MarMeeting Mediterranean Cup
Just passed the town of Praiano is Furore, where once a year in July a world-class diving event takes place. A small bridge overlooking a tiny beach inlet serves as the backdrop for what's considered a very dangerous competition. Diving competitors gather from all over the world, and their dives are executed from a small platform on the bridge hanging at 28 meters above the sea. The space between the vertical mountains anchoring the bridge is very narrow, creating an even more narrow water window below in which to safely dive.
Tourists and locals gather on the sliver of Furore's beach holding their breaths as they gaze above at the participants. And boats anchor in the sea just opposite the bridge to view what is one of the most exciting sports scenes to witness. Visit the event's official website for this year's MarMeeting date.
