My bucket list European destination.
As I said in the the first part of this series of blogs I had only weeks to book our holiday so getting accommodation was tough. Positano was fully booked. So I took some advice from a facebook post that mentioned Atrani was pretty much in the same state as it was in the 50’s I found only one hotel and was very excited to see where the second tiniest town in Italy was like.
We arrived and I adored! It has maybe 7 restaurants- all exquisite local recipes and its cheap. You are 10 mins from Ravello an 20 mins from Positano. Steven on the other hand had mixed feelings for Atrani.
- Ravello is a must and if you go you must visit Villa Cimbrone- one of the highlights of the trip. This place is exceptionally beautiful, the Villa used to be Greta Garbos home. The downside the food is terrible. It is quite confusing how you can be at the most beautiful spot in Italy with the worst food ever. So go for a visit and save your appetite for anywhere but Villa Cimbrone.
- Positano/Treville beach club. Aussies are obseesed with Da’adolfo. We caught the boat but couldn’t get a table. Lucky for us there was one next door at Treville beach club. Uber sexy and high end. Food and wine exceptional. We met the owner. He is a mining heir. They had a fun group of Americans and Poms with them and invited us to stay at the beach club as they have 8 rooms and you can only stay by invite. We toyed with the idea and then thought we would spend the last two nights in Rome- coming up in the next blog post.
