Last two Days of our Fabulous Holiday – 19th and 20th July 2018 and we’re going to visit the Amalfi Coast
We had a really relaxing day by the pool at our beautiful Casale Giancesare – drank water all day – well, until we had wine in the evening – as we really haven’t been drinking enough! We’ve not had many days where we’ve done absolutely nothing so we really enjoyed just chilling out – we did go out in the evening to a restaurant I found on Trip Advisor called Nonna Sceppa – the meal was ok but not the best we’ve had. One of the highlights of today was sitting on the verandah at Casale Giancesare having a Limoncello and watching the sunset – we absolutely love it here – Antonino, Enzo and Jonny are the best and will all do anything to help you – we’ve sat and had some lovely chats with them and they really make you feel at home.

We were telling Enzo that we were going to drive along the Amalfi Coast the next day and he recommended that we go on a boat trip to see it as it is so crowded and hard to park – however we decided to drive in the end – but on hindsight we felt we should have taken his advice – Paul was fine driving but it was crazily busy on the roads – if you’re not a confident driver I wouldn’t recommended it – it’s very twisty – coaches get stuck as the roads are so narrow, there’s not many places to stop if you’re in a car and it’s absolutely horrendous trying to park in any of the towns – and it costs three times as much as where we were staying on the Cilento Coast.
However, it is absolutely beautiful, breath taking and spectacular.
Driving along the Amalfi Coast
We couldn’t find a space in Amalfi but did eventually manage to find a space in Positano
Found a restaurant with the most beautiful view – also extremely expensive!! Everything is about 3 times more expensive that where we are staying on the Cilento Coast – and I must say that even though the Amalfi Coast is so beautiful, I do prefer where we are staying – it’s so much quieter and far less touristy – and of course we have the massive Parco Nazionale del Cilento and lots of very beautiful little villages.
We then carried on to Maiori where we had a walk around this beautiful village and then sat in a bar happily watching the world go by – perfect end to a lovely day – although I do kinda wish we had done the boat trip!!
So – I’ve come to the end of my blog posts about Italy – it really was the most amazing holiday and we have loved every minute – we need to come back though to see so many places that we didn’t have time for on this holiday.
Thanks so much to you all who have read and liked my posts.
