Additional Location Information
Conca dei Marini was founded by the ancient Romans, around the year 500 BC, like many of the other towns on the Amalfi Coast. Conca's Latin name means "Basin of the Seas", this is surely because of the way its coastline contours along the Mediterranean sea, creating enchanting small fiords, and gulfs.
Conca dei Marini is also famous for its "Grotta dello Smeraldo" (Emerald Grotto) renowned all over the world for its amazing emerald-green waters, and its under sea "Presepe" (the scene of the birth of Christ). The Grotto is reachable by both land, and ferry. Once you reach the Grotto, you are taken on a guided boat tour of the interior cave.
Other worthy sites to visit in Conca are: the Church of San Pancrazio (it has an amazing view of the Amalfi Coast from its courtyard), San Antonio of Padua, San Michele Arcangelo, and the Monastery of Santa Rosa.
Stunning views, and tranquility, are key features of Conca dei Marini, and it is located only a very short distance from Amalfi, Positano, and many other interesting towns along the Amalfi Coast.
POMPEII (40 minutes drive)
Completely buried by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D, Pompeii is now a huge tourist attraction, drawing millions of visitors eager to explore the ruins and archaeological digs that give us a glimpse of everyday life back before the eruption.
AMALFI (5 minutes drive)
This town is made up of narrow lanes and alleys that climb up the hills and see the houses piled one on top of the other. Sample the local Limoncello drink in one of the cafes or visit the â€œParadise Cloister,â€? dating back to the thirteenth century.
CAPRI (30 minutes by boat)
Capri is a Mediterranean island of calcareous origin that has been visited over the centuries by intellectuals, artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauty. A mix of history, nature, worldliness, culture and events that daily blend together and bring the Legend of Capri to life; a legend that sees no comparison anywhere in the world.
POSITANO (25 minutes drive)
Once a wealthy maritime power, it began the last century as a fishing settlement, and ended it as a popular, and rather chi-chi resort, famous for its hotels and boutiques as well as for the winding stairways that connect the town, and the towering cliffs above. Every inch of land is prized; buildings are stacked up one above the other on the steep slopes, and open areas are intensively cultivated with fruit and vegetables thriving in the fertile volcanic soil.
PAESTUM (1 hour 30 minutes drive)
Paestum is a truly enchanting and atmospheric place, and a 'must' on any classical tour of Italy. Just south of the Sorrento peninsula and Amalfi Coast, and a mile inland, this is a haunting archaeological site where three Greek temples stand in the middle of the countryside. Paestum is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site
NAPLES (1 hour drive)
Naples is the largest city in south Italy and one of the most beautiful, particularly around the Bay of Naples. The capital city of Campania, Naples is a sprawling metropolis that was founded by Greeks, enlarged by Romans and as a result is rich in history and stunning architecture.
It's a shining example of beauty and culture, and as such one of the most celebrated places in Italy, with its narrow, winding roads lined with flowers and characteristic shops of ceramics and souvenirs. The scenery along the mountainous coast contrasts with the exuberance of the flora throughout the region. In the gardens of Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone as well as those of private villas an extraordinary variety of plants and shrubs with vivid and sweet-smelling flowers grows.
