We waited outside of the hotel for a ride to Amalfi to catch a bus to Salerno

20140530-220556-79556694.jpg
We arrived to the port of Salerno. It seems like a “big” city in comparison to where we have been. A little disappointing but had a nice lunch with the locals. Seafood pastas cheese and of course limoncello at the end of the meal

Caught the bus back to Amalfi and it was packed. We all did not do very well on that ride. It looked as if our faces were covered with flour. Very queasy. We had missed the connecting bus to Furore so we needed the walk. We stopped for a drink on the pier. The hotel was an oasis!!!!!
Tomorrow Capri with lots of Dramamine

Positano

Standard

So the boat. I am so good with motion! Took a gum Dramamine for the 20 minute ride to Positano. None of us got off feeling great but walked around the picturesque town. Lots of shops through little winding streets up and down the village

Then it was off to lunch to Tre Sorelli ristorante

Shaved artichoke with Parmesano Reggianno and lemon. A red snapper with lemon and potatoes for me. Delectable. My mouth waters as I write this. Michelle had a ravioli. Yum

How strange of all places we are directed there
Took the roller coaster back to Amalfi. Crowded but Church of St Andreas beautiful. On way back on last bus to Furore. Tired but elated

Amalfi/Ravello

Standard

We awaited the bus for Ravello in Amalfi. We would return to Amalfi later. A million people awaiting a harrowing ride. I don’t like roller coasters Vi and Michelle got a little motion sickness

Ravello was nothing short of amazing. A word I use infrequently We walked to the gardens of Villa Cimbrone. WOW. Just spectacular.
