Italy Series: Daytrip to Amalfi Coast

This is the last day in Italy and I wanted to squeeze in one last destination that we can do as a daytrip from Rome.  My first choice was actually Pompeii (based on the fact that that was the only place I knew), but my well traveled colleagues directed me to check out Amalfi Coast instead.

IMG_5335.jpgBecause of the long distance that needs to be covered, you can’t tour this place on just public transportation (especially as a daytrip).  Either you rent a car and drive, or if like us you can’t drive, book a daytrip tour. I highly recommend this private tour we got from Viator which is the most affordable option we could find for a private driver.   We just had to take the train to get to Naples, and we were picked up and dropped off from there at the end of the daytrip. The nice thing as well is that we didn’t have to stress out figuring how to get from one spot to another, and we could control how long or how short we would stay in each spot. Some of the highlights of our daytrip.. First stop.. town of Sorrento IMG_5378.jpgIMG_5355.jpgIMG_5362.jpgMore beautiful coastal views on the way to Positano Continue reading
