This is an intense day tour spent admiring the colors of the spectacular Amalfi Coast from the sea, with its small villages mounted like gems where the narrow inlets prevent the Mount Lattari from coming forward. From the bottom, participants will admire the Saracen towers, which once were able to rapidly connect the entire coastal defensive system.
The experience will be aboard of a traditional fishing boat, discovering the sea and its traditions, practicing the traditional fishing activity. Then, it will be possible to taste aboard the freshly caught fish, cooked according to the ancient traditional recipes. When tired, participants will take a break in the magnificent inlets and swim in the crystal clear waters.
The adventure will start from the Amalfi harbor, and will proceed along the entire Amalfi Bay up to Positano, De Li Galli Island. Participants will watch fishermen at work and learn the different fishing techniques: dropping and pulling the nets, fishing “a bolentino” and with the rods over the sandbanks.
