A jewel in the Amalfi Coastís crown, it is Positano your eye is drawn to when approaching this stunning and dramatic coastline in southern Italy. Pretty, colourful, stacked houses with ornate balconies tumble down the lemon-clad cliffs towards the sparkling Mediterranean blue sea, where you can soak up the sun on one of Positanoís two beaches: Fornillo and Spiaggia Grande. The latter, with its ferry port and string of restaurants and late night bars, sees tourists, locals and celebrities uniting over cocktails and fine food. In the town itself, steep streets lined with ceramic shops, luxury boutiques, pretty cafes and grand palazzo hotels are so inviting, that a leisurely walk is a must; no rushing around Positano. Worth seeing is the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, a stunning building in the middle of Positano, whose blue and gold sparkling dome you can see from miles around. But, itís definitely walking around the atmospheric, spectacular town thatís most enticing. If you can pull yourself away, a boat trip to the nearby Island of Capri, with its blue grotto, is highly recommended.
