La Dolce Vita in Positano

Surging from a shimmering cobalt-blue sea, the idyllic coastal village of Positano effortlessly evokes la dolce vita with its pastel-hued hillside villas, lemon-tree lined streets and cascading, multi-colored bougainvillea growing everywhere.

Like a haven on the shores of the twinkling Mediterranean, Positano is a timeless jewel on the Amalfi Coast. Enveloped in rustic charm, the picturesque seaside town is the perfect place to embrace the genuine Italian way of life.

Imagine long golden days and soft, sultry nights savoring classic southern cuisine accompanied by a glass of Italian wine and of course, a shot of limoncello. As an Italian proverb says “Anni, amori e bicchieri di vino nun se contano mai ” (Years, lovers and glasses of wine should never be counted)!

Follow the seemingly never-ending steps and they will lead you to undiscovered porticoes, walled gardens full of bright and fragrant, lemon trees, secret passageways and hidden piazzas lined with charming cafes.

Stroll over to the silvery pebble beaches, grab a lounge chair or keep cool under the restaurant’s shaded terraces and enjoy the “beauty of doing nothing”.

The upper part of Positano offers seductive panoramas of the multi-colored town, the bay and the three islands of “Li Galli”, once home of the sirens of Homer’s Odysseus. When the night falls, Positano exudes such a romantic, dream-like atmosphere hard to describe with words.

    I cannot say thank you enough for what your breathtaking photos have inspired me to plan and create. Alongside the incredible movie ‘Under the Tuscan sun’ and the stunningly beautiful and sophisticatedly humble Diane Lane’s performance in it, I’ve found a passion for this beautiful area i didn’t realize was so strong. Thank you for your shares! BambeeLyn
