Activities

Trekking

The surroundings of the seven village 'fragments' of Ravello amount to a wild, scenic garden affording leisurely walks or more challenging treks up into the mountains. There are many options that include walks from Scala to Pontone & Torre dello Ziro, an ancient watch-tower surveying a wide stretch of the sea for pirates and Saracene invaders. From there are stepped paths and lanes leading down to the beaches at Minori, Atrani, and Amalfi.

Horse-riding

Horses are available for treks on most of the scenic mountain routes.

Tennis

Tennis games or classes may be arranged at two courts located in Ravello.

Snorkelling & Diving

Facilities and equipment are provided at most of the coastal resorts, notably in Amalfi and Minori.

Italian / Neapolitan cooking lessons

Short courses are offered at several hotel-restaurants along the coast, or alternatively in a private, cliff-side home in Ravello. The courses provide varied, but typical tastes of Southern Italian cuisine and a glass of two of the best local D.O.C. wines.
