Positano Guide

The Italian village of Positano is located on the Amalfi Coast in the Campania region of Italy. The village began life as a fishing village and is today chic resort, famous for its hotels and boutiques along with its winding stairways that connect the town and the cliffs above. As land is scarce, buildings are stacked on top of each other, on steep slopes. The villages open areas are cultivated with vegetables and fruit which thrive in the village's fertile volcanic soil. The village has a couple of gravelly beaches which is rare in an area characterised by steep rocky cliffs that descend straight into the sea. Parts of the beaches are free but some sections have been cordoned off where visitors have to pay to use a sun bed. Unfortunately there aren't many cheap options in Positano, although the restaurants do offer a wide selection of options that should suit most people. Restaurants line the back of the beach, but if the atmosphere is too noisy and touristy for you, try ascending the steps or roads to a quieter spot.

From the village's port, ferry services operate to Amalfi, Capri and Salerno.

Sorrento Guide

The Italian town of Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
