Positano Tours

Positano on Amalfi Coast is famous for the brightly painted houses which tumble down its dramatic cliffside. This former fishing village along Italy’s southern coastline is now an elegant resort town, with the gold dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta above and the Spiaggia Grande and Fornillo beaches below. Explore this tiny town's steep and narrow lanes lined with boutiques and art galleries or take a cruise to the nearby islands of Capri and Ischia.

The Basics
One of the most popular attractions on the Amalfi Coast, Positano is an easy day trip or shore excursion from Naples, Sorrento, or Salerno. The town is crowded during the summer high season, so consider taking a private tour with a small group to avoid the heavy traffic along the coastal highway and overcrowded public transportation. You can stop in Positano as part of a larger Amalfi Coast tour that includes other coastal towns like Amalfi, Ravello, and Praiano, or join a private day tour with stops at Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other sights on the Bay of Naples.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Amalfi Coast and Capri are crowded in summer, and buses and ferries are often full. Book a coastline tour by car or coach or an islands tour by private boat in advance to avoid long lines and delays.
  • Positano is located on a steep cliffside so navigation may be difficult for visitors with limited mobility.
  • Much of Positano and the Amalfi Coast’s charm is its natural beauty; bring a hat and sunblock to guard against the strong Mediterranean sun.
  • The coastal highway to Positano is a white-knuckle drive, and parking in town is limited. A guided tour that includes transportation alleviates these stresses.

How to Get There
Positano's nearest airports are in Naples and Rome, but public transportation from either can be complicated. Consider booking a private transfer directly to Positano with pickup at your arrival airport or train station.

When to Get There
Summer is the most crowded time of year to visit, and many business close for the winter. The best time to visit is either spring or fall, seasons marked by limited crowds, mild weather, and open shops and restaurants.

The Emerald Grotto from Positano
The Emerald Grotto (Grotta dello Smeraldo) is one of the most famous sea caves along the Amalfi Coast. It gets its name from the brilliant green light that filters through a below-sea-level cave opening. The cave is located in Conca dei Marini, a coastal hamlet east of Positano.
