Today’s post continues our honeymoon travel series! I’m going to go a little out of order here, but on our seventh day of our honeymoon, we checked out of our hotel in Rome and took the speed train from Roma Termini (Rome) to Napoli Centrale (Naples). We booked our tickets the night before we left Rome using this site, riding the Frecciarossa train. Once there, we took a private taxi service to our final destination, which was our hotel in Meta. I cannot remember the company we used for our private taxi but do remember it was about 50 euros each person.
The seventh day of our honeymoon was spent roaming around Rome one last time, traveling to the coast, and exploring Sorrento, which was just a short bus ride from our hotel in Meta.
The next morning we headed out for Positano. I’ll share more on why we didn’t want to stay in Positano later. To get to Positano from our hotel, we took the public transit train in Meta to the Sorrento and then jumped on this bus. From where we were staying, it was only about a 45 minute ride to Positano.
So we spent the 8th day of our honeymoon in Positano. We ate lemon gelato out of a giant fresh lemon. We walked up and down the hills, climbed all the stairs, and tried to see every nook and cranny of the picturesque town.
Although I thought Positano was beautiful, I also think it’s a little overrated. The hotels, food, and shopping are way more expensive because it’s a huge tourist attraction. The colorful hillside is great to explore and look at, but the beaches weren’t as pretty compared to the secluded beach we had at our hotel 45 minutes away with half the price tag. My advice and the advice given to us is if you want to stay somewhere on the Amalfi coast where it is not as touristy and expensive, stay outside of Positano and just take day trips. Just in our one day spent in Positano, I felt as if I’ve had already gotten to see a majority of what the town had to offer.
Trey and I had fun, but we were glad we didn’t stay there. If we ever get the chance to go back to the coast, I would stay in the same hotel again and visit the island of Capri instead :).
Looking back at these honeymoon pictures gives me all the feels and more…especially since I’m currently 34 weeks pregnant and wishing and hoping I can get back to what I looked like here 😅.
