Positano

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.

There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Il Sentiero Degli Dei, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Parrocchia San Giovanni, take in the pleasant sights at Positano, and enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Grande.
