Furore was founded from the Romans and thanks to its geological conformation, this village was never invaded by the Saracen.
It is situated inside the homonymous fjord and there are two villages, one on the sea, the other on the mountains.
The two villages are connected by a long step, built during the Republic of Amalfi. It has been the only connection from the sea to the mountains, for a long time.
Albergo Casa Alfonso
"My hotel - Albergo Casa Alfonso"
"Mediterranean Garden - breakfast"
The breakfast is served at this enchanting terrace in the shadow of lemon trees, grapevines and bougainvillea flowers. The views from this terrace are breathtaking.
Breakfast is simple but that didn't count too much.... the "eye-feeding" the views gave me were energizing enough!!!!

"Restaurant - Hotel Alfonso a Mare"
The meals, when you are taken half or full board options at Casa Alfonso, are served at Hotel Alfonso a Mare ( same owners ) down at Marina de Praia - 1 km from the Casa Alfonso and easily reached by foot, car, motorbike or by the "Pullmino Giallo", the little yellow bus.
" The restaurant "Alfonso a Mare" is a member of a chain of restaurants named "Costa Diva". "Costa Diva" is an association that was founded in Year 1999, after the tourist-cultural guidelines were created - "Costa Diva - Le vie del cinema (The Roads of the cinema)".
These guidelines were promoted by "Comunità Montana Penisola Amalfitana" to increase the value of natural film sets created along the Amalfi Coast by film directors, actors/actresses and celebrities from all around the world (Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Roman Polanski, Marcello Mastroianni, Humphrey Bogart, Anna Magnani, Ingrid Bergman and many more).
