Description: The Amalfi coast holds immense physical beauty and natural diversity. The area has seen intensive human settlement since the early Middle Ages. Such towns as Amalfi and Ravello boast architectural and artistic works of great importance. The rural areas illustrate the inhabitants’ resourcefulness in adapting their use of the land to the diverse nature of the local topography, which varies from terraced vineyards and orchards on the bottom slopes to vast upland pastures. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The Amalfi Coast, or Costiera Amalfitana in Italian, is a stretch of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula of Italy (Province of Salerno), extending from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east. The towns lying on the Amalfi Coast are Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori, Minori, Ravello, Scala, Atrani, Amalfi, Conca dei Marini, Praiano and Positano. --Wikipedia.
