Exploring the Amalfi Coast

Positano

Built vertically on the steep cliffside and approximately a 75-minute drive from Naples and 20 minutes from Sorrento, Positano is famous worldwide for its spectacular setting with houses stacked on top of one another, tiny streets, fashionable boutiques and colorful ceramics. Seen from the sea, the town offers an impressive panorama of colors: the green of the Monti Lattari; the white, pink, and yellow of the Mediterranean houses; the silvery grey of its pebble beaches; and the blue of the sea. Take a boat tour along the coast to discover hidden coves and secluded beaches, like the marvelous Li Galli, and or hike ancient trails for panoramic views of the azure sea below.
