Naples to the Amalfi Coast

Before I start talking about today I want to mention one thing I forgot to mention yesterday. Museums in Italy are not air conditioned. Both the Vatican Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Naples were not air conditioned. I know that’s a small sample size but that’s my conclusion so far.

This morning we checked out of our hotel and walked to the train station where we picked up our rental car.

We made our way out of Naples and drove to Sorento, the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. In Sorento we parked and walked out to an overlook to enjoy a the view.


From Sorento we drove down the narrow winding road along the Amalfi Coast.

We are staying about 2000 feet above the Mediterranean. It’s called Villa Paradise Resort. The small B and B really is an idyllic spot. We played cards on the deck outside our room.

I guess some of you may be wondering…. Duke has won every game so far! He’s very lucky!

For dinner we walked to a nearby restaurant, La Selva.

We had by far the best meal we have had so far. Duke and I started with fresh anchovies, parsley and olive oil.

They brought Jo Ann gluten free crackers and olives.

Duke and I each had sea breen which is like sea bass. It was moist and very tasty.

After dinner we walked back up to our hotel. Look at the view from the terrace! By the way, the weather was lovely today. It was raining and warm when we left Naples, but on the Amalfi Coast the temperature is about 80 and there is a cool breeze. Perfect!
