The perfect combination of adrenaline and calm, strapped in as we climb up super panoramic rock face. Suitable for both first timers and avid climbers, for kids and adults alike, we offer a series of climbs and rappels spread out over different areas of the coast.

Our climbs require anywhere from 20-50 min of hike tilne to get to the start point, but hike time aside, each excursion adventure lasts approx. 3 hours.

And not to worry; you'll be strapped in so once we reach our peak, your instructor will lower you down in your harness. Then its time to clitnb up again as you have the flexibility of enjoying multiple climbs during the duration of your excursion.

Whether you choose to hike up the rock face in Positano, Punta Campanella, or the rock wall along the Path of the Gods, this is an experience you will never forget.

Trekking the Path of the Gods

Join us for a wonderful day hiking one of the most picturesque trekking routes in Italy. If we start where the hike naturally begins, we'll head up past Vettica Maggiore, the small suburb of Amalfi, to Bomerano. It is here where you'll take your first photo of the amazing panorama that unfold before you, as we start our hike in the direction of Positano. For those staying close to Positano and Praiano, we'll suggest an alternate starting point.

Today's leisure trek is one of the coast's most aesthetic, with views as far as the eyes can see at every tum. Pass monuments like the San Domenico Monastery, the 12th century church of "St. Maria a Castro", and the annexed 16th Century Dominican Cloister along the route. Continuing from West to East, we will walk through unique, wild Mediterranean brush, coastal forests, and caves suspended high above the bright blue sea.

We continue until reaching the small village of Nocelle, a tiny suburb just north of Positano, with only 300 inhabitants. Ti1ne has left this beautiful town untouched, in part due to the restricted car access, and it's here where you'll see what it's like to live in the mountains that stretch from the water to the sky. From here, those ready to finish the hike in its entirely can follow our guide back down to Positano; for those that need a little assistance, take the local bus down from Nocelle or our guide can call a taxi, to help you with the last small leg of the trek.

The ease of the hike is adequate for most, although there are different starting points that may require to walk lots of stairs (ex, those starting in Praiano will start the hike by walking stairs to the path crossing). Once we reach the main "path", the terrain is either flat or in descent. Those suffering from vertigo may experience difficulty during this walk.

This hike is recommended for those who want to enjoy the Amalfi Coast from a privileged vantage point while discovering the natural landscape and engaging in light physical activity. Be sure to bring your phone, as you will have the opportunity to take spectacular photos. We recommend you bring bottled water, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes. We'll take care of the rest!

Vietri Through the Eyes of An Artist

Vietri sul Mare, declared a UNESCO heritage in 1997, is the birthplace of handmade Italian ceramics, known worldwide for its renowned creations, produced here since the 17th century. Today we embark on a truly unique experience, through the eyes and stories of your guide and ombudsman, Guido Gambone, lineage to two ofVietri's greatest artists ever, both responsible for putting this town on a global scale.

Born in the US to an American mother and Italian father, Guido grew up in a culturally vibrant family. His Grandfather, also named Guido, was one of the most important and influential Italian ceramic artists in the mid 20th century. His work fused painting, primitivism, tradition and modern artistic movements and became enormously influential the world over. This passion and success for ceramics and art was passed down to Guido's father, Bruno Gambone, an internationally renowned artist in his own right, and ultimately to Guido, who has spent his life in and around the arts.

Today is a highly personalized experience with Guido, his friends, artist colleagues, and stories from his childhood. We roam the tiny streets of the town that feels more like a magnificent open-air museum, with its ancient buildings decorated in shiny tiles and its numerous family;run shops boasting hand;made ceramic objects of all kinds. The worl~renowned ceramics produced in this area are referred to as 11ceramica vietrese," traditionally known for their classical decor, pastel colours, and motifs of nature, animals, and the beautiful landscapes of the small villages found along the coastline. During your visit, you will see how these local ceramics are produced, from the mouldings of the clay to the hand;painted decoration of the final product. All the colors of the Amalfi Coast ; the deep blue of the sea, the bright green of the vegetation, the gilded oranges and yellows of the citrus - are represented in the classic and modern pieces that flow from the many ceramics artisan workshops that line the streets.

We'll wander the streets, meet the people, and experience the jewel of the Amalfi Coast like a local. For those desirous of extending their day, enhance your day with several unique options:

  • A private visit to the studio of the region's most prominent ceramic artist. Not open to the public, this husband and wife run studio displays the craftsmanship and creations of the artist who has inspired an entire new generation.
  • A one-of-a-kind hands-on workshop. Starting with a piece of clay, and under your artist's guidance, one of the last heirs to his family's precious handmade ceramics business, you'll create your own Italian masterpiece in his boutique workshop and gallery, a space where he expresses the artistic talent and honors learned as a child.
  • Ask about a visit to the Provincial museum dedicated to the ceramics of the Amalfi Coast. Opened in 1981, the museum is housed on the grounds of Villa Guariglia, home to the Italian ambassador, and covers ceramics produced in the area from the 17th to the 20th centuries. A truly one;ofa;kind way to visit this one-of-a-kind Italian gem of a town. A must-do for art or ceramic afficionados.

Guido Francis Gambone

Born in the US to an American mother and Italian father, Guido grew up in a culturally vibrant, globetrotting family. In fact from an early age, thanks in part to his transatlantic roots, Guido has travelled the world extensively, and worked professionally in the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

With his family endeavors in finance and art, Giudo enjoys a uniquely rich & worldly network of friends and colleagues. His Grandfather, also named Guido, was one of the most important and influential Italian ceramic artists in the mid 20th century. His work fused painting, primitivism, tradition and modern artistic movements and became enormously influential the world over. This passion and success for ceramics and art was passed down to Guido's father, Bruno Gambone, an internationally renowned artist in his own right, and ultimately to Guido, who has spent his life in and around the arts.

His professional path also crossed over into the world of wine and travel, thanks to his relationships with some of the foremost winemakers in Italy and his prior work as a country manager with a Butterfield & Robinson. His personality and discreet nature, along with his extensive knowledge of the country, are a perfect combination for our discerning clients.

Known worldwide as a sy1nbol of the wannth and beauty of the Amalfi Coast, lemons have found in this area the ideal 1nild climate to grow since time im1ne1norial. The precious fruits were initially called "citro", but from the 13th century their name changed to the Arabic word "limunzello". The entire population along the Coast was engaged in the cultivation, production and trading of the le1nons, which were exported in great quantities and appreciated for both their medical qualities and gastronomic versatility. Of the many lemon groves dotting the terraced hills of the Coast, the oldest is certainly the one owned by the Aceto Fa1nily, only a few steps out of the historical center of Amalfi. It was in 1825 when the family bought a s1nall piece of land and started their activity as le1non producers and traders. Luigi ("Don Gigino"), now nearly 90 years old, keeps devoting all his time and energies to the family business. "I was conceived under a lemon tree and I've got lemon juice running through my veins!" he says, and his eyes sparkle with the passion of a 20 years old boy. Don Gigino's entire family still works in the limoneto, walking up and down the steep terraces with tireless fervor. In their free time they open the doors to curious visitors from all corners of the world, treating them with the unfussy, warm hospitality so typical of the South.

On your private experience at this estate, you will be guided by one of the family members on a walking tour to the le1non grove, learning everything about the unique "Sfusato Amalfitano" and the history of this factory which has no rivals on the Amalfi Coast. You will certainly be treated with a glass of their refreshing lemonade and delicious lemon cake before ending the tour at the small factory, where lemons are processed and turned into sublime limoncello. To quote Gigino, "we are protecting a heritage which does not only belong to our family, but to all Humanity". In this sense, sharing time with him and his family is not only a truly authentic Italian experience, but a way to honor six generations of labor and passion for the unmatchable beauty of Amalfi Coast.
