Travelling The Amalfi Coast – Positano
When Corey and I got engaged, I immediately began dreaming of our honeymoon destination, and at the top of my list was the Amalfi Coast (with a quick stopover in the South of France of course). But much to my surprise, Corey was set on Thailand, and I must admit, once I did some research, I completely agreed it would be the best spot for our Honeymoon (with a compromise of travelling to Italy for our next big trip).
So just over a year later, off we were to the Amalfi coast. While on the coast, we decided to stay in Positano, Sorrento and Capri.
Where to Stay. What to Do. Where to Eat. What to Wear.
We stayed at Le Sirenuse, a boutique 1950’s hotel that sits on the cliffs of Positano, offering spectacular views of the village and the ocean.
The night we got in we were exhausted and decided to dine in at the hotel restaurant, La Sponda (which lucky for us was a Michelin Star and the food was DIVINE).
The next day, we took to the sea in a vintage Italian wooden boat, touring around the coast, and swimming in the bright blue water.
We then chilled by the pool, had some drinks, and oh yeah, ate the world.
The next day we took a tour of the Amalfi Coast, travelling through all of its charming villages, most notably, Ravello. I highly recommend visiting or even staying in this quaint spot (I wish I knew about it sooner as I would’ve loved to stay a little longer!).
We visited their coffee shops, boutiques, and their picturesque gardens with views of rolling hills covered in lemon trees.
We then travelled all the way up to Montepertuso and ate at the most delightful restaurant, La Tagliata Fattoria, where it’s literally farm to table. The food (and the wine) was delicious and the views were out of this world. A bottle of wine and a 5 course lunch for $20 euros a pop? SOLD.
When travelling to the hot, hot heat, it’s important to bring light-weight fabrics, easy throw-on-and-go dresses and LOTS of bathing suits (not to mention a cute topper that not only looks good, but protects from the sun too!). A carry all bag is another essential as are a few pairs of flat sandals for all that walkin’ (and trust me, Positano is ALL stairs, so flats are a MUST).
Here are some of my favourite looks I wore in Positano:
High-Waisted Bikini with Tassels – Tularosa, Revolve; Dress – ZARA (similar HERE also love this ONE), Off The Shoulder Dress – Club Monaco (similar HERE), Sun Hat – Eric Javits, Nordstrom, Travel Tote – Madewell, Shopbop, Sandals – Ancient Greek Sandals
Stay tuned for our trip through Sorrento.
