Positano and Amalfi Coast – The Beauty Among Ancient Ruins.

Positano cannot be described in words.  It is a tiny gem of houses and many, many steps doting a hill overlooking a small bay on the Amalfi coast.

To reach our hotel we are going down a long series of steep steps.

Finally we get to our room and our breath stops in our throats.  We have a corner room with a 270-degree-view large patio overlooking the town, the bay and the beach.  It is stunning!

We are spending three glorious days in Positano marching up and down a lot of stairs.

Although the town is full of restaurants overlooking the bay, we think our patio has a better view.  What can be more romantic than sitting on a terrace, just the two of us, with a glass of good wine, with darkness descending, lights from the boats and the Amalfi coastline below lighting up, tinkling, and the sea mirroring the stars above?

It is our second day in Positano and we are taking a bus over the Cornish to the neighboring town of Amalfi.  The view is literally breathtaking.  So much so, that my wife cannot look down after a couple of rough turns.

The town of Amalfi has a larger harbor and is similar, but we think, not as beautiful, as Positano.

Because of my wife’s experience on the bus, going back, we are taking the sea ferry.

Ancient Rome and Magna Graecia in Southern Italy and Sicily
Our trip of a lifetime was to tour the antiquity of Ancient Rome and Magna Graecia in Southern Italy and Sicily.  We wanted to capture the trip in time and space through an Ancient Rome Travel Video so we could revisit memories we treasure, and share the incredible sights with our friends and family.

My wife and I are history buffs and always wanted to visit the ancient Roman ruins and excavated sites that are scattered along the Italian peninsula and Sicily.  So, our goal for this trip was to have a lot of fun, while hugging some good-looking ancient stones along the way.

Trials and tribulations and incredible wonders were in store for us as we set out to visit as many of the lesser known excavations as we could.  The places few have heard of: The amphitheater in Capua that is almost as large as the Coliseum in Rome, the eerie, towering 2,500-year-old temples in Paestum, and many other ancient cities overlooking the deep blue Mediterranean Sea.

Around the ancient ruins we also enjoyed glorious Positano on the Amalfi coast, eating sweet “dolci” at night after simple meals with fabulous Italian wine.
