The fjord that enchants thousands of tourists from all over the world is located in Furore, a small village on the Amalfi Coast nestled between Amalfi and Positano, stretching to the border with Praiano and Conca dei Marini.

Fiordo di Furore is just one of the many wonders of this corner of Campania, with its magical atmosphere somewhere between legend and reality: one thing’s for sure though, spending a day here will become a memory to be carried in your heart forever.
