After wandering around for a bit, we sat down to a delicious lunch of pizza and caprese salad. After lunch, we stumbled upon a tiny wine shop with this sign out front. The very helpful and knowledgeable woman served sample after sample of italian wines with cheese and chocolate to boot. We left feeling quite nice
^^After being dropped off by our shuttle in front of Bar Internazionale, we made our way up to our AirBnb in Montepertuso, a little village directly above Positano. The view from our Balcony was spectacular.
^^The views during our hike down from Montepertuso were absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend making this hike regardless of where you stay. After winding your way down the cliffside, you exit out this little passageway right into the heart of Positano.
Every direction you look in this beautiful cliffside town is a million dollar view. The beach is getting closer!
^Before heading down to the beach, grab some cold drinks and antipasti from a restaurant or deli. This deli was our go to for delicious vegetables and fresh made param and smoked mozzarella sandwiches.
Fornillo Beach, just a short walk from Spiaggia Grande, is a less crowded, more laid back atmosphere.
We made reservations at Le Sirenuse hotel for a special birthday dinner. Between the views, the food, and the exceptional service, La Sponda restaurant was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. If you do go, I would advise going an hour early to enjoy a glass of champagne at the Oyster Bar across the restaurant. They serve the most delicious bright green olives as well as marcona almonds and potato chips with your drinks. It is the perfect before dinner snack.
What a great weekend in Michigan. Traverse City and Glen Arbor are so beautiful.
We started our first day off with a bang at the highly recommended restaurant The Towne Plaza.
^^The food did not disappoint. Look at those plates!
^^We were pleasantly surprised by the absolutely spot on naming of this park Photo op was a must. Traverse City may be small, but it’s full of cute shops and wonderful restaurants. Unfortunately we didn’t get photos of everything, but a few other places not to miss while visiting:
The Village at Grand Traverse Commons: a;lskdjfa;lskdjfal;
The Cook’s House: Hand’s down the best meal of the trip.
