Ferragosto in Positano

Yesterday I took a quick hop over to Positano, which was filled with a festive air in preparation for the Ferragosto celebrations last night and today. As the bright balloons floated in the sea breeze, I looked up to see the colorful dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, seeming to catch both the religious and secular side of the celebrations in once glance. As I sat on the beach, I could hear the marching band playing in the distance as the noon bells began to ring. Such a festive summer setting!

Buon ferragosto from the Amalfi Coast!

  • Looks beautiful! Can’t wait to take my kids someday. Never went in the summer. We spent days there in September.
    Take care,
