Starting from Piazza Duomo take Via Trinità to the right of Villa Rufolo and follow the directions for Villa Cimbrone. At roughly 10 minutes walking distance, take the stairway to the rights down Via Santa Barbara. Keeping to the left along this route and looking across the valley you can enjoy the view across the Valle del Dragone to Pontone and Torre dello Zirro, a watchtower where the Duchess of Aragona was imprisoned. About ten minutes walk up Via Santa Barbara you turn right and, following the indications to Amalfi, the paved road brings you out near a limoncello distillery. Cross the road here and follow the signs to Atrani. The steps will take through the Castiglione area and past the place from which M.C. Escher painted the bell tower of the church of Santa Maria Maddalena, in Atrani.
