On our first full day in Italy, we were set to tour the Amalfi coast. Our guide picked us up from the hotel early that morning and off we went to explore Priano, Amalfi, Ravello, Marmorata, Minori, Salerno and everything in between. On our way through Positano we passed a linen shop on the top of the hill and asked the van to stop for us to run in. The linens hanging on the porch of the store were gorgeous and we wanted a closer look. The shop had everything type of linen garment you could imagine!
We walked in and were greeted by a lovely woman. She helped us navigate the store and mentioned it was a family business. Jet lag was tough and it was an early morning for everyone… As I wandered through the store, I couldn’t stop yawning. A stout man with thick rimmed glasses caught me mid-yawn and asked, “Caffè?”. Embarrassed, I politely declined. He asked again and assured me that his brew would wake me up. He introduced himself as Vito, “the owner of this store!” and insisted that I needed a caffè. How could I say no to this? I agreed to coffee and followed him to the back room of his shop.
We landed in Naples, stopped for pizza at Ciro a Santa Lucia, toured the National Archaeological Museum, hopped in the van and took off to Positano. It was a whirlwind day, but then again that’s how most Tea trips go… we always seem to hit the ground running (and in this case, quite literally, as we ran from customs in Rome to our flight to Naples!). Planning a trip to the Amalfi coast can be a bit daunting because there’s just so much to see and do. Here, we share a bit of our coastal itinerary for a few tips to help your family travel the Tea way!

When we first came across Amanda Watters’ blog, it was this post on her new family of five that we loved most. We swooned over the photography and knew that while Amanda’s family would be a dream to work with, Kaley from Kansas would have to be the one to capture the magic. Her airy photos were just perfect -she captures those little moments that only a skilled eye and a full heart can produce.
