Saturday, 30th August – Amalfi Coast and Positano

Ah, the Amalfi Coast. It has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. Today was the day that we would explore it a lot more.

The first thing that needs to be said is the bad side of this area – the streets are really narrow. It does seem like a really small thing, and it is. The reason I mention it is because we had a pretty big car and had a lot of challenges and pretty scary moments on the drive today. However, if we had a tiny little Fiat (like most people do), a three wheeled ute (so awesome, cute and everywhere) or a motorbike, it would not have been a problem at all.

The good side, however, is fantastic! The view on every corner of the coast as you drive around is spectacular. It is difficult to take photos, but there are spots where you can stop from time to time to snap a fews pics. But, don’t take me word for it, have a look at the photos we did manage to grab on the drive.

The main area we explored on foot was around Positano. Parking was difficult, but not impossible – it just involved LOTS of stairs. Positano is mostly focused around its beautiful beach at the bottom of the hills filled with shops and hotels.

This is a fantastic place to explore, but should come with a big stair warning (I actually counted 506 stairs to get back to the car). It is worth it as these pictures show.


After spending hours walking around and enjoying this beautiful part of the world it was time for us to head back to get ready for our huge day in Pompeii tomorrow.
