    Amalfiküste - Positano

    June 8 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Früh morgens klingelte der Wecker, denn nach dem durchwachsenen Wetter gestern ging es in 4,5 std. und 350 km an die andere Seite Italiens. An die wunderschöne Amalfiküste und hier warben sie mit dem Land, in dem die Zitronen blühen! Und so viel können wir vorab versprechen, es wurde nicht zu viel versprochen.
    Startpunkt für uns war Salerno, welches von den Schnellstraßen aus angefahren wurde und von hier aus hatten wir 15 km entlang der atemberaubenden Amalfiküste bis zu unserem Zielort Positano.
    Kurvenreich, eng und voller Überraschungen fuhr man hier teilweise direkt entlang von Hauseingängen der kleinen Örtchen.
    Hinter jeder Ecke warteten Zitronenhändler, entgegenkommende Busse, Radfahrer, ungeduldige Rollerfahrer und traumhafte Aussichten! Nirgends macht Cabriofahrten mehr Spaß und bietet mehr Freiheitsgefühl als hier! Auch wenn diese 15km mehr Energie und Aufmerksamkeit verlangten, als die gesamte vorherige Strecke! 😅
    Doch bevor es in Richtung B&B ging fuhren wir nach Ravello. Dies ist ein kleiner Ort zwischen Salerno und Amalfi, von wo aus die Adeligen in prunkvollen Villen mit riesigen Gärten ein gar nicht so schlechten Ausblick auf die Küste genießen durften und von der UNESCO als Weltkulturerbe ernannt wurde. Um diese zu erreichen ging es ca 500 meter in Serpentinen hoch und oben wartete ein süßer Dorfkern, welcher mit kleinen Cafés bestückt. Fast verhungert nahmen wir in einem dieser Cafés platz und aßen kurz vor der Mittagszeit ein hervorragendes Panini zum Frühstück. Nach der Stärkung liefen wir durch den berühmten Guiardini di Ravello und hatten dort einen bezaubernden Ausblick über die Amalfiküste. Der kurze Stopp hat sich also mehr als gelohnt!
    Gestärkt und mit ersten Eindrücken und schönen Ausblicken bereichert ging es weiter in Richtung unserem Airbnb in Positano. Der Ort liegt fast malerisch in mitten eines Berges direkt an der Küste. So wirklich traumhaft war das Koffertragen allerdings nicht und entpuppte sich als ordentliche Herausforderung. Unsere Bleibe befand sich in einer kleinen versteckten Gasse, eingekreist von Treppen, die wir erstmal finden mussten. Als wir dann endlich klatschnass angekamen, wurden wir von der Aussicht von unserem Balkon aus mehr als belohnt. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt zogen allerdings schon ordentliche Wolken auf. Sie hingen spektakulär in den Bergen, aber scheuchten uns vom Balkon zurück in die Wohnung. Wir sind von einem kurzen Schauer ausgegangen und machten uns bereit den Ort zu erkunden. Leider kamen diese Schauer immer wieder. Wir hielten an einem kleinen Café und genossen unseren ersten Limoncello Spritz. Spritzig ging das vor allem direkt in den Kopf 😄
    Dennoch erkundeten wir den Strand und gingen in einem kleinen Laden einzelne Köstlichkeiten für das Abendessen kaufen. Den Abend ließen wir dann mit einer guten selbstgemachten Pasta und einem Vino Rosso aus der Region auf dem Balkon ausklingen, genossen die Sicht und schmiedeten Pläne für die nächsten Tage.

    Amalfi Coast

    August 2 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Heute sind wir früh aufgestanden weil wir eine Wanderung vor hatten. Wir gingen den Pfad der Götter 🧜🏼‍♂️auf dem der Legende nach Zeus zu den Sirenen abgestiegen ist. Es war eine traumhafte Wanderung mit dem Ziel Positano. Positano ist eine sehr idyllische Hafenstadt, welche für ihre bunten Häuser bekannt ist. Nach einem Essen mit Top-Ausblick gings dann zurück zum Ausgangsort mit dem Schiff und dem Bus.Read more

    Amalfi Coast

    August 27, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    After our lazy day yesterday we were up early and back on the local train back to Naples to meet up with our tour bus that would take us along the Amalfi Coast. They call the road Mama Mia, as it is skinny and windy and when you watch the way the buses navigate the tight corners and windy road.

    The scenery was amazing and our first stop was Positano which is a beautiful village with it’s narrow winding paths down to the beach. Shame we only got an hour here, but we would love to come back and explore the coast. Pete couldn’t resist a swim in the Mediterranean. Then it was back on the bus and off to Amalfi where we hopped on a boat and cruised the coast checking out the beaches and the celebrity houses along the coast. We found a boat that looks like the one we should have! Haha!

    We then had lunch at a restaurant on the beach and had yum seafood Spaghetti and a new drink, a lemon spritz using limoncello, Prosecco, soda and limone gelati, very yum and refreshing.

    Our last stop was Revalla (not how you spell it) where there was fantastic views of the coastline and some wonderful ceramic showrooms. Pete nearly had a table shipped home!

    I took a travel sickness tablet (due to windy roads) and so I slept all the way back to Naples. A great taste of the Amalfi Coast and definitely a place we would like to go back to.

    When we got back to the apartment we cooled off in the tiny pool in the garden of our BnB and made another platter that we ate overlooking the garden. We went upstairs to the terrace and watched the sunset. A great end to a wonderful day, our last night in Italy! Off to Greece tomorrow.

    Day 28 - Path of the Gods (for Tim)

    October 7, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Today was a fairly uneventful and relaxing day for me. I woke up, had breakfast, walked the long windy road through Positano, checked out the city center and shops, then laid out on a chair at the main beach and read my book for awhile. Then I got a sandwich at a cafe overlooking the sea and headed back to the B&B for a nap.

    Tim, on the other hand, had a very long and eventful day. He woke up, had breakfast, and set off for the famous Path of the Gods hike through the Amalfi Coast. It took a few hours, lots of walking, and two crazy bus rides to get to the start in Bomerano. He met a couple of friends and they set off for the 8 km or so walk. He said it was definitely the coolest hike he has ever done and that the views were amazing. The hike ends at Nocelle, a small town at the top of Positano, and then he walked the long road back home.

    (The walk is apparently not for anyone with severe fear of heights or vertigo...that's why I didn't go. I went back and forth for months whether I was going to do it. But I'm glad I didn't. Tim said there were definitely parts where I would have panicked.)

    Even though Tim was exhausted, we went out for our last Positano dinner. We split a cheese and meat plate with jelly, lobster pasta, and grilled sea bass. Yum!

    Day 26 - Positano Arrival!

    October 5, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Wow! Positano is stunning.

    After checking out of our bed and breakfast in Anacapri, we caught the (wrong) bus down to the Capri marina (followed by a taxi to the right place) to catch our quick 25 minute ferry to Positano on the Amalfi Coast. After we arrived at the Positano port, I saw our arrival message from our host, telling us to take a taxi or bus to the B&B. I looked the address up on Apple Maps and it said 0.3 miles, 7 minute walk...

    Tim gets a quick shot of espresso (bad idea!!) and we begin the walk (with about 30 pounds on our backs). Well...this 0.3 mile walk is essentially a hike up 400+ steep steps into a completely vertical cliff in the blazing sun. With no water. And without the phone navigation working, so I was pretty sure we were also lost. BUT...then we saw the B&B sign at our entrance...we made it!!

    Our awesome host gave us some water and let us settle in. This is the best place we have stayed by far. Our view of the cliffs and the buildings and the water is amazing. Of the 4 rooms in the B&B, ours is the only one with a private terrace. We also have a sitting area on the main terrace. The views are incredible.

    We caught our breath, changed into our bathing suits, and walked down the 400 (now easy) steps to the Fornillo beach. We had an awesome lunch on the beach, then got some chairs and an umbrella. I started a new book, Tim went for a quick swim, and we laid out in the sun for a couple of hours. We returned to our room to relax for awhile and to rinse off. Then we had some wine on our beautiful terrace and got ready for dinner. Our dinner was at a beautiful restaurant on the side of a cliff (as everything is here) - a bottle of Amalfi white wine, a pear and walnut salad to split, sea bass for Tim, and clam pumpkin ravioli for me, followed by tiramisu and decaf espresso. Amazing.

    Now, back to my book!! Goodnight!!

    Stop in Torre del Greco - Amalfiküste

    October 29, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    U: Torre del Greco selbst hat so rein gar nichts zu bieten, ist aber optimaler Ausgangspunkt um die Amalfiküste und die berühmten Ausgrabungen von Pompei anzuschauen. Da wir aktuell Beide keine großen Lust mehr auf Text haben ... schaut die Bilder 😋😁😁Read more

    Day 27 - Positano Beach Day

    October 6, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Today was a much needed relaxing beach day. After breakfast on the terrace, we climbed down to the beach. We got some chairs and laid out for about 6 hours. Tim went for a long swim, which included a small cave swim and jumping off of some rocks. I just read all day! We had an awesome lunch on the beach - mussels and clams for me and sea bass for Tim! After the beach, we hiked back up to our room for a few hours of more relaxing, this time in bed with the beautiful views of the cliffside outside our terrace. We finished the day with a wonderful dinner - prosciutto and melon to start, spaghetti with clams for Tim, spaghetti with shrimp for me, and tiramisu for dessert! Yum!Read more

    Curses! We were foiled

    March 17, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    We've been waiting for a nice day and for the haze to clear so we could drive down the famously beautiful Amalfi coast. Weather was nice but haze was TERRIBLE. Hoping it might improve a bit south, we struck out for adventure. It just got worse. When we could barely see Positano from the viewpoint above, we turned around.

    We had fun poking around our little town though. We have two more days to try. In the meantime e found the best bakery in town.

    My best photo of the trip (except for the finger in the top corner). The haze got worse as we drove on.

    The scenery is is stunning even in the haze. We were in Hawaii for 17 days and some of those days had haze like this from the Volcano there. Does put a damper on a sunny day that's for sure!
