Castello, Vieste

In the center of eastern Italy, in the province of Puglia, Vieste is a very popular resort with many beaches. The most beautiful is that of Castello, which apart from the miles of soft sand dominates a huge white rock on one of the edges. The legend says that a girl named Vieste petrified while waiting for her lover, a fisherman who left one morning and never returned.

Arienzo, Positano

It is also called the 300 steps, because of the many stairs that have to be descended before someone dives in the dark blue waters. The other way is to approach the beach by sea. Very close to this location, many famous people own villas, such as the house of Franco Zeffirelli. Just because it is on the south side you will enjoy more sun that any corner of the region. Apart from the corners of which are organized guest spots, one can simply spread his beach towel on the sand without a lounger.
