One of the destinations of Roma Pickup is the area of Naples and Salerno, including the wonderful Sorrento and Positano.
Sorrento is 47km distant from Naples, stands on a terrace of tuff, is a city full of vegetation (its lemon trees are very famous) and has a mild climate.
The city is told to originate from ancient Greece, but the old town shows clearly a roman origin. Actually in its old town are the most interesting local attractions, as the S. Francesco d’Assisi Church and the Duomo, rebuilt in the XV century.
Positano, instead, is a province of Salerno and belongs geographically to the Amalfi Coast. It is told to be a place for vacation since the ancient Rome age. It is told that the name of Positano comes from a boat which carried a painting of the Assumption of Mary in front of those lands; there was no wind in the air, and the monks on board heard some words coming from the painting: “Posa, posa”, that mean “Stop there”. So the monks stopped on that coast and brought the painting where now rises the central Church of Positano. The following morning the painting was not there anymore, it had miraculously come on the sea shore, where the monks wanted a church to be built, a church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary.
