At some point during his exploration of the Amalfi coast, Turner travelled by sea between Amalfi and Salerno. This page contains five views of the rugged, mountainous coastline between Vietri sul Mare and Salerno. Although it is not clear whether the artist was travelling east to west or vice versa, he has filled the page with successive vistas as seen from a boat sailing close to the shore. Visible in the second and third sketches from the top is Vietri sul Mare itself, identifiable from its medieval watch-tower and the dome and bell-tower of the Church of San Giovanni. Meanwhile the two lower studies represent the view coming into Salerno, with the castle on the hill to the far right-hand side.
