5km (3 miles) W of Salerno on SS 163

The gateway to the Amalfi Coast, Vietri is a small working town with a well-established traditional craft industry. Vietri's main street, with its famous ceramic shops, gets a lot of tourist attention; but it usually makes for a hit-and-run shopping excursion, which leaves the area otherwise undisturbed. Vietri is also well worth a visit for its scenic seashore.
