Often referred to as the gem of the Amalfi Coast, Positano remains one of southern Italy's most sought-after vacation locales, thanks to its hillside location and picturesque, pastel buildings.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Positano: Amalfi (Wine Tours & Tastings, Centro Storico, & more) and Ravello (Villa Rufolo, Villa Cimbrone Gardens, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Sentiero degli dei (Path of the Gods), take in panoramic vistas at Torre di Grado, and head outdoors with I Suoni degli Dei - Pelagos.

To find maps, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Positano online vacation maker .
