What to Expect On Your All-inclusive Gastronomic Shore Excursion from Naples
Your eagerly awaited day will start with our English-speaking chauffeur picking you up at the cruise ship terminal in Naples and driving along the hilly roads facing the beautiful cliffs. Your first stop will be at a Limonaia or lemon grove that has been in existence since 1850 and has seen four generations of the family tending to it with hard work and care.
A family member will welcome you and show you how they produce high quality genuine products. You will get the chance to taste mouth-watering homemade lemon and orange marmalades on farm fresh, warm bread. Indulge in some lemonade and limoncello with an illustration of their family recipe! Spread some of the house extra virgin olive oils that include plain, lemon, orange, basil, oregano, rosemary and hot chili on homemade bread.
With the flavors still tingling on your taste buds, your chauffeur will proceed to your next stop, a “Caseificio”, or a fresh cheese factory. At the cattle shed, you will be amazed to see the hard work the farmers put in as they to tend to the livestock. At the caseificio, you will be privileged to see the cheese maker preparing fresh cheese in front of you. The tasting is next! A variety of cheese, starting with aged Provolone Del Monaco DOP and continuing with cacciottine, ricotta and mozzarella are yours to sample. Say “Cheese” and “Cheers” as you relax in these surroundings enjoying fresh cheese accompanied by a delicious tomato salad and chilled wine.
