The City

An ancient fishing village, chosen for its mild climate and the beauty of the place, was a holiday destination for the noblest and wealthiest Roman class.

Over the years, Positano has preserved its character as an elite tourist center. Its houses, all white with vaulted roofs, typically Mediterranean, gently slope towards the azure sea.

The numerous shops, nestled on the sides of narrow, elegant, and colorful streets, showcase the style known as "Moda Positano," which in itself is a significant attraction.

Among the monuments of high historical and artistic interest, the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta stands out with its wonderful maiolica dome.
