Amalfi Lemon Tour

Rating: 10 Rated 10 out of 10, based on 4 reviewsSee reviews

The Lemon Tour takes place in the unique scenario of the typical lemon gardens of Amalfi. These are not "standard" gardens. It's a vertical farm, very hard to preserve. Terracing and pergolas built with chestnut wood of local forests, bees for pollination and honey production, pure and crystal-clear spring water... are all unique elements that contribute to make these gardens a great example of sustainable agriculture and natural engineering.

You will have the privilege to taste the Amalfitan traditional products: Limoncello liquor, Lemonciok (Limoncello liquor with Swiss chocolate liquor), Limoncello cream, lemonades, lemon cakes and more.
Moreover, you will visit the factory where Limoncello and other delicious products are made, so you can buy them directly from the producers, at exclusive special prices.

But let's see in detail what kind of magic is the Lemon Tour...

Amalfi Lemon Tour

My husband and me were so excited to take the Lemon Tour! The lemon groves are very well kept and we love all the products they make, especially the lemon jam, orange jam and lemon honey. They are biological products, so delicious! Amalfitans are very lucky to have the possibility to buy these products whenever they want.

The typical products

At the Lemon Tour there is one basic philosophy: to get the most of organic quality and simple life. And you realize this from every little detail, just tasting the products made with Amalfitan lemons.

In this environment, the importance of bees is crucial. In fact, pollinating the lemon trees, a continuous blooming is guaranteed. Moreover, the owners of this farm produce a compact and soft honey with a fresh and velvety taste. Together with a cup of tea (or low-fat milk) and wholemeal biscuits or a homemade cake, this kind of organic honey is ideal for a healthy breakfast.

In the middle of the Lemon Tour we take a relaxing break by an open-air kitchen, usually used for the cooking classes which take place among these beautiful lemon groves. Well, during this break you'll taste a 100% organic lemonade and a divine (yes, divine!) Amalfitan lemon cake.

The Limoncello Factory

Each organic lemon is hand-peeled, this is one of the few secrets of a delicious Amalfitan Limoncello. We said "few" because it's true: the original Amalfitan Limoncello is made of: Alcool, lemons, water and sugar. Nothing else. And it's tremendously delicious! The only "secrets" are in the wise way the ingredients are mixed, and here at the Limoncello Factory you'll have the proof that the knowledge of tradition is terrific.

The Peasants' Museum

The Amalfi coast is full of stairs, this is nothing new. Well but, how the ancient farmers used to carry lemons from the top of their farms? On the backs of mules and with their own feet, taking the baskets full of lemons on their shoulders.
