Visit Positano - Best of Positano

A small, beautiful and charming village located at the edge of the Amalfi coast in Campania, Italy, stands Posatino. The picturesque coastal view, stacked up houses with earthy colours on it, descended down to the sun kissed beach, has managed to attract thousands of photographers from all over the world. According to many travel guides, Positano is considered as ‘the most photographed fishing village’. As John Steinbeck has stated in his experience while travelling to Positano, Italy, the first impression of the village turns out to be like an illusion. However, taking a tour around Positano makes you come back to the real world. Because of these features, this village remains crowded almost all round the year. However, if you are still planning to visit Positano, it’s best to plan your trip during spring.
