In a totally unprepared way we took the most beautiful hike in Amalfi. After wandering up to the paper museum (Amalfi is apparently known for its Amalfi paper) we took an unexpected turn and ended up walking up through the most breathtaking landscape. The Valle Delle Ferriere turned out to be the most unexpected and wonderful part of our day in Amalfi. We walked past lemon groves, farmers with pack mules, farms, ruins, and waterfalls all in a couple of hours.
Eventually we stopped at the most adorable and delicious little restaurant on the side of the mountain overlooking the lemon groves and small farms. We had the freshest sandwiches made with mozzarella, salty salami and fresh crisp greens from the garden. The only two drink choices were wine or lemonade so we opted for the lemonade on this hike and found it fresh and tart! This turned out to be one of my favorite places in Italy and it goes to show that sometimes the unplanned and unexpected moments take you to the most memorable places.
