Wander through the narrow cobblestone streets, marvel at the mediaeval architecture, and take a moment to soak in the lively atmosphere before paying a visit to the stunning Duomo, a grand masterpiece that will leave you in awe. Before you do anything else, fuel up on espresso at the Bar Francese on the square outside, then head to lunch.
For the classics, Trattoria da Gemma should be your go-to. An upscale eatery known for its traditional Amalfi Coast dishes and expansive terrace, it’s smart without feeling fussy, and serves excellent food all-around. Try the local specialty, “Scialatielli ai Frutti di Mare,” a heavenly pasta dish with fresh seafood, then ask for the catch of the day, which is always delicious.
In the afternoon, hop on a boat and sail along the coastline to the captivating town of Positano. Prepare to have your breath stolen away by the vibrant houses clinging to the cliffs like a flock of colourful birds, and to fall even harder for the historic centre’s uber charming streets, filled boutiques and art galleries. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a pair of handmade sandals – the whole region is especially known for its leather footwear craft, as artisans like Mario d’Ischia attest.
Still have a little stamina left? Then embark on a boat excursion from the Positano dock to the enchanting Grotta delle Matera, an intriguing cave that awaits your exploration, or the cove of Marina di Crapolla, where ancient Roman villa ruins grace the sandy shores.
Ristorante La Sponda, nestled in the heart of Positano, is your last stop of the day – and a pretty romantic way to wrap things up. The restaurant will pamper your taste buds with a delectable menu of Mediterranean flavours and impeccable service in a setting lit up by hundreds flickering candles, for a truly enchanting atmosphere.
