We fell in love with the French island of Corsica last year, so it was only a matter of time (and monitoring of Easy Jet ticket prices) before we journeyed to its Italian neighbor. Sardinia is absolutely gorgeous — one look at the turquoise blue waters in the photos below and I’m sure you’ll agree — and it took a serious amount of self control to resist the urge to extend our visit.
Our six-day Italian adventure ended in the beautiful cliffside city of Positano, where we spent two glorious days relaxing on the beach and getting our fill of fresh Italian food. We arrived late Saturday afternoon on a ferry from the port of Capri (first photo below) and hiked our way up through the town until we found the Hotel Savoia, which turned out to be completely charming. We loved the painted tiles covering the floors and the beautiful view of the city and coastline from our large balcony, and were delighted that we were offered a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine for our anniversary. We spent the evening perusing the maze of shops and then enjoyed a very tasty pasta dinner near the hotel at Ristorante Max.
