POSITANO - The Beautiful Quaint Town On The Infamous Amalfi Coast- Italy's Popular Destination
Positano, the most well-known village on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, is renowned throughout the world for its moda positano, lively nightlife, and distinctive shops. You must go shopping in Positano if you're searching for vibrant clothing or traditional Italian sandals. Positano's urban layout consists of terraces, tiny, winding streets, and houses that cling to the mountainside. The numerous "steps" that lead down to the shore from the city center are typical. The Spiaggia Grande and Fornillo are Positano's primary beaches; the others can all be reached primarily by watercraft.

HOW TO REACH POSITANO
- Flight - The Naples Capodichino Airport, which is about an hour distant from Positano and the Amalfi Coast, is the closest airport. Although it is close to Salerno, the Pontecagnano airport mainly serves private aircraft. Road - Even though the view from your car window may be breathtaking, the road hugging the Amalfi Coast can get very congested during the months of July and August and on public holidays. Spending hours stuck in a traffic jam in the Mediterranean heat is not enjoyable. Another choice is to take the Metropolitana subway's blue line to the Rome Tiburtina railway station, and then board one of the Autolinee Marozzi buses that run between Rome and Amalfi and Sorrento from there. The most affordable method to travel to Positano is by SITA transport. The 45-minute bus ride from Sorrento to Positano costs two euros. Additionally, the vistas from the bus are truly breathtaking. Sit on the right side of the carriage if possible.
- Rail - Although there is no direct train from either the Naples or Rome airports to Positano, you can take the train to a nearby Amalfi Coast city like Sorrento or Salerno instead.
- Ferry - You can travel to Positano by boat during the day from Naples, Sorrento, Salerno, or Amalfi. Just keep in mind that your flight will probably cost more if you have luggage.
HOW TO GET AROUND
- Rental - The SS163, also known as "Amalfi Drive," has only one lane in each way and is frequently very congested. We advise using the utmost care behind the wheel due to the traffic and the never-ending curves. The most enjoyable way to travel around the Amalfi Coast is on a moped or motorbike because it gives visitors total freedom to explore the area without worrying about being stuck in traffic or finding a parking spot.
- Bus - All of the Amalfi Coast towns are connected by buses provided by the Sita bus company. Buses are common, but because of the SS163's heavy traffic, they frequently do not operate on time. Be aware that buses do not operate at night, so if you need to travel between towns after hours without a car, you will need to take a taxi.
- Taxi - Taxis are available in the major coastal cities and are available on the Amalfi Coast as well. Many cabs are minivans with seating for up to seven people. Remember that there are no ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft along the shore, and taxis can be quite pricey.
