One of the symbols of the Amalfi Coast, the lemon adds its colorful touch to the terraced landscape, to the hand-painted ceramics and, of course, to the local culinary traditions. The Amalfi Coast lemon is a treasure and one that you should experience while you’re visiting the area. What’s the best way? On the Amalfi Lemon Experience Tour! Created by the Aceto family, who have been cultivating lemons on the Amalfi Coast for six generations, this is a unique opportunity to walk among the lemon groves. Along the way you’ll learn about the history of lemon production on the Amalfi Coast, the unique challenges, and enjoy a tasting and visit to the family’s personal museum and laboratory where they produce limoncello and many other delights!

Recently I was able to join the Amalfi Lemon Experience Tour with Nicki from Positano Daily Photo, and we loved it! Enjoy her fun video of the tour and then read on below for a photo tour of the day exploring the lemon groves of Amalfi.



Wasn’t that fabulous? I love Nicki’s videos, and if you enjoyed that as well don’t forget to subscribe to her Nicki Positano YouTube channel so you don’t miss any in the future. Now come along and join me on a photo tour of the day!

Hop on the cart for the ride up to the top of Amalfi to the Aceto family lemon groves


Learning about how the terraced lemon groves are created and the green and black nets to protect the trees in the winter


Salvatore Aceto leading the Lemon Tour – he is so passionate about his family’s traditions!


Taste testing Amalfi lemons – you can eat the whole thing since they are organic



Walking through the lemon groves and learning about the harvest and hard work it is to grow lemons on the Amalfi Coast



The terraces of lemons are connected so the lemon trees grow from one terrace to another to maximize space


The delicate lemon trees are covered with black nets until late spring to protect them



Although much of the harvest is done by hand and heavy crates of lemons carried on the shoulders, this helps them move the crates down the mountainside



Luigi Aceto, Salvatore’s father, is still hard at work splitting the willow branches that are used to tie the lemon tree branches to the wooden pergolas



Charming display for a tasting of lemons during the tour



Fresh lemonade and lemon cake are a sweet treat during the Lemon Tour!



A stop in the family’s museum on the tour shows their incredible collection of historic pieces



Pieces of Amalfi’s past, including the stencils that were ones used to mark bread



Taking a peek inside the laboratory where the family’s limoncello is made



So many choices! All made right in the laboratory below the Aceto family lemon groves.
