Italy 2017 ~ Positano and Capri

The second part of our trip was definitely the highlight for me. Positano is stunning. Pictures will never do it justice, but as you can see below, we sure did try (lol).

Enjoy!

When we first arrived in Positano, we were in awe of how picturesque and beautiful everything was. We couldn’t even make it to our hotel without stopping on the side of the road to look at the views of the Amalfi Coast.

Our hotel was adorable. It was filled with decorative tiles and our balcony had a great view. It was also right in the middle of everything, shops, restaurants, and a beautiful short walk to the beach. I highly recommend clicking the link to the hotel website, just to see pictures of the gorgeous tiles!

After strolling around Positano, we did some serious napping, then got ready for dinner at Le Sirenuse. Now I know I keep saying everything was beautiful and delicious but….well just take a look.

And yes, we were matching once again.

And doing the most because, why not? You are not in Italy every day… We also went out that night to a club in a cave, but those pictures do not need to be posted (lol).

The next day we took a lovely stroll (see below) down to the beach/pier to catch a boat to a small, intimate beach.

The beach was beautiful and quiet. It had massive rocks on which we climbed, sunbathed, and, of course, posed.

Afterward, we became chefs! Well, we took a cooking class and felt like chefs anyway.

Then we ate ourselves into a nice food coma.

Cooking Class: Buca Di Bacco

My favorite day of the entire trip was our day on the boat and our quick trip to Capri.

When we first arrived in Capri our boat driver dropped us off and we were able to walk around for a few hours. We immediately found some gelato and leisurely strolled around, shopping and taking in all of the views.

After a few hours, he picked us back up and took us to lunch at what will probably forever be my favorite restaurant. It incorporated two of my favorite things; fresh seafood and a view of the sea.

After lunch, our boat driver took us on an impromptu cave tour around Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Every time we take a beach trip, we rent a boat for a day and it never disappoints. There is something very therapeutic about being out on the water. The champagne also doesn’t hurt.

Before this trip, we stressed ourselves out trying to all get bathing suits in a similar color for our boat day. We decided to stop overthinking it and everyone just wore what made them happy. This worked out well, as it usually does.

Our last day in Positano was spent taking in the views and food one more time before we boarded our flight to London. The trip left us all completely full, both our hearts and stomachs.
