Sunday, 31st August – Ravello

After spending time in the searing heat of the ancient city Pompeii, we needed somewhere to go that would be more relaxing and (dare I say it) more lively.

Ravello is possibly our most favourite part of the Amalfi Coast. It has the standard winding roads and beautiful vistas, but not the billions of tourists. Of course, there were many tourists, but not like other parts of the coast.

The following shots show you the sort of scenery you see as you drive in.

Once you have found a car park and walked uphill for ages, you come to a small village with an open town square, church and charming little shops. The view is spectacular and the gardens need to be seen to be believed. We stopped here for lunch and listened to a marching band that happened to be playing in the square.

By the time we had finished lunch, the temperature was really starting to soar and we just wanted to spend the day in a pool. That’s when we had the idea to ask a random hotel if we could use their pool. The staff were super friendly and their pool wasn’t that busy, so for a small fee of around ten euros, we spent the afternoon lazying by the pool, swimming and generally loving our lives.
