Positano is a positively postcard-worthy place

Tucked into the steep hills of Italy's renowned Amalfi Coast, the stunning town of Positano is one of the most picture-perfect places you'll find anywhere in Italy. Once an impoverished fishing village, today it's one of the country's biggest tourist draws, thanks in large part to the tiers of colorful houses that fill the hills leading down to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Whether you're looking to shop, spend some quality time on the beach, or just kick back in a cafe that's worthy of a movie set, a Positano vacation rental has something for everyone in your travel crew.

Things to do

Positano will unleash your inner architecture buff

The town may be small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in historic architecture. While you could spend days winding through the colorful streets, the biggest draw is the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta, easily spotted by its majolica-tiled dome, which houses a Byzantine black Madonna icon. Museum lovers will want to spend some time wandering through the Municipal Museum or the Paper Mill Museum. For wonders of a more natural variety, head to the stunning Emerald Grotto nearby.

Activities

You'll fall in love with pebble beaches (no pesky sand here)

If you're only used to sandy beaches, you're in for a new treat—and a cleaner suitcase when you get home from your Positano vacation rental. The pebble beaches here are some of the best around, including Fornillo, Arienzo, and Laurito beaches. The centerpiece of them all is Marina Grande Beach, where the nightlife is as big of a draw. For the best views, explore the many scenic trails along the breathtaking cliffs. If heights aren't your thing, you can opt instead for a boat charter or sea taxi tour of the coast. Be sure to save some time to try the limoncello.

Weather

Pleasant days make for lovely Positano stays

Like much of the Mediterranean region, Positano is blessed with relatively mild winters and warm summers. The lows in the coolest months of November to April drop into the 40s overnight, so you'll probably want to pack layers. You'll generally never have to worry about snow, though (but this is when you'll get the most rain). Summers are much drier, with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid-70s to mid-80s from June through September, making it the perfect time to take a dip in the cool sea waters.

Natural features

Some of the prettiest cliffs you ever did see

The western shores of Italy are known for their steep, picturesque cliffs, and the Amalfi Coast is certainly no exception. You'll want to pack some sturdy shoes when you head to your Positano vacation rental, because exploring the town will involve walking lots of steep hills (don't worry, it's worth it for the scenery). The pebble beaches of the Mediterranean Sea are at the base of it all, while heading inland will take you to the mountains. Go a bit farther and you'll reach Mount Vesuvius, one of the most famous (or infamous) volcanoes in the world.
