Experience that dolce vita lifestyle with holidays to Positano – a lively village full of upscale boutiques and pocket-sized trattorias.

Sun, sea and stars

Pastel-painted facades, sun-soaked cliffs and delicious delicacies – Positano is Italy's answer to the Hollywood Hills. It's been a celeb hotspot for decades and still draws a star-studded crowd to this day. Not bad for a one-time fishing village, though with looks like this, it's easy to understand the fuss.

Edge of the sea

Teetering on the edge of the Amalfi Coast, this south Italian village proudly looks out over a rugged emerald shore. Spiaggia del Fornillo is a pebbly stretch lined with fun-loving bars. Meanwhile, Spiaggia Grande's sandy expanse comes dotted with deckchairs – perfect for catching those Mediterranean rays.

Traditional treats

Flower-filled courtyards and lemon-themed ceramic shops are ready and waiting to join your photo album around every little corner of Positano. Sip a cappuccino after indulging in homemade pasta at an old-school trattoria – you sure won't leave this holiday feeling hungry.

History, mythos and more

When it comes to culture stops, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta steals the show. Pop inside for a look back at local history, and learn the mythical siren stories of this coastal gem. There's plenty further afield too, with scenic stops like Sorrento and Amalfi each about a 40-minute drive through jaw-dropping land-and-seascapes.
