Positano is a village that seems to defy gravity as it clings to the side of a cliff on the Amalfi Coast. At the bottom is a pebbly beach washed by a cool blue sea. As you head up the steep streets into the colourful village, you'll find a delightful array of shops and cafés, as well as charms by the bucket.

    A popular getaway for romantic couples and families, the star attraction of Positano is undoubtedly the beach. Even so, the historic Church of Santa Maria Assunta is certainly worth a look. It's virtually impossible to miss its striking dome that towers over the town.
