This past weekend was our long weekend break so a couple of friends and I decided to go on a tour of the Amafli coast!
It started on Thursday night after a long day of walking and looking at more amazing art in Rome. At 7 pm, we had just finished class and we were headed to the train station. The tour picked us up from the train station at 8 pm and took us to Sorrento, where our hotel was.
The next day we woke up quite early to head to Capri, a beautiful island nearby. We got to take a boat tour around the island, swim in the Blue Grotto, drink delicious lemon slushies and enjoy the amazing views of the island. A few friends and I also picked up some amazing lemon chocolates!
The next day we went to Positano and spent the day relaxing on the beach along with doing some adventurous cave swimming and cliff jumping! We had some really good pizza and more gelato. As well I found some great leather sandals. That night we watched some of the Italian World Cup game.
Our last day of the weekend was spent in Pompeii. It was really interesting to see how big the city actually was and how well it was preserved. It also had some very interesting art and sculpture. After Pompeii, we were dropped off in Rome. We then took a train back to sweet home, Santa Chiara. We had so much fun this past week in Rome and this weekend in Amalfi but we are glad to be back home safe and sound in Castiglion Forientino!
