The latest trend in tourism are the so-called "experiences," which allow everyone to participate in activities of many different types to enrich their vacation with unforgettable moments! You can do many of them on the Amalfi Coast too, read the article and discover them all!

"Experiences" are the new frontier of tourism: today's travelers no longer want to be passive spectators, but want to feel that they are the protagonists of their trip, and actively take part in all those activities that are typical of the place visited and that can only be experienced there, in contact with people of a culture different from their own. This new trend has given rise to what is referred to in the industry as "experiential tourism," which as time goes on is growing, increasing the choice of activities available to the customer and adapting them to all ages and budgets.
But why should you choose experiences? The success of this new type of tourism lies precisely in the fact that it has a strong emotional impact on the traveler: experiences allow you to do things you would otherwise never do and to make friends with people who are far from you in terms of language, culture and customs. Moreover, they will leave you with beautiful memories and you will feel enriched for having spent moments of sharing, discovery and fun!
Social media is the primary tool for promoting these experiences; moreover, now, you can also easily find them on some of the best-known tourism portals. Cooking classes, food and wine tours, a thousand sports and adrenaline activities... Read on if you want to know what are the most popular experiences on the Amalfi Coast and choose your favorite! In the "A few tips" box below you will find all the links you need for each experience.

Kayak Tours on the Amalfi Coast

A bit of gluttony: the lemon based tours!

If it is essential for you to experience the typical cuisine of the place you visit, then these experiences are the best for you!
Besides the very popular cooking classes (to which I have dedicated this article) that are all the rage, there are many activities dedicated to the typical food of the Amalfi Coast. 
As you know, one of the symbols of the coastal culinary tradition is the sfusato amalfitano, that is, the variety of lemon that is cultivated purely here and that gives rise to so many delicacies, such as the Limoncello liqueur, as well as famous desserts such as the "Delizie," babas with limoncello, profiteroles... in short, if you love this fruit you can participate in one of the many lemon tours that take place here. 
The Melchiò Restaurant in Furore offers you the chance to participate in a guided tour of a lemon grove on the "Da Carluccio" farm, after which you can return to the base and devote yourself to a cooking class focused entirely on the sfusato, preparing a full lemon menu! 
The restaurant Le Bontà del Capo in Conca dei Marini also organizes a "Limoncello Tour": in this case, in addition to visiting an ancient lemon grove on the Coast, you will discover all the stages of Limoncello production in a local factory. Again, lunch with a menu of lemon recipes is included, and at the end of the tour you will be given a Limoncello recipe, printed on Amalfi paper!

Inebriating experiences: the wine tours!

As I told you here, the Amalfi Coast is also renowned for its wines! And it is precisely in the villages that produce the best ones that many tours dedicated to them have sprung up. 
If you love wine, you can't miss these experiences: not only will you be able to visit the vineyards where these incredible wines are born, but you will also hear the stories of the producers and their wineries, and how with passion and dedication they manage to achieve high quality goals. Of course, you won't be left high and dry! The tours include tastings of all the wines produced, accompanied by traditional dishes, and in some cases you will also have the opportunity to combine the wine tasting experience with a cooking class. 
Among the most renowned wineries to organize wine tours are Cantine Marisa Cuomo in Furore, Vigne di Raito in Vietri sul Mare and Tenuta San Francesco in Tramonti. In the box below you will find all the useful links to learn more! 

An adrenaline rush: experiences for all sport lovers

Artisan experiences: how to make Amalfi paper

Paper production has a very ancient history in Amalfi and even today you can discover all about it inside the Paper Museum! Precisely for this reason, the Museum has made available to visitors the opportunity to participate in a unique experience: combining the two symbols of Amalfi, the lemon and paper, and creating the "Amalfi paper and Lemon experience!" After a visit to a local lemon grove with a guide, you will be hosted in the Museum where you can create a handmade sheet of paper. If you want to immerse yourself in Amalfi culture this is definitely the activity for you! 

So what are you waiting for? Don't settle for being a passive spectator, choose your experience and experience the Amalfi Coast in an original and fun way!
