Exploring Positano with Trafalgar Travel
We woke up to another absolutely beautiful day Maiori. Today we took full advantage of being on the Amalfi Coast and headed toward the quaint village of Positano. The views driving along the Mediterranean coast are just out of this world.
We were all so amazed at how skillful all of the drivers are, and nobody has road rage! The winding roads are very narrow and it’s amazing that buses can even fit on them. Typically, anytime there were two buses going in opposite directions, everyone would ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ as we watched the drivers maneuver around each other.
This region of Italy is known for its lemons. Here’s a great blog post on the history of lemons in Italy. What’s really interesting to me is how humongous they are, literally they are the size of grapefruits.. or a small watermelon.
The Amalfi Coast is the stretch of coastline on the northern coast of the Salerno Gulf on the Tyrrhenian Sea, located in the Province of Salerno of southern Italy.
Selfie sticks are everywhere, which is really funny to me. Our amazing guide Patrizia bought one and below was the first of many group selfies. ♥️
When we finally made it to Positano, we were both in awe. This is exactly what you think of when you think of the colorful villages along the Italian coast. This area is also known for their fine linens, so Nathan bought several beautiful dress shirts. We wandered through the narrow streets and made our way down to the beach, where we enjoyed some, you guessed it… pizza and pasta!
The little cars here make me smile. They remind me of watching Mr. Bean do circles in the roundabout back in the day. 🙂
After a full day, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. Tonight our whole group headed to eat at this insane restaurant that’s built on the edge of a cliff.
Coming up in the next post are our adventures on the Isle of Capri. Stay tuned.
