In May and June I traveled along the western coast of Italy, passing through Rome down to the Amalfi coast, and back up to Cinque Terre.

Down near Amalfi I stayed in a little town called Cava de Tirreni, in a hostel converted from an old abbey. One night a parade came through town in Renaissance outfits, ended up in the backyard of the abbey, and did a reenactment of a Renaissance wedding.

Up just north of Amalfi is Napoli, where I took the ferry across to the island of Capri.

Cinque Terre, as the name suggests, is a row of 5 villages along the northern coast of Italy, all built into the mountainsides on the coast.
