We spent our first afternoon walking around Sorrento, visiting a local lemon grove, and taking in the views.

The following day we headed to Capri. Rather than take the ferry over, we spent a little more to go on a private boat that took us all around the island. I highly recommend this option for those of you that love a good view.

When we arrived on the island we headed straight for Anacapri so we could take the chair left up to the top of Mt. Solaro for more beautiful views.
We took the island's bus system around. The streets were so narrow the buses barely squeaked by each other. The photo below is taken from the bus we were on, while passing another bus.

That was probably an overload of boat and harbor pictures, but they're just so good! We can't wait to frame a few.
|Look at that water! The most blue and clear water I've ever seen.|
I mean - have you seen more beautiful water?! It was so clear, even when we were miles off the coast.
The next day we rented a scooter and headed down the Amalfi Coast. We really went back and forth on whether we should attempt the ride. The roads are very windy and narrow, and many folks warned us against it. Adrian is a very experienced driver though, and we decided to go for it. It was our favorite day of vacation, by far! The roads were much better than I had expected, and I never felt nervous or unsafe. It was such a fun way to enjoy the coast and take in the views.
We rode straight to Ravello and then stopped and spent time in Ravello, Amalfi, and Positano on the ride back.
The next several pictures were taken from the hill town of Ravello.

And then we made it back down to Amalfi.
And finally off to Positano.
My favorite town along the coast was Positano, I also loved Ravello. Amalfi was beautiful but much more crowded. This was such an amazing part of our trip that I'll never forget. The next morning we were off to Rome for the last leg of our vacation.
