Positano Magic

After taking the train from Rome to Naples, I made my way to Positano {my favorite place in Italy} It’s beautiful but more than that, the people make it the best for me. South Italy has the friendliest, warmest, good people that I was so excited to see again. I was actually nervous about going back because I almost felt like I would spoil it. Does that make sense? It was so amazing the first time I wondered if it would be the same but it was even better.

I have friends who have made a day trip to Positano and thought it was pretty but I feel like they’re missing out on all the magic of that town. The Amalfi coast is beautiful and a day trip doesn’t do it justice! It was so nice to surprise some friends (locals I’d met last summer) and I always end up extending my stay because I love it so much. Saying good bye was soooo hard but I know I’ll keep coming back forever.

This picture is a little goofy but I was happy in it so I’m leaving it here 🙂


La Terra is the best restaurant to go to! It’s up on the mountain and you have to sit outside and enjoy the amazing view while eating their delicious food!

I may have forced this picture to happen ^ haha


I wrote this post last year about my stay and how I fell in love with it.

You have to go to…

Best restaurants: 

La Terra restaurant for the view & food. It’s at the top of the mountain and you can get a shuttle there if you’re staying in Positano or a nearby town!

Ristorante da Constantino is my favorite and my friend Aida works there! She is the best and always entertains 🙂 I ate here 3 times this stay! And ate wayyyyy too much.

My favorite bars:

Bar Internazionale –  watering hole for a very casual laid back drink with locals

Music on the Rocks – for dancing and very late nights – its gets busier after 1a.m.  and you can take a dip in the ocean before calling it a night

La Pergola – down on the beach they make amazing craft cocktails

Best beaches:

Take a boat to Adolfo beach and eat everything at the restaurant!

Or walk down the stairs to Arienzo beach and we great food & drinks at the restaurant there as well! I actually went here twice this trip!

If you go to any of these places, please tell them I sent you! They’d be so happy to hear people read about them 🙂

My last day in Positano my friend brought me coffee early in the morning since I had a ferry to catch. I was actually able to fit all my luggage on a scooter and I sat on the back sipping coffee riding down the mountain watching the sun come up. 🌅Some of my favorite memories I don’t have any pictures of but Positano is pure magic and I will always come back here.
