Path of Lemons
The path of the Lemons is a pleasant walk, intoxicated by the scent of lemons and satisfied by the wonderful views that we will observe along the way.
We start from Maiori from the collegiate church of Santa Maria a Mare built in the thirteenth century, which we leave behind climbing the stairs of Via Vena, resting on the steep rocky ridge, out of the town, we will find ourselves in a beautiful valley surrounded by terraces, here we meet a rich and varied vegetation, synthesis of the Mediterranean, including the characteristic trees of “sciuscelle” local name of carob, olive trees, and vines.
A few steps and you get to the picturesque and ancient village of Torre, in the municipality of Minori.
We then cross the whole village until we reach a beautiful panoramic terrace overlooking Minori, the viewpoint of the “mortella”, from here we descend to Minori in a few minutes, where taking a picturesque staircase will take us to the center of the beautiful Ravello, the final stop of our trek.
