The stars above were on full display on the clear nights, but we did have 2 nights of wicked lightning storms. This was the first rain Praiano had seen for months.
During the day we toured surrounding territory. Positano, Amalfi, Ravello. Many of the cars you see on this coast are scraped along the sides, either from passing traffic or the cliffs. We chose taxis and buses so we could enjoy the scenery.
Le Tre Sorelle, we lingered at the table out of the hot sun and tasted a memorable meal at the beach. Lots of shops here and no shortage of ways to spend money. Plenty of luxury hotels with stunning views.
Amalfi was gorgeous too, but the highlight for me here was the Cathedral. A place of beauty, repose and faith, it welcomed deep contemplation. Liz and I wandered the back steps and streets together and emerged again at the foot of the cathedral and in the town piazza. Come to think of it, it is likely all the streets eventually wind up somewhere near.

Just as we left the Divina Costa we stopped in at the Herculaneum to wander the ancient ruins and get some context for our next stop - Roma.
More details later.... caio caio
