Good evening Wanderlust-ers! After a whirlwind couple of days on the gorgeous Amalfi Coast, we are now back in our homey apartment in Firenze. It never feels like we’ve had enough time while hangin’ in paradise, but a little R&R proved to be exactly what we needed.
With this trip being quite the quickie, we feel as if we have neglected you all, so here are some highlights from our little vacation from our vacation:
After our enchanting evening in Ravello and a lovely dinner alfresco at our villa, it was off to bed to rest up for another fabulous day. The next morning it was time for two things to be smooth and dark: our coffee and our skin. After a few shots of espresso to prepare us for our assent up the hill (#kilimanjaroPTSD) we drove into Amalfi for our day in the sun. We scouted out the perfect beach club and spent the day lounging!
After catching some Z’s under the ray’s, it was back home for a quick shower followed by a costal drive to Sorrento to pick up our lovely friend Claire who is studying abroad in Rome for the summer! We spent a few hours walking around the town and grabbing a quick vino. Okay… a few hours of vino and a quick walk around town. We grabbed Claire from the train station and drove back to Amalfi for a light dinner.
JULY 7TH: NATIONAL KARPE DIEM MOMMA DAY!!!! We woke up to celebrate our fabulous mommy’s birthday! The morning was spent having breakfast on our lanai and then heading down to the harbor to board our private charter for the day.
We spent the whole day luxuriating in the sun, swimming in the Mediterranean, and touring the island of Capri and the Amalfi coast from the water. Our captain Francesco and first mate Aldo (or as we called him, our resident cutie pie) showered our mommy with lots of vino and great times on board (shoutout to Premium Charter Italia for the boujiest of days). Three swim stops, one of which was in the coveted blue gratto, and one amazing lunch in the small town of Nerano (only accessible by boat) later we sunset cruised back to the harbor of Amalfi.
Later that evening, we went down to the Amalfi Piazza for a quick dinner, when we stumbled upon a candlelit concert. We indulged in fabulous food and sat outside listening to the lovely melodies of a local artist set against the backdrop of a 16th century church. It was the perfect ending to a festive day.
As always thank you for following us as we Kapre Diem…
