Our last day in Italy was spent exploring the absolutely breathtaking Almalfi Coast. Oh my. After just coming from Greece and seeing Santorini and Mykonos it would take a lot to wow us but the Almalfi Coast did all that and more. Wow. We stopped in Sorrento, which was gorgeous, and then ended at Positano, which is my spirit home and very possible the greatest, most beautiful place in the world place in the world.
The gorgeous view approaching Sorrento.
Mt. Vesuvius in the distance
The city of Sorrento! So charming and glamorous.
They sold lemoncello everywhere. Also all sorts of lemon-flavored goodies. There were tons of lemon trees around and everything was so fresh (though Dell’s does come pretty close).
So much fresh fruit and veggies everywhere. America needs to get with the program!
…And finally the beautiful hills surrounding Positano.
As we walked down the adorable streets in Positano we passed an absolutely gorgeous woman and her huge husband. All of us each thought independently how beautiful she was. Then I heard her voice and all of a sudden I was like…. It’s Kristen Cavallari!!! From Laguna Beach!! She was there with Jay Butler, her Chicago Bears Quarterback husband on their honeymoon. They picked the most perfect spot, that’s for sure.
The view from lunch!
After we zoomed around the Almalfi Coast we stopped in Pompeii in the late afternoon for a few hours. We’d already been there once before but we saw all sorts of new and different things this time. It made me realize how massive the whole site really is. Absolutely incredible.
Until next time, Europe! Ciao!
