Photo Gallery: Positano Italy

48 Hours in Positano Italy

I’d scheduled only one night in Positano before I’d leave the Amalfi Coast for my family’s inland hometown of Ariano Irpino. That changed as soon as I arrived.

Positano begged me to stay.

The private balcony on the third floor with sweeping views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, colorful homes chiseled into the mountainside architecturally reminiscent of Greek influence, and small shops with handmade linen dresses.

How could I possibly say no?

I immediately requested a second night at the Hotel Villa Gabrisa. Because it was the off-season, they were able to accommodate. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been so lucky.

Going Solo

For 48 hours, I explored solo what’s traditionally known as a couples’ destination, savoring picturesque moments to myself without regret.

I only wish I had more time to capture beautiful Positano on camera. Perhaps next time, because I know I’ll be going back.

      Thank you, Medha! I love my iPhone 7 Plus…I upgraded before my trip for that reason alone. 😉

    It’s certainly very beautiful, just as I remember. I enjoyed the photos, although it would have been nice to have had some backstory to a few of them.

    Positano looks so dreamy! I’ve seen so many pictures of Positano on Instagram and I really must plan a visit one day. Very picturesque with the cute white houses set in the mountain. Your pictures are fantastic! : )

      Monika, I can honestly say that the brevity of my time in Positano was a regret! When I planned the trip, I wanted to hit as many places in Italy on my bucket list. I’d scheduled an overnight stopover in Positano, but once I got there, I couldn’t bring myself to leave the next day! I extended my stay to another night, but was still torn about leaving. I think I could have stayed there forever…

    I was not so much aware of Positano before. Your post looks good, especially the pictures. Positano has to be in my list during my Italy vacay.

      Thanks you, Shreya! If you can make it to Positano and the Amalfi Coast during your visit, I think you would enjoy it!
