Thanks to the mild climate and the beauty of the landscape, Positano has been a holiday resort since the time of the Roman Empire, as evidenced by the discovery of a villa and other very recent discoveries, dating back to 2004.
Typical are the many “stairways” that reach down from the top of the town to the beach. The main beaches are: Spiaggia Grande and Fornillo, both within walking distance. The others are: La Porta, Arienzo, San Pietro Laurito.
The Spiaggia Grande is dominated by the Mother Church dedicated to the Madonna S.Maria Assunta.
The town is full of boutiques that produce and sell the “Positano Fashion”, famous throughout the world.
