|The scenery only gets better from here.|
|Pompeii is so big, it doesn't appear crowded even |
during peak season. Except if following the
people wearing audio headsets.
|Block after block of city streets, and few signs |
explaining what you see.
|Our guide's visual aids helped bring the ruins to life.|
|How could we not order pizza??|
|Yes four glasses, drinking age limits are loose.|
Kids weren't interested so mom & dad got two each!
|Beautiful ceramics in Sorrento|
|One of the few flat areas in Positano|
|After many stairs, we reached the Positano beach|
Afterwards we hopped back in the car and enjoyed the stunning scenery while Gianluca dealt with the jam-packed streets, tour buses backing up to negotiate hairpin turns, and motorbikes and pedestrians who seemed to appear out of nowhere. (I glanced back to see my son grinning ear to ear with his phone held up to the window recording it all.)
|Gianluca didn't slow down!|
|Until we got here|
So no matter how experienced a traveler you are, here is my advice if you are considering exploring the Amalfi Coast on your own: Don't do it! Whether you arrive by train, plane, or cruise ship, it pays to hire a local expert so you can have a fun and stress-free experience. And whether you have 4 hours or 4 days, I can work with my local experts to plan a great itinerary maximizing your time in this beautiful area.
|Aaaah-malfi, I can't wait to see you again.|
