The Furore is a very scenic route that leads from Agerola to the famous fjord. This is a narrow and picturesque valley carved by the river during Schiato. The tour follows the ancient stairways from the mountains down to the sea. At one time these were the only roads linking the villages of the coast.

It takes away Miramare and joints near the Leonardos restaurant start off on the adjacent steps to this indicated with the red and white signs of the CAI. Continue downhill to a junction on the right which always leads to the stairs to the village of Tovere (fraction of Amalfi). Going through the village until you get on the highway 366 that leads from Agerola to Amalfi.
