Vietri sul Mare
Starting from Salerno the first city we encounter on the Amalfi Coast is Vietri sul Mare.
It is worldwide famous for artistics ceramics characterized by strong colors. The productions of ceramics dates back to the Middle Ages,
thanks to the abundance of clay in this region. The first document about a sale of ceramics in Vietri sul Mare is from 1472.
Cetara, about five kilometers from Vietri sul Mare along the Amalfi Coast, has always been a small
fishing village during the ages and its name is supposed to be related to tuna.
Other scientists believe that Cetara derives from the latin word "citrus", meaning "lemon".
Typical of Cetara are recipies with anchovy, in particular the fermentation of anchovies marinated in jars like the
"garum" of the Romans. Famous are spaghetti with this sauce made from anchovies.
Maiori & Minori
Continuing along the Amalfi coast we found Maiori, about ten kilometers from Cetara.
Its old name was Reghinna Major, from the name of the etruscan lucomon Reghinna. It was called Major to distinguish it from Reghinna Minor,
today called Minori. Maiori has the longest beach along the Amalfi Coast and many monuments. Among others
The Collegiate Church of Santa Maria a Mare, from XIII century, on the top of a hill. It changed its name from the original one after
a statue of the Madonna was found on the beach of Maiori. Minori is less then two kilometers from Maiori and the name comes from Reghinna Minor.
