Positano: The gem of the divine coast

Positano, also called the “Gem of the divine coast”, is probably the most amazing village of the Amalfi Coast and will not fall short of your expectations for its incomparable beauty. It is positioned at the centre of the Gulf, with houses and villas built on terraces, amongst beautiful gardens planted with palm trees, orange and lemon groves.

Positano is the most popular tourist destination on the Coast of Amalfi and can easily be reached by car or bus over one of the most fantastic coastal roads of the world. Behind each curve of the 40 km long road “Amalfitana”, always a new panorama appears to the travelers. Stop on small terraced parking and enjoy the breathtaking views on the bay and the blue sea.

Despite of an intense expansion due to the tourism boom, the charming village has preserved its typical vertical structure and its bright architecture with suggestive corners and panoramique views.

In this picturesque landscape Positano offers elegant luxury hotels, many apartments and residences, comfortable resorts and small family hotels with a friendly atmosphere.

Positano is internationally well known for its fashion

Walking along the picturesque lanes of the village you can find many little, but elegant boutiques, which are almost everywhere on both sides of the streets.

If you travel to the Amalfi Coast, you should visit also the beautiful town Ravello with spectacular views.
