You’ll also explore the breathtaking ancient Greek temples in Paestum, Alberobello’s “Trulli” (conical roofed houses) and Lecce’s beautiful Baroque architecture.

Pasquale Torrente

Pasquale Torrente was born in Cetara, a quaint village on the Amalfi Coast. Il Convento - the family trattoria opened in 1969 by the parents in a seventeenth-century cloister - is considered one of the best trattorias in Italy and serves unforgettable spaghetti with "Colatura di Alici", Cetara's symbolic product. Pasquale didn't stop there and brought his cuisine all over Italy and around the world: from Rome to Istanbul to Dubai. Extremist and visionary, he defines himself as "homeless", but in his wanderings around the world, he always carries a bottle of "Colatura di Alici", the precious anchovies sauce.

Set in the magic borgo of Minervino, nestled between majestic olive trees and lush vineyards, Palazzo Ducale Venture is a perfect choice for any screenwriter looking for inspiration, a place where finding incredible, compelling and different stories.
l Piccolo Sant’Andrea, a 5-star hotel in Praiano, on the Amalfi coast, is more than just a hotel: it’s a place destined to remain in the heart and in the memory of those who choose it for their holidays. A corner of paradise perched on a rock, suspended between the blue sea and the azure sky, where the air has the heady scent of orange blossoms.
A "diffused hotel" hotel within the oldest and most extreme area of the Sassi with an exclusive rock characterization characterized almost exclusively by caves with very few architectural emergencies. There are 18 rooms, almost all inside the caves, including a reception room and an imposing common cave (historically it was also a church) where all the convivial events will take place. The choice, made to try to enhance these forms in the name of authenticity and identity, was to design geometric, minimalist, and essential furnishing interventions.
