Welcome to Positano
Once a vital part of a mighty sea power, Positano is today a sophisticated resort on the central Amalfi Coast. Moorish-style architecture rises up steep slopes that gaze out on the Sirenuse Islands. Smart boutiques, selling fashions for visitors to display on Grand Beach, abound in the village. And it’s a great base for exploring the area—you can easily travel by boat to Capri, Ischia and the Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.
Positano is just a few kilometers from the beautiful island of Capri. It is a paradise on earth, the ideal place to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in Italy. Walk along or lie on the beaches of Positano, enjoy the Italian tasty and healthy cuisine. Seen from the sea, Positano is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of colors; the green of the Monti Lattari, the white, pink and yellow of the Mediterranean houses, the silvery grey of its pebble beaches and the blue of the sea.
Come and discover Positano on the Amalfi coast. The town was, according to legend, created by Neptune, the God of the sea who was in love with a nymph. Positano remains one of the most romantic destinations in Europe; it is the perfect place for a honeymoon or a wedding request. The Ancient Romans built a number of sumptuous villas on the coast of Positano, the ruins of which can be seen in the vicinity of the Church dell’Assunta.
Spiaggia Grande is the heart of sea edge Positano. 300 meters long, the beach is one of the largest on the Amalfi Coast, and one of the most glamorous too, attracting a fashionable crowd of artists, actors and celebrities. Those looking for a more peaceful spot in which to bask in the Mediterranean sun will love Positano’s Fornillo beach, which can be reached via a coastal path commencing on the Spiaggia Grande.
