Positano is at the center of the famous Amalfi Coast south of Naples.
Just across from the
town are Le Galli islands, three islets
believed to be the residence of the mythical Sirens from Homer's Odyssey.
Positano is one of Italy's most romantic and luxurious vacation
spots. Built vertically on the face of a cliff, it started out as a
fishing village and became popular with writers and artists in the
1950's. Today it's a fashionable resort yet still retains its charm.
Positano is a pedestrian town (with many stairs) and its pretty
pastel colored houses and flowers make it very picturesque.
