Here is the last stage of this our trip to the Amalfi Coast after Naples and Capri. Unfortunately our camera stopped working in the morning so we had to take pictures with the Ipad instead ! This is why the quality of the pictures is not so good, sorry for that. I took then a lot less pictures even with such beautiful surroundings but I hope you’ll still enjoy it. Like I told you in the previous post, we went to Sorrento to take our boat for Capri. When we came back we only made a quick tour in Sorrento because we didn’t have a lot of time, the daylight was fading and we had a long road to go to our last hotel.
We then took the road for the hotel. The road was kind of chaotic especially during the night because it was a narrow and sinuous mountain road, not illuminated at all and with crazy “Wacky races” drivers that didn’t care at all about the fact that 2 cars couldn’t pass at the same time. They were driving at high speed no matter what, you could fall in the ravine, it won’t be their problem !
I will be brief this time because I didn’t love it like I did for the 2 previous ones. The room was nice (with a beautiful floor) but the B&B was a bit simple and sad.

The next morning, when we took back the road, I must say we enjoyed it a lot more even if people were still trying to push us in the ravine, but at least we could appreciate the beautiful landscape (well me, not the Boyfriend who was driving obviously).
We arrived in Amalfi, a touristy city but very charming. It’s a city on a slope of the hill with cute alleys linked by small passages (you’ll understand better by watching the video at the end of this post). There are old Fiat 500 of every color here.
The beach is not amazing, it’s not a beach of fine golden sand and there’s a lot of people even at the end of September so it’s probably a lot worse during summer but it was quite nice to be able to soak our feet in the water.
After walking in the city, you easily understand why it’s listed as UNESCO world heritage. The city is really charming and I loved the strong dolce vita atmosphere. I would have loved to stay more but we had to go to our last stop : Positano, one of the most popular beach paradises of the area.
It’s a charming city as well where I liked to stroll in the narrow streets (even if there were a lot of steps to climb) and to look at the typical white fishermen’s houses. Positano is also listed as UNESCO world heritage.
While strolling, we came accross this cute juice bar frontage. We had already eaten (if you follow well we had grilled fishes and lemon sorbet) but we are « buone forchette » (litteraly « good forks » in Italian) so we were still hungry and the interior was very inviting.
We entered inside and wow I wasn’t expecting that ! How pretty ! Casa e Bottega is a coffee shop and a Mediterranean design shop at the same time.
Isn’ it beautiful ? But it’s also delicious ! Here, they serve you good local organic products : great selection of fruit smoothies, platters of freshly baked desserts and wonderfully fresh healthy salads – a nice reprieve from the overload of pasta and panini’s (apart from the fact that it was our second lunch hi hi) ! It’s beautiful, it’s good and the staff is super friendly : 10/10 for Casa e Bottega !
Casa e bottega – Via Pasitea, 100 – 84017 POSITANO
Positano is the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colors. The typical Italian postcard.
This is the end of our 3 day trip in Italy where we enjoyed beautiful landscapes and wonderful food. I think that the end of September is the best moment to go, there are less tourists and it’s not too hot to visit but the weather is still nice (we had between 25°c and 27°c).
Here is a video recap of this weekend in Naples, Capri, Amalfi and Positano. Don’t hesitate to tell me what you think of it and you can subscribe to my youtube channel so you won’t miss my strolling in videos. :)
Have a nice weekend, arrivederci !
