"Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone." - John Steinbeck

Riding around in style!

There's holes in the walls to allow the tree branches to snake inside and grow along the ceiling


Incredible lunch views

Ha! Excellent photos. I've heard of Positano because Giada de Laurentiis does her show from there, I think, and never shuts up about it. lol I see why.

I got married in Praiano, which is the little distant town in your 3rd photo (my wife’s family is from there). It’s really really hard to find a more pleasant place in the world. We’ve got the family house booked in October. So looking forward to going back.
