Vietri sul Mare or Vietri on the Sea

Vietri sul Mare
Vietri sul Mare, on the Amalfi Coast

Vietri sul Mare is the first town of the famous Amalfi Coast (in Italian Costiera Amalfitana) in the Campania region of southern Italy. It is in the province of Salerno, just west of that city. Its name means Vietri on the sea.

The Amalfi Coast drive, leading to Positano (and Sorrento) over the famous, spectacular and dangerous road SS163, begins here. Therefore, Vietri sul Mare is a popular tourist destination.

Vietri sul Mare is called “The First Pearl of the Amalfi Coast".
