I described in a previous post my journey on foot to Vietri sul Mare, the first village of the Amalfi coast.
This week on another sea view walk I reached Cetara, about 9 km from Salerno. It took me almost an hour and a half to arrive there, enjoying wonderful views
or living in a villa by the sea with a small garden at the back.
Thanks to these views time flew by and I suddenly realized I was close to my goal.
Cetara is famous for its anchovy sauce, a condiment used to flavour fresh or boiled vegetables, enrich main courses based on fish or simply to be added to spaghetti with garlic, oil and chili pepper. The sauce is the amber liquid that is obtained after a period of 4 or 5 months of maceration of salted anchovies. In the small fishing village, it is prepared by the fishermen following the tradition handed down over the years from father to son.
The beach and the harbour are the first images that can be seen as you come into Cetara.
As in all the villages of the Amalfi Coast, here I also immediately breathed a captivating holiday air.
And then, finally, I enjoyed a well deserved swim in the sea of Cetara.
