We stayed in Sorrento for easy accessibility from Naples airport and cost effective hotels. SITA bus runs every 45 minutes and for 4 Euro charge, we reached Positano in 45 minutes. View of mountains, stacked buildings, curvy roads and bluish green sea down the hill...More

This beautiful church stands in the heart of the town so it begs to be explored. It is an appealing interlude from riding the twisting roads and walking steep streets. It is brighetre and more cheery than many churches in the area. Worth a visit.

Beautiful old church in the heart of Positano. You can see it from most places in Positano. The inside is similar to most other churches along the coast.

The dome of Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta is very picturesque, being covered with colorful majolica tiles. It certainly stands out when Positano is viewed from the Amalfi Coast road. However I did not go inside the church, so I cannot comment on that.

To find a church of this size and grandeur in a small coastal town is extraordinary...it has a beautiful interior with lots of eye-catching architecturally interesting inclusions. You'll invaribly end up walking by it so take a moment to cool off inside.
