    AMALFI COAST GUIDE: WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE?

    Some of you asked me to share my personal “Top things to do in Amafi coast” or if you prefer “What to do and what to see”.  Therefore I decided to collect everything you should do while visiting and a few tips, in one post.     1 – SORRENTO When visiting Amafi coast, one of the “must” stops is Sorrento. Have a nice lunch in of a numerous Italia restaurants. Later on, take a walk through Sorrento’s most crowded shopping street, where you can find basically anything – from cute souvenirs, to clothes, handbags to cosmetics and food. Name it – and you will find it there. In case you decide…

    POSITANO AND AMALFI

    We followed the road that lead us from Sorrento, along Amalfi coast. The road is very scenic, you get to see some amazing cliffs, but it’s pretty difficult to drive as well. Keep in mind that roads are narrow, very winding and there is a lot of traffic going on. You can either curse the road, or you can take it as a part of the adventure and enjoy the ride. After an hour of cliffs and amazing views, we arrived to the most popular town of Amalfi coast – Positano. Positano is a very unique old town, that is situated in a steep coast. Because of the cliffs and it’s…

    BOAT RIDE TO CAPRI ISLAND

    In order to continue my “Amalfi series”, one day we took a boat to Capri and spent the whole day exploring the island. Capri is a small island close to Naples and Amalfi coast and if you ever visit those places – Capri is a MUST! The easiest and the only (therefore not so cheap) way to get there is by boat. No matter where you are staying (Naples, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi)  there are boats departing from every town, their schedule is quite frequent too, so you should not worry about that. The boat ride took us around half an hour. Let me just say one thing about this island: It…

    SORRENTO: “DO AS ITALIANS DO”

    It took half a day for us to  pass over to a completely different state of mind – “Italian state of mind”. You can imagine this was not a hard thing to do when being surrounded by beautiful landscape, amazing food, tasty wine and italian language. We enjoyed every bite of this “italian paradise” and took it slowly. Looking back I am really glad we took enough time for everything we did, there was no rush and no “I want to see too much in one day” attitude. We took our time to eat, to actually enjoy the food, took time to explore the coast and most importantly – took time…

    WELCOME TO AMALFI COAST

    After a long drive we passed by the capital of Italy – Rome and an hour later we finally glanced a huge mountain rising in the distance. We immediately knew it was mount Vesuvius, which is actually a volcano. It felt just as the mountain was welcoming us and telling us that our final destination – Amalfi coast in near. Vesuvius is really majestic and sublime. It is standing proudly, watching over the city of Naples and Amalfi coast. As soon as we left Naples behind and entered the Amalfi peninsula,we actually entered a completely different world. The atmosphere changed from empty endless motorways through hot and barren Italian landscape…
