And the adventure continues… I must admit that the west coast of Italy is like a dream. My dream… The sea views, colourful houses, lots of ice cream. What else could I ask for?
Day 3 of our Italy road trip: After a long journey throughout the outback, we arrived to a beautiful city of Salerno in the evening. We stayed in B&B near the sea which was super cute and affordable (14 Leoni).We went for a night stroll later, had some pizza or pasta (can´t remember) on the main promenade and enjoyed a romantic walk next to the sea.
You would never believe that this city was founded many years BC. Salerno seems like a modern touristy place. It has a vibrant centre, lots of restaurants and cafes, beautiful long beaches and primarily amazing ceramics factories. Tyrrhenian sea and the port in Salerno.Picturesque tiles everywhere… So pretty!I have to buy a magnet everywhere I go as a souvenir. And these ones are all handmade in the local factory.When life gives you lemons… Especially the Italian ones:)Make a lemonade or just eat them! The quality and taste is incomparably better, all fresh and local fruit and veggies. It is also super affordable, this is what I call: My kind of paradise:)When speaking about paradise… (Day 4: Amalfi and Positano)Amalfi and Positano are towns right next to each other, quite similar actually… But I chose to see Positano because it had been on my bucket list (thanks to Instagram) for a while. We came around lunch time and it was already packed with tourists which is kind of obvious but I was still hoping it would not be that bad. You need to leave a car quite far from the beach and then take loooots of stairs to get to the bottom where all the narrow streets, shops and restaurants are.We found this amazing spot by an accident, but I could not be happier. Perfect for seing all in once (sea, town, beach, everything).The houses are built on the reefs which creates a beautiful view. But I guess, I would not want to go up and down every day:D…I found this insta-pinky corner for a photo in my new dress from Salerno.And also a pink house… Obviously…And some pink ibiscus:)And this sleeping cutie on the stairs:)The beach was overcrowded so we only stayed there for an hour or so and had some snack. I wanted to see the typical shops and buy a magnet, of course.And when I saw all of this beautiful ceramics with lemon deco, I wanted to buy a house and decorate it straight away:D. This table was simply love at the first sight… I am planning to buy it one day and put it in my dining room.
Overall, Positano was amazing and I am really glad we had a chance to see it. The prices are much higher than in Salerno of course but place as such is definitely worth it. If you want to know more about our road trip and where we went next, stay tuned for another blog post…
