Europe6 days / October 2021
Highs & Lows
Path of the Gods Hike
The altitude of the towns ! Lots of steps
Best to fly to Naples - its the closest airport and you have many options to continue travelling to the south, such as buses trains and ferrys.
We spent two nights in Naples and then got a ferry to the Island of Capri.
We spent two nights on the Island of Capri
From here you can get a Ferry then to Positano (flag ship town)and other costal towns like Almafi and Salerno.
And you are also in a great position to see the archaeological wonder that is Pompeii
Q & A
What would you have changed?
The number of nights spent in Positano - would have stayed one less night
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Our airport taxi dropped us to the train station instead of the airport and then took off before we realised the mistake he had made - he came back but it left no time to relax at the airport
How was the food?
Its Italy - you will have no issues ! :P But make sure you like pasta and bread. The food is always fresh and flavourful - my personal favourite restaurant is below : https://www.tripadvisor.it/Restaurant_Review-g194873-d1034534-Reviews-Trattoria_Da_Cumpa_Cosimo-Ravello_Amalfi_Coast_Province_of_Salerno_Campania.html
What tips would you give a friend?
Be careful of the accomdation you book, check the exact location and make sure you are ok with steps.
Use packing cubes - these will save you from tearing apart your luggage when you only want a pair of socks. and again leave some room for gifts and souvenir clothes.
Pack light ! - do not pack to 100% capacity and leave room for gifts and souvenirs
The number of steps in Positano
Did not use a travel agency - this part of Italy you can book with independent operators. Ryan air to fly - booking.com for accommodation.
