Positano

The day is filled with the simple and informal rhythms of the sea, including scenic stairways, flowers, and glimpses of blue. In the morning, you decide whether to go to the Grande Beach or to those of Fornillo, Arienzo or Laurito. Or, if you'd rather, you can rent a boat and go to one of the many secluded coves.

 

But as soon as it starts to get dusk, you can go shopping among a hundred little streets that are worth taking a picture of. Positano is a great place for fashion, art, ceramics, and food and wine.

 

There is so much on offer, and it's so pleasant to walk around that you only realise the town is still clinging to a mountain when it's time for aperitifs.

Overview

#GETTING AROUND -  Positano is linked to Sorrento and Amalfi by direct bus journeys provided by the Sita bus. From its port, there are regular hydrofoils to Capri, Ischia, Amalfi and Sorrento. The transfer from Naples airport is around 1h and 40 minutes depending on traffic.

 

#POSITANO BEACH GLAMOUR - La Scogliera Beach Club is hidden in the rocks of the Amalfi Coast, near Spiaggia Grande di Positano, and close to the famous Music on the Rocks disco carved into the rock. It's a chic lounge bar during the day, and it's a great place for sunset drinks with a view of the Li Galli islands.

 

#FASHION SHOPPING - If you stroll through the alleys of Positano, you'll stumble upon some small craft shops that have become successful because they use fresh and colourful fabrics, like linen and hemp.

The Theodora Positano shop is a great example - it's been tailoring for years. Other shops are Maria Lampo, Idillio, Antica Sartoria and La Bottega di Brunella.

 

#PATH OF GODS -  The famous Path of the Gods is nearby and tempting for anyone who likes to hike. The path starts in Agerola and reaches Positano through a trekking path suspended between sky and sea. In Springs and Autumns, a series of classical and contemporary music concerts takes place in the churchyard of Santa Maria a Castro, among the ruins of ancient cave dwellings, with enchanting views of the Lattari Mountains.

#EAT WITH A SEA VIEW - A meal with a view of the sea is a must-do while in Positano. It doesn't matter if it's a sandwich, pizza, or a five-star meal--the important thing is that you can see the sea!

 

The Adamo ed Eva restaurant, on the panoramic terrace of the Eden Roc hotel, offers one of the most beautiful views of Positano, if not the most beautiful of all.

 

Don Giovanni, located inside the Hotel California, is a great place to enjoy traditional dishes on a terrace overlooking the sea.

 

Buca di Bacco's terrace overlooking the sea is the perfect spot to enjoy traditional dishes while being in the heart of Positano's worldliness.

 

Perched on the cliff in a private bay, in Positano, the Michelin star Zass restaurant makes you fall in love with the view of Praiano and the coast.
