Turquoise ocean and vineyards on cliffs – the amazingly stunning Amalfi coast


After Pompeii, the next stop on my trip around Europe last summer was the Amalfi coast. If you don’t have a car, than the best way to see it is by bus. Most of the pictures are from the bus window, so forgive me if they are blurry or have a glare. As terrifying as it was to be at times on this bus whizzing around curves on the edge of the rocky cliff side, the view was staggeringly beautiful.

The bus stops in towns along the coast. The first one had a very interesting cathedral

Impressive homes and vineyards perched on the cliffs


We took a swim in this town

I spotted this gorgeous secluded beach from the bus…

Our last stop was Positano. It is touristy and a resort town, but it really was beautiful.

Here’s that list again of all my posts from our travels that I’ve posted –
