Breanna Rose | The Amalfi Coast, Italy

During our stay in Rome, we took a long day trip to The Amalfi Coast (and Pompeii), a place I’ve always wanted to visit. We booked this trip through Viator so that we didn’t have to worry about transporting ourselves there, something that I was grateful for. Plus, we had a guide along for the ride which made for interesting times. ;) We drove the entire Amalfi Coast road (which freaked out my Australian bus neighbors since they are used to driving on the other side of the road) along beautiful cliffs and stopped in the towns of Amalfi and Positano, my absolute favorite being the latter.

Because we didn’t have much time on the coast (seriously only about an hour), I don’t really have any recommendations to share other than to wander + get lost. These towns are so small that it’s easy to see most of it in a short period of time and find your way back to the main drag when need be. At one point in Positano, I saw a small staircase that lead straight down the side of a cliff, so I decided to follow it and see what happened. With my friends staying at the top, I skipped down the steps and stumbled upon some of the most beautiful home facades I’ve ever seen. The buildings were painted in all sorts of pastels, covered with plants, and featured unique architecture after every turn. I kept going and going, most likely trespassing, but enjoying my little adventure nonetheless.

While we were adventuring along The Amalfi Coast, I saw many backpackers who were most likely hiking between towns, something that I’ve been dying to do for awhile. I mean, how cool would that be? YES PLEASE. Because that way, you can literally eat all the pasta and gelato you want without feeling terribly guilty.

If you ever get a chance (even just a few hours), The Amalfi Coast is an absolutely breathtaking place to visit and take in. I would love to spend more time there, or even check out Cinque Terre (another coastal area). So we’ll see what happens! Until next time … ♥

    Ah, so envious!
    I’m here in rainy Belgium and, reading your post, I dream about home… Enjoy your trip!
    (And just eat loads of pasta and gelato ’cause, I mean, it’s Italy, you just have to.)
    Have fun!

  2. I’ve never done the Almafi Coast, but I can imagine how beautiful it is! Your photos help, too. :) I HIGHLY recommend Cinque Terre. That I have done, and I will surely never forget it.

    We traveled for 3 weeks in November-The Amalfi Coast was mostly shuttered in for winter so we went to Cinque Terre-so amazing! I would definitely recommend it for your next trip!
