The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful places in Italy, only, for this reason, it’s worth to visit.

amArriving from Naples and going to Sorrento you will pass along a road which arrives at a small crossroads, from there you will through headlong a “huge snake of turns” which is the Amalfi Coast.

Every turn is a surprise and it’s breathtaking. From one side you admire the sea and the islands, from the other side there are huge cliffs between terraces.

The small villages of the coast appear slowly, one after the other, from Positano to Amalfi, climbing the coast they look like flying above the sea. To one climber who comes here on the coast, the view of our limestone will be clear.

The potential is much and there are first-class cliffs. The center of rock climbing is Positano, all the equipped cliffs are all around this idyllic place, and are all accessible on foot from a parking spot in the middle of the small town of Montepertuso.

The Mount Gambera with its big hole in the middle is between the most interesting rock formations. But the pearls for climbing in Positano are Cannabis, O’ Piscione and the Paretone (=Big Wall): the first two seem to be twin sisters and the climbing here is athletic. The Paretone (=Big Wall) is an immense wall full of concretions, a real jewel.

For those who prefer technical climbing there is the cliff at La Selva and, a few minutes walking from here, you can find Mirabella, another beautiful gem between overhangs and technical slabs.


Prendere al’Autostrada A3 Napoli Salerno, ed uscire a Castellammare di Stabia.

Appena usciti prendere la SS 145, e proseguire in direzione di Sorrento, superando la cittadina di Castellammare.

Proseguire sulla SS 145. Giunti nella cittadina di Piano di Sorrento, abbandonarla, e prendere la SS163  seguendo le indicazioni per Positano.

Arrivati a un bivio, proprio alla periferia di Positano, prendere la stradina in salita a sinistra (Via Monsignor Saverio Cinque), seguendo le indicazioni per MontePertuso, e percorrerla fino ad arrivare al paesino (attenzione perchè è molto stretta). Una volta arrivati a Monte Pertuso, attraversarla fino al grande parcheggio per turisti, che si trova sulla destra.

Il parcheggio al lato della strada è vietato durante tutto l’anno, ma nelle stagioni fredde di solito (anche se non possiamo assicurarlo) è tollerato.
