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. It is here, near a natural arch, that we will 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.
 

The emerald grotto

is one of the gems of the Amalfi Coast. Well-known in the 19th century, the grotto was somehow forgotten and only re-discovered in 1932 by a local sailor, Luigi Buonocore. The grotto was named "Emerald" for the incredible colors that filter from an underground opening and fill the cave with intense nuances of green. The inside of the cavern is filled with stalagmites, stalactites and strange "work of arts" created by time and nature. It is home to an underwater nativity scene, made ceramics artisan from nearby Vietri in 1956.

 Conca dei Marini was the favorite swimming spot of Jaqueline Kennedy during her summer holidays in 1962. Every morning, she took the convertible Fiat 600 and went to this little beach for water-skiing together with Gianni Agnelli .
