We followed the road that lead us from Sorrento, along Amalfi coast. The road is very scenic, you get to see some amazing cliffs, but it’s pretty difficult to drive as well. Keep in mind that roads are narrow, very winding and there is a lot of traffic going on. You can either curse the road, or you can take it as a part of the adventure and enjoy the ride.
After an hour of cliffs and amazing views, we arrived to the most popular town of Amalfi coast – Positano.
Positano is a very unique old town, that is situated in a steep coast. Because of the cliffs and it’s position, it is also called “the vertical town”.
As I mentioned in my pervious posts – we were not visiting Amalfi coast during the high season, so everything was much easier. Searching for a parking spot in Positano is a lottery. We were lucky it was not as crowded at the time , so we found a parking spot reasonably quickly.
We headed down along steep steps and explored the town. From every corner, street or restaurant – views were amazing. We spotted a restaurant that had (in our opinion) the most beautiful view over the sea, so we decided to have a coffee and lunch there.
Sitting in a restaurant in Positano, drinking some really delicious coffee, enjoying the view – that was one of the best and most vivid memories from that day. Everything about it was so special. I wanted to visit Positano for so long and I was finally here, the weather was amazing, we got along so well, the food was delicious…
It was one of those moments in life, when you stop for a second and just take everything in. You feel like you own the World, like nothing can stop you and you really are living the dream.
Our next destination was town called Amalfi. We ended up only making a quick stop there, we soaked our feet in the sea and walked on the sandy beach. Amalfi is usually less crowded and not as “popular” as Positano, but I have to say I was pleasantly suprised by it as well. Despite the fact that we spent much less time in Amalfi, I still managed to take a few photos, to share them with you.
I couldn’t bring up a better ending to this “Amalfi coast series”, than to quote myself from a post WELCOME TO AMALFI COAST haha :
“Sometimes you go places and you think they were nice, you had a great time, but you are also happy to be back home, back to your everyday life.
Ah…, and then there are places that trigger something completely different within you. It’s hard to put it in words but if had to I would say it is a mixture of complete happiness, freedom and some weird melancholy at the same time. You already know how hard it will be to leave this place, but on the other hand, being in this place, living your best life definitely outweighs that “post-travel misery”.
That week in Amalfi coast will always have a very special place in my heart, and now it’s time to share with you some adventures from our latest trip to Tenerife. Stay tunned for more!
