CIAO AMICI! Welcome to my Amalfi loving travel diary. As many of you know, one of my favorite places in the entire world is Positano. This summer, I decided that yet again, I wanted to travel to this magical little town on Italy’s coast. My trip began in Rome, but we only slept there so that we would wake up bright and early to head to Positano. The fiance and I took a car to Sorrento and from Sorrento we rode a ferry that took us directly to Positano’s port. If you want my honest advice book hotels one month in advance, they sell out super quickly since it’s high season and the weather is beautiful.
For those of you who have not been to Positano, it’s beachy and coastal casual town with stunning scenery and picturesque cites everywhere. It is literally like living in a post-card. We stayed at Hotel Vittoria, which was walking distance from the infamous umbrella beach. Not only that, but the hotel was also walking distance from Positano’s center. The front desk lady was so nice she even booked a boat tour for us once we got there (150 euros for 2 hours just the two of us)
Breakfast with a nice view and a lot of pastry goodies!! Fun fact I love carbs … put a basket of bread in the table and I will finish it before the wine gets there.
The first day at the beach we rented a boat to take us cruising around the coast and I swear I cannot explain how beautiful this was. After our ride, we had dinner at Tre Sorelle. This restaurant had the most delicious and authentic Italian delicacies! We stayed here until the fireworks ended. Such a fairytale ending to a perfect day! Honestly any restaurant in town is amazing just make sure you have reservation … it is one of those busy places that if you don’t call beforehand you most likely won’t make it.
The following day, we relaxed by the beach and promenaded around the town. It was a way to get more familiar with the area and to walk into cute little shops. That same night, we had dinner at Rada. This amazing restaurant had incredible views and people would come up and serenade us at the table. This place is a little bit on the fancier and pricier end, so make sure you keep that in mind if you decide to make a visit soon.
They always make the cutest and most delicious gelato here and the best part is your eating them while enjoying a magical walk.
If you’re looking to visit Positano anytime soon I strongly recommend it. However, make sure to make reservations before going to dinner because there are never tables available if you just walk in. All in all, Positano is just as magical and gorgeous as it looks in pictures. The people here are so friendly and inviting one will never want to leave, also weather amazing during Summer so try and come during that time … Try and bring a light luggage as well since it’s all uphills and downhills, you might not believe me but I brought a carryon bag (even as a blogger haha) and it was more than enough… Long story short everything about it is complete perfection.
