Capri or the Amalfi Coast?
I am pinching myself to be going to either, it’s a life long dream come true. But, I’m not sure if there’s time for both… Or is there? Here’s the plan:
We’ll drive down from Rome on a Wednesday and need to be back in Rome on Sunday night.
There’s not much we want to do other than soak up la dolce vita…bask in the sun over long lunches with a view, eat lemon gelato, sip limoncello, eat Caprese (hmmm, I’m noticing a trend)…and not feel hurried or rushed, but here’s what scares me:
Rick Steves has called Capri the biggest tourist trap on the planet. Rick Steves! Yikes. From photos I’m not sure I’d exactly mind being trapped but I’m hoping you might be able to weigh in.
Have you been? What are your thoughts?
I’ve read the key to Capri is staying overnight, after all the daytrippers have taken a ferry back, which we’d definitely do. And we’re lucky that May isn’t peak season too, as we’re really hoping to escape.
FB revels in the opportunity to drive the crazy, windy roads of the Amalfi Coast and we both love just walking and walking and walking…and eating and eating and eating. We, however, do tend to get island fever and, embarrassingly, once even flew home early from the Caribbean (I know…) but I also can’t see being right by Capri and not going.
Which would you pick? Or is there time for both without feeling rushed? Schedules and vacation don’t go hand in hand in my book. However, gelato and limoncello do. 😉
