The Amalfi Coast region
Naples, the capital of the Campania Region, is a complex and multi layered city. Beneath the frantic streets , the Baroque buildings and the many markets, sits another world made of catacombs, ancients cults and ruins.
"Commedia dell'arte " was born here and the ' Teatro San Carlo' is one of the world great opera house.
Naples will always be Italy's pizza capital. During a visit to Naples in 1889, the Italian King Umberto and his wife Queen Margherita summoned the city's top 'pizzaiolo' Raffaele Esposito to cook for them. Esposito based his creation of tomato, mozzarella and basil on the red, white and green flag of the newly unified Italy, winning the Queen's approval. It was subsequently named in her honour.
The views across the Bay of Naples are amazing. From Posillipo in Naples you can look East over the entire bay, round to Mt. Vesuvius and the Sorrentine Peninsula. Here you'll find Italy's great archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum - a small fishing town. Then, in 79BC, the Vesuvius erupted, burying the towns under a mix of molten lava, ash and mud.
The beautiful island of Capri was already a holiday resort in the 1st century AD. Emperor Tiberius had 12 villas built on the island. The best preserved is Villa Jovis.
This dramatically beautiful town clinging to the cliff face as if about to cascade into the turquoise waters below. Once a vital part of a mighty sea power, Positano is today a sophisticated Tyrrhenian resort on the central Amalfi Coast. Moorish- style architecture rises up steep slopes that gaze out on the Sirenuse Islands.
Smart boutiques, selling beach fashions for visitors to display on Grand Beach, bustle in the village. Ravello and other parts of the Campagna region are within easy reach of the town of 4,000. Boats depart daily for day trips to Capri and Ischia. Others head to Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.
Positano was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, and prospered in the 16th and 17th centuries. But by the mid-19th century, the town had fallen on hard times. More than half the population emigrated, mostly to Australia.
Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the 19th century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s, especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in Harper's Bazaar in May, 1953: "Positano bites deep", Steinbeck wrote. "It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone."
The church of Santa Maria Assunta features a dome made of majolica tiles as well as a 13th Byzantine century icon of a black Madonna. According to local legend, the icon had been stolen from Byzantium and was being transported by pirates across the Mediterranean. A terrible storm had blown up in the waters opposite Positano and the frightened sailors heard a voice on board saying "Posa, posa!" ("Put down! Put down!"). The precious icon was unloaded and carried to the fishing village and the storm abated.
Today, tourism is by far the major industry in Positano. Positano is also very popular for L"Albertissimo", an alcoholic tipple that can only be found at a small stall at the main harbour called "L'alternativa".
Positano has also become synonymous with beach fashion. Positano’s elegant shop windows are full of displays of brightly coloured robes, bikinis, bags, and Bermuda shorts all made in cool linen, gauze and cotton.
Positano is now home not only to skilled tailors but also to master cobblers, indeed, this is the place where to abandon your shoes and replace them with a pair of hand crafted sandals, made to measure whilst you wait. Positano is also the perfect spot to pick up that special coral cameo or even to order that oh so glamorous wedding dress!
Sunbathers, swimmers and water-sport enthusiasts enjoy a choice of beaches in Positano. The central Spiaggia Grande is located near the centre of the town. Four other popular beaches are La Porta, Ciumicello, Arienzo and Fomillo. Be prepared for beaches of small pebbles and grey volcanic sand, great views of the sea and rock formation.
Scenic boat rides up the Amalfi are also possible from Spiaggia Grande.
One of the wonders of the Amalfi Coast is food, sometimes above its amazing beauty.
- La Tagliata: simply one of the best restaurant in the area that delivers 100% of the time. Take the local yellow bus to Montepertuso, a small town up hill, or call the restaurant for thier pick up and drop off service, 10 minutes drive.
- Da Vincenzo: this great little spot is open for lunch and dinner and is about half way up the hills of Positano. you can walk or take the bus...it's easy!
- Grottino Azzurro: a favourite little local spot in Positano. Next door to the Bar Internazionale, near
Shopping: Since the 1960's Positano has cultivated his own siganture style, Mainstays are summery dresses, custom sandals and beachwear. Viale Pasitea is home to many of Positano's boutique. Safari, a small sandals shop in Via della Tartana, boast that customer can choose from more than 300 styles of sandals.
There are also a number of markets to choose from in the neighbouring towns. Try " Mercatino di Piano di Sorrento", a mixture of clothes, shoes, bags and linen. every Monday morning. Closed in August.
Take a hike! There are several hiking trails that begin on Positano's outskirts. The Sentiero degli Dei (The trail of Gods) is perhaps the best known trail - a magical walk through the countryside with 'divine' views of Amalfi Coast
A fantastic fireworks display takes place at mid-night on the beach of Spiaggia Grande, on the 15th August to commemorate the arrival of the Black Madonna.

"Good accomodations + wonderful views of Positano"
During our Italy vacation, we stayed at the Jenny house in Positano for 5 days in mid-Sept. I made the initial rental arrangements through Pia (of M&C Villas). She was very friendly and helpful. We met the landlady (Rosita) on arrival and she gave us a brief tour. Overall the apartment is comfortable, in good condition and with plenty of space for 5. There were a few minor maintenance issues that I reported after we left, but otherwise we had a great stay. Transportation is a breeze as the local bus stop is right outside the front door. Local markets are a short walk and there are endless places to shop and eat. Due to the popularity of the Amalfi Coast area, the amount of people visiting here has really increased over the past 12 years. (As reported by my sister who last visited here in 2001). So you will find that the traffic noise is quite noticeable in this apartment (especially scooters) - even into the wee hours of the morning. So pack a set of earplugs if you are a light sleeper. We all loved the area and hope to be back soon.
Very accurate description - thank you. Those minor issues are been taken care of. To all future guests: please do not wait to the end of your stay to report any kind of issue. It's always good to call the carer as soon as possible so that they can be addressed on the day. Cheers, Pia
