Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are not only famous as a resort by the pristine sea, but also for the mountains that dominate the entire peninsula. Milky Mountains straddle between the gulfs of Salerno and Naples and form the backbone of the Sorrento-Amalfi Peninsula. The complex is mainly limestone, known for its panoramic views and allows excursions suspended between sky and sea, often with the view of Capri. The mountains that form the backbone of the peninsula were called by the ancient Romans and Sireniani Monti Lattari (name that still retain) with an explicit reference to the production of milk and cheese, as in the name documented: Taurobulae ‘that nourish bulls’ .
The Lattari Mountains are the western extension Picentini of Campania and extend into the Tyrrhenian Sea forming the Sorrento peninsula.
The southern slope of the mountain is very steep and life to the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast towards which descend numerous streams. The northern slopes down to the coast, forming a coastal plateau.
Many are the paths by which the Lattari are crossed: they depart from the Sorrento Peninsula and, coming up to Maiori, offer to those who travels, a unique and impressive.
Once, when the current carriage roads had not yet been built, these paths were the only way to connect to the ground all the towns of the Amalfi Coast. Milky Mountains offer tourists not only the opportunity to get off on the coasts, but also heading into the mountain forests, with a countless number of trails for hikers.
