WHAT WE WILL VISIT
The tour starts from Marina Grande di Sorrento, the ancient fishing village separated from the rest of the city by a promontory on which the villa of Augustus’ nephew once stood.
After passing through the ancient door (from the 3rd century BC) we will admire “the Baths of Queen Giovanna”, an enchanting place which is accessed from the sea through a rock arch.
Legend has it that here Queen Giovanna, sovereign of Naples in the first half of the 1300s, entertained her “handsome and young” lovers, then throwing them from the surrounding rocks so that they would not tell of their secret encounters.
We will reach the Bay of Ieranto, a natural area included in the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella and which belongs, for more than half, to the FAI. A wonderful inlet facing the Faraglioni of Capri, which is divided into Baia Grande and Baia Piccola, separated by Punta Capitello.
Continuing we will arrive at Marina di Puolo. The small village made up of fishermen’s houses and then to Capo Massa, a part of Massa Lubrense city, on whose promontory stands Villa Angelina, home of the great ship owner Achille Lauro. Here, from the great viewpoint overlooking the sea, the “Commendatore” used to follow the navigation of his ships which, departing from the port of Naples, used to divert their route to address the famous “bow” of greeting (3 long whistles) to the families of the crews on board.
Continuing the navigation, we will admire the ancient fishing village of Marina della Lobra, enclosed in a natural inlet on the coast and dominated by the Lobra Sanctuary, to which it owes its name. The inhabited area, an agglomeration of multicolored houses, still populated today mainly by fishermen, develops all around the steps leading from the church down to the sea, and offers the visitor an undoubtedly picturesque spectacle, in its entirety of sounds, colours and smells with a typically Mediterranean charm.
Our navigation will continue up to Punta Campanella, a land of history and legends. In 1300 a tower was built here with the aim of sighting and sounding the alarm in case of Saracen raids arriving from the sea. A bell was placed on the top of the tower which rang in case of alarm, propagating the signal to the other towers positioned along the coast.
Before landing in Positano, a stop in the bay of Nerano, a strip of coast where the Roman emperor Tiberius Nero landed from Capri, is a must.
We will then arrive at Marina Grande, the main beach of Positano: a postcard setting and a cosmopolitan frequentation, a large beach of almost 300 meters, with the Li Galli islands in front and the cascade of colourful houses behind. Finally, between the sea and the rock, we arrive at Fornillo beach, the elegant heart of Positano and a favourite meeting point for those looking for a quieter and noiseless beach than in Marina Grande.
Cultural and Wine Experience
After the walk through the shopping streets of Positano, begins the guided tour of the Primaria Casa Vinicola di Furore, one of the most important wineries of the whole Amalfi Coast.
The visit will start from the cellars and vineyards, and then proceed on a food and wine tour that will allow you to taste the variety of extreme wines (three types of wine) and taste the culinary specialties of Furore.
La Primaria Casa Vinicola di Furore is the winery that produces excellent wines known all over the world: the wines of the Costa di Furore, obtained from the vineyards lying sheer above the Gulf of Salerno, steep slopes that chase each other in the sun and rocks that plunge into the crystal clear water of the Amalfi coast. Between bays and enchanting inlets, the vineyards of the estate dominate Furore Fjord overlooking the Gulf of Salerno.
Love, passion and tradition are the three elements that make the wine of this coast one of the best worldwide. The selection of noble grapes, the search for the right degree of freshness and humidity combined with the passage of time, old secrets handed down by local winemakers and cutting-edge processing techniques give life to wines of the highest quality, esteemed all over the world.
