Once Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the 20th century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s. Vegetation and rocky hillside lunge dramatically towards the Mediterranean blue sea. The well known Amalfi Coast way turn to the hilly sides revealing a sequence of picturesque views each surprisingly more stunning than the one before. Not so many years ago alot of this coast was only reachable by boat. Now it's a modern resort area which retains the elegance of past times.
Sun, landscapes, food, and buying things. Spiaggia grande plage has it all, but it is loaded with travelers. From the winding cobbled streets that take you down to the beach, to all of the secreted shops, this seashore is one of tourists definite favorites. You may easily spend the entire day at this place people watching, or catch a ferry to Capri. Positano is really worth a pleasure trip, however in by my personal opinion too touristy to stay more than a few days.
Although Positano is not as well-known as another attractions in Italy, many historical and archeologic sites are located in the city. The Church of Santa Maria Assunta duomo dates to the thirteenth century and showcases the well-known Black Madonna Byzantine painting. Take a ship to Via Positanesa d'America, a walkway on the sea cliff. The Positano Botanical Gardens offers a relaxing stroll through lush, vivid gardens with a panoramic view of the Amalfi Coast - Italy, Europe
