Arrival in Amalfi, Italy

We had a rather uneventful trip here.  On Saturday we flew from RDU to Dulles in Washington to Munich and on to  Naples, Italy arriving on  Sunday morning. The tour director met us along with others in the group, and we were taken by bus to Amalfi where we're staying at the Marmorata Hotel.  The hotel overlooks the romantic Amalfi Coast.

On Sunday night we had dinner with the group in the hotel.  Our tour is organized by the NC State University Alumni, and there are seventeen of us plus the tour director.

On Monday, if weather permits,  we will go by boat to the nearby town of Amalfi.  (Our hotel is about a mile and a half from the little town.) Otherwise we will go by bus.  We'll spend the morning in Amalfi and have lunch there.  In the afternoon we will continue on to hilltop Ravello.
