Positano will captivate you at every angle, no matter where you look. This town is truly beautiful. There are pastel coloured buildings scattered all the way up the cliff side. Here is where you can eat your pasta and panini’s guilt free – just be prepared to walk everywhere up and down many stairways! If it’s purely relaxation you are after – stay in a hotel by the Spiagia Grande (the main beach). Otherwise for some of the best views try and stay somewhere higher up, and we promise you’ll get some amazing photos. Within the town and the surrounding Amalfi Coast – shop, eat, swim, and explore via boat, bus, car or scooter.

Explore

Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta – this church is the one main attraction in Positano to visit. The tiled dome roof is the most striking feature of this well recognised church. The interior is just as amazing.

Shopping – you will notice how prolific the lemon is in Positano. Think limoncello, candles, soaps, fragrances, candies, chocolates, ceramics and print. Stroll the street lined stores for local hand painted acrylic paintings, and ceramic goods. We suggest sparing some room in your luggage for artworks and gifts.

Galleries – for art lovers and collectors you’ll find something beautiful. Visit Franco Senesi Fine Art and Italian Fine Art Gallery.

Eat

Ristorante da Costantino – come here for the view, and leave having tasted the best homemade limoncello. We suggest ordering pizza and pasta. Reserve a table if you’re dining for lunch or dinner on the weekend. Otherwise there is a takeaway menu.

Panini – the best sandwiches were made fresh in store. Select your bread and any of the fresh items in the deli. We recommend a panini filled with tomatoes, olive oil, buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto and basil – a sure fire winner.

Donna Rosa – head upwards to this famed restaurant for arguably some of the best dishes on the Amalfi Coast. If you’re keen to try your hand at making one of her signature dishes, enquire about the cooking classes.

Stay

Make a booking at any one of the luxury hotels or rent one of the many villas available on Airbnb. Where you can we highly recommend staying in accommodation with a pool.
