On Thursday the rain stopped and we woke up to a beautiful, sunny morning on the Amalfi Coast. The perfect day to be out enjoying the good weather! After traffic delays due to road work and work cleaning the rocks on the mountains, we missed the boat to Capri from Sorrento. So instead we walked around Sorrento, and then took a beautiful drive from Sorrento through Massa Lubrense to the very tip of the Amalfi Coast. From there we drove up through Termini, Nerano, and up to Sant’Agata sui due Golfi, where there is an incredible view of the Bay of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno from one point. Along the way we had incredible views of Capri. The one above was taken not far from Massa Lubrense, and you can see how close Capri is from the tip of the Amalfi Coast. (It is about a half hour boat ride from Sorrento.) I have many photos of the cities we drove through and scenic points we stopped at, and I will be posting some of those in this coming week. Unfortunately, the cold and rainy weather is coming back this week. In the meantime, Thursday was a beautiful reminder of the good weather that will be coming soon!
We we arrived in Sorrento I noticed Vesuvius had just a little bit of snow at the top. This was taken from the Marina Piccola in Sorrento. The tops of the highest of the Lattari Mountains along the Amalfi Coast also have some snow now.
