NAPLES and The AMALFI COAST
BAR DUE GULFI
Stopped in here for an Espresso, so I could use the bathroom and change into my swim trunks to go swimming at Marina Picolo. If you want to go swimming at Marina Picolo, the best way to get there is to take a little town bus to Due Gulfi (Two Gulfs). Get off the bus, and ask one of the locals where the pathway is to Marina Picolo. It’s a great little walk (10 minutes), with nice sights to see as you stroll down to the beach. You have options of paying for a chaise-lounge at a private beach club, or better yet, there is a free beach that’s awesome. I never pay when swimming at Marina Picolo and always opt for the free beach, which is wonderful.
I reserve saving my money for when I go swimming at Da Luigi Beach Club at the Faraglioni Rocks. It’s gorgeous!
Catch of The Day
I was lucky to catch these two Fishermen bringing in their fresh Catch of The Day, as locals were at the dock to buy the freshest fish humanly possible, directly from these two fine gentlemen, who had a scale on board to weight the fish. This was quite awesome to witness, and was one of the highlights of my trip.
These fishermen had quite a good variety of several different kinds of local fish, and their were about 6 local men there to buy fish from them. It was quite an animated scene as thee fishermen quoted prices of the various fish, and the buyers argued with them over the price, and the two sides bickered back and forth before a final sale was mad.. It was all in good fun, and I totally enjoyed the show.

Gaetano making me a Perfect ESPRESSO
The Hotel Plaza in Salerno s a wonderful hotel. The location is great, being across the from the Train Station and just 3 blocks from the marine terminal where you can catch Ferry Boats to Capri, Sorrento, Ischia, Positano, Amalfi, Cetara, and all points on the Amalfi Coast. You can catch trains to Naples and be there in just 30 minutes.
Gaetano whose family owns and runs the hotel is an absolute Gem. Love that guy. He is so very kind and hospitable and wil make you feel like family, and if you get to know him, you will might be lucky to have him make you a perfect Espresso personally on his prized Espresso machine that he loves dearly. I was so lucky for this, but most of all, I was so fortunate to have a few lovely conversation with Gaetano, he is as I have said a gem, and I will cherish and always remember spending a little time with him and having those nice conversations. “Thank you Gaetano, you made my stay at your family’s hotel in Salerno so very special.

PIZZERIA Di MATTEO
BACK in POSITANO
Walking up the Via Pasitea
La TOSCA is a nice little hotel behind the Quissisana. I first stayed here in 1986 when it was just a modest little pensione and one of the most affordable places to stay in Capritown, Capri, at just about $40. It is still owned by the same family, but is now new a more upscale little boutique hotel. It is situated in one of thee nicest parts of Capri, behind the Quissisana, the Carthusian Monastery, and by the Gardens of Caeser Augustus.

Holding Up The Hill
At BAR MONZU
I had a great time twice in one day at this awesome little bar in Ischia Ponte, Ischia, Italy. I was going to the Aragonese Castel nearby and came across this cute little Italian Bar, right after I had a great few moments watch ( and filming) a couple local Fishermen bringing in their catch of the day. I had to go to the bathroom so I went into Monzu to get an Espresso. I told them I needed to use thee bagno first, and I did, then came out and got a wonderful demi tasse of that great Italian Espresso coffee (Worlds Best). The I made my way to the castel and had a great half day there, with beautiful views of Ischia and Ischia Ponte, along with some great local history.
