This weekend my roommates and I spent the weekend romping around the gorgeous Amalfi Coast of Italy. It was hands down one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, I only wish we could have stayed longer! We spent our nights enjoying the sunsets and delightful restaurants in the town of Sorrento (we stayed at the Sisters Hostel, which I highly recommend) and spent one of our days on the island of Capri, and the other on the beach in Positano.
Our day in Capri was absolutely unforgettable. We took a boat tour around the Island, visiting a handful of beautiful caves. One of which was the famous “Blue Grotto” which is lit up on the inside with by natural fluorescent aqua lighting and can only be accessed via tiny row boats that you have to lay flat in to get inside the cave and are operated by Italian men who sing operatic Italian songs in the echoing cave. Another must-see highlight of Capri was the view from the chairlift up to the top of Mt. Solaro where there are more breathtaking views and a picturesque cafe where you can get a spritz or glass of prosecco and overlook the island.
Positano was yet another wonderful coastal location that I will never forget. In Positano we spent our time lounging on the beach, enjoying beachside cocktails with the Amalfi coast’s signature limoncello and Italian craft lemon beer, and popping in and out of quaint boutiques and delightful art exhibits. The view of the houses on the hillside of Positano was everything it’s built up to be and more, although the bus ride down it to the beach was a ride I feel blessed to have survived. This coastal town is a gem of the Amalfi coast, and if I ever have the opportunity to return I will make a point to stay there for a more extended period of time.
Below are some of my favorite photographs from this trip, although I took so many pictures it was impossible to choose! The Amalfi coast is such a magical place that it’s perfection could never be done justice by a camera, but I hope I was able to capture a little sliver of this big slice of heaven!
