Positano is a village along the Amalfi Coast and is mainly in an enclave in the hills leading down to the coast. After our hike through Sentiero Degli Dei (Path of the Gods), we had less than half a day to explore Positano. Thankfully Positano is not a very huge place so we managed to cover it quickly (hence this will be a very short travelogue).
P.S. This is a scheduled post as I’m currently away on holiday! I’m coming home in a few more days, but I’ve scheduled a few more posts before I’m back, so do subscribe to the mailing list, or follow my Facebook Page so that you will never miss a recipe or travelogue! Thank you for visiting and leaving behind sweet comments! My apologies as I won’t be able to visit your blogs during this period.

As Positano is an enclave in the hills, this means there are crazy amount of steps and stairs throughout this small town. We climbed all the way down to the beach for some photos. The beach is popular during the summer with beach goers, but in April, it’s just a quiet little piece of haven for the dog above.
We then climbed all the way back up and wait for sunset – before climbing more flights of stairs back to our BnB – it was a very tiring day!
For dinner, we headed to Il Grottino Azzurro, a restaurant and pizzeria located just a few minutes walk away from our BnB. It is reputedly a simple place serving simple food for locals – the exact kind of place that I’m always looking for when I’m on holiday – simple, no-frills, good and delicious food. We originally wanted to dine there, but it was full house, so we took away a pizza and a dessert instead. There was a mini-mart next door so we went there to grab our drinks.
The pizza crust is crisp, thin and chewy with generous servings of meat. The idea of putting French fries on pizza intrigued us – and it was surprisingly very delicious!

Breakfast at BnB was served to us in the room – and we could have had it on the balcony but it was simply too cold! So I quickly snapped a photo then brought the tray of food back in – weird things food photographers do huh?
Since we only stayed in Positano for one night, that’s all for this place!
