomo paying more attention to the western side of our itinerary. Instead of continuing through piazza Duomo, we will turn right to explore largo Duca Piccolomini and piazza dei Dogi.

In addition to our page with the travel idea describing Amalfi (Italy) we added to our site extensive photo galleries about the town of Amalfi. Amalfi is not big - its population is less than six thousand people. However, because of its location, climate, historic and cultural heritage as well as the beauty of the sea and surrounding landscape, many thousands of visitors come to Amalfi. And there is a lot to see in the town. The first part of the gallery starts on piazza Flavio Gioia, a transportation hub with buses, cars and boats arriving to the square every day loading and unloading visitors. From piazza Flavio Gioia we'll proceed to piazza Duomo and then inland reaching the point where the limited traffic zone ends

John Steinbeck, an American writer, once wrote about Positano: "Positano bites deep, it is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone." This small town located on one of the most beautiful stretches of coast of the whole Mediterranean, is a must see place offering a unique opportunity to meet the nature as well as the life, culture, and the traditions people of Positano. This annotated photo gallery offer a virtual excursion through the town. Our gallery contains more than 70 photos to give you some ideas about Positano and its life.

If you have never been to Hotel San Pietro di Positano in Italy, nothing can prepare you, neither Fromms with detailed hotel description, nor hundreds reviews of people who visited it for a kind of a shock when you reach your destination. You see a pole with a sign saying Hotel San Pietro and the address is correct - Via Laurito, 2 Positano. But where is the building? There is only an ancient chapel laced with vines. Oh, yes, there is also a parking lot, but is it for hotel or for the chapel? Just don't worry, go ahead and park your car - you have arrived.

As you remember we started our exploration of Positano at Sponda (this happens to be the Eastern part of the town). We continued idle browsing along the streets of the town going down. As ancients say - all the ways lead to Rome, in our case our ways lead us to "Spiaggia Grande" (Big Beach).
