Although it was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, it had fallen on hard times by the 19th century and was a poor fishing village in the early 20th century, until John Steinbeck wrote about it in 1953 in Harper’s Bazaar. Now, tourism is its main industry. We had a lovely apartment overlooking the deep canyon Positano is wrapped around, with lovely views:


Definitely a walking town, it’s lush with flowers and shaded pedestrian streets

The beach is mainly divided into private sections, and you rent your chair, towels, and umbrella:

Towering over the beach is Santa Maria Assunta
