Positano is one of the most famous towns of the Amalfi Coast, known for its pebbled beaches and picturesque landscape. It’s small, steep, and ultra-romantic.



The beaches of Positano are packed to the brim during summer. The best time to visit is in May and September when the weather is warm, but the beaches aren’t as crowded.
