Amalfi Coast

 Towns built on steep hillsides. I've heard about Cinque Terre and the Amalfi coast from friends for many years. Cinque Terre is in the north and will have to wait until a future trip, but Amalfi was in our sites for this trip. At the front desk of our hotel, they had information on a boat tour that would take us to Amalfi and Positano. Capri and the Blue Grotto is also nearby, but we would need another day for that. 

We signed up for the boat tour, using the Hotels' service because a bus would pick us up right at the front door. The drive to the boat was interesting - spectacular views were so common that even the parking lots had them!

It was a nice day for a boat ride, not too hot, not too cold. The tour guide told us when we were passing by rocks said to be the place where the sirens lured Ullyses with their singing to crash on the rocks.

The tour gave us a couple hours to wander up and down in Amalfi, and get some refreshments.

An interesting fountain, eh?

Then we got back in the boat and hugged the coast up to Positano, which I think was even more picturesque.

Beautiful Positano

Everybody back in the boat. Going back to the bus then the hotel after a very full day on the Amalfi Coast.
