Our Italy Tour

Our self guided tour to Italy covered Rome, Naples (Pompeii and Herculaneum), Capri (Ana Capri), Amalfi Coast (Sorrento, Vietri Sul Mare, Amalfi, Salerno), and Cinque Terre (La Spezia, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Cornigilla, Vernazza, Monterosso, Levanto, Bonassola, and Portovenera).  It was a 30 days of delight, excitement, some surprises, and much good food.  If you ask me what are the 10 most favorite experience, I would say the following:

Strolling the streets of Rome
Feeling transformed by Pompeii and Herculaneum
Eyes gluing to the splashes from the Blue Grotto in Capri
Hiking the trails of Ana Capri, especially the Old Fort Trail
Meeting Guetano in Salerno, and the subsequent visit of Salerno, Paestum, and Amalfi
Hiking from Levanto to Monterosso
Hiking from Vernazza to Cornigilla
Having tiramisu maxi at the Garden Restaurant on the roadside of the ancient Roman Appian Way
Staying in Bonassola for 7 nights, and enjoying the local friendliness.
Missing the train en route from Salerno to La Spezia - A bottle of water costed 27 euro

There you have it!  Each of us came home safely with pictures of lots of smiles.  And I even lost one pound, believe it or not.  I probably will record in more details on the experience.  But below are some pictures of our smiles.
