Positano is the queen of the kingdom. It’s one of the most popular and well-known towns, but with good reason. The tumble of pastel houses that cascade down the mountainside forming a candy-coloured pyramid shape is the most iconic image of the Amalfi Coast.
Descend the thousand steps from Piazza dei Mulini to the Spiaggia Grande, and you will see neatly organised rows of yellow and orange striped sun loungers and umbrellas stretched out in front of a turquoise sea. Turn around and take in the town’s Santa Maria Assunta cathedral, its dome covered with an intricate mosaic of green, yellow and dark blue tiles.
