Furore: Holiday apartments and Bed&Breakfast


The area around Furore is one of the most charming coastal sections of the Amalfitana.

The fascinating Furore-Fjord is the only one of its kind in the Mediterranean area and forms the wild-romantic setting of many Italian films.

Charming coastal area at a wild and romantic fjord

It is a unique landscape that opens up between Positano and Amalfi: an arm of the sea bordered by rough high-rising limestone rock faces stretches into a deep valley.

The famous Furore-Fjord is the only one of its kind in the Mediterranean area and forms the wildly romantic setting of many Italian films. Roberto Rossellini, for example, shot two films starring Anna Magnani, one of them the classic „Amore“. A small museum in one of the small cubic houses nestling against the rocks bears reminders of these two stars' sojourn.

If you drive along coastal road SS163 at the Amalfi coast, you can catch a glimpse of the gorge – the fjord is spanned by a bridge 30 metres high. 

You wonder at the houses clinging to the lime rock faces and admire the unique landscape formed by the mountain torrent Schiato.

This depression in the landscape was quite naturally used by the locals as a natural harbour and for quite a while, starting in the early Middle Ages, the fjord was a trans-shipment point for all kinds of goods. The waters of the Schiato were the means of driving the paper and flour mills – today, a small „Ecomuseo“ in an old paper mill reminds us of this nearly forgotten handicraft.

„Il paese dipinto“: Colourful holiday homes and apartments

Small stepped paths take you from the fjord to the higher village districts. The Costiera Amalfitana shows its most beautiful face here, too: surrounded by charming lemon and vine terraces, scattered houses nestle against the mountain slopes.

Furore calls itself a „paese dipinto“, a painted village – for several years, this coastal town has been inviting artists to perpetuate their works of art on house and supporting walls. Those who venture into these higher districts of Furore will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the coast.
