Italy’s finest summer vacation spot, Positano is located on a giant cliff and is well-known for its beauty. The song from the Rolling Stones “Midnight Rambler” was written by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger while both were on vacation here in Positano. This place attracts tourists even in winter time, although the summer season is the time when most of the accommodation is booked months up front. The narrow streets are filled with small shops that sell everything, from sandals to hand-made souvenirs. When it comes to food, Positano offers many sea specialties, such as octopus, shrimp, clamps, and lobsters.

After a nice meal, visitors usually head out to some of the amazing churches. Chiesa Santa Maria dell’Assunta is a unique building with its magnificent mosaics and contains several works of art. The beach that is located just underneath the cliff is spectacular and welcomes hundreds of tourists every single day during the summer season. What is a vacation without some cool souvenirs? Here, in Positano, there are a number of workshops, where local craftsmen create authentic handmade ceramic objects. Grab a drink at the Le Sirenuse hotel. It has an outdoor terrace that overlooks the surrounding hills. The panoramic view from this spot is simply breathtaking.
