Positano is definitely the most famous and picturesque town on the Amalfi Coast. Also known as “the vertical city,” you will get the impression that it is lying on the rocky mountainside. I think this quote describes it perfectly:

In this incomprehensible landscape, only the sea is horizontal, and everything that is dry land is almost perpendicular ”.

Let’s see what are the must-sees of this Partenopean wonder.

What to see in Positano

  1. Santa Maria dell’Assunta Church: coming from the sea, it is the undisputed star of the landscape that stands before your eyes and the symbol of Positano. Brilliant in the sunlight, thanks to its golden and green tiles, it will leave you breathless. You will get the feeling that it is embedded in the very cliffs. All around, in fact, the characteristic pastel-colored houses seem to climb the rock face of this unique southern Italian town.

2. Lose yourself in the flowery alleys : as already mentioned, the magic of this city is its very vertical composition, its pergola lanes that climb up the mountain, the alleys that suddenly open onto breathtaking viewpoints.

Savor its scents and take the opportunity to take a look at the many shops specializing in the creation of local crafts, homemade limoncello and, of course, the well-known Positano Beach fashion .

3. Art Galleries : you will be amazed by the quantity of Art Galleries that hide among the little shops in the streets of the city.

When I was there, I was lucky enough to be able to attend this beautiful exhibition where the works of the Sicilian sculptor Giacinto Bosco were exhibited, including “I promise you the moon” .

4. Positano beach : exactly in front of the Church of Santa Maria dell’Assunta, there is Spiaggia Grande, mainly composed of pebbles. It is divided between an equipped area and a free beach. To access the free beach, one must first register on an App and/or pay the access fee of €10.00 per person. While, as for the equipped beach, it is convenient to book in advance.

These are beaches that have repeatedly won the Blue Flag , one of the world’s most recognised awards for beaches, marinas, and sustainable tourism boats. If you have time, it is an experience that I would recommend you to live: immerse yourself in the deep and crystalline waters, surrounded by a breathtaking landscape, eating a delicious slice of pizza … what else?

5. Culinary stop ? If you are wondering what and where to eat in Positano, I leave you with a couple of recommendations. Personally, having visited it during the day and not having much time available, I preferred to make a quick stop for lunch, eating a pizza at Collina Positano Bakery , a small takeaway / pizzeria. If not very crowded, you can eat a pizza on one of the tables inside or if not take pieces of take-away rotisserie. I then took the opportunity to cool off with a lemon slush, bought in a typical street kiosk at the price of € 2.50. And finally, coffee break (that will also help you to shelter from the high temperatures!).

However, the offer of traditional Neapolitan cuisine is so vast that you can choose according to any need and taste: first courses based on fresh fish; pizzas; Neapolitan rotisserie and, of course, a wide choice of desserts too! Neapolitan pastiera; “ricce” and “sfoglie” typical pastries in their gourmet versions; homemade lemon sorbet…and I could go on and on!

Finally, if you have time for a quiet lunch break and want to treat yourself to a little luxury…a must stop at Chez Black! It enjoys a prime location, at the foot of the Santa Maria dell’Assunta Church, and an enviable gastronomic selection. Could it be for this reason that even Italian VIPs choose it?

Hasta ahora la isla que más me ha sorprendido y encantado por su geología, colores y naturaleza (me falta todavía el Hierro y explorar BIEN La Palma 😃)

Aquí te dejo un pequeño itinerario para descubrir La Gomera en solo 2 días 🌴✨ 

Eso sí: viaja siempre con respeto de las areas protegidas, a un ritmo lento, apoyo los comercios locales y, sobretodo, ¡no contamines!

🚀 DÍA 1: Explora el corazón verde de La Gomera

• Parque Nacional de Garajonay: Sumérgete en la magia de este Patrimonio de la Humanidad y disfruta de las vistas desde el Alto del Garajonay (en días nítidos puedes admirar las islas de La Palma, El Hierro y Tenerife 😃) ¡Perfecto para senderistas! 🌲🥾

• Mirador de Agando: No te pierdas las vistas espectaculares. Ideal para fotos increíbles. 📸
• Chorros de Epina: no te olvides beber de los chorros pares ♀️ o impares ♂️ si quieres encontrar un amor bonito 🤭

🍽️ ¿Dónde comer? Prueba la comida local en el restaurante Los Chorros de Epina, todos los platos están deliciosos.

🌊 DÍA 2: Aventuras y vistas al mar

• Playa de Vallehermoso: Disfruta de un relajante día de playa con un toque de aventura. 🏖️🌊
• Mirador de Abrante: disfruta de las vistas desde unos de los miradores más bonito de la isla

• Agulo y Hermigua: Camina por sus encantadoras calles y descubre artesanías únicas.

🌛 Alojamiento: Quédate en una casa rural acogedora en Valle Gran Rey, yo me he alojado en Apartamentos Dominguez por 50€ la noche, y las vistas son espectaculares.

🚗 ¿Cómo moverse? Alquila un coche por aproximadamente 40€/día para explorar a tu ritmo.

💰 Gastos aproximados: 150€/persona incluyendo vuelos (para residentes) alojamiento, comida y transporte.

Y a tí ¿cuál es la isla que más te gusta?
