From any vantage point, gape in awe at the town’s stunning church, the Santa Maria Assunta. Its green and gold majolica tiled Duomo is Positano’s most coveted landmark. For another perspective of the town, curve past the Covo dei Saraceni (where the ferries depart for Capri along the Via Postinesi D’America near Trasita Tower) to find Fornillo Beach. Fornillo Spiagga boasts a large pebbly beach situated between two ancient watch towers, ideal for contemplating all this beauty while enjoying grilled fish, authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizza and a limoncello. At night join locals at disco and piano bar Music on the Rocks ingeniously carved into the cliffs at the end of the main spiagga.
For walkers, the hamlets of Montepertuso and Nocelle in the hills above Positano provide dramatic ancient trail terrain. The Sentiero degli Dei, Path of the Gods, lives up to its formidable name. The route is suitable for all hiking levels and stretches from Agerola to Praiano to Positano through blissfully quiet mountains with haunting panoramas.
Viewed from the terrace of Monastero Santa Rosa, facing the southern sun, lies Amalfi, the first of the Maritime Republics of Italy. Summer brings the Festival of Sant’Andrea, named for the town’s most famous landmark 11th-century medieval cathedral.
