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.....

... sound. We awoke much less eventfully at 7 am for a day trip to Capri ideally to see the blue grotto. We purchased round trip boat rides to Capri. K and I were a bit better on this trip although it was supposed to be a 25 min ride which was instead 40 min. We quickly went to the TI (tourist info desk) to see how to buy blue grotto tickets, but the water and winds were too rough today, so it was closed. We opted instead to take the funiculare up ...
... scenery. Our captain, Davide, was very outgoing and funny (and yes, short dark and relatively handsome). He began the day by explaining where we would be going (in English) and then he approached me and began to repeat the same thing in Italian. Of course, I loved that but had to tell him, no I don't speak Italian. I wish I had a picture of Dave scowling in the background during that exchange, lol. So it was a ...
We woke up around 8 Am and grabbed some breakfast at the hotel (it was included). The breakfast was not the best. They had a couple of good items (the cheese, one of the cakes, and hard boiled eggs), the other items were pretty bad (yoghurt, old fruit, all the other cakes). We ate though, since it was free then headed to a nearby grocery store to grab some waters before we explored the old city of Pompeii.
After stocking up on 3 waters for our busy day in the ...
... flapped his wings and flew up and low and landed back on the sea past the surf line for another swim.
After our lunch in the shade and a quick look around we hiked back up the steep steps to the bus stop passing yet another load of tourists on the way down. There was a group of 4 large English around our age debating lunch and in a strong not so posh accent an over rotund male said "there must be a Macky Dees there somewhere". Oh my gosh ...
... the scrappy abandoned chapels in the back alleys… and as we walk we talk. Emaddine tells me of how he quit his studies in Dubai to go fight for the freedom of his country when the people rose up against Gaddafi. He told me of a shocking twist of events which left him feeling betrayed and disillusioned… he told me of how he came here to Italy just to try to get away from it all and try to make sense of what happened. ...
