Positano

According to the legend, Positano was founded by a group of inhabitants from Paestum who were escaping from the attack of some Saraceni (pirates of the time).

The first official information about the town's existence comes from some ancient Roman documents, but some artifacts from the Palaeolithic Era have also been found in Positano. These artifacts testify to a much more ancient origin of the settlement.

The town of Positano is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Amalfi Coast, and the valley opens up to an equally magnificent stretch of coastline. At the center of town you can see the brightly colored "maiolica" dome of Santa Maria Assunta, the main church of Positano. As well as completing the picturesque view of this Southern Italian town, the church is also a very important part of daily life, for many local inhabitants of Positano. Inside, the church features a collection of intriguing works of art from the XIII, and XVI century that are well worth visiting.

Positano has a very glamorous side to it, because of the famous "Positano fashion style", this is just one of the many reasons that tourists from all over the world flock to the pathways, and boutiques of Positano each summer.

With it's beauty, luxurious hotels, bars, restaurants, and shops, Positano is surely a perfect place to discover the Amalfi Coast.
