Last and final stop on this Italian adventure…Positano! I’m sure many of you know the famous village overloaded with beautiful lemon trees, pink oleander and endless amounts of limoncello. Similar to Capri, Positano is a magical place and all you want to do is dress to impress. With that, comes a big luxurious price tag, but this post will show you, you can still enjoy the finer things of Positano while being mindful with your wallet;)
Dine at La Tagliata—> Up in the hills of Positano, this authentic dinner comes with a lot of food, a lot of wine, and a lot of dancing. Not to mention, one of the most breath taking views overlooking the sea. Locals say the best night to go is on Tuesday night as they have live music playing. This was by far the best meal we had and I’m not sure if it was the wine talking or me just being a sucker for live music… I recommend calling the restaurant ahead of time to make a reservation. When doing this, you are guaranteed free shuttle service to and from, which will save you the hassle and cost of a taxi cab. We paid around 50 euro per person, but trust me when I say the food and wine is NON-STOP. You’ll be leaving with a full belly and plenty of jaw dropping pictures.
Picnic at the beach—> My fiancé and I love doing this no matter where we are (Brooklyn, Central Park, Paris, etc) a good take out meal and an epic view has us cuddling up for sunset. After a day at sea, we were starved and spontaneously decided to take our dinner to the beach. Along the beach are many different restaurants, some which we saw on yelp and some we were recommended to go to through friends. We set up a picnic right on the public beach, overlooking Positano’s famous view. It cost us all of 20 euro and we watched the pinkest sunset I have ever seen. I wish we were able to do this more than once on our trip but we didn’t think of the idea until the end of our stay!
Health Kick at Case e Bottega—> I’ll admit, I have seen this place all over Instagram and know that many travelers already know of its existence BUT it was too good not to include in my travel diary. Case e Bottega is a basic girls dream. The place is completely white and is one I would want my summer beach house to look like. Given that we were in Italy for two months, food choices consisted of pizza, pasta, aka carb overload… Here, there are fresh choices on the menu only using organic fruits and vegetables. Another bonus is that there are many items gluten free and dairy free (right up my alley)! Some of my favorite items include the liquid sun smoothie, avocado smoothie bowl, and the coconut passion smoothie.
Boat Day—> When you think of spending your summer on the Amalfi Coast, a private boat tour is something you would want to make a priority for your trip. I used a well respected boat company, Gianni's Boat, to take us out on the Mediterranean for the day. Gianni’s Boat is based out of Capri but luckily there was an option to sail from Positano for a duration of 4 hours. I will admit the tour is pricey as it is completely private with the option to bring onboard food and drinks. We were a party of 4 therefore the cost per person seemed much more reasonable then the total amount. It was honestly a blast and this is where I got some of my favorite pictures from the summer! We stopped quite a few times to swim in the open ocean, take in some sun and just relax. Our tour guide was HYSTERICAL and really made us feel comfortable offering to snap photos, provide history of the island and play our own choice of music.
If any of you are planning on traveling here this summer, I would love to hear your plans!
