Amalfi Coast

28th May 2015
Early start for the Amalfi Coast tour.  Left Rome and stopped at Naples,  which wasn't that impressive,  then travelled to Pompeii.  It was a much larger site than we expected and very interesting.  We then travelled to Sorrento,  had dinner at the very nice hotel and then walked into explore the town. The walk was a challenge,  small roads with no footpaths.  Managed to catch the sunset on the way.

We toured the Isle of Capri today,  our tour guide was very good and kept us in front of the 3 passenger ships that had turned up that morning!  We first went to the Blue Grotto,  a cave accessed by row boat and the water is illuminated by the sunlight, very beautiful and would've liked more time in there!  We then toured the rest of the island,  caught the chairlift to the top walked the village and gardens. Finished the day with dinner in Sorrento.

Left Sorrento and travelled by bus to Amalfi.  What an experience,  not only was the scenery great the roads were so narrow that every time a car or bus came the other way they would miss each other by millimeters! Our hotel is high on the hill with amazing views.  We caught the shuttle to town, walked around Amalfi,  walked to Atrani and back then caught the ferry to Positano.

Today we walked from Amalfi to a small village in the hills called Ravello. A very beautiful village with a couple of famous gardens, we visited Villa Rufolo garden which dates back to the 13th century. They have musical concerts there over summer with the sea as a backdrop. Caught the local bus back to Amalfi which was an experience, then took the bus to Maiori for a look.
