Itinerary Overview

Since my boyfriend was doing an Erasmus in Naples we decided to visit my old home town Rome, then exploring Naples and the incredibly beautiful Amalfi coast. In Naples a friend also came to visit. All three of us fell in love with the city for life.

  • 4 Nights: Rome
    To visit my old home town again and show its beauty and my favorite spots to my boyfriend
  • 6 Nights: Naples
    Visiting my boyfriend and getting to know the most chaotic beauty of Naples
  • 2 Nights: Amalfi Coast
    Beautiful small cities and one of the most amazing landscapes ever

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have liked to experience more of Rome's nighlife, but didn't stay over the weekend

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Go to as many centri sociali in Naples as you can. And eat as much as you can, the food is amazing!

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you decide to take public transport in Naples or Rome be veery patient. The bus will arrive when it feels like it. But it's worth the experience and kind of nice to get out of the European mindset of always having to get to the next place as quickly as possible

Lodging

  • We stayed in an Airbnb on the other side of the Tiber from Trastevere. It was really central and since I love Trastevere the perfect spot.

  • I stayed at the Tric Trac hostel for a couple of nights which is very central and nice. Since my boyfriend was also staying in Naples and I visited with a friend I didn't spend much time at the hostel though

  • We stayed at my boyfriends uncle, so can't recommend anything here. But I am sure there are endless places in the small cities along the coast
