A few shots from our recent trip to the Italian Riviera

The first time I visited Amalfi, Capri, and Positano was a little over 5 years ago; its pebbled beaches, colored houses, and bold parasols immediately seducing and prying a promise to return. That promise was fulfilled over the summer when we took a three-and-a-half-hour road trip from Matera to Positano, the cliffside fishing village whose sparkling turquoise waters have been pinned relentlessly on Pinterest and shared countless times on Instagram.

Together with friends, we decided to set up camp in Praiano, a low-key resort town which has its roots as an ancient fishing village along the Amalfi Coast. The fortunately lesser-known town is situated between Positano and Amalfi, its frazione a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only did we have direct, private access to the rocky shores of the Amalfi Coast, Praiano also offered us a respite from the dense crowds that typically flock to Positano, Amalfi, and the island of Capri.

We spent sun-soaked days exploring the Amalfi Coast by boat, stopping off to pick up ceramics in Positano and meeting friends for dinner and drinks at Le Sirenuse. Capri and the town of Amalfi were also on the agenda, as well as the various grottos and small beaches carved into the rocks.

Here, snapshots from our iPhone when we remembered to whip it out!
