- LGBT Friendly

Explore the Blue Grotto on the Isle of Capri with your partner and other gay and lesbian travelers. Walk the ruins of Pompeii and taste the freshest, top quality olive oil and mozzarella cheese, while taking hands-on cooking classes on authentic Neapolitan cuisine — all this and more awaits you on the la Costiera Amalfitana, one of Italy’s top gay vacation destinations.
The Amalfi Coast: A Mediterranean Cooking Experience for LGBT Couples brings you, your partner, and other gay and lesbian travelers to Sant’ Agata sui due Golfi, a cozy Italian village situated between Naples and Salerno. The rocky cliffs, sun-kissed land, and picturesque vistas provide an LGBT travel experience like no other. Wine is fermented from grapes that grow on centuries old vines. The cuisine is refined and diverse, having been influenced by Arab, Spanish, and French rule over the years. And of course, it is the birthplace of the infamous Neapolitan-style pizza: a thin, blackened crust topped with a garden-fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil – mmm, gustoso!
You will receive your hands-on culinary training with Chef Fabrizio. With him, you will learn southern-Italian classics, like gnocchi alla Sorentina (hand-rolled potato pasta, homemade tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese), carciofi ripienni (Neapolitan-style stuffed artichokes) and true Neapolitan-style pizza. When you’re not in the kitchen, a tour guide will take you to a local farm that has been making fresh olive oil and mozzarella cheese for over 60 years. You’ll also visit the Isle of Capri, explore the cobblestone streets of Amalfi, and taste wine at a winery at the base of Mount Vesuvius, among other excursions.
At the winery — or in one of the local wine bars you discover during this gay culinary adventure — imbibe wines made from native grapes such as Falanghina, Greco and Aglianico. Pallagrello is one of the few grapes in the world that produces both a red and a white; pair a glass of Pallagrello bianco (the white wine version) with mozzarella di bufala or a glass of Pallegrello nero (the red wine version) with a braised pork shoulder served with chestnuts and olives.
Your accommodation will be in a lovely four-star relais hotel of only six rooms and five suites, situated on one of the hills of Sant’ Agata sui due Golfi. The villa was originally built in 1892 for a German aristocrat and has since been painstakingly restored and modernized, featuring a 15-meter swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, tennis court, wine bar, exercise room and more.
