A festival of colors, a perfect blend between the sea and the mountains and an exclusive vibe are just a few of the aspects which portray the beauty of the famous Positano.
This village is considered the most photogenic place on the Amalfi Coast and for good reason. A multitude of colored houses of all shapes and sizes covers an entire side of the mountain. Similar to the image of a falling waterfall, all those houses seem to fall down in the sea creating a splendid view.
I felt a huge desire to discover this small picturesque village and maybe this is why I enjoyed this visit to the fullest. My trip started and ended with Positano. No matter what I planned to visit on the Amalfi Coast, I kept on going back to Positano. Despite this fact, I feel I haven’t taken enough pictures of this beautiful village.
Also called the Hollywood of Europe, Positano was the perfect setting for a lot of movies, an aspect which increased its notoriety a lot. It is also the symbol of the entire coast and it offers a lot to the multitude of tourists who choose to spend their holidays in this part of Italy. In order to fully enjoy Positano, there are a few things you could do in this lovely village.
The colored houses which perfectly blend with the turquoise sea deserve a few minutes of your time. The image of the houses is totally different in the morning than the one you can admire in the evening or at night when the lights are on. You can admire these houses from almost any part of Positano.
Take your time and explore the beautiful Marina Grande Beach. It is totally worth it. This famous stretch of grey pebbles is the place which offers great moments of relaxation and beautiful views. The image of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and its dome made of majolica tiles can be also admired from the gravel of Marina Grande Beach.
Walking down the narrow cobblestone streets of Positano will offer you the chance to admire spectacular views and also to buy interesting products in the multitude of clothing and souvenir shops. You can choose from a variety of beautiful cotton dresses and blouses, hats or beach accessories. Positano is considered a really fashionable village and I’m sure you didn’t know that it was the first town in Italy which imported bikini from France.
Positano is indeed the most expensive place on the Amalfi Coast, but you should still enjoy a meal at one of its lovely terraces. Sea food, fish and even pizza or pasta are more delicious if you taste them while admiring the beautiful view of Positano.
All things considered, make sure you add Positano to your trip list and enjoy it to the fullest.
