At the San Pietro
Guided gardens visit
The gardens are one of the most interesting aspects of the San Pietro’s geography, not only for their layered terraces that are typical to the Amalfi Coast, but for their large production of organic produce that is used daily in our restaurants and bars, and the flowers used to decorate the halls and rooms. The Maitre’d will accompany you through the gardens along a scenic path that gradually descends to the sea, while describing the production and harvesting of seasonal vegetables interspersed with colourful anecdotes and curiosities. Please request this complimentary tour at Reception.
With a cellar of over 600 labels, wine is an important part of the San Pietro’s culture. From a theoretical introduction, to combinations, pairing and tasting, our sommeliers will guide you through a private wine tasting in the quiet setting of the Zass Restaurant. Aimed at experiencing the excellence and uniqueness of popular wine territories, our sommeliers offer a choice of 3 regional itineraries (Piedmont, Tuscany and Campania), or a personalized itinerary upon request. Please inquire at Reception for reservation and prices.

Learning to speak Italian in under an hour is possible at the San Pietro. In a simple and intuitive 4-lesson mini-course designed especially for our guests, you will learn how to introduce yourself, greet people correctly, order a drink at the bar, or ask for the time.
