The Amalfi Coast: Sorrento and Capri
Whether it was my lack of research or the shadow of Positano hiding this gem from online recognition - Sorrento was a must-see that had us wishing we had just booked one more night there! And whoever said Naples has the best pizza, clearly did not drive the extra thirty miles. Their pizza and chili spiced olive oil (why haven’t we thought of this), will make you salivate while blogging about it two weeks later…embarrassing for me or impressive for them? I’m not sure if it’s the crowded cobblestone alleys filled with restaurants and shops or the rooftop terraces with views of the grande marina and the slightest breeze, but this town is the perfect combination of crazy and cozy.
I looked forward to this day for over six months. We planned a private boat tour around the island of Capri, and it was the best decision we ever made (well…not ever made, getting married was a pretty good one too). We sipped homemade limoncello, went swimming in caves, and circled the entire island. It was such an amazing, surreal experience. It’s one of those times I still can’t believe that it actually happened.
After spending the first part of our day living like P-Diddy, it was back to reality…and stairs (lots of them!). If you think Rocky was impressive, you should have seen us in Capri. It just so happened that everything we wanted to see was either at the top of a mountain or on the other side of the island, so naturally we did both (When in
Rome Capri!). Don’t get me wrong, we stopped more than once gasping for air as eighty-year old Italian locals passed us, but we made it!
After an adventurous day of private boats, doing a 10k up stairs, and getting on the wrong ferry…we were finally back in Sorrento. We spent the rest of our time doing what we do best…enjoying the view and trying the food. Like all nights should end, our last night in Sorrento ended with a Kinder and Nutella gelato cone.
