Torre di Clavel is a destination in and of itself. Still, this majestic property offers a variety of interesting day trips within an hour driving distance. You are best served by a hired car and driver in this region, so everyone can enjoy the ever evolving and spectacular scenery. And excursions by private boat or public hydrofoil add to the fun. We can arrange custom self- or expert-guided tours to the area’s famous sites and best-kept secrets. Let us know what you like and we’ll use our insight, knowledge and comprehensive network of contacts to create memorable tours and activities, just for you.
You can enjoy shopping, dining and even a discothèque in Positano. You can also visit Ravello for its elegant villas and the open air concerts in season, as well as Amalfi and Sorrento. The island of Capri - including the renowned Grotta Azzura, the beach club at Fontalina and the fabulous boutique shopping - will fill as many days as you give it.
INTERESTING TOWNS AND CITIES
Pizza, catacombs and a fascinating street life make Naples compelling for all ages. Pompeii is best on a weekday with a guide. Ischia is wild and diverse; from yachts and beautiful people enjoying the spas to rugged farmland on the slopes of a volcano.

You can follow 'The Walk of Gods' along the mountain ridge of Positano above Montepertuso, take a boat along the coasts of Marina del Cantone, Li Galli and Capri, even enjoy sailing on your own private sloop in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Opportunities for skin diving and snorkeling also abound.
Shopping options in the region range from traditional handmade sandals to high-fashion designs; ceramics to house wares. Specialty foods and textiles are abundant and easily taken home. For a special experience, have a professional shopper accompany you on your quest for designer bargains.
The Amalfi Coast is a perfect place for family outings. Rent a private boat - from rubber dinghy to speedboat; with or without skipper - and discover hidden coves along the coastline. Try snorkeling in the Grotta Esmeralda, or visit the beach clubs of Nerrano and Marina del Catone. For excursions further afield, a guided tour of Pompeii followed by lunch at a Neapolitan pizzeria famous for serving pizza by the meter is sure to please everyone.
Torre di Clavel offers a direct descent to a beach, and access by boat. Take advantage of the scenic upper platform with its simple workout equipment, or take the lovely walk along the pebbled Fornillo beach to town.
