Positano Overview

Positano is a picturesque resort town on Italy's Amalfi Coast
A nearly vertical town, Positano spills down from the cornice like a waterfall of pink, cream and yellow villas. The oldest houses are in the upper part. Daytrippers may walk down to the sea, only the alpinists among them make it back up (fortunately, there is regular bus service to take you back to the top). The descent ends at Marina Grand, a pebbled beach used by fishing boats. From here you can take a boat to inlets inaccessible by land or take a ferry back to Sorrento or Capri. Marina Grand is lined with bars and restaurants. By the harbour artists sit with their easels painting this amazing town. Exclusive and fashionable, few places are as picturesque as Positano. The centre of the town is a pedestrianized maze of cobbled alleyways and steps leading to chic boutiques and craft shops, famous for their bright patterned textiles. The church of Santa Maria Assunta, with it's traditional colourful dome, is a focal point of the town.
