Positano, Italy

Positano is a small picturesque town with splendid coastal views, on the famous Amalfi Coast in Campania, Italy. The town itself is perched on an enclave on the face of a hill and winds down towards the waters of the Amalfi Coast. Naturally beautiful, Positano attracts thousands of visitors every year. All year long, the town is always full of people, but if you are planning to visit Positano, it would be best to schedule your trip during the spring season.

There are loads of little stairs leading from everywhere to everywhere straight. Alternatively there is the one road meandering down to the harbor. But while speaking on getting around you can also consider a bus that goes down and – especially – up the hill following the meandering always congested road.

While here you should definitely visit Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta. This is one of the most famous attractions in Positano. The old church, boasting of a majestic dome, was built in the 1920s and is the location of the famous 13th century Byzantine icon, the Madonna di Positano. Also seeing the harbor is a great way to spend part of the day. You can also take ferry trips to Paestum or Ischia and Capri (including the Blue Grotto) during summer months.
