Tour description

Step into the heart of the Amalfi Coast for an immersive culinary adventure that will awaken your senses and deepen your connection to Italian cuisine. Our "Cooking with a Local Family under the Lemons" tour invites you to the enchanting town of Minori, where the sun-kissed lemons grow heavy on the trees, and the sea whispers tales of ancient mariners. Departing from your hotel in a private car or van, you'll journey to a family home nestled within a thriving lemon grove, set high above the picturesque landscape.

This full-day tour is not just about learning to cook; it's about experiencing the soul of Amalfi through its flavors, traditions, and generous hospitality. After a scenic walk to the top of the town, you'll immerse yourself in the simple elegance of Amalfi Coast cuisine. Hand-select vegetables from the family's garden and master the culinary secrets that have been passed down through generations.

Your cooking class culminates in a delightful lunch on the terrace, where each dish comes with a side of spectacular views over the lemon groves and azure sea. The experience concludes with a leisurely walk down through panoramic paths and hidden gardens, making your journey back to reality as sweet as the limoncello that awaits at its end.
