We only spent an afternoon in Amalfi, mainly eating gelato, with a short walk in the sand, so I don't really have good pics to post, but here are some snapshots from Positano and Oplontis:
Positano is known for its dress shops and I had also heard about the places that will custom assemble sandals for you.
I had some made by Giovanni:
orange suede with gold hardware
my girls had some made also, at another shop
my kids attacking a pizza for lunch
the other view
supper at Ristorante Bruno the night before
A few more pics around the town:
The Canadian Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium was filming. We just may have been extras. I don't think we'll ever know.
And Oplontis... I am so glad we decided to visit Villa Poppaea (thought to be the villa of the second wife of Emperor Nero) in this town that was an aristocratic resort area back in the day. The colors and details on the walls here are astounding. Some of the best preserved Imperial Roman frescoes - and absolutely gorgeous. Just incredible. If you visit Pompeii, I highly recommend a visit here too:
Some pics from our hotel are up next.
