Positano Tourism: Best of Positano

The Amalfi Coast's impossibly picturesque town brimming with "la dolce vita"
Once a vital part of a mighty sea power, Positano is a sophisticated resort town today and the jewel of southern Italy's iconic Amalfi Coast. Steep slopes covered in pedestrian lanes and sweet-scented wisteria face out onto the Sirenuse Islands. The village abounds with smart boutiques selling lemon-themed ceramics and artisan leather sandals. Sample fresh seafood and earthy wines at the town's countless romantic restaurants. Positano is also a great base for exploring the area—you can easily travel by boat to Capri, Ischia, and the Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.
