Very pretty town well worth the visit. the striking beach is a lovely place to sit with gelato and look up at the houses on cliffs above. impressive bridge takes cars over the cove and makes an impressive back drop.

It' s easy, the main entrance to the town goes forward to a parking, there are carabinieris guiding the tourists to the parking. And then, a little walk and you are just there.

There is quite a large car park on Via Rocco Giuliani. Then a short stroll up Via Tritone to get to the old city. There is a network of one-way streets to navigate. Easiest is to go down Via Pompeo Sarnelli, turn right into... More
