Stroll around this very popular resort perched atop a seaside cliff like so many picturesque villages along the coast.
Further along the coast, we will reach Positano, where a picture postcard comes to life – a patchwork of flat and domed roofs and vine-covered stairways tumbling down to meet the gentle curve of beach, which is dotted with brightly colored fishing boats. Enjoy time at leisure to explore this elegant spot with its designer boutiques, shops, and seaside cafes. Positano is predominately pedestrian with many steps and inclines.

Surrounded by lavish temples and porticoes, you will begin to grasp the lifestyle of the inhabitants. Admire the mansions and the art of wealthy patricians who moved to Pompeii to escape the turmoil of Rome; view countless paintings and inscriptions. See the streets with raised pavements on both sides and the stepping-stones that ensured pedestrians a safe crossing at intersections.
