The Amalfi Coast – in italian “Costiera Amalfitana” – is a stretch of coastline on the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in the Province of Salerno in Southern Italy. The Amalfi Coast is a popular tourist destination for the region and Italy as a whole, attracting thousands of tourists annually.
During the X / XI centuries, the Duchy of Amalfi existed on the territory of the Amalfi Coast, centered in the town of Amalfi. The Amalfi coast was later controlled by the Principality of Salerno, until Amalfi was sacked by the Republic of Pisa in 1137. Since then the Amalfi coast has experienced a crisis.
In 1997, the Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape.
Furore, near Agerola, is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. Furore is located in the Coast of Amalfi.
The municipality of Furore expands from the sea level, where there is the hamlet of the Fiordo di Furore, and a little civil parish partly belonging to Praiano named Marina di Praia, up to Agerola (550 meters above sea level). The village is subdivided into 3 districts (contrade): Cicala (Sant’Elia), Ciuccio (Santo Jaco) and Gatta (Sant’Agnelo).
A small crack in the rocks, an ancient gorge that was a hidden place for the bandits in the past, an inlet where the sea can show all its power. The Furore’s fjord is sort or natural port, where is possible to arrive only by the sea side, surmounted by a natural rock arch that perfectly complete the majesty of this place.
The fjord hosts few rare animals thanks to its environment: the Pilgrim hawk and few other rare species. There are also few very rare ferns, this place is a natural oasis made for wilderness lovers and people who needs to relax.
