Lunch spots during day hikes around Amalfi coast

PeggyD | Jun 26, 2008 06:55 AM

Traveling to Rome (per other posts) and spending several days around Amalfi coast and Capri to do day hikes, enjoy beach, see the beautiful scenery with kids (active, age 8, always hungry!) and explore. I think I have the evening dinners planned, as we are staying in Positano (Il Marincanto), and will be driving over to Amalfi and Ravello and other spots that I have already researched. What I don't know is anything about the lunch stops possible at the end of the morning hiking. We have planned several beautiful routes (per the Sunflower Guide), and it looks like we will be in Nocelle, Montepertuso, Santa Maria del Castello, Bomerano, Praiano, Vettica Maggiore, and probably one day trip to Capri. Except for Capri, are these other spots places we can find lunch, or should I plan to just bring sandwiches + in the backpack for picnics??? I know the famous Dona Rosa is in Montepertuso, but such an elegant evening spot won't do -- we will be hot, and in shorts & hiking clothes. Has anyone done these hikes before and found any fun spots to check out for lunch -- or even worth going back to in the evenings?? Any advice would be great!!
