Amalfi Easter 2010

What a wonderful place to stay and explore! Highly recommended! Our room overlooked the harbour, we were spoilt for restaurants, the walking was great, the sun shone (and we swam, but no one told me the med was like the West Coast of Scotland at Easter!) and we made new friends! I have cut down the no of photos by 75%!! Amalfi itself is riddled with tunnels and passageways in lieu of streets between layers of ancient buildings, which keep an army of builders at work! We found where Ruths Great Aunt did her sketch (at the cost of the most expensive cappuchino ever!) and Ruth sketched! We did some lovely, if vertical walks, and enjoyed 'the walk of the Gods' which was mainly downhill if you start in Bomerano! Ah time was short......but we did better than the trip Exodus so impolitely cancelled!

We used the 'Sunflower Landscapes' book: Sorrento-Amalfi-Capri (car tours and walks) < http://www.sunflowerbooks.co.uk/sorrento.htm which is very good, once you get used to the layout altho there is a small scale map of the area included. It helped getting pretty good maps from the tourist office (we went into the one in Atrani) and getting 'Amalfi Coast - map of the paths' there are several of these see < http://www.carteguide.com/sentieri.html#sentieri shows you exactly what maps to get.

We didn't book the Rome-Naples train and had to queue in Rome for tickets on the Friciarrossa - which was good but we went first class (10 more)- maybe more roomy than a UK pendolino second class, not up to UK first class standard.
We took the bus from Sorrento to Amalfi, on Easter Monday - talk about sardines! We left Amalfi by boat to Salerno and then Friciarrossa to Rome (via Naples) which you need to book, there's a travel agent in Amalfi where we did this booking < http://www.touringpoint.it/menueng.htm (Google maps searh for Vico dei Pastai, 9 | 84011 AMALFI) Naples to the archeological sites and Sorrento is via the rather run down Circumvesuviana train service < http://www.vesuviana.it/web/en/homepage who have saved on paint by getting graffiti artists to do the job, but hey we were on holiday so who cares. I did care - very much - when my wallet disappeared, probably at Pompeii or possibly on the Circumvesuviana train. Be very careful! I wasted half a day in the Naples Police station - very helpful, but basically bad luck 'its been stolen'.
