Often referred to as the gem of the Amalfi Coast, Positano remains one of southern Italy's most sought-after vacation locales, thanks to its hillside location and picturesque, pastel buildings.
Step out of the city life by going to Fornillo and Spiaggia Grande. Visit Bagni d'Arienzo Beach Club, Positano and Marina di Puolo for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Positano: Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo (in Vico Equense), Chiesa San Sebastiano (in Gragnano) and Chiesa dei Frati Cappuccini (in Sant'Agnello). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Grotte di Suppraiano, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, head outdoors with Spiaggia della Gavitella, and get a taste of the local shopping with Miniaci Art Gallery.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and tourist information, read Positano route planner.
