The coast line from Punta Campanella to Positano is also marked by glimpses of high natural value for geological and environmental characteristics, and from the shoreline to the sea offers an array of breathtaking views of Li Galli, Capri, Positano. From the sea the appearance changes due to the presence of bare and barren nature of steep slopes, like those of a coastline full of coves and bays accessible only by sea, the feeling for those who sail in these waters is of isolation and total contact with nature. From Positano to Amalfi Coast but is characterized by settlements in valleys sloping down towards the sea, interspersed with large green areas, creating a landscape that is prestigious result of the integration of human work and the work of nature not easily accessible.

The Amalfi Coast is dotted with towers and fortifications, from the tip of Massalubrense to the threshold of Salerno, with the remains of its castle towering claims the role of the provincial capital and center of a wider territorial context. The many tourist sites that have been made over the last decades, have substantially altered the value of this beautiful coastal area. Each of the countries that now dot the Amalfi coast has preserved intact over the centuries of its old charm thanks to the ever-present relationship between the territory and the immense beauty of artistic and cultural heritage, bearing witness to a glorious past. Its inhabitants express sensitivity and creativity in crafts ceramics, handmade paper processing, the chestnut baskets, wrought iron and fashion Positano.
The position of the peninsula, particularly happy, sunny and protected from the wind, created a privileged environment in terms of climate, but certainly it is no coincidence that urban settlements are all of high-medieval origin, which date back to a period in such as security and the ability of defense were key factors in the creation of a settlement.The most ancient of the population are in the Caves of the Amalfi Positano, the most important of which is called The Door, in it's lower strata of the filing document with the Upper Paleolithic lithic industry on mountain goat hunters, deer and wild boar the layers above refer, instead, a Mesolithic population of terrestrial and marine shellfish gatherers.In classical times the Amalfi Coast shows an intact forest cover with no built-up areas, the sources of those ages speak only of the three small rocks, now called Li Galli and ancient Sirenum Petrae, held at the home of Homer's sirens whose cult Sorrento was dedicated at a sanctuary. But these houses were like those of Minori, Positano, Li Galli and the small island, accessible only by sea and of members of the imperial court that at the time of Augustus and Tiberius, made frequent visits to nearby Capri.
