The small costal town of Sorrento in Campania, Italy boasts a laid back southern Italian charm with cliff dropping views to impress. The town overlooks the Bay of Naples and has several breathtaking views of Vesuvius and Capri.

Southern Italy is known for it’s pizza, and while they say Naples has the best pizza I’m going to have to disagree and tell you this little town of Sorrento outside of Naples offers the best pizza you will find in all of Italy. Its the perfect thin crust foldable delicious pizza you picture when you travel to this amazing country. The town is also famous for it’s limoncello, an alcoholic digestif made from lemon rinds, alcohol, and sugar served all throughout Italy.

The Isle of Capri off the coast of Naples, is a beautiful, romantic destination we’ve all read and heard about forever, and with us being so close we decided a day trip over was a must! To get there we took a short ferry ride from the Marina Grande on Sorrento. After arriving, we immediately began walking to the top of the island to find all the fabulous views. Huge mistake!! After two minutes of straight incline we should have turned around to take the bus with everyone else on the island, but we kept going and eventually made it to the top of this ritzy and beautiful place filled ohhh myyyy shopping, amazing views, and convertible taxis. Because who would take a normal taxi in Capri?? This one of those places you check mark for later in life when you can travel five star style, pop champagne like water, and shop only designer. Heaven! Instead of being one of the literally 10,000 day trip tourists….ouch!

Well it’s time to head to the Greek Isles Ekkkk!! I’m so excited I can’t hardly stand it because I’ve heard the most amazing things about Greece. To get there we’ll be driving over to Bari, on Italy’s east coast and hopping on overnight ferry with the car and all. We’ll be arriving in Patras and driving to Athens to then get on a plane to our first Greek destination, Santorini. See you soon!
