After the first few hundred curve, here is the first station - Positano, once a small fishing village and today converted into a tourist resort. Anyway, the town's position is really awesome it is spread out over one of the slopes of Mount Comune above the Mediteranean sea. Narrow streets are almost vertical, in fact, they are not even the street, but steep stairs, until the coast where ones find the church on the beach. We left the car above the village, so we are well tired because of walk to the beach. In the centre of Positano town, we ascertain that a small local bus rides to the top of the mountain, hamlet Noce. Before us pointed the pictursque view to the small town of Positano and the whole bay below. There was no one else clouds, houses, gardens and lizards on hot rocks. Through a few streets, we reached the small square with the church and met a few locals. There was also an road sign where stands that from here to Positano ascend 1700 steps, so that it can walk!
