Positano

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Campania  /  Amalfi Coast  /  Positano
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.
