Welcome to


Italy: Amalfi Coast

We made the most of the recent long weekend and got out of London for a bit. We stayed in Naples the first night, but quickly moved on, crazy Italian drivers spurring me on! 🙂 to Sorrento.

From Sorrento we could explore Pompeii (Vesuvius was closed because of the weather on the day much to the relief of some not so eager for the hike up the mountain!) and the Isle of Capri.

A must see stop on the round trip of Capri is the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto). The water and light is just amazing! And our Italian oarsman serrenading the girls didn’t go a stray either (they don’t all look so grumpy)!

We then moved on to Positano for the remainder of our stay and it’s true what the guide books say – it is the most photographed of the villages and picture postcard perfect. Oh and yes, where other towns have streets Positano has stairs! And lots of them! No kidding..

From Positano we also explored Amalfi and the mountain villages of Ravello and Montepertuso – this stretch of the coast has the most amazing views of the Med.

The food is fanastic (best pizza ever in Ravello!) and each little village has something special and unique to offer.

Plenty cereamics and Lemoncello too..

I loved the trip! A big thanks to my Piggie-Back Piggie-Back, Chop-Suey and Moana-Lisa for the excellent company! Next adventure coming soon..

    Thanks Delmaine! We had a wonderful time on the Amalfi Coast, it’s so pretty. Check back here in a week or two’s time – we’ve just gotten back from another trip to Italy, this time a ‘gruelling’ trip to Pisa, Florence, Lucca and the Cinque Terre 🙂
