Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Windsurf in Amalfi above

 

Yesterday I took a nice walk down to Amalfi to go to the beach. (Note to Self: wait until it gets cooler to do that again!) Taking the steps down to Amalfi is one of my favorite walks to do along the Amalfi Coast. There is a moment when you come around a corner and are greeted by this wonderful panorama of the city of Amalfi from above. Surrounded by terraced lemon groves and only the sound of wind blowing through the valley and  perhaps the tinkling of sheep bells in the distance, it is truly a beautiful way to see Amalfi. Yesterday there was an added treat in the form of the Wind Surf cruise ship, a beautiful five masted ship that stops occasionally in Amalfi.

Part of the Windstar cruise line, I have always thought if I could take a dream cruise it would be on one of these ships. They are so beautiful, especially when they come into port with the sails up. What an amazing way to tour the  Mediterranean!

    I really must take some time to look around the Amalfi coast when I'm next in Italy. Your pictures and blog make it look so inviting.
