Positano

4.1
Often referred to as the gem of the Amalfi Coast, Positano remains one of southern Italy's most sought-after vacation locales, thanks to its hillside location and picturesque, pastel buildings. A popular retreat for artists and writers during the 1950s and 1960s, the town transformed into cultural hub with a romantic southern Italian feel, while still harboring its historic fishing village roots. The pedestrian-only town center is dotted with hole-in-the-wall restaurants, trendy boutiques, and historic stucco homes, all nestled along steep streets overlooking the Mediterranean. Positano is in Amalfi Coast. To arrange what you want to do in Positano, use our Italy visit planner.
