Travel Blogs from Positano
We're still a few days behind in the blog, so this one will be quite a long one about our time in Southern Italy before we set off for the big trip up to Vienna.
On Sunday we set off down and across to the Eastern coast of Italy to fulfil one of our big aims of the trip; to find and pay our respects to Glenda’s uncle; Joe Williams, …
Positano. Just south from Naples. The roads are very narrow, the busses big - very little space for error. We've seen many a car and bus with scratches and dings where they didn't miss... The road towards Positano is beautiful, and frightening winding with a cliff face on the one side, and a deadly drop on the other. Stacy watched in horror as the …
... extender! So we were decked out decently, although kurt was sad it wasn't the to the extent of last cruise! After dinner we went to play the pirate game where Kurt was first mate. Karl really wanted to see Million Dollar Arm since Adam had old him it was good, so here I am again sacrificing for the children sitting in the theater with him while Kurt and mark are at then pirate party up on deck. After the movie karl and I met them up on deck for the end of the pirate party - we ...
... fruit, cakes and a cream puff drenched in chocolate. And of course, the signature digestif of Positano, limoncello.
At some point a second bottle of wine arrived which we barely touched but we were able to take it with us. We left feeling full and extremely satisfied.
But alas, we were able to burn off half of our meal just getting home. 65 stairs up from the restaurant and the 220 up to Mamma Rosa. We had noticed earlier a lot of seeds on the steps, like the willow ...
... more could you want. Next stop was a visit to Herculaneum buried under 20 feet of hot volcanic ash in 79AD. Situated in the shadows of Mt Vesuvius it lay largely undiscovered until the 1700's and remains 75% still buried to this day..

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday House Gilda Positano
We were lucky enough to stay at Gilda's for 3 nights. What a place; the rooms are modest but with everything you need, the views are stunning and Gilda, Rosa and Giuseppe just want to do everything to make your stay the best it can be.
Gilda's is out of Positano, but that's not a problem - there are bus stops only about 30 metres away. We were happy to walk in each day, it's about 2 km down into the town (no footpaths but we felt quite safe)
The beach is nice, and we really enjoyed our daily swims (and the 300 steps to get down there)
The Amalfi coast - what can we say - Fantastico!!!!
We've just done 9.5 weeks of holiday and stayed in some great places but this is the best. Rosa, Gilda and the rest of her family make it special. Stay here.....
