Welcome to the Amalfi Coast, one of the most beautiful and relaxing places to visit in all of Italy. Now, behind me is the village of Positano, famous for its square little houses and hanging gardens overlooking the ocean. The 1,000-year-old land area between Rome and Naples is known as the historical area of Ciociaria, named for the ancient footwear worn by local shepherds. The history and spirit of Ciociaria was shaped during the first centuries of the Middle Ages from all the attention it received from the Roman Catholic Church and its popes.
Located in the heart of Ciociaria is a charming spa town called Fiuggi. Known for its restorative waters, Fiuggi is an ideal vacation destination just a short drive from Rome. While it boasts world class hotels and tourist facilities, it never feels like an overcrowded resort. Fiuggi is still a little medieval town in the heart of the Roman countryside, with old-fashioned rural traditions that celebrate culture, nature, and a love of life. But Fiuggi is most famous for its natural spring whose water is said to cure kidney stones and liver disease. This "water cure" was made popular by Michelangelo, who accidentally discovered it while looking for a new marble quarry. His kidney stones were supposedly dissolved after drinking water from the spring.
