Day 1 (travel) & Day 2 (Amalfi and Ravello)

Travel to Italy was pretty easy, no problems but it was a long journey. We left DC on a 7pm flight and finally arrived in Amalfi around 5:30pm the next day. Our hotel in Amalfi came as a recommendation from our travel agent Lisa at Travel Place. Hotel Marina Riveria is right on the coast and our room has an amazing view.

We can literally see the water from our bed…just amazing.

We explored the town a little, had dinner and then crashed hard. I was so exhausted that I didn’t take one picture. We ended up sleeping for over 13 hours.

Our first full day in Amalfi started a little later than we had thought since we slept in so we decided to really explore Amali. We did some sightseeing, a little shopping and a lot of eating. The one trattoria we ate at had the best spaghetti pomodoro. Hubby said it tasted just like his Italian Grandma’s pasta.

Per some of your recommendations, we decided to head to Ravello during the late afternoon. We walked around and saw some amazing sites and did a little more shopping. Hubby picked up a pair of shoes and I got a cute bracelet. After all the walking around we were starving and headed to Trattoria Cumpa Cosimo, a recommendation from the hotel. It was AMAZING!!!! I got insalata mista and fettuince bolognesse and Hubby got grilled provolone and fettucine with porcini mushrooms. Such an amazing dinner. I highly recommend this place. Very affordable, great service and the food is out of this world!
