With a 13:05 flight allowing two hours for check in and get rid of the car and a two hour drive it's a 8:30 start this morning back to the airport and our travel back home
With quite a few Euro's less in our pockets we should have had a fantastic time in this new area of Italy we have never visited.
Up early at 7.30 and a buffet breakfast in the small lounge. The owner Luigi of this small place is so welcoming, on departure he gave us a bottle of local olive oil.
We then popped our luggage in the car and proceeded along the coast road towards Rome. The coastline here is very much like Cornwall with little sandy beaches in small bays dispersed by rocky outcrops. The winding road hugs the coastline for miles occasionally going through tunnels when the coastline becomes to severe for a road !!
Eventually the deserted roads flattened out and as we approached the outskirts of Rome the traffic intensified.
Road conditions have been quite "interesting" !! Under and over taking is allowed, most of the cars have bangs and scrapes on them, and some of the roads around Positano were so narrow with parked cars it was nearly impossible to drive along, never mind about it being a two way road !
Anyway our lovely ford C-max made it back in one piece and we are currently sat at Gate H18 at Rome airport, the same location that we flew from when we came last to Rome with the staff.
