How to get to the city of Positano

By plane

It is a quiet and secluded place. That's why the question arises: How do I go to Positano? This town is connected to "the rest of the world" by a long narrow road that connects with Naples. There you have one of the airports most important internationals in Italy, leaves you about 40 km of your destination. Not bad, right?

From Naples you can arrive by road, but also in ferry. This is a more than recommended idea, since the Amalfi coast is beautiful. You can observe from a distance the treasures that await in Positano. It's like an appetizer.

Our recommendation is that use a good flight comparator to locate the flight that best suits your needs.

Flights to Positano

Move around the town

Maybe you are not used to this type of tourism. Most of the guides in Italy talk about trains, city buses and taxis, but in this case we will leave the wheels parked for a while. You are in a town literally embedded in a mountain, so there are no roads worth. Forget the sidewalks.

The streets are usually very steep, and almost all consist of a laaaarga staircase. Get ready Comfortable shoes because if you want to see things you will have to go up and down at all hours. Even to go to the beach! This is called turi-sport, you will come home more fit than ever.

Anyway there is a bus It takes you to other areas a little distant, thought especially for your dear visitors. In Positano they appreciate them very much, they will take good care of you.

To visit some places you will use a small boat. The boatmen make the journey interesting, they like to talk to tourists and tell them the stories and legends of the place.

What to see in Positano

A great attraction are the islands of the archipelago Li Galli, also called Sirenuse, by the legend of Ulisses and the sirens. It is formed by three islands, it is a charming place. Do you want to know the story? You'll have to ask the boatman ...

After seeing the town it is interesting to visit the neighboring villages. For example Monteperuso, with its dreamy waterfalls and exotic animals. O Aldea Nocelle, that to visit it you have to climb 1500 steps from the beach of Arienzo. Do not be afraid of the footstep, Nocelle village It offers privileged views over the entire Amalfi coast, it is simply wonderful.

Speaking of exotic things, do you know what an alíscafo is? It is a kind of boat that uses something similar to the wings of an airplane, also called hydrofoil. This system lifts the boat some of the water and makes it go faster. Its use is limited, since it only works for calm waters. The good news is that you can try it. It can go in alíscafo from Positano to Amalfi. The town itself is beautiful, but the hydrofoil trip makes the trip even more interesting.

But moving so much to visit all these places is hungry. How about a delicious Italian dinner? One of the restaurants in Positano offers a very original service. Its about Da Adolfo restaurant, and you have to access by boat. The restaurant is located on a small secluded beach where you can swim and cool off while preparing dinner. The most curious thing is where dinner is served: inside a cave. Good food, in good company. Also the price is not exorbitant, about 30 € in low season. Is there something more original than Positano? It is a box full of surprises.

I do not want to go through gastronomy without talking about Limoncello. You may have tried a substitute, if you want to discover the taste of authentic limoncello, take the trip to Positano. This liquor is made exclusively and exclusively with lemons from the Amalfi coast. It is taken at room temperature or very cold. Exquisite.

The beach of Positano ...

We finally reach the beaches. Definitely, Big Beach It is the best beach in Positano. Black sand and volcanic rocks highlight its calm and crystal clear water. You can see the fishing boats, even with their nets. This beach preserves the positinian essence, the fishing life of its first inhabitants.

Remember that the town is on the mountain, so when you look back you will be speechless. The pink and yellow color of the houses, crowned by the trees so bright and cheerful will leave you impressed. Yes see Positano inside it's nice, see it from outside, from the beach, is beautiful. And seen from the sea, add the gray sand and crystal clear water to the view. Leaves me speechless.

It is also the most visited beaches because there is the terminal of the motorboats and boats that lead to the island of Capri and other places of interest. Therefore, the months of high season there is more noise. If you decide to leave the village to see the islands, plan well: a morning outing and a relaxing afternoon in Spiaggia Grande is undoubtedly a good choice. In addition, at the beach you will find all the services you need to enjoy it.

But if you prefer a quieter area you can visit the beach of Fornillo. You arrive in 10 minutes or less taking a nice walk. Of course, even if you are not going to stay, visit Spiaggia Grande at least for the views. I insist because it's worth it, that you can not miss it.

Where to sleep

The attractiveness of Positano makes any area dazzle you. However, a remarkable hotel is Le Sirenuse, with luxury services and sea views. It also has some services for you although you do not stay in it, as a restaurant and ice cream shop. At least you can enjoy a few hours of a luxury hotel!

A more affordable hotel in Positano is Conca d'Orovery picturesque It is close to the beach, so close that the rooms offer views of the sea. He rests well, and eats more than well. The best, the price.

You have been able to see the possibilities offered by this jewel of the amalfitano paradise. Dare to enjoy them.
