Amalfi Coast Excursion

Furore Gorge

This is a large gorge cut into the rock, dug out by a torrent, with scanty waters coming down from the tableland of Agerola. The rocks steeply sloping down, the roar of the sea in the gorge, the deep shadow, the contrast created by the different and fantastic colours of the landscape makes this valley a very charming corner. Here we find a most particular set of houses, just five or six gathered on a steep slope and crossed by winding steps, appearing like a miniature village. If you are fortunate enough to pass the gorge at night when it is lit up you would be forgiven in thinking you had stumbled upon a lavish theatrical set.
