Fiordo di Furore

My friend and I ventured to the Amalfi Coast to find this gem of a beach yesterday! I had seen it on social media and also from a boat but I wanted to go down to the beach. My friend's friend had just gone here two weeks ago and took photos down on the beach well guess what when we went it was closed! Like completely cement wall blocked off. I guess people weren't suppose to go down there since 2017 when they closed the beach off but they only did it with wood boards and you know people they just moved them and went anyways. I was of course disappointment that we couldn't get down to it but it was still a beautiful view! And also important to know... don't believe everything on Instagram just in case you needed a reminder ;)

We also stopped and had lunch. Pasta and Caprese salad and wine and fresh fruit, a typical Italian lunch that was amazing. And here are some other pretty photos from our drive along the Amalfi Coast.

Tivoli Gardens

A little bit of my childhood dreams came true when Clark and I visited Tivoli in December and went to some of the gardens. Clark and I were both about 13 when the Lizzie McGuire movie came out so it was definitely part of our childhood. I remember having it on VHS when I was a kid and watching it and pretending to be Lizzie and of course getting to preform at the Colosseum and a handsome Italian is into you and you are like 14 and just deciding to go off with this person in a foreign country.... okay that is my more adult brain talking but when we did visit it was awesome and just like we saw in the movie! Remember when Paulo was like "I want to show you the Tivoli Gardens at sunset." Well these are the gardens he was talking about.

The gardens were mostly empty because the day we went it was cold and cloudy but that is a good thing because the photos are better when there is no one in them haha. As we were walking along the long line of fountains coming out of the moss covered concert. Clark was goofily sing "hey now hey now this is what dreams are made of..." and I was like "oh Paulo" fun.

Castel dell'Ovo

Hey all so these photos are just from mid July. Clark was leaving for work and we wanted to have a fun day out of the town just us. Of course it is SO HOT here in July so by the time the day ended we were basically melting haha. I had seen Castel dell' Ovo from about every angle that you can in Naples. From the top of the hill and along the coast line but I had never actually been in it or seen it up close. So we walked long the promenade and went inside. Turns out you don't have to pay to go to the top of the castle which was awesome.

We enjoyed awesome views of Naples and the Mediterranean from the top. All while trying to find shade of course because of how hot it was. After we were done with the castle we had a quick stop at the Fountain of the Giants which sits just outside the castle. Then we made our way back along the promenade looking for gelato and obviously we found some because it is Italy and it was delicious.
