In the planning stage
Although 2018 is still quite far off, we have already booked time on the Amalfi Coast, so it is touchdown in Italy. What we do before and after Amalfi is all in the concept stage.
We return to Italy
Nothing committed yet, but I always enjoy my time in Napoli. We have a friend there, and it would be good to reconnect.
If we are in Amalfi, then we will spend some time in Ravello. Although parts of the town seem dominated with tourists, walking and exploring the area gives view of the beautiful old town and it feels like just you and the history are there at the moment.
Once we get to Italy there are so many other regions to consider.
Italy is about architecture, the countryside, the people, the food and the culture. It is about just being there.
We may be able to get back to the Parco Regionale Appia Antica. The park, a protected area since 1988, is very large, around 3400 hectares, too huge for a day walking trip. But I found on a previous visit there are where you can park a car and then walkinto sections and get a real sense of the park. You can rent bikes also.
