On the southern, central side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the picturesque town of Positano sits along the unrivaled Amalfi Coast. With more than 28 miles of dramatic and winding coastline, pebbled beaches, and narrow stairways winding up a variety of inclines, it’s no mystery that the region has been drawing travelers the world over for centuries. You might recognize Positano as the backdrop for the film Under the Tuscan Sun. John Steinbeck described the town as “a dream place that isn’t quite real.” Best known for the clusters of sun-bleached villas that dot its colorful hillside and relaxed way of life, this is truly la dolce vita.
Capri, the Isle of Dreams, has been drawing visitors since the days of the Roman Emperors to enjoy its natural beauty and its wonderful views. Tour the island and stop at some of Capri's most famous sights.
Spend a day in the town of Amalﬁ itself! This lively and bustling town is home to the enormous Cathedral of Sant'Andrea, the Piazza dei Doggi, several peaceful cloisters and the Museum of Paper.
Private boat reservations for islands are available (at an extra charge). With such a staggering amount of shoreline, boat excursions around the Amalfi Coast can take you almost anywhere.
Dozens of beaches line the Amalfi Coast but if you're looking for true seclusion, head to a quiet area such as Laurito, a locals' spot where you can relax on a deck chair and sip ice cold limoncello.
For a romantic dinner, try the Palazzo Murat in Positano. In Donna Carmela’s garden, you’ll dine by candlelight amongst citrus trees. Their wine menu features more than 400 labels.
This Roman Catholic structure in Piazza del Duomo dates back to the ninth century. Dedicated to the Apostle Saint Andrew, its Arab-Norman Romanesque architecture has been remodeled several times.

Renting a car is not recommended - the terrain is hilly and roads are narrow and busy. Your concierge can arrange for an airport transfer and any car or water taxi transportation you need during your Positano vacation. You're just a short walk from the village.
Because the villages of the Amalfi Coast have been built into the hillsides over the past few centuries, the streets and alleys are winding and abundant. Take a stroll through passageways and staircases to find hidden cafes and the area's best kept secrets.
If you find yourself in Naples, you would be remiss to not eat a pizza. Be sure the pizzeria you visit is a member of the Pizza Napoletana Association, the differentiator that will ensure you're truly tasting "La Vera Pizza."
A local spicy salami called pezzanta is served often at lunch time. Try any of the seafood dishes you see on seasonal menus; the region's specialty. Thanks to the lemon groves, a variety of lemon pastries make for a great dessert.
The Mediterranean climate of Positano makes the weather pleasant year-round. High season for the Amalfi Coast is April to June, when flowers are blooming and travelers visit in abundance. The warmest temperatures (mid 80s) will occur in July and August. Early summer and early fall are the best seasons to visit if you favor mild temperatures.
