What to Expect On Your All-inclusive Gastronomic Shore Excursion from Amalfi
Your exciting day will commence with one of our English-speaking chauffeurs picking you up at the Amalfi port. Your drive will take you along the hilly countryside of the enchantingly beautiful Amalfi coast.
Your first stop will at a family-owned Limonaia or lemon grove. Since 1840, four generations of the family have tended to the cultivation with their labor of love and passion. A warm welcome by a family member will mark the beginning of your wonderful experience at the groves where you will witness the cultivation of their quality products. The tantalizing taste of their homemade lemon and orange marmalades will be yours to sample as you also savor their farm fresh bread, lemonade and limoncello with an exclusive illustration of their family recipe! Dip chunks of homemade bread into their extra virgin olive oils that include the classic plain, lemon, orange, basil, oregano, rosemary and hot chili.
As you revel in the flavors of the morning, your chauffeur will take you to your next stop, a Caseificio which means a fresh cheese factory. Your starting point will be the cattle shed. Here you will see how the animals are bred. The farmers leave no stone unturned as they tend to their stock with care.
The cheese tasting experience starts here. As you witness fresh cheese being made by the cheesemaker, he will give you the joy of getting a taste right there. Sample the range of cheese from the aged Provolone del Monaco D.O.P., Cacciottine, Ricotta and Mozzarella. Relax and enjoy a fresh tomato salad accompanied with a variety of cheese as you breathe in the glory of your gastronomic experience. A glass of chilled wine will complete the picture-perfect moment, so say “Cheese” as you capture some timeless memories!
Schiazzano is your next stop. Your chauffeur will regale you with information about the area as he takes you to a lovely restaurant in the old town center.
Learn the art of making the perfect Neapolitan pizza. Lucio and his son will share their family recipe that uses mother yeast. You will be in for a thrilling culinary experience as you don your apron and start kneading the dough. As the tarantella song plays in the background, Lucio and his team will show you how to throw your pizza in the air! Top it with your favorite ingredients to give it your personal touch. Just two minutes in a wood oven and your pizza is ready to be devoured. Relish the flavor of your hard work with some water, wine and dessert (all inclusive).
A leisurely stroll through the historical center of Termini will make the perfect ending to a wonderful day full of mouth-watering flavors, beautiful scenery and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Stretch out at a local bar or café or just gather your thoughts as you breathe in the amazing aura of the island of Capri and the sun-kissed Mediterranean Sea.
Your chauffeur will then drive you back to the Amalfi port with your heart and mind brimming over with memories of this soul fulfilling day! As you greet fellow travelers back on the ship, they are sure to notice your refreshed glow from the day’s delights.
