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.

Capri Guide

The Italian island of Capri is located in the Bay of Naples, south of the city of Naples and close to the tip of the Amalfi Peninsular, in the Campania region of Southern Italy. The island is a popular destination in its own right but is also popular for short breaks with people visiting Naples or the Amalfi Coast. The island, which is made of limestone rock, is very picturesque and has long been a favourite with Roman Emperors, artists, writers and the rich and famous. Today, Capri is still one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. Popular attraction on the island include the Marina Piccola, the Belvedere of Tragara, the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea, the town of Anacapri the Blue Grotto and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.

There are frequent ferry connections from the island to the city of Naples and to Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast. There are also less frequent ferries to Positano on the Amalfi Coast and the island of Ischia.
