Today we got up really early at 7, got ready, grabbed a pastry from the breakfast bar and headed out to go on a tour.
The tour meeting place was in the central square of Sorrento. The best place to get there from our hotel is bus apparently but I find buses can be difficult to understand in an area you're not familiar with (plus yesterday showed we're not lucky with buses) so we thought we'd try the train. Our local station goes to the main station of Sorrento every half hour, it costs 1 euro and the journey time is 1 minute haha. Luckily for us as well we discovered the station is literally a 2 minute walk from our hotel so we arrived with enough time to grab an energy drink and a doughnut from the station whilst we waited.
The tour pickup point was easy to find and the coach arrived on time too. We boarded the bus and made our way to our first stop, Positano. The bus stopped for 20 minutes for us to get some pictures from its position overlooking the bay and pictures of the quaint town itself.
We then had another half hour stop further along the Amalfi road at a large ceramics place where we could use the toilet, grab a drink and overlook the sea. The weather has been 28 degrees today, nice but not hot enough to bother our sunburn.
We then went to the town of Amalfi and this time we had a stop of 2.5 hours. It allowed us to have a look around the lovely town, I picked up another little gift for nanny Anne's birthday. We also had lunch here. We both went for a pizza and afterwards both agreed it was the best pizza we'd had the whole time we've been here. Adam went for one with bacon, onions and peppers and I went for one with bacon, mozzarella and an egg. The wine was also lovely and cheap :) the photo attached to the blog is taken from the harbour of Amalfi.
We then had a short stop at the town of Atrani and then continued to the town of Ravello where we had an hour of free time. It was a bit overcast in Ravello but there was some beautiful mountain sights and lots of cute shops, mostly selling jewellery. I'm determined to come back one day and buy myself a beautiful cameo ring.
We then made the way back, which took about an hour. The tour guide handed out little peppers to each of us, they represent good luck. We picked up some glass ones in Naples for our Christmas tree and now we have some plastic ones to add too!
The coach kindly dropped us off right next to our hotel. We walked back and decided to have dinner at the hotel as its cheap, quick and easy. We've had a few early get ups so we're quite tired. I had caprese salad with a side of fries and Adam had arrancini balls. Everything was yummy and we washed it down with beer and wine.
Now back to get packed as tomorrow is our last day!!
