Perched up on a steep hill with panoramic views of the stunning Amalfi Coast, the small romantic town of Positano attracts thousands of visitors year round. Tourists flock here to enjoy the remarkable natural beauty of the town’s excellent beaches. These include the smaller, secluded and laidback Fornillo beach with its charming little beach bars; and the larger bustling ferry port and the main beach of Spiaggia Grande. The town’s premier attraction is undoubtedly the lovely church of Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta, which boasts an impressive majolica dome and the famous thirteenth-century Byzantine icon, the Madonna di Positano. With its rich historical and cultural heritage, its upmarket hotels and boutiques and its pleasantly mild climate, Positano is an ideal base for exploring the string of picturesque towns along the Amalfi Coast on the narrow but scenic Amalfi Drive.
