Amalfi, Campania, Italy

After traveling by boat from Salerno to Amalfi along the beautiful Amalfi Coast, I arrived in Amalfi itself.  The tower of the Cathedral of St. Andrew was prominent in the view of the town, with the dolomite cliffs looming overhead.  A brief stop in Amalfi allowed for a little sightseeing, a little taste of gelato, and a sip of one of Amalfi’s specialties: limoncello, made from fermented lemons steeped in a mixture of sugar and alcohol.  Locals call limoncello “sunshine wine”.  Lemon trees are plentiful along the Amalfi coast, grown in terraces on the steep hillsides.

    Hi Steve,

    I loved this… brought back wonderful memories of the three weeks I spent in Italy back in the 90′s.

      Thanks, Karen! It’s hard to believe I’ve been back from vacation for nearly a month already. Going through these pictures now is great. I have fond memories of being in all these places, but now I can remember them without getting sunburn on my face and blisters on my feet!

  2. Your pictures are absolutely stunning! They make me want to return to Italy again very soon!
