Positano is at the center of the famous Amalfi Coast and south of Naples.
The view of Positano from the beach is unique and offers a perspective of just how precarious some of these buildings are as they cling to the side of the mountain, taking up every square inch of land.
Specializing in scenery, shopping and sand, the resort town of Positano hangs on the most spectacular stretch of the coast. It's a pleasant gathering of cafes, galleries, and boutiques. There's little to do here but eat, window-shop, and enjoy the beach and views...and that's exactly the way its many visitors like it.
