Positano, a destination privileged by VIPs and stars.

Ideal to spend any kind of holiday, Positano - despite its small dimensions - offers so many different opportunities of amusement, though it is particularly charming in Summer. Among the most enchanting centres in the Amalfi Coast, there is the small, but suggestive village of Positano which, besides the beauties typical of the nature characterizing the coastline of the Gulf of Salerno, has also the charm typical of the most famous destinations of VIPs and stars. Ideal to spend any kind of holiday, Positano itself - despite its small dimensions – offers so many different opportunities of amusement, though it is particularly charming in Summer. Thanks to its wonderful beaches and to a particularly clean sea, in fact, this small paradise, during the day, is ideal to get an enviable suntan or spend pleasant days to have baths. On the contrary, during the night, in Summer, there is a wide range of opportunities to choose among. At any time and in any period of the year, then, it is possible to taste delicious dishes offered by so many different (and more or less titled) restaurants and pizzerias. Not to be missed, then, is a characteristic and famous craftsmanlike expression: the one that, in the clothing branch, allows the creation of items considered as the typical Positano fashion. It is a bright and fanciful kind of clothing, at the same time, simple and elegant, and sometimes sophisticated, which has been successful since the early ‘50’s, but which, by renovating itself year after year, is always up-to-date and keeps its charm unchanged. Those who wish, can make excursions that allow to appreciate the historical, artistic and monumental beauties across the whole area. Those who are interested in a religious itinerary, can visit, for example, the Chiesa Nuova, (at first consecrated to the Madonna of Graces), besides those consecrated to St. John, St. Matthew, to Madonna of Rosary, to St. Margaret, to St. Catherine and to St. James, though particularly worthy of attentions is the Parish Church of Assunta with the neighbouring Chapel of Oratorio, the museum of ancient stone tablets and the crypt. On the contrary, those who are interested in a historical itinerary, cannot give up the suggestions given by the 18th-hundred villas (almost all of them owned by private people or seats of prestigious hotels) and the ancient watch-towers, once located along the coastline to allow the sighting of enemy boats, mostly Saracen, whose crews were intentioned to make incursions into the area. Interesting, finally, can be even visiting the hamlets of Montepertuso (also characterized by the presence of a wonderful natural arch), of Nocelle and Laurito.
