EUROPE TRIP 2016 - PART 4: ITALY


After Amsterdam, we made our way over to Italy. The weather in Italy was absolutely beautiful! A huge change from the chilly UK and rainy Amsterdam. Our first stop in Italy was Naples, where we stayed in the coolest AirBnb. We met up with two of our other friends there and shared a spacious house between the 6 of us. 

Tip: Be sure to try the coffee and pizza (they had gluten free!) in Naples, it's seriously amazing.


After Naples, the 6 of us took a train to Sorrento, where we spent the next few days in a cute little beach house. Once in Sorrento, we took a train back to Mount Vesuvius and spent the day riding horses up the mountain to the top of the volcano. It was undeniably one of of the most incredible experiences I have ever had in my life. After our adventurous day at Mount Vesuvius, we went back to Sorrento where we spent our time exploring the town and visiting the beach. On our last day in Sorrento we took a scenic bus ride along the Amalfi coast and stopped to visit gorgeous Amalfi before preparing to catch the train to Florence. 

Tip: The bus ride along the Amalfi coast is absolutely amazing, but take caution if you have a fear of heights...trust me. 


In Florence, we did lots of shopping, ate plenty of gelato and visited the cathedral. After Florence, we took the train back to Rome where we visited the colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain and explored so much more of the city. There was never a dull moment in Italy, it was such a culturally interesting place with so much to offer. I know I've probably said it about every single place so far...but Italy is definitely a place I'd love to go back to!






If you are ever in Sorrento you should definitely pay a visit to Puro for yummy salads, delicious gelato and an indoor swing!
