Amalfi Coast, Italy | Day 2

Another day over on the Amalfi coast and a beautiful one it was! We started our morning on the beach, eating lemon sorbet and waiting for our ferry to carry us over to Amalfi for the day.  It’s been rainy and a bit chilly since we arrived here in Positano, but today was sunny and warm and absolutely perfect!  The sunshine just feels warmer and brighter out here. It was so nice waking up to our little studio being flooded with the beautiful, white morning light this side of the world has to offer.  We soon boarded our ferry and after a short ride, found ourselves wandering the streets of Amalfi.  We wandered into the town’s main square, the Piazza del Duomo, and eventually meandered up the steps that led to the town’s 9th century cathedral.  It was enormous, ornate, and terribly beautiful. Just to see the extravagant detail and precision that went into forming such ancient works of art was absolutely amazing.  The town square in Amalfi feels “quintessentially Italian” in our opinion, with its cathedral steps littered with passing travelers stopping to enjoy a few moments of rest, the courtyard scattered with bistro tables, gelato stands on every corner, the smell of baked bread in the air, and pigeons scurrying in every which direction.  We stopped for some gelato and caught the last ferry back to Positano, just as the sun was setting over the mountains.  The resulting views were incredible. Here are some images from our adventures!
