Positano & day trip to Sorrento – Amalfi Coast, Italy – May 2015

“La Bella Vita” in Positano – 🇮🇹 🍝

By the time we got to Positano the Italian culture was starting to set into our genes 😊.

Notre Bernardo s’est converti en Italien!

We arrived at Positano by Ferry.   As mentioned in a previous post the ferries on the Amalfi Coast follow the coastline so the scenery is pretty nice. These ferries travel all along the Amalfi Coast and are convenient as they run often and are usually right on time (in comparison to local buses which sometimes are full by the time they get to your bus stop). If your travels permit, we recommend travelling the coast by ferry.


On our way to Positano, we spotted the Monastero Santa Rosa hotel on the cliff above ❤️. (mentioned in a separate post).

Before coming to Italy we had often seen pictures of Positano when looking for information on the Amalfi Coast. So arriving at Positano for us was like entering into a travel magazine.

There are no elevators here. 😊Time to get in shape again! We stayed at Villa Rosa. This was a beautiful spot with a spectacular view from the balcony. The breakfast was included and it was a nice way to start off the day on our balcony in the morning.

During the daytime, the village of Positano is filled with tourists but in the evening many leave, so staying their overnight is enjoyable.


Each day we had to walk up and down Via Cristoforo Colombo street to get to our Villa.  The renowned hotel La Sirenuse was on this same street.  One afternoon we decided to go in and to our surprise, a very kind “bell boy” showed us around the hotel and we got to see the amazing views from the terrace.  Grazie!

From Positano, we took a ferry to Sorrento and spent the day there. For many tourists, Sorrento becomes a home base for visiting the Amalfi Coast and Capri. We choose to just spend a day there.


Well, time to leave the beautiful Amalfi Coast and head to the island of Capri.
