Cetara is a small fishing village on the Amalfi Coast set between sea and mountains. It has always been considered a niche tourist destination thanks to its deep connection with traditional economic activities, primarily fishing, thus preserving, practically intact, its charm of a seaside village. The link with the sea, which bathes the lower part of the village, together with the mountains that surround it in the upper part, give the village a particular amphitheater shape that, to date, characterizes the village making it a landing place for tourists in search of art, sustainability, promotion and enhancement of natural territories as well as gastronomic excellence. The village is also famous for the DOP-certified Anchovy colatura and IGP-certified Sfusato Amalfitano lemon.
