Accommodations: We stayed at an incredible air BNB. We highly recommend Enzo’s apartment in Positano, Campania, Italy. It has two bedrooms with queen size beds and 1 bedroom with a twin bed. The balcony is huge with breathtaking views.
Highlights: Very central, can walk to the beach and well priced. The cutest cafe, Casa E Bottega, is around the corner. (amazing coffee, smoothies and breakfast)
Downfalls: You have to be prepared to climb a lot of stairs with your luggage.
Hosteria Tre Sorelle
We really enjoyed Hosteria Tre Sorelle for lunch and the views. All the restaurants on the beach are going to be somewhat touristy because who would want to leave those views? The food here was delicious for when you find yourself needing a break from that Positano sun.
La Terra Ristorante
They say that as you climb up the hills of Positano, the restaurants get better. This seemed to hold true for all three nights that we ate dinner in Positano, plus the views are always better from the top. Try and request a window table to enjoy the views at La Terra. The nicer restaurants will send you a car or van to pick you up for your reservations, so make sure you call ahead to reserve it. Le terra was delicious, but we didn’t love the atmosphere inside (besides the view), it was nothing too special.
Trattoria La Tagliata-#1
This restaurant is the place to be in Positano. The whole restaurant is all-inclusive and it is 45 Euro for so much food, wine and dessert. We were OBSESSED with all of their pasta dishes. It is a family run restaurant with music and instruments. This is a must go to! It’s not just for the food, but for the experience. We loved every bit of Tratttoria La Tagliata.
Donna Rosa was the fanciest of the restaurants we went to. The inside is small and you could see into the pristine kitchen to watch the chef’s cook. They also have an outdoor patio if your prefer it. The dishes were incredible and Donna Rosa is perfect for an evening date. We would definitely recommend that you make this a stop on your trip.
Bagni d’Arienzo beach club is a 15 min boat ride from Positano Beach. If you’re traveling during summer or during a busy time of year, the beaches are totally packed. We decided to escape from the public beaches and spend the day at the Bagni d’Arienzo beach club. You can call to reserve chairs (I think it’s something like 12 Euro a chair) and their boat will pick you up with a group in the morning. It was a great way to get away and relax. The food was pretty good too!
Capri is an amazing island that you will not want to miss. There is a ferry that you could take from Positano to Capri that takes about an hour. Once you arrive in Capri- you can go on the beach, take a boat out, walk around the town, or take a chairlift up to the top for the most amazing views. If you have time- I would recommend renting a boat to take you to the Blue Grotto or other similar caves around the island. The Blue Grotto is well known for the beautiful blue water. The cave entrance is so small that you need to switch to a row boat to get inside. We highly recommend @tonynocapri for a boat rental. He was extremely knowledgeable and he brought his own homemade wine! He also has some connections at La Fontelina Beach club if you want to get a reservation there. For Lunch we went to Lo Zodiaco. It was right in the harbor and the food was only ok.
