come and experience the Italian family life on the Amalfi coast!


If you're tired of touristic places and you want to live an authentic experience with locals, if you want to learn the secrets of the italian cuisine, if you are curious to go inside an italian family house and experience the lifestyle…this is the tour for you!!!

We go out the most touristic routes to meet a special family of Amalfi.
They've chosen to live in a fantastic spot inside the valley, a calm place reachable only by foot. they restored their house, the gardens and a small shop to sell their products.

They produce vegetables, fruits, lemons, honey, they dry wild herbs to make spices or tea. They teach people how to use old herbs as remedies for disease, they try to get back all the knowledge that we received in heritage and that we lost.
They do an hard but great job!

In this tour we learn how to cook a complete italian meal of the south Italy, we seat at the family table and we eat together as part of the family. They will share their story with us, we will spend an unforgettable time!

Itinerary

We meet in Amalfi main square and we start walking inside the historic center. On our way we can see the characteristic architecture of this town with white houses one on the top of the other, making Amalfi looking as a nativity scene.

We go into the valley on a paved path. We can admire all the lemon terraces on the way, limestone walls that climb the top of the mountains, the gorgeous nature around us.

After 40 minutes walking, we find our place, the farm where we meet the family and we visit their house with a fantastic terrace facing the valley, between lemon trees.

Mena, the owner will show us, in her kitchen how to prepare a complete italian menu:
antipasto, pasta with seasonal vegetables sauce, lemon scaloppine with a vegetable side dish and a dessert.

All the ingredients used are organic and their own production, flavors that you will never forget!

We eat together and after dinner we come back to Amalfi by the same path.
