Points of interest

Vietri sul Mare is historically identified with the ancient Marcina, before Etruscan - Samnite and then Roman coastal settlement. The precise origin of Marcina is not yet fully defined, although the most common hypothesis tells that its supposed location is Marina di Vietri, . The printed publication of the voice Marcina begins in the fifteenth century, when Europe began to spread early editions of letterpress Strabo Geography; the spread of the current word among historians and journalism came with the geographer Filippo Cluverio, who in 1642 wrote: "Marcinae oppidum illud est, quonunc vulgo dicitur Veteri".
