Modesta's Positano

Positano on the Amalfi Coast is one of the finest, prettiest places on earth. Its authenticity and picturesque landscapes are such a lovely sight that they will remain with you long after you return home, as you settle back into your everyday life. Its pull on your memories will create somewhat of an nostalgic ache that will beckon you back to La Dolce Vita.

Amalfi Coast

From the first time I saw Positano, it gave me a feeling of wonderment and contentment as I gazed upon the pleasant seaside village, bathing in all of its beauty from the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. I loved soaking in every delightful minute. I couldn’t help but think of how the hands that built this town were hands of passion and creativity. Little did the sculptors know that years will pass but nothing will change except for the people who will visit and writers like me that will be inspired by the beauty of Positano’s architectural masterpiece. 

Positano on the Amalfi Coast

Positano is watched over by the church of Santa Maria marking this town as its own with its unique colorful dome. It is surrounded by clusters of houses, hotels and villas painted in whites, apricots and salmons. The view is nothing short of spectacular and so easy to fall in love with.

It would be remiss of me not to also mention the exceptional foods, wines and creations from the many restaurant’s that will welcome you to try them. You will find that perhaps it is completely natural to have ongoing conversations on how the different combinations of flavors, and aromas have seduced your senses and reenergised your soul. I believe that falling in love with a place is like falling in love with a person. You crave that love simply because it makes you feel so alive.

Positano through the ages has maintained all that is good. From the first moment I saw this gem of a town it took my breath away. The thing that I love the most about Italy is the anticipation of finding these little treasures and encounters that resonate with my heart. I sometimes feel like an inquisitive child always wanting to learn more and more. It has captured my attention like no other place on earth.

View over Positano

The breathtaking sights and the magical essence of Italy will leave you feeling deeply exhilarated. I would recommend that you only travel with those you love. Those fortunate few that you choose to experience this with because they, like you, will be consumed with the magic of wanderlust and all that is sweet about Bella Italia.
