Then, visiting the Amalfi Coast by boat allows visiting those magic and hidden places impossible to see from the dry land: caves, coves, little beaches and all those places only reachable by sea.
Moreover, on the boat, you can experiment by close the beauty of the Stacks of Capri or stop in Vietri sul Mare to discover its wonderful ceramics or Punta Campanella, one of the protected reserves of the Coast.
On the boat, you can also feel the emotion of being a little like Ulysses. In fact, in front of Positano, there are the three islets of Li Galli, homeland of the mythological Sirens who tried to bewitch Ulysses. It is not allowed landing on these islets because they are private. However, it is possible to circumnavigate them also trying to peek inside the villa built on the biggest island, designed by the French architect Le Corbusier.
