Naples

Naples, Naples

Content: We landed in Naples on a hot summer’s day and checked into B&B Museum, an apartment right in the heart of Naples. We were greeted by Marco who took the time to show us around the apartment and explain to us some of the must-visits of Naples itself.

Content: After settling down, we headed to our first destination: the ruins of Pompeii - one of the world’s most rich archaeological experiences. The eruption of Vesuvius buried this city, preserving streets, houses and temples. We only allocated around 2 hours in total there, however we recommend visiting for a much longer time since we definitely did not see everything the site has to offer.

Mount Vesuvius

Pompei, Mount Vesuvius

Content: We then drove for around 40 mins to reach Mt Vesuvius itself. It was also early enough for us to be able to hike all the way up to the crater. We were rewarded with some truly breathtaking views :)

Day 2 - 28 Aug 2021

Amalfi Coast

Province of Salerno, Amalfi Coast

Content: Our plan for the day was to visit the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento. It took us almost two hours to reach our first stop: Positano, however we stopped a few times along the way for some photos. The cities along this coast are all situated on a cliff side, and so it offers for pictoreque photos.

Content: By the time we reached Positano, we were all famished, so we stopped by a nearby cafeteria for some breakfast. We then spent the morning strolling around the streets of Positano, with stops at the Positano beach, Via dei Gladioli, Costiera Amalfitana Positano and the various shops along the street. For those with a more flexible schedule, we recommend renting a boat to get better views of the entire area.

Content: Our first planned stop was the Giardini d’Augusto. The entrance fee to the gardens costs 1 euro per person. You read that right ….. There are several viewpoints at these gardens, however the most beautiful ones are those from which the Faraglioni can be seen. Via Krupp can be admired best from a viewpoint at these gardens.
