The small town of Vietri sul Mare is located on the coastline between Salerno and Amalfi and is approx. 21 km from Amalfi, and is particularly known for its production of distinctive pottery. It's easy to reach from Rome and Naples from the A3 / E45 or from the south for that matter. There is a train station in the town so you can easily arrive here by train.
It tends to be a convenient place to start the Amalfi Coast drive, or bus trip as buses stop here every hour on route from Salerno to Amalfi and back. Since it is the last or first town on the Amalfi Coast, inhabitants like to call it “The First Pearl of the Amalfi,” claiming that Amalfi begins at Vietri. Vietri is the origin of dishes, flowerpots, vases and tiles found in restaurants, hotels and homes throughout the Amalfi area.
There is a market in town on Wednesday in both the historical part of the town and in the lower part of the city; Marina di Vietri.
