Before you start reading here is the song what we heard many many times in the italian radio. It turned out its spanish (lol) but we decided this is the song of our holiday
Feel free to read it while you listening to te song:
Finally this year we went for a week holiday. I’ve been to italy before a few times but i was way younger and
probably could’t appreciate the view and the food as much as i did this time.
After we landed we picked up our hire car. Unfortunately for a misterious reason my satnav was set to avoid
motorways so it led us through Naples. Only recommended to very experienced and confident drivers. No traffic lights,
continuous horn bleeping, mopeds was taking over us from both sides, absolute chaos. Luckily i picked up the pace
quickly and worked out the bleeps mean ‘thank you’ and ‘watch out im coming’ as well.

As we planned we visited Amalfi, Ravello and Positano we also wanted to go to Capri Pompeii and the Vesuv as well but we had to move that for next year.
Everywhere we went it was absolutely breathtaking. The whole coast is a mountain basically and the cities built on the side of them. What can be inconvinient
is the amount of stairs. The parking can be a problem so most of the time we left the car in the hotel and we travelled by bus. The bus stop was exactly 403 stairsteps
away from our road and the closest beach plus 275. One day we went to Amalfi and back to the hotel then the beach. If you add that up thats 2162 steps on stairs. Can be tiring
The food: Because of the lot of sunsine all the vegetables and fruits tase incredible and all the seafood and fish is fresh in the restaurants most likely caught on the day or before
and it’s just tastes amazing. We visited about 5-6 restaurants and the favourite was the Ristorante Le Bontá Del Capo http://www.lebontadelcapo.it/
Private owned restaurant and the owner is there every day and night running the buisness. Very nice person, always talked to us, the headchef comes out of the kitchen
olive oil garlicand hebs and the garnish was parmigiano di melanzane what is layered aubergines tomatoes and mozzarella. It would be fantastic on its own as well.
The dessert on the picture is a local speciality, it takes 2 days to make it. Its cured aubergines some orange with very rich chocolate an scented with concerto. Amazing…
All in all we had a fantastic time, only can recommend the places mentioned above. Good food, nice poeole, lot of sunshine and stunning views who wants more…
We’re considering to start learn italian if once we get old maybe we end up on the Amalfi Coast
Thank you for reading, and i hope i’ll see you there next year
