Based in Campania, Positano is a small village on Italy's Amalfi coast. During the first half of the twentieth century, Positano was a relatively poor fishing village and began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s. The location became increasingly popular after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in Harper's Bazaar in May, 1953 writing : "Positano bites deep...It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone."
It's colourful cobbled streets are lined with traditional cafes, wooden canopies teaming with wisteria and fashionable boutiques. There's a real sense of southern Italy here with delicious pizzeria's and stoney beaches.
