BOUTIQUE SMALL GROUP CULINARY TOUR

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s top destinations and it is a firm favourite with travellers. Stretching about 50 km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast has the most breathtaking scenery and views to die for.

A meandering coastal road is flanked with lemon groves and whitewashed villas to one side and sheer cliffs that drop down to a dazzling blue sea on the other. Your cookery holiday will be greatly inspired by this region’s superbly fresh ingredients, like San Marzano tomatoes from the vine and intensely aromatic lemons, its tasty seafood and of course, pizza.
