Rome was my last stop and I couldn't think of a better way to end my European adventure. There's something about Rome that makes you want to experience it all. Just like many other cities on this trip, I have been to Rome a few times so instead of seeing all the touristy spots, I spent my three days there living like a local (or try to)! I met a few true Romans and they were able to show me the rope... We hung out in hip neighborhoods such as Monti and Trastevere, drank wine and laughed so hard in many piazzas, danced the night away at clubs, and definitely fell in love. I even got my 10th (a dainty rose) and 11th (my grandma's birth year in Roman numerals) tattoo in Rome... See! Rome does somehow bring out the adventurous side in me!

Oh Capri, where do I even begin? Capri is obviously an island and you can only get there by boat, what I did not know is how rocky it is. I also did not know of Anacapri which has a really high elevation (Ancient Greek prefix ana- means "up" or "above"). Day one was spent walking around town center, hiking down to La Fontelina and drank spritz, and a sunset boat ride around the entire island to see Blue Grotto, Faraglionli and Punta Carena Lighthouse. On the second day, we went up to Anacapri and took the chairlift up Monte Solaro which has the most beautiful view of Capri. We grabbed lunch (as well as espresso and pastries) before heading back down to Marina Piccolo. It was a gorgeously warm day so we laid out in the sun and dipped in the water before heading back to town and had the most delightful pasta for dinner. Capri was different, it felt truly like a vacation but two days there was more than enough and from there, we departed to Rome...

Positano might be the most recognizable locale in the Amalfi Coast, but there are many other beautiful towns in this region. Amalfi itself is one and has the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen - Duomo di Amalfi. I have never seen anything like it! I mean, the stripes! C'mon! The town is quaint and at sunset, everything lit up in the softest shades of pastel like a scene from a Wes Anderson movie. It was surreal. On our way to Amalfi, we made a stop at Fiordo di Furore which is a total hidden gem (I suppose it's not so hidden anymore since we found it on Instagram haha). The bus dropped us off on the top of the bridge and we hiked down these rocky steps to the most serene little beach. We heard that this spot is very popular in the summertime but it was October so we had the whole place to ourselves. If you ever find yourself in the Amalfi Coast, I highly recommend stopping by Fiordo di Furore!

I have been to most of the major Italian cities (Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples, etc.) but never seen Amalfi Coast. It has always been a dream of mine to see all that it has to offer and I finally made it happen! From Venice, we flew to Naples and drove to Positano and spent two days there before heading to Capri. I had really high expectations for Positano, mostly because of all the beautiful and surreal photos I keep seeing all over social media. So whats my verdict, you ask? It was pure magic. We stayed at a Bed & Breakfast on top of the hill overlooking the ocean. Downtown Positano was just 15 minutes or so away where you can eat great food (lunch at the infamous Le Sirenuse was amazing), shop local goods (I got the coolest hand-embroidered denim jacket there) and hang out at the beach. Positano did not disappoint but you really have to see it with your own eyes.

There is no place like Venice... no cars, just boats, and way too many stairs on bridges. Lugging my suitcase up and down a million steps over countless bridges was NOT fun and I even lost one of my Ray-Bans during that process, but alas Venice is beautiful and worth the struggles. Just like Paris, I have also been to Venice three times but unfortunately there seems to be more tourists each time. We stayed in a tiny bed and breakfast over looking a canal and our room with striped wall was the most adorable! We were even able to climb out to the ledge of the window and got some amazing shots! We were only there for two days but we walked miles through alleys and drank way too many spritz! Ciao Venice! Positano is next!
