A magical area, worthy of a long stay.


On my first European tour, I made friends with a Positano local who took me to ***Trattoria La Tagliata. It stood out as the best meal I’d ever had. Galen was gracious enough to try to find it with me 10 years later – it’s every bit as special as I remembered. Wine from the vineyard out front, produce the same, a mix of meats grilled right in the restaurant. No menu – just what they serve. It’s worth the drive!


Note: parking is challenging everywhere. Some parking above town in Positano. It’s magical and definitely worth a visit. We couldn’t afford to stay at ***Le Sireneuse, but had a truly amazing lunch on their terrace. Very high end.


If staying on the Amalfi Coast again, I’d definitely stay in Ravello. Higher end, touristy by day but clears out at night, stunning.

Vietri Sul Mari

I would not recommend staying in Vietri – more of a drive through spot. Our hotel was very pretty, but the town is minimal and has very few eating options.

  • Hotel: **Volce del Mare: Via Costiera Amalfitana, 21 – 84019 Vietri sul Mare
  • In Vietri Sul Mare the ceramics factory is called ***Solimene. Right in the center of town.  Classic “peasant” design pottery including great serving pieces.
