We booked a one-night stay at Villa Rina. Below a youtube video from the website, which shows you exactly what it is like. We enjoyed our short stay very much indeed!!!
Reading reviews about the famous 400 steps to get to the villa, was a good preparation, and the walk was not so bad. We passed stunning views along the way!
Villa Rina high on the cliff top overlooking the sea, was peaceful and energising. We stayed in the room called Positano, and it was fantastic.
The appetizing breakfast the following morning was a real treat, with Rina's homemade jam to go with the fresh croissants and toast, totally delicious.
After breakfast we took the downhill coastal path to get to Amalfi centre to do a bit more sightseeing.
Visiting the Paper Museum wasfascinating....
.... and I treated myself to some beautiful handcrafted paper produced locally in Amalfi.
and along the way, away from the crowds of tourists, we came across this neat model village of Amalfi.
The cathedral was well worth visiting and one of the sightseeing highlights of the trip.

All in all a wonderful trip to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. I was thrilled that we travelled by motorbike, as it gave us a unique advantage in enjoying the coastal road. For me as a pillion rider it was exciting, however, it must have been quite challenging as a rider, but K coped admirably with the chaotic traffic, narrow roads and hairpin bends!
I would love to visit Naples, see Pompei and Mount Vesuvius and explore the Amalfi Coast further on a future trip.
