Positano

Often referred to as the gem of the Amalfi Coast, Positano remains one of southern Italy's most sought-after vacation locales, thanks to its hillside location and picturesque, pastel buildings.

There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Fornillo, stroll through Lido di Ravello, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, and look for gifts at Nana' Positano.
