A TERRACE ON THE AMALFI COAST

The Lattari Mountains are an extraordinary natural park suspended on the Amalfi Coast. In the evening, the silence of the mountain night is touched by the echo of the waves crashing on the cliffs of the coast.

Situated at about 600 m. altitude, Agerola town is settled in a valley enclosed on three sides by mountains that reach 1400 m., overlooking the Amalfi Coast and entire Gulf of Salerno.

Ideal for a healthy and relaxing holiday, Agerola enjoys a strategic position as a starting point for interesting excursions in the surrounding area: Naples, Salerno, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Castellammare di Stabia, Sorrento, Vico Equense, Capri, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello .
