To protect themselves they
built their houses and churches high on and inside the mountain rocks.
Between the 16th century and the beginning of the 19th century the Italian
people, forgot this beautiful village and in place, the intellectuals and
artists rediscovered the magic of Positano.
|Now Positano is one of Italy's
most exclusive resorts, attracting celebrities, artists, musicians and
writers for many decades. Such renown has led to the presence of chic boutiques;
craft workshops, antique dealers, smart cafes and restaurants, and a reputation
for fashion confirmed by it being, in 1959, the first Italian resort to
see the bikini! The town's Moorish origins are betrayed by its picturesque
clustered maze of white and pastel coloured cubic dwellings with their
arches, occasional domed roofs, tiny gardens laden with flowers and citrus
trees, cobbled alleys, colourful narrow lanes and stepped streets. Dominating
all is the distinctive patterned tiled dome of the cathedral.
Exploration is strenuous,
as the alternative to long, sloping, serpentine streets are steep, stepped
streets and old, romantic, whitewashed passages. It's a relief to arrive
at sea level by the Piazza Amerigo Vespucci and collapse on the beach or
in a café.
A place to visit is the famous
Bar Internazionale at the entrance of the village. A little bar that offers
basically everything one can ask for; international newspaper, good wines
by glass and bottle and really good cappuccino!
If you stroll along the
Viale Pasitea you will pass some very nice hotels and apartments and typical
|The best places to eat are
a little bit outside the historical centre, but these places offer magnificent
views and good traditional food. The first place is Da Constantino, just
at the beginning on the road that leads to Montepertuso and Nocelle. The
second one is called La Tagliata and specializes in meat and fish from
the grill. Herr Schroder is a regular customer here.
You should definitely visit
the little village called Nocelle. This is still part of Positano, 7 km
away high on the mountain. Some private villas with swimming pool, some
authentic houses caved out of the rocks and a little church make this a
perfect place to get away from the tourists and enjoy the spectacular coastline
and magnificent sunset.
Back in Positano, after many
steps, you can take a swim at one of the two beaches; the Spiaggia Grande
or the more intimate Fornillo.
The micro-climate protects
Positano from cold weather. The average temperature is around 20/25 Celsius.
