What you'll do

Since three generations, my family owns the only Limoncello liqueur factory in the heart of Amalfi.

In the first part of the experience, I will explain and show you how to make the real Limoncello and other Amalfi coast liqueurs available in different periods of the year.
You will also taste other specialities such as the babà cake with limoncello or lemon cream and dark chocolate limoncello pralines.
You will know the important difference between an industrial limoncello liqueur and a fresh homemade one!

I will also tell you a few tips about liqueurs and how to make them, for your future homemade experiences.

After my degree I decided to continue the tradition of my family: the Limoncello production. When I was a kid, I used to observe my grandparents making Limoncello at home, with basic tools and now I continue to work in their factory.
Having the only Limoncello factory in town, I have the possibility to show how the authentic limoncello is made, following the ancient recipe that my family has transmitted to me.

My husband is a huge fan of limoncello, and learning from Vittorio the basics of the process and his family history while trying it out ourselves, was a really fun experience. We’re dreaming of a lemon farm in the future now, but nothing could compare to those amazing Amalfi lemons!! Also so interesting to see what other cellos he makes aside from just lemons!

Our group of nine (I convinced him to take 9 of us) were warmly welcomed by Vittorio, his parents, and his lovely bride-to-be. He was entertaining, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and an absolute gem of a young man. We could tell he was extremely proud of his family and their Limoncello business. We were active participants in the process and we learned so much about the history of Amalfi Limoncello, his family, and the Amalfi Coast. We all highly recommend the Limoncello Experience. It was the highlight of our trip. If you have the opportunity to go to Amalfi, do the Experience or at least visit his family’s business to the right of the Duomo di Amalfi.

This was our first Airbnb experience, and Vittorio has set the bar incredibly high! We had a truly amazing time - definitely a highlight of the entire trip. It was wonderful to find out more about the history of limoncello, how limoncello is made, and all that goes into Vittorio's being so good. We got to taste a whole variety of the liquors made, and helped to make our own batch of limoncello. Vittorio is engaging, incredibly knowledgeable, and very passionate about his work, and this all adds to the experience. If you're in the Amalfi area, this is an absolute must.

I’ve done over 50 airbnb experiences, and this one tops them all. Not only were the Limoncellos (and meloncellos, strawberrycellos, fennelcellos, and countless other flavors) truly amazing, but the host was one of a kind. We learned the history and the most key aspects of limoncello production from the most authentic place in Amalfi. The host was extremely generous and kind. His passion for the craft was truly outstanding! I’d rate this experience a 15/10 and would do it again in a heartbeat! Thanks so much!!!!
