A Weekend in Positano

A Weekend in Positano, Positano, Italy (B)

Glamorous with its celebrity-packed beaches, lively historic center and breathtakingly gorgeous seascapes and view, Positano is the most sought after destination on the Amalfi Coast and the most photographed fishing village in the world. With Positano’s breathtaking natural beauty, high craggy cliffs and calming sapphire-blue sea, it is truly the jewel of the Amalfi. 

Given Positano’s mild Mediterranean climate of warm summers and mellow winters, there is never a bad time to visit. The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is from May to June when the flowers are blooming and sun is already warm enough for swimming in the crystal clear waters. The ideal month to travel here is May due to the mild climate, beautiful colors and the absence of crowds. Prices in May to June are lower than in July and August. September to October is also a great time to visit.

You can arrive in Positano either by land (train, bus or private transfer) or by sea. Naples, Sorrento and Salerno are the main transportation hubs for the Amalfi Coast. Positano is a 75 minute drive south of Naples. On your drive, you’ll pass Pompei, Mount Vesuvius, the beautiful town of Sorrento and down the mountain coastline until finally descending to the town. Just a warning, the roads are quite windy with hairpin turns and can get quite crowded during the summer months. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
