Perfect end to the day… sunset above the Mediterranean

 

My favorite day in Italy thus far has been our day trip to the coast. Vietri and Maiori are so peaceful and serene. We wandered down the cobblestone streets, sat and drank cappuccino and ate croissants outside a little caffe on Corso Umberto, and shopped the beautiful handmade ceramics that Vietri is known for.

After wandering Vietri, we drove along the coast with breathtaking views (and heights!) and into the little town of Maiori. It is more of a beach city than Vietri, but the beautiful fortress ruins that a church now sits atop on the nearby cliffs quickly remind you that you are nowhere near the coastal cities of the West Coast. We walked along the beach, had our first real Italian gelato and tried to speak Italian whenever we could.

Probably the best part of the day was our drive home… we weaved through the mountains and the picturesque tiny towns of Campinola, Breccelle, and so many others. After about an hour on the road, weaving through vineyards and taking switch-back after switch-back, the trees broke and we saw the most incredible view of the entire city of Naples with the sun setting over the Mediterranean. The rest of the beautiful little cities were lit with twinkling lights and people were leaving Mass, walking to their favorite restaurants. It was so perfect. Duke was sleeping in his carseat and Danny and I had the perfect playlist playing, holding hands and just enjoying this country we get to call home. One of those moments where no words are needed.
