The remains of the lava from the Vesuvius Volcano, in the region of Napoli, brought fertile land to the Amalfi Coast, where the famous Sfusato Amalfitano Lemons, grapes, tomatoes and olive trees are grown. For this reason, the region is known as one of the “freshest” cuisines in Italy!
A tourist destination since ancient Rome, the Amalfi Coast, or Divina Costiera, is a paradise of incomparable beauty and natural diversity located in southern Italy. The Costa receives thousands of people every year who are attracted by the crystal clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the cliffs set in small colorful houses and the local cuisine.
The Amalfi Coast was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, for its unique topography and history presented in the region's dishes and architecture. Sights such as the Cathedral of Sant Andrea, the Cathedral Santa Assunta date back centuries, with peculiar architectures that mix Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance and Norman-Arabic.
