Casa Marco is a lovely apartment of 50 square meters (approximately 540

square feet) which sleeps four persons. It has a large terrace of 15 square

meters (160 square feet) with a view of the sea. It is approximately 100 meters

(110 yards) from the beach.

It has a bedroom with a double bed, a mezzanine level two single beds, a living,

a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen.

Casa Marco is located in Atrani, an ancient charming fishermen's village which

is 900 meters (half a mile) from Amalfi.

It is an ancient house of the historical center of the village, just a few steps

from the characteristic little square at the heart of Atrani, with its shops,

bars and open-air restaurants. From the square, going under an arch, you will be

able to reach the beach.

From Casa Marco you will also be able to walk to another charming beach, just

out of the village, that stretches in a small inlet in the rocky coast.

Casa Marco is an authentic ancient house of the coast of Amalfi, renovated with

love by its owners, who spend their own vacations there.

It is in a quiet place, inset as it is among the alleys and stairways of the

ancient burg. The place is comfortable as well, since with a short walk you will

be able to reach the main road or the sea.

To reach the house you will have to walk along a short pathway which includes 87

steps.

The house is located on the first floor. You will enter into a corridor, on

whose sides the doors of the bedroom with a double bed, of the bathroom and of

the kitchen open. The bedroom with a double bed has a window with a view of the

surrounding hamlet. The bathroom has a shower.

The kitchen is equipped with four-burner cooker, oven, refrigerator with

freezer, dishwasher. Next to the kitchen there is a small terrace, with a view

of the picturesque burg of Atrani. On this small terrace you will find a small

room with a washing machine and a toilet.

The rooms have high vaulted ceilings, which makes the house fresh even when it

is hot outside.

At the end of the corridor you will find the living room. The living room is

very airy and luminous, and it has a window and a balcony with a view of Atrani

and of the sea. The living room is furnished with table, chairs and sofa. A wood

stairway will take you from the living room to a roomy mezzanine level, where

you will find two single beds.

From the living room you will be able to enter a nice rectangular terrace, from

where you will be able to enjoy a nice and wide view of the hamlet of Atrani and

of the sea. You will find that the terrace is equipped with a beach umbrella, a

table, chairs, and deck chairs.

You will enjoy relaxing on the terrace of Casa Marco: from here your sight will

move from a wide view of the sea to the picturesque burg of Atrani. The hamlet

of Atrani is unique in the world. It is something as picturesque as you can

imagine: it is a dense set of small colored buildings, which cling to the slopes

of the rocky cliff. They are enclosed by the cliff as if they were inside a

shell which opens toward the sea.

If you look down, you will have fun uncovering the extraordinary "spontaneous"

architecture of the village, made by a maze of domes, white terraces, narrow

alleys and stairways. It is a result of the characteristic terrain of the coast,

and an important part of its charm.

Since access to Atrani is prohibited to cars, you will be able to reach Casa

Marco by foot only, along a charming white alley that stems from the main

square, climbing 87 steps.

Shops, restaurants and meeting points are all right at hand. You can walk to

Amalfi, both along the main road or along a romantic pedestrian alley, to avoid

the nuisance of cars.

By foot, climbing an ancient stairway, you can also quickly reach Ravello, even

more quickly than by car. And walking along this stairway you will be able to

enjoy breathtaking views. During your stay, allow yourself the time to take

these hikes. It is a great approach to the unique beauty of these places.

Besides being able to walk to the beach, in this area you will have a chance to

swim in rather characteristic places: from the docks in Amalfi, every 30

minutes, you will be able to board small boats that will take you, in ten

minutes, to some of the most beautiful beaches, inset in the rocky coast, which

can only be reached by boat. These small beaches are very romantic, the sea is

beautiful, and you will also find beach facilities, such as bars and

restaurants.

From the docks in Amalfi you will also be able to board ferries and hydrofoils

to Positano, Capri, Salerno, Sorrento and Naples, as well as mini-cruises for

tourists. You must indeed take a tour of the coast from the sea.

From Casa Marco it is also easy and practical to reach the tourist spots of the

Amalfi Coast by bus. If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and

Paestum are easily within reach, and, of course, Naples and Salerno as well.

Staying at this house you will be able, comfortably and without the need of a

car, to reach the beach, to take guided tours, visit the characteristic fashion

and artisans' shops, as well as attend the many cultural and artistic happenings

that take place throughout the year. Those who like go out at night will find

that the Amalfi Coast has a lot to offer: from piano-bars to very exclusive

night clubs.

The Campania region

Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sun-baked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.

Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.

It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizeable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.

The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

Amalfi Coast

Shops, restaurants and meeting points are all right at hand. You can walk to Amalfi, both along the main road or along a romantic pedestrian alley, to avoid the nuisance of cars.

By foot, climbing an ancient stairway, you can also quickly reach Ravello, even more quickly than by car. And walking along this stairway you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views. During your stay, allow yourself the time to take these hikes. It is a great approach to the unique beauty of these places.

Besides being able to walk to the beach, in this area you will have a chance to swim in rather characteristic places: from the docks in Amalfi, every 30 minutes, you will be able to board small boats that will take you, in ten minutes, to some of the most beautiful beaches, inset in the rocky coast, which can only be reached by boat.

From the docks in Amalfi you will also be able to board ferries and hydrofoils to Positano, Capri, Salerno, Sorrento and Naples, as well as mini-cruises for tourists. You must indeed take a tour of the coast from the sea.

From Casa Marco it is also easy and practical to reach the tourist spots of the Amalfi Coast by bus. If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, and, of course, Naples and Salerno as well.

Staying at this house you will be able, comfortably and without the need of a car, to reach the beach, to take guided tours, visit the characteristic fashion and artisans' shops, as well as attend the many cultural and artistic happenings that take place throughout the year. Those who like go out at night will find that the Amalfi Coast has a lot to offer: from piano-bars to very exclusive night clubs.

Waliking eastward from Amalfi for about 5 minutes, you will bump into one of the smallest and most enchanting villages in Italy: Atrani.

It is certainly the best-preserved fishing village along the Amalfi Coast. The historical town centre is characterized by a small group of pretty houses gloriously holding the main piazza, the Church of St Salvatore, the simple stone fountain, rising up towards the valley and climbing the rocky slopes, crossed by cute gardens and lemon fields.

Isolated from urban traffic and noise, the centre of Atrani is closed among its ancient houses with splendid balconies full of flowers. Piazza Umberto I faces a peaceful patch of sandy beach and sea, reachable through a lovely path, made to prevent potential damages caused by the sea storms to the ships. The young natural style, along with respect and attention for the details, make the piazza one of the most suggestive open-air parlours in Italy... sometimes even preferred at the famous piazza in Capri! :-)

Atrani was indeed another part of the maritime republic, whit a similarly styled church, showing off a bronze door moulded in Constantinople: the Church of St Salvatore de' Bireto. This church has very ancient origins: originally founded in 940, but revised in Neoclassical style. The bronze door was made in 1087, by Pantaleone Viaretta, the same artist of the door that characterizes the Dome in Amalfi. The Church of St Salvatore was used to celebrate ceremonies of election and installation of the Doges.

Antrani is situated between sheer cliffs and a turquoise crystalline sea, nearby the Valley of the Dragon. The village used to be summer residence of noble families of Amalfi: quiet and picturesque, its winding streets have remained largely unchanged.

The beauty of Atrani lies in the choreographic beach around it and the intricate maze of houses, built practically on top of each other, that make it look like a nativity scene, especially at night with the lights glimmering.

If you are fond in holy art, have a look at the collegiate church of St Maria Maddalena, built in the XIII century by the people of Atrani in honour to the Madonna for having saved them from the Saracen marauders. It has a single rectangular room, covered with a barrel vault and lit by two large baroque windows. The small sacristy holds a white marble Roman cinerary urn. The glazed tile dome and square bell-tower have become the symbol of the Atrani skyline. Next to the church is Masaniello's Cave, and below is the house where Masaniello (Neapolitan fisherman, who became leader of the revolt against Spanish Habsburg's rule in Naples in 1647) was born, built on top of a flight of 500 steps.

A little way above the old public road that connects Atrani and Amalfi is the Cave of the Saints: probable part of the old Benedictine monastery of St Quirico and Judith, founded in 986, by the archbishop Leo I. The entrance to the small cave, which opens onto a terraced lemon grove, is enclosed by one of the arches supporting a water channel. The Cave's perimeter is an irregular quadrilateral, and the walls are decorated with Byzantine-style frescoes from the 12th depicting the four evangelists. In the green background there is a warrior saint, undoubtedly St George.
