About the location
Holidays to Positano give you the perfect introduction to Italy’s glorious Amalfi Coast. Be prepared to be seduced by this lovely town, with its vertiginous houses of pastel pink, peach and warm terracotta spilling in disorderly fashion from the slopes of the Monti Lattari to the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

In romantic Positano, hand holding couples negotiate narrow rock cut streets which meander past local shops and little cafés. Duck into an a gallery or boutique selling the best of Positano’s luxury goods, before stopping to take in the view from one of the little bars selling spritzers and epicurean nibbles. Alternatively, simply relax on the beach and take a moment to listen carefully for the legendary call of the Sirens of Li Galli.

If you’re feeling energetic and in search of the best views, head to the Path of the Gods, which is a marked trail that runs from Bomerano to Nocelle. Positano is not just about today, look closely and there are reminders of Roman soldiers, of Benedictine monks and of a time when Ottoman pirates cast a covetous eye over the Amalfi coastline.
