Italy, Day 4: Amalfi Coast (Part 2)

In Amalfi, our last stop for the tour, we had a closer view of everything the sea and houses near the shore. But before going near the sea, we went first to Amalfi Cathedral, which is dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle. His relics were said to be kept here.

In AMALFI, our last stop for the tour, we had a closer view of everything the sea and houses near the shore. But before going near the sea, we went first to AMALFI CATHEDRAL, which is dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle. His relics were said to be kept here.

Afterwards, we went to the sea shore where it was very windy. The weather was good so people were either sunbathing or taking pictures with the sea as the backdrop.

We were back in Naples before 5PM so we decided to eat early dinner at L’ANTICA PIZZERIA DA MICHELE. The place gained worldwide fame when it was featured in “Eat, Pray, Love”. We were lucky that there was no long line when we got there so we were seated inside in less than 30 minutes. We ordered 1 regular margherita pizza and 1 double mozzarella margherita pizza. The latter was the better option because it was cheesier.

That’s it for our Naples adventure!

Italy, Day 4: Amalfi Coast (Part 1)

We availed the “Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi Tour” from Viator, which costs around €80+ per person. Our first destination was Sorrento, which is the home of limoncello.

We availed the “Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi Tour” from Viator, which costs around €80+ per person. Our first destination was Sorrento, which is the home of limoncello. We first visited SORRENTAGRI which sold limoncello in various alcohol volume %. I was not a fan of both 20% and 32% but then again I don’t drink alcohol.

After buying small bottles of limoncello and cooking aids, we headed to the city center of SORRENTO and we were given free time to explore the city on our own.

My sister and I went to the famous DAVIDE IL GELATO and I got a 2-flavor cup: limone (lemon) and nocciola (hazelnut). Good thing I got the nocciola to neutralize the sourness from the limone.

We walked around some more before going back to the parking lot to reconvene with the rest of the group…

Second stop was POSITANO where we had a great view of the ocean and houses built in the cliffside village.

We had our lunch at RISTORANTE LA CALAJANARA where we had a simple 3-course lunch, part of the tour package. My sister and I were seated with a fellow tourist from Sweden, and we exchanged lots of stories about traveling and our home countries.

Last stop of the tour will be continued in the next post. 😊
