Positano Ceramic tour, Lemon tour
Leaving from: Sorrento - Salerno - Napoli- Amalfi - Ravello
This special private tour in Positano by Sorrento Star Cars takes you to the Amalfi Coast, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, beautiful and famous for its unforgettable views, for its history that breathes in every corner of its towns that preserve important legacies of a lavish past, for its artisans who hand make unique and particular products and for its confectionery and food and wine products that have made the cuisine and Amalfi pastries renowned all over the world.
We will drive through the scenic road SS163, built during the Bourbon period to connect the thirteen beautiful towns that make up the coast. We will arrive in Positano, a glamorous town known to international VIPs, famous for the production of leather sandals and light cotton and linen dresses that enrich the collections of the ‘Moda Mare Positano’, a fashion brand created in the 1960s and worn by the world's most famous stars, actresses and style icons.
In Positano, we will begin our Lemon tour with a fantastic tasting of Limoncello, a lemon liqueur produced in particular in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi coast.
Here in Positano and throughout the Amalfi Coast, Limoncello is made with a particular quality of lemon, the Amalfi Lemon, characteristic of this area. The skins are left to macerate in pure alcohol for a few days and then mixed with an infusion of water and sugar to give the liqueur a beautiful intense yellow colouring and a wonderful scent and aroma. The Limoncello which is obtained in this way is then filtered in decorated bottles of many different shapes that become a souvenir gift to take home to family and friends.
The Amalfi Coast has a thousand other products, unique to this territory, which the artisans have tried to reproduce for centuries and stop the colours, scents and atmosphere which are made magical by the sun that caresses it and by the sea that skims the coastline on which the typical Mediterranean plants grow: olive trees, broom trees, capers, oleanders, strawberry trees and agaves.
Some of the most popular pieces of craftsmanship in the world are the artistic ceramics of the Amalfi Coast, produced right here, handpainted everyday objects that decorate houses and gardens. Unique pieces are decorated, as was done in ancient times, by master potters, artists and creative people who give life and soul to red clay and, with water, fire and their manual skills, make it immortal.
Our private tour in Positano will continue in one of the oldest companies in Positano where you can admire the craftsmen at work, learn all the stages of their work, observe how masterfully the ceramics are decorated by hand by the potters and finally bring some original pieces home as souvenirs and mementoes of this fantastic tour in Positano after discovering the handcrafted products of the Amalfi Coast.
The Positano tour with limoncello tasting and a visit to a pottery company of Sorrento Star Cars ends with the return to your hotel at the agreed time.
