In front of you there will be breathtaking view in its entirety: below you will see a stripe of white house of Praiano, each one surrounded by the green of its own garden, which is roughly interrupted by the blue sea.
The Torre di Grado watchtower and the majolica dome of the Church of Saint Gennaro stand among the houses. On your right, your sight will embrace a wide view of the coast which surrounds the characteristic village of Positano, and will reach Punta Campanella and the island of Capri.
