Sorrento and Capri, Italian Adventure

12177750_10156174435470057_1348375176_nThe last stop on our Italian adventure was Sorrento, also known as the gateway to the Amalfi Coast.

Sorrento boasts gorgeous sea views, colourful buildings and delicious Italian cuisine. Like almost all the towns of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento is full of cobblestone alleys, beautiful old churches, and more lemon paraphernalia than you could shake a stick at.

Dried lemon pasta, lemon soap and perfume, lemon-themed pottery and of course, Limoncello lined the busy streets.

We spent the afternoon exploring it’s rustic streets, up and down different piazza’s until reaching the coast.

Leonelli’s beach is sunken at the bottom of the cliffs base, with brightly coloured umbrellas and little fishing boats lining the black volcanic sands and the turquoise med.

From here, you can jump on a ferry over to the magical island of Carpi.

As you arrive you cannot help but fall in love with this magical island paradise. The Marina Grande, full of day trippers and boats of all sizes boasts the bluest waters and the most breath-taking views.

When you see Capri in all its wonder, you can see exactly why it has become the playground for all Mediterranean high-rollers.

After a short, but very up- hill climb we made it to the town’s centre.

Lavish hotels, designer boutiques and the chic-est of Italian woman make Capri feel as if it were a fictional, Italian heaven and we were obsessed…

After finding an amazing spot to enjoy an Aperol Spritz, we watched over a beautiful sunset before the most amazing five course, Italian feast.
