“You may have the universe if i have Italy” Giuseppe Verde once said and i completely agree. Italy will always be my favorite place in the world. I love the culture, the food, the vibe. There is so much beauty and so much to see.
Summer of 2015 we decided to visit the Amalfi coast with a 3 day stop in Rome on our way there. So here is a mini journal/guide to our favorite places to stay, eat and explore the cities.
Stay: Casa Morgano
Casa Morgano was recommended to us by some friends and it really did not disappoint. The location is steps away from the Piazzatta (which the downtown area full of all the cafes, bars and shops) but strategically placed so that it’s still quiet enough when you want to rest and sleep. The boutique hotel is super clean and the staff are beyond helpful in helping us with reservations and recommendations and basically anything we wanted. The room itself is huge and extremely airy with breathtaking views of Capri.

Also make like the numerous celebrities and get your custom made sandals while standing in the numerous shoe stores around Piazzetta and Ana Capri. The most popular two are Canfora Capri (Jackie O’s Fav) and L’arte del Sandelo Caprese (Locals call it by the name of Antonio Viva who is the owner) which is one of the oldest in Capri
