Destination the beautiful Amalfitan Coast!

Partenza ore 10,30 rientro ore 13.30

The fjord of Furore is the first jewel of our trip with the old fishermen's village, recently restored. From the bridge above a yearly international diving contest takes place. We will then make a stop for a visit at the enchanting Emerald grotto. (entrance extra 6.00 euro). On our way to Amalfi you will see the Cape of Conca with its Saracen tower. An ancient watchtower built in the sixteenth-century by the viceroy of Naples, Pedro de Toledo, to defend the territory against invasions by the Turks.The Marina di Conca became popular in the sixties and seventies when it hosted many celebrities, most notable Gianni Agnelli, Sofia Loren, Princess Margaret of England and Jacqueline Kennedy, who in 1961 when returning from a visit in Ravello, made a stop here for a swim. And it is here, near a natural arch, that we also stop for a swim. We move on to Amalfi and further on to the small town of Atrani, from where we make our return to Marina di Praia.
