Bus from the Airbnb: €2.60 (approx. $3.45 CAD)
The Amalfi Coast stretches around 50 kilometres along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine peninsula. For an easy (and cost-effective) way to get around from town to town, Vashti took the bus.
An Italian sandwich for lunch: €7 (approx. $9.30 CAD)
After the bus ride, Vashti fueled up with an Italian sandwich for lunch for a long day ahead.
Beach day in Positano: free
A popular place on the Amalfi Coast, Positano is a small vertical town that overhangs the Mediterranean Sea. All the beaches in Positano are Instagram worthy, and swimming in the ocean while looking at the incredible views is definitely a pinch-me moment.
