Positano is a sharply vertical town in the hills of the Amalfi Coast. The streets are steep and narrow and lined with sophisticated boutiques, cafés and sun-bleached architecture. The most picturesque resort town on the Amalfi coast with spectacular coastal views, the mountains behind, a stack of jaunty houses, bougainvillea and, of course, lemon trees.
The Small List
Il San Pietro di Positano – The only hotel in Positano with a direct access to a private beach. The beach is a natural cove surrounded by crystal clear waters. In addition, there is a solarium, restaurant and bar by the sea. An elevator surprisingly carved into the cliff will swiftly carry you from the lobby down to this special, heavenly spot, James Bond style.
Le Sirenuse – Located at the center of the village of Positano, 230 feet above the sea, is an unbeatable oasis of peace and silence. Visit the Champagne & Oyster Bar and enjoy the breathtaking views over Positano. Sumptuously furnished and candlelit, it is open in the evenings from May to mid-October, weather permitting. It is the ideal place for a glass of champagne or a cocktail made to perfection.
Max Restaurant – Restaurant, art gallery, and wine bar “Max” is located in the heart of Positano. It is full of precious art, ancient works and fine cuisine.
La Sponda – Beautifully located in Le Sirenuse hotel, the ambience, above all, is breathtaking. La Sponda, clearly, is one of the most romantic restaurants in the world and overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea.
