Traveling with Intrepid Day 7-8 - Amalfi

1 comment:
Happy Wednesday everyone! This is the last of my Intrepid Travel adventure posts in Italy (click on the Intrepid label to see all). The final two days of our trip were spent in Amalfi. Unfortunately we had rain for the majority of the time, but we did get one morning of sun where we visited the beach and explored the little town. It's hard to say whether we really experienced Amalfi fairly because the rain definitely affected everyone's mood. I did thoroughly enjoy the day we spent in the sun at the beach and the coastal views were amazing. Some of the others explored the "Walk of the Gods" with our guide Mattea and visited other towns nearby, but I found the winding roads nauseating, so caught up on my relaxation and enjoyed my very large hotel room! We also had some fantastic meals - you can see my amazing scampi dish below.

After our amazing trip we all headed back to the train to go back to Rome. My tickets were all booked thanks to Nicholas at Flight Centre. We all said goodbye to our amazing guide Mattea who was patient, helpful, knowledgeable and always understanding no matter what the situation. Thank you Mattea!

My friends and I all had at least one more day in Rome, so we all agreed to get together one last time in Trastevere. We went shopping, had dinner and enjoyed one last amazing evening in Rome. Sad to part, but we are planning on another Intrepid Travel  adventure soon as there is no better way to see a new place! 

Thank you Intrepid and Mattea for an amazing adventure. Thanks also to Sam at Intrepid in Toronto who helped book the tour, make sure everything was organized and patiently answered all of my questions :) There were so many things I would not have experienced on my own and the friendships I made will last a lifetime.  Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at all about taking a tour!  Buon Viaggio!

Hi, I stumbled on your blog from searches on Amalfi tours. Curious what made you picked Intrepid out of the other adventure tours companies out there? Like G Adventures. How were the accommodations that Intrepid arranged?

p.s. Bonus that your blog has great fashion related posts!
