First Day in Positano

Slept in at our beautiful room here at Palazzo Murat.   When we did get up, and opened the windows we were greated with a spectacular view.   ½ Positano hillside, ½ Mediterranean.  Wonderful.  Went down to a fabulous breakfast in the courtyard.  Smoked salmon, eggs, bacon, fruit tort, coffee.  It’s Palm Sunday here so lots of church bells going off.  Went for a walk to see the town.  First down to the beach.  Past the church where Palm Sunday mass was being held.  Lots of people with palm fronds walking about.    Lots of little shops tucked into the sides of the tiny path.    Nice beachside walk with a bunch of restaurants down there.Day 11 - Positano-0122_1280px

Walked in and out of a few shops.  Bought a t-shirt and Nan looked but didn’t buy anything.  Walked back up past the hotel and started up the hill.  Rounding about lunchtime so people were closing up.  Walked back down to the hotel and the desk recommended Le Tre Sorelle (The Three Sisters) as the place for pizza.   Not too impressed. Had a decent pizza with tomatos, mozzarella and porcini mushrooms but the crust wasn’t spectacular.  Nan had a lovely shaved parmesan salad w/cherry tomatoes.   Came back to the room for a nap as the winds kicked up in the afternoon.  Make reservations for post sunset (7:45p) at Chez Black for tonight.  Called Salvatore at Amalfi Car Service and set noon as the time to meet for tomorrows car/driver trip up the coast.   Had dinner at Chez Black.  Very nice on the inside.  Est 1949.

Wonderful veggie soup.  Nan had a grilled white fish and I had lobster pasta.   Wanted the local water lobster but N/A.  Got boiled Med lobster.  Little tough and not much in the shell.   Fabulous chocolate covered cream puffs for desert.
