In Oct' 2011, I took my new(ish) husband to Europe for his first EU experience. I'm lucky to be able to travel to Europe every year for work, and I had even holidayed in the Amafi Coast before (5 years earlier). I knew that this region of Italy would be seeing me again. It's stunning. So when the time came for me to plan a 3 week vacation in Europe with hubby, I wanted to show him the best of the best. Most of our 3 weeks were spent in Italy, and the Amalfi Coast received most of our attention. We stayed first in Positano and then a few days up in Ravello.
We keep dreaming about Hotel Caruso; the beauty of the property, the amazing pool, the delectable food in their restuarant and the views. Wow. We loved everything, from the charming elegant feel of the hotel decor to the friendly and personable staff. There were other wonderful touches like prosseco & fruit on arrival & my favourite Bvlgari ammeities in the bathroom. Sure, it may seem pricey, but here I am more than a year after our stay, still dreaming about our experience and wanting BADLY to go back. I know we will be back... This is a place worth every cent.
Ravello is such a wonderful town, with plenty to do - the gardens & villas are breathtaking, the ceramics / pottery are exquisite, the food - Mama Mia!, the gelato shop to the left side of the church.... Ahh...
