AMALFI LEMON EXPERIENCE
The cultivation of lemons on the Amalfi Coast has always been linked to the name of Aceto, a family whose aim has always been to make the benefits of this precious fruit known all over the world for almost 200 years.
It all began with Salvatore Aceto which, back in 1825, bought a small plot of land in Ravello, thus starting the activity of lemon producer and trader.
Not being able to count on a huge land extension and on production volumes as high as the main competitors, the Aceto’s decide to differentiate by starting a campaign to raise awareness of their particular type of lemon, the “Sfusato Amalfitano”, unique in the world for quality and organoleptic characteristics.
With the Lemon tours you can feel and taste the true essence of the Amalfi Coast, where the “Sfusato amalfitano” is born and begins its journey to conquer the palates of the whole world. You will discover all the production phases: from the cultivation of lemons to the production of all the delicacies whose main ingredient is the Sfusato.
Walking in our lemon groves you will have the chance to admire the farmers at work and visiting our laboratories you can discover the secrets of preparation of our typical products such as the famous elixir “limoncello”, lemon jam and honey of our bees. This journey will end with a toast to taste our products. The century-old tradition of this world will take on a tangible value in the Museum of rural culture Arts and Crafts, which we created with care and passion to enrich your journey into the kingdom of the Amalfi lemon by showcasing the tools of the trade, equipment and documents that hand of man had created over the centuries to best perform this fascinating job.
