Positano is one of the Amalfi Coast’s prettiest towns. Houses and hotels painted in shades of peach, pink and lemon tumble down the steep cliffsides, the course-sand beach is striped with old-fashioned loungers, and the gold, green and blue majolica tiles on the church dome glint in the sunshine. A narrow road clings to the cliff above the town, running to Sorrento in one direction and Amalfi in the other. 

Running alongside Spiaggia Grande (Positano's main beach) is a café and restaurant-lined promenade. A short flight of steps leads you from the prom up to a little piazza, where you’ll find the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. Look out for the 13th-century Black Madonna icon, displayed above the altar. 

Moving further back from the beach is Positano's main shopping street, shaded by a bougainvillea-draped pergola. Small boutiques sell expensive lace and linen clothes, handmade sandals and local artworks, plus plenty of lemon-themed ceramics and gifts. Local limoncello is often bottled up in beautiful painted bottles, which make fantastic souvenirs.

Continue climbing the stairs out of town and you’ll come to the start of hiking paths which head high into the hills. They are part of the Trail of the Gods (sometimes called the Path of the Gods), a famous walking route that zig-zags up the hill to the hamlet of Nocelle, before travelling along the coast to Bomerano.
