In early May, we had our B.A.D. gals weekend; a bachelorette weekend celebrating our favorite gal, Brooke Annette Davidson, and her upcoming nuptials.
One of my most fun friends in Amsterdam, Brooke, picked the Amalfi Coast to celebrate. We were thrilled! The winters are long and cold in Amsterdam and so we all needed a warm weather trip.
Our Air bnb house was in a tiny town on the Amalfi coast, Atrani. The town directly east from Amalfi, Atrani is quiet, but still walking distance to Amalfi and tons of restaurants. We liked that it was small and manageable.
We arrived Friday morning and started exploring and eating…
…and eating some more!
On Friday night, Melissa organized an Italian cooking lesson in the Airbnb.
Unfortunately, our chef did not come to the cooking lesson, so our Air bnb host stepped in and taught us a few things. She could not speak a word of english…
…we may not have learned much, but it was a blast!
The next morning, we walked around the town of Amalfi, and grabbed a light breakfast before going to a beautiful winery for the day.
We planned to go on a boat, but because of to wind and choppy weather, we went to a vineyard instead. If you are in the Amalfi coast area and are looking for a wine tasting day, you MUST go to Le Vigne di Raito. I am so grateful we went there, because it ended up being the highlight of the trip!
The owner of the vineyard, Patrizia, made us a magical meal after our Vineyard tour. The table overlooked the whole vineyard and the sea. I felt like we were in a food magazine shoot. Form the decor to the food, it was an absolute dream!
Sidenote: we had so many people in the group with dietary restrictions, and Patrizia accommodated us all. Thank you, Patrizia!
The views from the Vineyard was spectacular!
On Saturday night we went to a delicious dinner at Marina Grande in Amalfi and then to a dance club called Africana Famous Club.
On Sunday morning, we strolled around town before our flights back to Amsterdam.
The Amalfi coast is a special place and I cannot wait to go back someday. Hopefully, it is soon!
Until next time and ciao,
