Last Day in Positano by Mark Nunneley

We let the girls sleep in late today but headed down to grab some lunch around 11:30.   We ate at an awesome new place by name of Casa e Bottega.  It is run by these 4 ladies and they use all organic items in their food prep.    Great place to snag a lunch.   

Afterwards the girls went to the beach and Mark and Kati got a massage at Le Sirenuse.

Up and down the coast...continued by Mark Nunneley

From San Pietro we drove South through Praiano to Amalfi where we stopped and walked around the Piazza where we snacked and grabbed a wonderful Italian Lemon Slush.   From Amalfi we continued our drive South to Ravello which is town of 2,500 people and is around 1,200 feet straight up from the coast.   We had an amazing lunch at Hotel Caruso.  I have officially determined that Italy has the world's best Club Sandwiches.    We had what was the best Club Sandwich that I had ever had to date while on Capri.    NOW my favorite is at Hotel Caruso.    This is an amazing Club.

Damn we look good

Girls tired ..time to head back to Positano

Up and down the Coast by Mark Nunneley

We got up this morning and went up and down the coast south from Positano with Salvadore from Simply Amalfi.   Salvador was great.   He is 26 and the  nephew of the owner of the company.   From our hotel in Positano and traveling South we stopped at San Pietro which is a 5 star hotel just outside Positano to take some pics from the Balcony

1st Day in Positano by Mark Nunneley

We got up this morning and took an 8:55am Ferry from Capri to Sorrento and our friends from "SimplyAmalfi" picked us up and drove us to Positano.   The last time we were here Kati and I stayed at the absolutely awesome Le Sirenuse which is one of the best if not the best hotel I have ever stayed.   This time we decided to stay at the Eden Roc which is quite nice as well.   We did a quick change of clothes and decided to hit the beach.   

Anacapri by Mark Nunneley

We got up this morning and went to Anacapri which is the only other town on the island of Capri other than Capri (the town).   Anacapri is on the highest elevation on the island on the slopes of Mount Solaro at around 2000 ft.   There is a single rider chairlift that goes to the top of the mountain and has spectacular views.     Brittney did great considering she is slightly afraid of heights.

 

 

The Colosseum and Roman Forum by Mark Nunneley

Ok, sorry for being out of order but here are some pics from yesterday at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.   He had a really great tour guide and the girls all "seemed" to love it.

1st Day on Capri by Mark Nunneley

Wow Capri is so beautiful.   There are flowers and vegetation everywhere and they are spectacular not to mention the amazing cliffs and blue water of the Sea.

Capri by Mark Nunneley

Capri is a beautiful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the coast from Sorrento.  Augustus developed Capri around birth of Christ.  

We loved being picked up at the Harbor in Capri by a Taxi with no roof

After we wrapped up in Pompeii we had a driver take us to Sorrento to catch a quick boat to Capri where we will be staying a couple of nights.  

Pompeii by Mark Nunneley

This morning we got up and took a 8:45 Train from Rome to Naples.   Ask Naples we met our car company and headed to Pompeii where we did a quick hour and 1/2 tour.  The girls thought Pompeii was really cool.    

Of course the teens found this modern sculpture on display to take a pic with

Oh and the Apartment by Mark Nunneley

We rented an amazing 3 bedroom apartment on one of the most beautiful pedestrian Streets in Rome, Via Della Croce and just down the street from the best shopping in Rome.   Just outside the front door are amazing restaurants and the Spanish Steps.    

These Italian Boys are trouble by Mark Nunneley

These boys saw Gracie and Brittney (Maddie was in Room not feeling well) and were immediately in love.   They would not leave them alone.   Some were Italian and some were from Spain.   The girls loved the attention
