Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to discover the captivating charm of Positano in the picturesque region of Campania: – Positano is a picturesque town on the Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches for 60 kilometres along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. It is famous for its stunning scenery, colourful architecture, and glamorous atmosphere. It is a popular destination for tourists, artists, and celebrities who are drawn to its natural beauty and cultural charm. Positano’s history dates to the ancient Romans, who built lavish villas on the coast. The town later became a prosperous maritime republic and a trading hub in the Mediterranean³. However, it suffered from pirate raids, natural disasters, and economic decline over the centuries, and many of its inhabitants emigrated to America in the early 1900s. Positano’s fortune changed in the 1950s, when it was rediscovered by writers, painters, and film stars who made it a fashionable resort. Positano’s main attraction is its dramatic setting, with houses clinging to the steep slopes that descend to the sea. The town is divided into two parts: the upper part, where the main road and the bus stop are located, and the lower part, where the beach and the harbour are situated. The two parts are connected by narrow alleys and stairways that offer breathtaking views of the coast and the islands of Li Galli. Along the way, visitors can admire the majolica-tiled dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, which houses a Byzantine icon of the Black Madonna, and browse the boutiques that sell local handicrafts, such as ceramics, sandals, and clothing. Positano is also a great base for exploring the surrounding area, which offers many attractions and activities. One can take a boat trip to the island of Capri, visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, hike the scenic trails of the Lattari Mountains, or enjoy the culinary delights and nightlife of the Amalfi Coast. Positano is a town that captivates the senses and the imagination and invites one to experience the dolce vita of Italy.
