Fly into the airport in Naples, and from there it’s an easy two-bus, two-hour journey to Positano. You can also catch a ferry in the summer or, you know, stop by on your yacht cruise along the Mediterranean.

Located in Italy’s idyllic Amalfi Coast, Positano is a cliffside town built of stacked pastel-coloured buildings framing a pebble stone beach. In the warmer months, you will find round umbrellas dotting the beach and boats scattered throughout the turquoise Mediterranean Sea.

The cutest lilac-framed alleys and doorways, winding paths, and stairs upon stairs of charming cliffside villas will make you fall in love with this little coastal gem.

No view is a bad view in this village, as all the buildings offer an incredible panorama of the paradise that surrounds you. A few of our favourite viewpoints are Caffรจ Positano Ristorante Bar and Flavio Gioia Hotel, and if you want budget accommodation with a view, Hostel Brikette has got you covered.
