Furore – the Picturesque Fjord on the Amalfi Coast

Above the divine coast which meander in serpentines in the mountains, always with a panoramic view over the charming coast and the Gulf of Salerno, is FURORE, a village whose houses are spread out on the slope, a place who exudes peace and quiet. In this beautiful landscape, the broad view opens up, frees thoughts from their tight bonds, boundaries disappear, the heart expands. You can feel the lush green of nature, the fertile earth that produces lush lemons and fine wine.

In Furore you can hear the silence. It is also known as “the village that doesn’t exist” as is do not have any village centre but just small groups of houses sprout and isolated high about the cliffs. On terraces climbing the mountainside you can see a colorful mixture of lemon and olive trees, grapevines, and colorful majolicas between small bell towers and red roofs.

Furore gets its name from the noise of the rushing sea when it invades into the narrow fiord. The Furore fjord is one of the most picturesque places in Italy. At its natural harbor, there is a little restaurant with fine fish dishes.

Only four kilometers from Amalfi is the charming bay with a spectacular attraction at Conca de ‘Marini: the emerald grotto. You can enter the Emerald Cave by boat. The water in the grotto is an intense green color. This color is created by the light refraction of the sea water. In the Emerald Grotto, the stalagmites shape the cave into a temple full of figures. You can reach the Emerald Cave from the sea or from Amalfitana Street. From the Furore Fjord you can walk to the entrance of the cave. A lift takes visitors down to the entrance to the Emerald Grotto.
