As soon as I saw the first pictures of Torre dello Ziro, I knew this was the place we were gonna stay on the Amalfi Coast. It looked so lovely.
We were welcomed by Lella when we arived. It was almost like sleeping over at a friends house. We immediately felt at home. Lella lives in the house and has a very friendly cat running around.
After a great first night it’s time for breakfast in the garden. What a view! The picture almost at the bottom of this post is taken from the garden. Every morning Lella bakes cakes, muffins or other sweet delights. There are many other options to choose from, like cheese, yoghurt, crackers, bread etc. The coffee is great..very important :-)
I wish I had a bathroom, like we had in our room, at home. The hand painted tiles look like Portugese Azulejos. We had a big window, through which we could see the ocean.
Lella knows a lot of great restaurants in the area. I loved Ravello, it was my favorite place for dinner and a nightly stroll. Amalfi and Positano are beautiful, but very busy. It’s just a ten minute drive home from Ravello to the B&B. Check out Babel for dinner!
It’s a lot of fun to drive along the Amalfi Coast, but don’t be in a rush. If you are planning on renting a car, pick a small one if you like your life! The Amalfi coastal road is narrow and curvy and the giant touring busses won’t really slow down for other traffic..
Be sure to book a boat trip with Amalfi Tours at the Amalfi marina. We booked one to Capri and absolutely loved it! Capri is not very special though..based on the two hours I was there. We only saw bus loads of tourists everywhere we went.
The Amalfi Coast is beautiful! Highlights for me were Villa Cimbrone and the Path of the Gods (an amazing walking trail). So drive safely, don’t rush, try to keep your eyes on the road & enjoy all the beauty around you :-)
