Positano has never been a big place. Even now, its permanent population is only around four thousand people. This isn't a place where history has been made, where great palaces have been built or wars have been fought. That's not what brings people here.
Instead, it's the scenic beauty of the town. Its setting on tall cliffs above the bright Mediterranean Sea couldn't be more picturesque. And the town itself, known for its colorful houses and its beautiful church, only enhances the gorgeous landscape that surrounds it.
Positano has been inhabited since the Stone Age, when hunter-gatherers made a home in caves on the cliffs. In the first century BC, wealthy Romans built villas in the hills overlooking the sea, beginning the long history of the Amalfi coast as a vacation destination. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Positano reverted to its status as a village supported primarily by fishing and agriculture. During the 10th and 11th centuries, it became part of the independent state known as the Republic of Amalfi. Later, in the 15th and 16th centuries, its port made it a wealthy market town. However, this prosperity didn’t last. The town’s economy faltered in the middle of the 19th century, and Positano went into a steep decline, which saw many of its residents emigrate to America.
That all changed beginning in the 1950s, when an influx of foreign tourists discovered the charm of the village. Writer John Steinbeck was one of them, and his essay on Positano in 1953 helped to bring the place to the attention of the wider world. Now, the Amalfi coast as a whole receives around five million visitors per year.
Positano is a small place, and the town itself can be explored in a single day. But thanks to the presence of mountains and sea, not to mention the other charming towns of the Amalfi coast, there’s plenty to do in and around Positano.
See the towns of the Amalfi Coast on a boat trip. Several operators will take you out on a speedboat or a traditional fishing boat to see Positano in the surrounding villages in the best way possible: from the sea. There are few more relaxing experiences than drifting along over the calm waters and seeing one beautiful village after another.
Fine-tune your tan by hitting the beach. Despite its small size, Positano has a number of beaches for visitors to enjoy. The Marina Grande beach is free for anyone to visit, but you'll want to stake out your spot early. For a little more luxury, you could visit one of the private beach clubs and rent an umbrella and a sun lounger to really enjoy your day.
Visit a natural wonder at the Grotta dello Smeraldo, or emerald cave. This sea cave can be reached by boat from Positano and is known for the beauty of its bright green water. A local guide will take you inside on a rowboat for a short tour of the cave to see the eerie glow of the sun that comes through the water here.
Stretch your legs on the Sentiero degli Dei. This famous hiking trail runs through the hills above Positano, connecting some of the villages of the Amalfi coast and offering unsurpassed views over the ocean. Bring plenty of water for this five-mile trail, and whatever you do, don't forget your camera.
Enjoy the local produce of the region with a wine tasting. The climate of the Amalfi coast lends itself to grape production, and you can try some of the local wines and pair them with delicious Italian cuisine in a restaurant just above Positano. A sommelier will help you enjoy the huge variety of wines from the region, and you may come away with a new favorite.
Positano can be reached by bus from the nearest town, Sorrento. The bus connects all the Amalfi coast villages, but the winding mountain road takes some time to travel.
You can also reach Positano by ferry from either Sorrento to the north or Salerno to the south. The ferries run multiple times a day from the Marina Grande, with some going directly to the city and others stopping at the smaller villages along the way.
There is an internal bus service within Positano. The local bus connects the outskirts of the village with the main bus depot at Marina Grande.
The absolute best way to experience a place like Positano is on foot. Many of the narrow streets are too small for vehicle traffic, and the quaint shops, bars, and restaurants are often tucked away in places you can only reach by foot. However, these narrow streets can get crowded at times, and you don't want to be carrying more than you need to.
Bounce can help you explore Positano by giving you a place to store heavy bags. Drop off any size of bags for as long as you like at a Positano luggage storage shop so you can get around more easily.
Sorrento: Most visitors reach Positano and the Amalfi Coast via Sorrento. But this coastal city is more than just a means to an end. Take in the exciting vibe of the city at Piazza Tasso, or enjoy sweeping views from Villa Comunale. Like most towns in Italy, Sorrento is also home to some exceptional restaurants, and the seafood is especially well-regarded. Before making the journey to Sorrento, make sure to drop off unneeded bags at a luggage storage service in Positano to make your trip easier.
Naples: One of Italy's largest cities, Naples lies to the north of Positano under the shadow of the volcano Vesuvius. Although the city has suffered from a bad reputation, Naples has cleaned up its act dramatically in the past few decades and is now a fascinating place to visit. This beautiful city is home to a stunning cathedral, priceless works of art, and the up-and-coming Vomero district on the hills overlooking the sea. It's also the birthplace of pizza, and is worth visiting for the food alone.
Capri: A short ferry ride from Naples or Sorrento brings you to the island of Capri. This beautiful island was once the favorite vacation destination of Roman emperors and is still home to famous names in the world of fashion, film, and finance. It's not hard to see why. With its crystal-clear sea, beautiful weather, abundant orchards, and interesting ruins, Capri is a dreamlike place to visit, and one you'll never forget.
Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
