Then comes breakfast, where you were greeted by Raphael, Antonio and Luigi (and one Canadian waiter that randomly showed up partway through the trip) ready and waiting to get your off-the-menu eggs and bacon. Cause you know, what’s better than BACON in Italy?? Freshly squeezed juices, followed by equally fresh croissants, what more can you ask for? A frothy cappuccino to top it all off.
After a day of overcoming most of the jet-lag, we decided to head to the picturesque village of Ravello up in the mountain. Sitting right near the top are Villa Rufolo and Cimbrone, ancient villas bursting with gardens that you could spend hours strolling through. A place known for its music festivals, at night we headed to a little spot where a 4-string quartet was playing classical music. Truly a magnificent way to spend the evening… oh and they served Limoncello afterwards too, which is pretty awesome!
Once we returned to the hotel, we headed to dinner for more pasta, some seafood, and some of the best desserts you'll ever try. Salivating yet?
Oh and if you enjoy prawns, you HAVE to try lemon encrusted… Truly amazing!
And if you have any questions, please ask them below in the comments section. If you've also been to the Amalfi coast, I'd love to hear what you thought of it and what stories you have!
