Furore, locally called Neverland, with its scattered settlement on the flanks of the mountain overlooking the sea, is a small village risen on the steep cliffs of the Fiord and is poorly inhabited. Furore is a characteristic town with roads that are a bit difficult to access. You will find paths, tracks and stairs which are not even visible from the Coastline’s road. Furore can be split in two sides: The seaside with the fjord (il Fiordo di Furore), a naturalistic beauty that will impress you and the city center with scattered houses on the coast. The old village lies on the foothills of the Monti Lattari. The landscape has a rugged dolomitic beauty, and from here the sea can be reached walking down the many steps built in the days of the Maritime Republic.
Il borgo dei pescatori (The fishermen’s borough) is a cluster of houses on the lowest part of the cliff. The Borgo can be reached by taking some steps and small stone roads. The Borgo is almost intact as it was originally built, however the difficulty to reach it means it has not undergone any substantial changes over the years, in fact the latest refurbishment carefully respected the original design of the houses. Rossellini and Anna Magnani came to live here around 1948 and filmed a few scenes of L’Amore. The memory of their stay here is so dear to the locals that they have set up a small museum about the couple in the house they used to live. The Fiord of Furore is surely the most impressive thing about the village, indeed this cut into the mountains runs all the way down from the town of Agerola. The erosion of water onto the mountain has now created an impressive and stunning landscape that is very green and fertile yet on a very harsh rocky ground, with unexpected waterfalls and streams that from the mountain run down to the sea. The Fiord has an overhanging arched bridge on which the State road 163 runs and where the International Diving Championship is held every year. Furore is a very suggestive destination and it deserves to be visited. Furore, the Neverland of the Amalfi Coast.
