Italy coast to coast: an unforgettable journey!
1st of September | Roccella Ionica (RC) That night I didn’t sleep. At 4 am I was still on Skype with a beautiful girl and at 6 my journey had to start. Sunrise of a new day.
LAMEZIA TERME (REGGIO CALABRIA) | KM 0. We turn on the engine and go!
Although I didn’t sleep I was ok: the excitement and adrenaline had the upper hand!
I thought about how many things had changed and were changing around me. Change is not easy but necessary sometimes. This trip had the express purpose of lightening most of my thoughts. I was happy, really happy.
In the afternoon, the journey continues to Salerno, my dear friends are waiting for me…Here we are with some excellent homemade limoncello! Thanks Eleonora’s mum for exquisite parmigiana!!
And here Thor, Eleonora’s dog. The cutest dog ever.
2nd of September | Amalfi Coast
This day have been very important to me. After resting, the second stage of the jounrey began: exploring the Amalfi Coast…
The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coast of about 50 km that goes from Salerno to Positano. The most beautiful 50km of the world due to the narrow road overlooking the sea and the breathtaking views. In this photo I was slowed down by a typical Italian transport: the Ape Car!
I’m eager to get to Ravello. In Ravello you can visit two of the most beautiful villas in the world: Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.
We start from Villa Rufolo famous for its floral view over the whole coast …
And here is Villa Cimbrone, famous for the Terrace of Infinity. Villa Cimbrone from that day for me is the place of the heart.
I reveal you a secret…I promised myself that one day I would get married here 🙂
The journey continues. Destination POSITANOOOOOOO!
I can not properly describe the emotion I felt when its beauty was shown to my eyes…
This is the view from the Hotel Le Sirenuse…historic hotel in Positano.
And this is the night view from Il San Pietro Hotel, the most striking.
If you want to have an aperitivo, il San Pietro di Positano is the right place!
3rd of September | Time for a short stop in Rome with typical “bucatini all ‘Amatriciana” :p
And then off to Florence…
A short stop in Pisa to meet my beloved friends Rocco and Cetty…
And n the night Forte dei Marmi! My dear and old friend Elisabetta is waiting for me! With her you won’t miss a drink or a party! In fact, here “la Capannina di Franceschi”, a must to for the Italian night entertainment.
4th of September ! Woke up early in the morning. After 1453 Km I arrived in Milan and this is the photo with which I want to remember this incredible journey.
I would like to thank Eleonora and Mariano from Salerno, Maria Giovanna from Sorrento, Rocco and Cetti from Pisa, Elisabetta from Forte dei Marmi for making family and even more special this wonderful adventure.
I dedicate this trip to the girl who kept me awake on Skype until 4am as she was with me in every part of it.
I felt beautiful emotions that I won’t ever forget.
See you to the next trip!
