On my whirlwind 14-day tour of Italy, I’d scheduled only one night in Positano before scheduled to leave the Amalfi Coast for my family’s inland hometown of Ariano Irpino. Of course, that changed as soon as I arrived. Positano begged me to stay, and so my love affair with Positano began.
On arrival, I immediately requested a second night at the Hotel Villa Gabrisa. Because it wasn’t peak season, they were able to accommodate me. I knew right away one night was not enough for this affair.
Getting to Know Positano
For 48 hours, I explored solo what’s traditionally known as a romantic couples’ destination, savoring picturesque moments to myself without regret. I fell in love with Positano. You see, it’s magical, that way. I’ll let my photos tell the story:
Everything Seemed to Thrive
Until We Meet Again
What a wonderful love affair I had with Positano! I was happy to extend my visit the extra day at the Hotel Villa Gabrisa but really could have spent three, four, five days here, taking it all in. It was hard to leave Positano behind, but no doubt, I will return. I may even bring a friend next time.
