Weekend Recap: The Amalfi Coast


What can I say, my job is rough -- last weekend in Tuscany and this past weekend in the Amalfi Coast! I absolutely love the Amalfi Coast, and I think our three-day weekend there is my favorite excursion (Venice is a close second).

We begin our weekend in Capri, with a boat ride around the island, lunch on the beach, and a limoncello tasting in the afternoon. Students always love climbing on the rocks and jumping into the crystal clear water (warning, there are very few sandy beaches in Italy).


Goofy group pics are a must.

The next day we head to the adorable and picturesque town of Positano for a relaxing beach day. This day is my absolute favorite! Nothing beats sipping little bottles of prosecco, eating fresh strawberries, and looking at this view:

What I wore - Lilly Pulitzer Tunic (similar) // Lilly Pulitzer Shorts // Local Hat
Clearly we had no fun!
Of course, no trip to the Amalfi Coast is complete without a visit to my sandal man! He hand crafts the most beautiful Italian leather sandals (right in front of you). I usually get something sparkly, but this year the leopard was calling my name.


For our final day, we tour the ruins of Pompeii and hike the volcano that destroyed it, mount Vesuvio! 

What I wore - Zara Top // J.Crew Factory Shorts // Target Hat (similar) // Max and Co. Bag // Lace Toms


The hike up Vesuvio is relatively easy, the bus drives you up ⅔ of the way and you finish it. I think it's really fun (not all the students agree) and there is nothing like staring into the crater of an active volcano!

We got yelled at for this photo op. Notice the "do not climb" sign, but it was totally worth it.

While it was a fun weekend, it was tiring and I am happy to be back in Florence! You can read more about the Amalfi Coast here.
