Few places evoke the feeling of “La dolce vita” as much as Positano. This tiny town is nested on the Amalfi Coast with its pastel coloured villas clinging to the cliffside, looking at the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea. The scent of colourful bougainvilleas, lemon groves and fresh seafood drift gently through the air.
Positano is a bucolic mix of lavish vertical landscapes, history and fabulous coastlines and is the perfect place to enjoy a program that will introduce you to the best of Italy’s beauty, culture and food.
Over time, Positano has attracted artists, celebrities and writers and has kept its charm, with colourful winding alleyways filled with welcoming cafes, patisseries and trattorias serving local cuisine, sun kissed terraces, tiny artisan shops selling Positano moda fashion and handmade sandals, ceramics and limoncello.
Positano is a Moorish-style village that was populated by the ancient Romans as confirmed by the recent excavation of a Roman residential villa (now open to public), discovered under the oratory of the Chiesa di SS. Maria Assunta.
From relaxing at your beach club in Positano or climbing aboard for your boat excursion to Capri, to trying your hand at a traditional cooking class on the Amalfi Coast or enjoying a volcanic regional wine tasting in the vineyards on a gentle slope of Mount Vesuvius, you’ll experience the authentic flavours and relaxed lifestyle of Italy in a marvellous setting.
And as you admire the breathtaking coastal views from the Path of the Gods, walk the elegant alleyways of Ravello, taste a delicious gelato and pastries in the Antique Maritime Republic of Amalfi, and explore the Roman ancient ruins of Pompeii, you’ll be bewitched by the natural beauty and cultural treasures of this land.
This program is hosted at your choice of accommodations in Positano: B&B, 3-, or 4-star property (5 star on request) located near the centre of town and overlooking the sea.
