Just days before arriving in Positano, Italy, Melissa and Joe Gorga detailed what they had in store for their European getaway on the July 27 episode of Melissa’s On Display podcast. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

“This is technically not our honeymoon. It’s our relaxation time,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member said. “Joe and I are going to Positano and Capri. We are very excited about it.”

Melissa went on to explain how the trip was actually going to be a “first” for the couple. “Fun fact: Joe’s been to Italy, I’ve been to Italy, [but] we’ve never been to Italy together,” Melissa revealed. “So this is a first for us.”

In addition to keeping up with the RHONJ couple’s exciting travels, we had to keep tabs on all of Melissa’s most fabulous looks, including retro-style bathing suits, sultry sundresses, eye-popping accessories, and more. 

OK — andiamo! 

Melissa Gorga’s Italian Vacation Outfits 

“Magical is an understatement […] Day 1 in Positano with [you],” Melissa captioned a July 28 Instagram series of herself and Joe taking in the incredible ambience in the coastal Italian city.

In addition to snaps of delicious-looking dinners and beautiful views, we also took note of Melissa’s stunning, flowy maxi dress from her Envy boutique ($570) that featured a sage green fabric covered in lime green embroidery with a geometric pattern. The New Jersey mom paired her romantic frock with lightly tousled locks and small gold hoop earrings. 

Melissa also took to her Instagram Stories to share outtakes from her travels, showing off a bright red maxi dress with straps that tied at the top as well as a one-piece taupe bathing suit.

Melissa was giving all the ’60s Italian vibes in the swimsuit shot with a white headband and oversize square-framed brown sunglasses.

The swimsuit style didn’t stop there, however, as the brunette beauty then hopped on her main Instagram page to share a seaside snap of herself in a pink, purple, and red patterned bikini from LSpace. 

Melissa paired the two-piece with what appeared to be the same white hair accessory plus white-rimmed sunnies for a special retro touch. 

“[I] will be stealing that bathing suit,” Melissa’s daughter, Antonia, adorably quipped in the comments section. 

Melissa went on to share a view from “paradise” in a July 30 edited video in which she modeled a pretty white maxi dress from Envy boutique ($595). The dress was covered in floral appliqués and featured a large white bow in the front. 

“Amalfi coast princess!!” Melissa’s RHONJ castmate Margaret Josephs exclaimed in the comments.

In addition to some fabulous fashion moments, we were able to peep some more gorgeous seaside views in Melissa’s Instagram Stories. The boutique owner also continued to share close-up looks at some of the most scrumptious-looking Italian cuisine.

We are filled with envy, to say the least!
