Here I am, back again. It’s hard to keep up when a full time job requires all your attention, but nevertheless I wanted to share with you our summer 2017 trip in the stunning Amalfi Coast.
We took the opportunity of visiting our dear friends in Naples and decided to visit the world-known Costiera Amalfitana, with another extra day visiting Pompei.
At first we thought of sleeping every night in a different place, to take advantage also of its nightlife, but at the end decided to book 3 nights in the same place in Maiori, a clamping called Cannaverde that we will talk more about in another post. During these days we visited Maiori, Minori, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, we left then to Sorrento where we stayed one night for a day in the city and a day trip to Capri.
It seems a lot for 5 days only, but despite the traffic, every town is very close to the other.
MAIORI AND MINORI
Two small villages along the coast, definitely recommended for their restaurant and especially for cake shop Sal De Riso, try Delizia al Limone, you won’t taste anything better in your whole life!
It’s beautiful cathedral is definitely the main attraction, squeezed between buildings with its black and white façade. Be sure to go also inside, you will be surprised by its stunning cloister and the opulent decorations of the inner church. Wander through its streets and colorful shops and take a walk along its very small beach.
It doesn’t need any presentation, Positano is its own gem, with its pastel houses that climbs over the surrounding hills and seem to take a dive into the Mediterranean. Wander its streets to fully understand its beauty and seat for lunch in one of the restaurants along the beach promenade. It is pricey, but you can indulge in some delicious Caprese once in a lifetime!
Villa Rufolo is definitely the place you want to visit. Have you ever seen that picture with two maritime pines that overlooks the sea? Those have become the symbols of Ravello and I can assure you the view from there is unrivaled.
We didn’t have the time to visit Villa Cimbrone’s gardens, but we heard they also leave you speechless.
Is the city that surprised us the most. Incredibly beautiful and welcoming, we definitely want to go back as we loved it! Best place to visit Capri as the ferries take from 20 to 30 minutes only to reach the island.
I must warn you, it is the apotheosis of Dolce Vita! Extremely pricy but also pleasant. Be sure not to only stay around La Piazzetta but take a stroll along its small streets, especially on the way back to its port. I would recommend more days here as Anacapri and the Roman villas are worth a visit.
