Clinging to the cliffs and gullys of this magnificent coastline, Positano is the Amalfi Coast’s number one tourist destination. With its beautiful bay and lovely beaches, Spaggia Grande and Fornillo, plus its proximity to the famous island of Capri and the possibly even more beautiful island of Ischia, it’s no wonder visitors love it.

The town dates back to the 10th century when people from further north along the coast fled the invading Turks and took refuge in a Benedictine Abbey here. The site was easier to defend so they stayed and Positano grew on the side of the steep mountains which drop down to the sea. Once a sleepy fishing town, the town is now a tourist mecca, still looked over by the gold dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, which houses a Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary.

Expect to climb a lot of steps when exploring the steep streets and don’t miss the precarious little bridge on the coast road called the Ponte dei Libri (Bridge of Books) which is surrounded by rock formations that look like piles of books.
