Enjoy lunch at leisure in either the towns of Amalfi or Ravello. A good spot in Amalfi is Pizzeria da Maria- indeed it has been listed as as one of the ten best pizzerias on the Amalfi Coast in more than 1 guidebook. In addition to a selection of pizzas, a wide variety of seafood dishes, and a few pasta dishes are served. Alternatively, Il Mulino, a 200m walk uphill from the town square is another good choice. if you feel like a fine dining experience for lunch (or indeed for dinner), the Villa Cibrone is an excellent choice and is in a fantastically beautiful location. Come before 6pm and you can stroll through the property's extensive landscaped gardens, and take in the marvellous sweeping views of the bay. This place comes highly recommended!
Spend the evening discovering the wonderful world of wine! You will be made feel welcome upon arrival in your hosts' private home situated on a cliff top 1,000 ft above the sea with stunning coastal views. The wine class with dinner with the Sommelier Gennaro will no doubt prove to be an amazing experience for those who appreciate good food and wine. The evening is kicked off by analyzing the wine (visual, olfactory, and tasting analysis) and the sommelier will explain how the wine is made, as well as some giving an insight into the most famous vines of the Campania region. After the initial wine tasting (without food), a food and wine pairing will be done. Because we start small and move to more complex food, you will be able to see the difference with the combination of food and wine. The meal typically consists of olives, salty biscuits, toasted bread with dry tomatoes, pumpkins preserve, cherry tomatoes, caprese, eggplant parmigiana, meatballs, pasta frittata, a mix of more than 10 cheeses, and finally, for desert, cakes with grappa and limoncello - truly a feast fit for a king! The sommelier Gennaro is also a cheese and olive oil taster and Grappa collectionist, so you can be sure that you are in expert hands! If you would like return transportation to be arranged, you can do this in advance through your Sales Advisor, or alternatively, you can arrange a taxi on site.
