24 hours in Positano
I can’t be the only one whose travel plans are hugely influenced by Pinterest these days? More than one of the pit stops on our Italian trip was based on things I’d pinned: first up, Positano.
We arrived on the catamaran from Capri in the late-afternoon. Stepping off the boat, the view of the town creeping up the hillside is as picture-perfect as you’d expect. We checked-in to our hotel, dropped of our backpack and after a quick freshen-up we headed out to explore.
Once again we ended up detouring and accidentally hiking up the biggest hill in town (“What’s up here?” “Dunno, let’s have a quick look…”) but we were rewarded with some Fiat 500-spotting and a brilliant view over the bay. Of course, when we found our way back to town a couple of hours later we justified a couple of cocktails followed by dinner at Casa Mele, which was fabulous (their steak!!).
The next morning we woke up to incredible humidity and a thick mist coating the tops of the hills. After breakfast on the terrace we had a last poke around before hopping on a bus to Sorrento; we were heading back to Naples that day, and while could have got a direct train we decided we may as well see one more place on the way. So, ciao Positano!
Pit stop in Sorrento
After a quick bus ride from Positano we alighted at Sorrento train station & made our way to the Old Town, picking up gelato on the way. I’ll be honest: Sorrento was disappointing so we only stayed for a couple of hours, just enough time to grab some lunch. I was worried I was getting ‘prettiness fatigue’, becoming unconsciously used to Italy’s gorgeousness, but I just don’t think it was for us.
Catch up on our journey so far – I’ll be back with more from Naples!
