Exploring Positano and Ravello in my Chicwish lace dress

The side streets of Positano are magical and usually empty, so you feel like you’re in your own little hidden world.

In order to have the amazing view of our apartment, it does mean we have to walk down literally hundreds of steps to the bottom of Positano. But totally worth it, plus the added bonus of working off all the pizza and pasta!

I’m a sucker for patting the local cats in every country we visit! Makes me miss my Lilycat. πŸ™

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram and Insta StoriesΒ you’ll know that we have moved from Rome to Positano on the Amalfi Coast. We took a train to Salerno and then the ferry to Positano, and I couldn’t recommend the ferry more! It is a very peaceful and scenic way of seeing a large part of the Amalfi Coast and easier with the luggage than the bus. The only problem is we arrived at the bottom of Positano with hundreds of steps up to our apartment. There was a bus, but it was completely full with people standing and we had 4 pieces of luggage! So we paid 25 euros for a taxi and it was worth every penny.

We are staying in an AirBnB apartment, and it is very pretty and quaint with a gorgeous grassed terrace and view of Positano. We’re staying 5 nights here as we really wanted to relax and soak up with atmosphere. The town is stunning and without 4 pieces of luggage the stairs are a bit tough, but definitely manageable.

Yesterday we took a day trip to the towns of Amalfi and Ravello. I have to say, I wasn’t a fan of the buses. Firstly, don’t bother looking at the timetable- Italian buses run on their own schedule! It took about an hour on the bus to Amalfi and with the winding roads along the cliffs and the bus packed with people, I felt very sick. The ferry is much more enjoyable and runs on time! (Although a little pricier)

Amalfi was lovely (similar to Positano, but not as nice, I think!) although I was just looking for lemonade to settle my stomach after the bus trip! We took another bus trip to Ravello (shorter and less winding!) and this was definitely worth a visit! Ravello is a mountain medieval-looking town, so is completely different to Positano and Amalfi. If you do visit Ravello, make sure you check out Villa Rufolo- it is a special curated garden where they have been holding concerts on the cliffs for 80 years. Although there were no concerts on when we visited, they were playing piano music in the gardens which added to the atmosphere!

We have 2 more nights in Positano before we move on to Florence! Enjoying every minute of this trip. <3 If anyone is visiting this area, feel free to ask any questions!

  1. Your photos are amazing and I so wish I could of went on a trip like this. I can’t wait to go back to Italy as a fashion blogger. I didn’t know what I was missing out on a few years ago when I studied abroad. Also you look to cute in this outfit and the earring go so perfectly.
