Overcrowded jewel on Amalfi coast Dec 30, 2006
WARNING: Don't go there during the summer or the week-end,the town is very overcrowded!
You can take a boat from Sorrento and Capri, using the Linee Marritime Partenopee or Caremar.In summer,there are hydrofoils from Sorrento,Amalfi,Capri.Take a boat is the best thing to do, to avoid the monstrous traffic jams on the only one coastal road,or go there at NIGHT or rent an helicopter...
Positano is the most touristy village of the Amalfi Coast with its white houses ,all huddling on top of each other,spilling down the hillsides towards the turquoise sea.
Positano is completely pedestrianized and the cars should be left in the few car parks of Piazza dei Mulini ,reached after hours and hours of standing in line!
Most of the daily crowds of tourists have a glance at the beaches(the public beaches are overcrowded),visit the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta with its imposing majolica dome,and inside, a 13th century icon of a Black Madonna and SHOP.
People can find here a lot of designer boutiques,beachwear,limoncello and lemon products,watercolour paintings... and last but not the least SANDALS.
After the WWII,the tradition of sandals made to measure, began in Positano and now,you can find there, a large choice of sandals of trendy styles.
