Positano Travel Guide

Positano-Amalfi Coast

Three years after traveling to Positano for the first time, we finally made it back and took a weekend trip there from Rome over the holiday weekend. Positano was my favorite place we traveled to during our first vacation in Italy in 2015. I always knew we would be back eventually but I never could have imagined that the events would have unfolded in the way that they did and we would be making our return to Positano after coming up on 2 years of living abroad.

Positano is a special place and one that I’m quite fond of. It’s a cliffside village in the south of Italy, located on the Amalfi Coast, very well-known for its insanely beautiful and picturesque landscape. You have probably seen many photos on Instagram of this town with its colorful houses perched among hills with stunning mountains and beaches alongside it.

If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, here are some suggestions on what to do, where to eat and stay while you’re there.

There is also wine tasting available and other unique dining options for those that want a different dining experience.

Goodbye Winter

Valentino

I refuse to believe that mid-March is already knocking on our door. This winter was our first in nearly 5 years living in Miami, which I was sort of looking forward to, but without regard it seems to be moving on as quickly as it arrived. In contrast to how quickly winter as fleeted, I think I often fail to realize how fortunate I am to be able to live at such a slow pace compared to how my life was a year ago. I used to stress about finding enough time or energy to accomplish anything else outside of work, whereas nowadays, my day to day routine usually consists of a 30 minute workout, working on my blog or YouTube channel, catching up on emails, and teaching for 1 or maybe 2 hours a day.
