... island of Capri. The traditional way to tour the towns of Amalfi is by a bus trip along the terrifying cliffs, or a ferry. In fact most people travel one direction by bus and then the other by boat to get both experiences. This had been our plan until dinner that night. What really sold us on renting the boat was that they stopped at several spots around Capri, dropped anchor and went swimming at their leisure.
So the next morning we found ourselves at the ...
This past weekend we experienced our much-anticipated excursion to southern Italy. After an exhausting train ride to Naples, an angering taxi ride (where our driver dropped us off at the wrong place and begged for a tip), and scenic ferry ride to Sorrento, we finally arrived at our hostel. After settling in, we took yet another mode of transportation by using the bus to get to the small coastal town of Positano. The 45 minute bus ride included weaving around mountains on ...
... The diets will have to wait until we return home, as the food here is just too good!
Having seen Amalfi town and Sorrento, we think we made the best choice to spend most of our
time on the Amalfi Coast here. The best times are early in the morning and early evening, when the throngs of day trippers have left and there are more locals around. It really is quite a charming place.
Ciao for now.
... strolled along the beach and then up a 100 steps to a windy road that leads to the neighouring beach and then along to the town. Then we wallked along a winding road up to our hotel, luckily we didn't have to return by the steps.
Everywhere we have gone we have found friendly locals to help us with directions, so that has been really lovely.
We travelled from Rome to Salerno by train to the south of Italy, to Salerno, then by ferry to positano, we saw ...
... it. There is still a lot of tourists around as the weather is still warm, but it is not too crowded. The beach has dark, gravelly sand and the water is a clean deep blue. There is still plenty of deck chairs lined up waiting for those still trying to catch some sun. I can't wait to have a swim tomorrow but for us, we are calling it quits early as I am absolutely shattered.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Posa Posa Positano
A small jewel!
I spent the third week in May on the Amalfi Coast of which two days were spent in Positano. The hotel was recommended to me by the manager of my bed and breakfast in Sorrento, so I felt comfortable in his word. Well, what I found was close to heaven. Short and sweet, the hotel was perfect! Location, cleanlinesss and hospitality were all the way it should be. The room was spacious and nicely decorated and the view was absolutely postcard perfect from our terrace. While not cheap, if you're looking for a hotel that accentuates the pleasure of visiting Positano, make this the one. While it is not a 5 star, it absolutely is at the top end of 3 stars, and I don't hesitate in recommending it.
Posa Posa was wonderful!
From the time we first e-mailed the Posa Posa Hotel to ask for information and availability, we were charmed! Angelo immediately answered with a special offer, and contacted us again a few weeks later.
When we (five couples) made the decision to book at Posa Posa, Angelo and other staff members became our source of information for restaurant recommendations, info on what would and would be closed (in February), and transportation for daytrips. e-mails were answered promptly.
Our rooms were lovely, new and clean (junior suites), and the balconies had wonderful views of both the sea and the town. Breakfast was very good, and served in a lovely room.
Posa Posa added greatly to our wonderful memories of Positano!
Worth the price!!
Breathtaking views, excellent service. Let the staff make your reservation for Capri (the boats load up fast). Breakfast is superb.
Served graciously on the terrace overlooking the city and the sea. If you like to walk, its a distance to the beach, but the bus runs every 10 minutes , costs only 1 euro and stops at the front door. While at the beach look for the Chez Black restaurant. The dining experience that you came here for unfolds on your table. Only the angels eat better. Try the grilled sea bass (best I've ever had). Tell the owner (Salvatore Russo) what you think of the meal. He'll probably send over a glass of Lemoncello. Enjoy every minute. life's too short.
Lovely.This hotel is a small gem. Beautiful views from beautiful rooms and run by a helpful and courteous staff. Yes, it's a little expensive but it's Positano, a siren's cry from Amalfi, Ravello, and Capri.Situated at the top of Via Pasitea, prepare yourself for long, leisurely walks down to the beach. Stop along the way for some pizza, biscotti, or a gelato, but don't hurry back up.This is paradise minus the pool, but that's nitpicking. Posa Posa is peaceful, tasteful, and close to perfect.
A Room with a View
The view from our room was worth the expense. The staff at Hotel Posa Posa was extremely courteous, helpful, and reliable. The bathroom was large and clean. The view from the restaurant of the hotel was beautiful.
This was a very comfortable hotel.
Hotel Posa Posa....
This hotel has the most magnificant views inclusive of the restaurant on the 4th floor where breakfast is served daily. I also liked the fact that it was not in the center of town, personally enjoying the walks to and from the beach. I have one valid dissatisfaction, I do not think that my room was as clean as it could (and should) have been (though the terrace view was spectacular). I had a junior suite with a jacuzzi and felt that the cleanliness (of the bathroom in particular) was more than lacking thus not wanting to utilize the jacuzzi. If this situation was to be (and should be) greatly improved I certainly would recommend this hotel as it really is quite lovely and a great value.
Quite a hike
2 couples spent 3 nights at the hotel posa posa in june. The hotel has just undergone a major renovation and it is really spotless and beautifully decorated. We were upgraded to a junior suite at no extra charge and the room was beautiful. The breakfast setting on a terrace was lovely as well. The hotel is away from the beach and on the one hand that is a blessing because it was quiet, on the other hand it is a long walk to the beach and town. Our only complaint which soured the stay a little, was that on the day of checkout we were offered a late checkout so that we could shower before leaving for the airport, and then unbeknownst to us charged a $50.00 service fee! Sort of left a bad taste in our mouths
