After Rome, Lori and I headed to Naples. We were unsure of what to expect, we really only booked it in order to take a trip to Pompeii. It ended up possibly being one of my favorite stops on the trip, if not my favorite.
Our Airbnb host was named Ester, who had the most incredible flat, with a balcony. I almost died when I opened the door and saw Mount Vesuvius from our room. Ester didn’t speak English very well, but was happy to help with recommendations for what to do. She even made a lemon cake for us to have with tea for breakfast!
Our first full day, Lori and I booked a last-minute tour down to the Amalfi Coast. This, hands-down, was the best decision we made on the entire trip. We managed to get a small, private tour, with just two other couples and their babies. We made multiple stops, with main stays in the towns of Positano and Amalfi. Words cannot describe how breathtaking the views were.
The final day we went to Pompeii, again on a tour. It was so cool to walk through the ruins of this ancient city, with Mt. Vesuvius ominously in the background. There was also a modern art gallery scattered throughout the site, which juxtaposed the ruins coolly.
This portion of the trip is something I will always remember for the sights alone. Naples and our detour to the Amalfi coast was the most beautiful place I have ever been in my life, and I hope to make a return trip again some day.
Thanks for keeping up; stay tuned for my final post from my spring break trip coming up next!
