    Positano is a positively perfect coastal getaway

    Set on Italy's romantic Amalfi Coast, Positano started its life as a port town in medieval times, spent the 19th and early 20th centuries as a small fishing village largely unknown to the outside world, and was discovered, first by author John Steinbeck and then by everyone else, as a picturesque, cliff-side vacation destination. Thanks to fabulously stylish boutiques matched with old-world charm, Positano vacation rentals make an ideal home base for families, friends and honeymooners looking to enjoy relaxing sun-soaked afternoons full of shopping, strolling and gelato.

    Explore Positano's pedestrian-friendly passages

    Pack your sturdiest walking shoes, because no matter how fabulous the views from the windows of Positano vacation rentals, most visitors spend their days out and about. There's only one street open to car traffic, which makes walking the narrow, winding streets a pleasure. Stop in local shops that offering everything from handmade trinkets and furniture to upmarket designer duds. After some shopping and relaxing on the beach, take a boat tour along the coast with an experienced guide who can point out all the villages and offer a little history on each.

    A land of saints, madonnas and ancient history

    The most striking sight in Positano is the town itself, a pyramid of pastel-coloured houses set on the slopes of a ravine that leads to the sea. The second most striking site is the Collegiate di Santa Maria Assunta, a church with a celebrated 13th-century Bysantine Icon, the Madonna di Positano, and a beautiful dome built in the 1920s. If that isn't enough to feast your eyes on, a trip to nearby Pompeii will only take about an hour. You can tour the archaeological site that was buried under the lava of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

    Summer madness or more soothing shoulder seasons?

    Positano's climate provides warm, sunny summers, and travellers flock to the area in July and August. If you prefer smaller crowds, you might find better deals on Positano vacation rentals if you book between April and June. You'll still find temps in the 70s and 80s, plus you'll see spring flowers in bloom. The autumn months are similarly warm and pleasant. You might find unbelievable bargains in winter, but be aware that some of the best cafes and restaurants shut up shop after the summer season.

    Join the gods on a hilltop walk through Positano

    Experienced hikers know to visit Sentiero degli Dei (or the Path of the Gods) as soon as they get to Positano, but if you like walking and want to snap a photo of the most stunning view of your life, you should know about it, too. The path links the nearby hilltop town of Agerola with Positano and, along the way, you'll pass caves and terraces lining the cliffs that fall away to the sea on one side and deep valleys on the other. Keep an eye out for gulls, crows and peregrine and kestrel falcons.
