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.

Reading the title of this post, you are probably asking yourself, “What or where is Ischia?” as it is often one of the more underrated islands in Italy that people don’t usually hear about. If you have heard of Ischia, it is probably due to the recent earthquake that occurred a week ago on the island, but don’t let this news turn you away from this magical place just yet.

As unfortunate as that news is, in reality, earthquakes are quite common in Italy in general and can happen anywhere at anytime. During my time living in Rome, I experienced at least 3 earthquakes that I can re-call.

With this post, I wanted to shed light on this beautiful, little island and re-visit my memories during our short 2 day stay there at the beginning of this summer…
