Positano Italy

Positano Italy – Things to do in Positano – Positano beach. As already written in the post “Amalfi Coast Towns” Positano is one of the best towns on the Amalfi Coast. Its beauty enchants many people.

Positano Italy

As a result, maybe Positano is the best town to stay in especially in the summertime but not in the low season. Positano is the town most affected by the touristic seasons!

Precious Advises

For our own eperience we want to give you the following precious advices.

  • In August and the more busy seasons prefer the boat to the bus when you have to move. When there are many people, the bus times aren’t trustworthy and if the bus is full it doesn’t stop and it leaves you at the bus stop :(. The boat times are instead always right.
  • Do not pack too many things because Positano is full of stairs and it isn’t easy to arrive at your hotel with big and heavy bags. If you don’t want to renounce to some of your stuff use the porterage service. The porterage service brings your bags from the tourist port of Positano to your hotel. In this way, you’ll not have a heart attack 😉 if you’re not trained.
  • Avoid the 2 central weeks of August if you can. Too hot and too crowded.

6 very amazing Italian Amalfi Coast Towns – The Amalfi Coast is famous worldwide and that’s why we want to know more about the Amalfi Coast Towns that make this coast so special. We want to understand their main characteristics and their main attractions.

Let’s see the main cities of the Amalfi Coast, their characteristics and when you can go.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

Sorrento

Sorrento has a big city center with many shops of any kind. It’s more like a city than a town and despite it’s a perfect place for shopping and where to spend the evening, this can make you lose the Amalfi Coast atmosphere.

Anyway, it has a very nice balcony on the sea where you can have your coffee or drink with a beautiful view. Then from Sorrento, you can see something you can’t see from Positano or Amalfi: the volcano Vesuvius.

In the following video, you can see this beautiful view from this balcony at sunset time. Watch the video and subscribe to our YouTube Channel if you aren’t already subscribed! Subscribe here!

In the summertime, I would prefer to stay in a more Amalfitan style town than in Sorrento. In low season, however, it’s the best place to be in.

If you are In Sorrento in summer for many reasons you can go to Marina Grande for a day on the beach. As I’ve already said it’s not the best beach on the Amalfi Coast but it’s cute.

In Marina Grande, there are many restaurants. Dinner in one of those restaurants, especially those in the see it’s a beautiful experience. You can enjoy the sunset on the sea.

We can now move to the next Amalfi Coast Town: Positano. So let’s take the boat for Positano.

Positano

We’re now arriving one of the best village town in Amalfi Coast: Positano.

Many people are enchanted by its beauty.

The Amalfi Cathedral is the symbol of the city. It’s in Piazza del Duomo and it’s built with medieval Roman Catholic style.

Amalfi has a nice beach but it isn’t the only beach in the Amalfi area. There are also other beautiful hidden beaches you can easily get to by boat from Amalfi. Il Duoglio is one of these beaches. Watch the following so you can see the coast in the Amalfi area.

In Amalfi you can take the boat and visit the Emerald Grotto. You can arrive at the Emerald Grotto also without the boat tour, anyway it’s a good way to admire the beautiful Amalfi Coast from the sea.

The Emerald Grotto is not very big in size but the spectacle you’ll see it’s marvelous. The water into the grotto takes an intense green hue.

It’s a good choice to stay in Amalfi in the tourist season although it’s quite good also in the low season.

Ravello Italy

Ravello Italy is a town built on the side of a mountain. Consequently, you don’t have the beach in Ravello Italy, but you have a beautiful view of the Amalfi Coast.

In Ravello there are the 2 famous villas:

  • Villa Rufolo
  • Villa Cimbrione

In Villa Cimbrone there is the amazing terrace of infinity.

Top 7 Sorento Italy

Here’s what to see in Sorrento, the list of our 7 top attractions:

  • Villa Comunale Sorrento
  • The baths of Queen Giovanna
  • Marina Grande
  • The center of Sorrento with all the beautiful shops
  • The beaches of Sorrento
  • Marina Piccola
  • The sunset

Villa Comunale Sorrento

The municipal villa of Sorrento is the best place from where you can enjoy the sunset and see the baths of Sorrento from above.

Bagni Regina Giovanna

The baths of Queen Giovanna is a very special place where you can enjoy the sea. They are easily accessible by bus. I do not recommend you to get there on foot because although they are not very far from Sorrento, it is a long walk to do on foot and the road in some places does not have a pedestrian area.


If you go in August you should arrive very early because it is not very big and it gets easily crowded.

Marina Grande Sorrento

Watch the following video which shows you the beautiful view of Marina Grande Sorento Illuminata. Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already: Subscribe here!

The beautiful Sunset

Watching the sunset maybe during a good dinner is really impressive in Sorrento. A good idea is to go to one of the restaurants on the Marina Grande to observe it.

Another good idea is to have dinner in one of Sorrento’s magnificent restaurants with a panoramic terrace.

One of these restaurants is the Vittoria Terrace restaurant that is on the top of the Continental hotel.

There is nothing better than going up to the terrace before the sun goes down for an aperitif and watching the change on the horizon. Moreover, in front of us, we have the Vesuvius that characterizes the Sorrento view.

In fact, the volcano Vesuvius is clearly visible from Sorrento but not from other Amalfi Coast towns such as Positano and Amalfi.

Sorento Italy beaches

The main 3 beaches in Sorrento are the following:

  • The Sorento public beach and the beach establishments
  • Marina Grande Sorrento
  • The baths of Queen Giovanna

The Sorento public beach and the beach establishments

The Sorento public beach is close to the center and Marina Piccola. This beach is quite small but many people can come here thanks to the beach establishments that are next to the beach.

These bathing establishments use docks that extend towards the sea. Watch the following video in order to understand better.

Sorrento is characterized by many things but surely the Sorrento beach establishments are one of the things you remember about Sorrento. The Sorrento baths are definitely a nice place to go sunbathing and swimming but they are also very beautiful seen from above.

Let’s see in this video the Sorrento beach establishments on a day of summer while people take the sun and at the sunset time from the Villa Comunale of Sorrento. In fact, the municipal villa is an excellent place to meet before dinner to enjoy the Amalfi Coast view.

Marina Piccola Sorrento

If you are in Sorrento I think you’d like to visit other Amalfi Coast towns. From Sorrento, you can easily get to Capri and Positano by boat.

You can take a boat for Capri or Positano in Marina Piccola that is on the opposite side of Marina Grande.

From Marina Piccola you can see more than the boats and the seagulls: you can also see the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. This hotel is part of the Sorrento skyline and you can easily notice it because it’s built on the rock and it’s quite colorful. It certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.

Watch the following video so you’ll understand better what I mean.

You are now ready for a new adventure. Let’s go to Positano by boat. While sailing we have the pleasure of enjoying the most hidden beauties of the Amalfi Coast.

During our trip, we pass in front of the western Amalfi Coast point: Punta Campanella. Punta Campanella is right in front of Capri island and while we pass here we have Punta Campanella on one side and Capri Island on the other side.

For the moment, however, let’s see these beautiful cliffs of the Amalfi Coast. Watch the following video!

It is an elegant restaurant with a nice view, good food and it is not too expensive. The staff is very friendly but at the same time professional.

For the food we all appreciated the appetizer offert by the restaurant: fiori di zucca in pastella. It was very delicious. We also appreciated the ravioli because they had a very good combinations of ingredients: pesto, tomato and mozzarella di bufala was a great combination.

The pasta linguine with the lobster was very good. The linguine were amazing because the taste was excellent and also the portion was big. Also the lobster had a good size in the pasta for the price.

Everybody of us also appreciated the dessert delizia al limone because it was super creamy, sweet and just the right amount of lemon.

The atmosphere is perfect because you have an elegant restaurant, with a special view on Positano, a good service, the people in the restaurant are friendly and furthermore there is also the music that makes your experience to the Tridente restaurant more special.

La Sponda

Eating in this restaurant is a really nice experince especially if you’re not on a budget because this restaurant is very expensive. La Sponda is very elegant and the menus offers a different taste and not simple dishes.

The atmosphere is the best among all the restaurants in Positano. There were the mandolins and 2 mans normally play and sing tipical italian songs and other famous song such like the Godfather. They also come next to your table and they make you feel very special. Furthermore the view is amazing.

It is not a good place for kids because the menu doesn’t contain tipical food and the taste of this dishes maybe results a little strange if you’re not used to eat it and you are used to eat simple food.

We could insert the Sponda to the very top of our list but it is very expensive and it not for everybody.

La Tagliata

The Tagliata is very good, they give you huge portions and so you get a good value for your money. The quality of the food is good, they don’t give you fancy food but it’s homemade food, rustic.

The view of the Tagliata is excellent. If you go for the sunset you have an amazing view especially if you ask for a table close to the window in order to sit near the balcony because the view in the inside isn’t as good.

It’s a good place especially for families becaouse it isn’t super fancy. You don’t need to dress up and it also convinient because they bring you up with the shuttle and they bring you to the restaurant. In this way you don’t need to warry about the drive because it’s not so easy to get here by car because in this area they are quite crazy drivers. ;).

The following video shows you the amazing view from this restaurant terrace at sunset time.

Best restaurants in Positano Italy without a view

There are other very good restaurants in Positano but that they don’t have a view. Here you can find the list of the restaurants in Positano we have selected for you.

  • La Taverna del Leone
  • Il Saraceno
  • Da Vincenzo

Da Vincenzo

It’s a very good restaurant. The panzerotti they have are very good because they are cruncy. The ravioli with scamorza, pomodori and melanzane were very appraciated in our table. Shrimp tempura was very good. The tempura was light but crunchy and they give you big shrimps.

The best dessert in this restaurnat we have tasted is the cheesecake with berries.

This restaurnat offers a very good value for the price. They have very good food, the restaurant is nice and is located in Positano. You don’t need any transportation to get here if you stay in Positano.

Da Vincenzo you don’t have the view but you can see amazing view soon after you are out odf the restaurant.

Il Saraceno

It’s a good restaurant especially for the pizza. The pizza is very good for good price in Positano. It’s a place where you can go with your family and a place where you can eat good italian pizza.

The pizza is excellent and it has the good quantity of toppings in the middle and the crost wasn’t too big. For example one of our pizzas had good tomatos, bufala and mozzarella. The crost was also cooked perfectly.

The location isn’t special because there is no view it is a easy place for a pizza. It’s a place where you can go with your children. About the service the waiters are sometimes pushy but also friendly.

La Taverna del Leone

It’s not in the center of Positano but you don’t have problem to get to the restaurant because they have a shuttle service. The restaurant is along the main road and you dont have any view.

For the amount of food and the quality the price is reasonable. They have scallops with the bacon that are very good. We also liked the cheesecake but what the best dessert was the croccante con torroncino: very delicious!

We appreciate the service because it wasn’t super professional but they were very reasonable to adapt the tasting menu to our needs. Infact in this restaurant you can choose a tasting menu of 5 dishes.

Pompeii Ruins: Amphitheater Pompeii, Villa of Mysteries …

Pompeii Ruins: Amphitheater Pompeii, Villa of Mysteries

Pompeii Ruins: Amphitheater Pompeii, Villa of Mysteries … Pompeii is the original village buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvio in 79 d.C.

Why Pompeii Ruins are worthy to be visited

There are several reasons why you should visit Pompeii Ruins:

  • it’s an original roman city and not rebuilt
  • many houses are well preserved
  • You can see the different areas of an ancient roman city: the forum, the arena, the main road and other areas
  • It’s unique in the world

How long does it take to get through Pompeii?

Pompeii ruins are very big. The excavations done throughout the years have brought to light a big part of the ancient city. This is the big difference between Pompeii and Herculaneum. In Herculaneum only a little part has been excavated so the visit is faster than the visit here in the Pompeii Ruins.

As you see in the following picture it takes 27 minutes to go directly and without stops from the amphitheater to the Villa of the Mysteries. This may help you to undestand how big Pompeii is but you should add the time to go through all the other important streets and go inside the buildings.

Amphitheater Pompeii

This arena has a long history and a curiosity is that it’s been used by the Pink Floyd in 1971.

The utmost of your visit is when you arrive to Villa of the mysteries. This villa is a very good example of roman villas. It was a very luxory villa outside the walls of the city and it had the see view.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast

Best Amalfi Coast Sunset Positano Italy

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast? That’s a good question! Especially because each city of the Amalfi Coast has its own characteristics. All the Amalfi Coast is beautiful but there are a few factors we should consider before making our choise.

The first factor we can consider is the season. The touristic season finishes at the first weekend of November. The result is that after this weekend many hotels and restaurants are closed. Instead most of the shops are opened till the end of the year. The result is that the worst period of the year to go to the Amalfi Coast is between January and March, before the beginning of the new season.

Some Amalfi Coast Towns are more influenced by the tourist season than others. That’s why our choice of where to stay in Amalfi Coast is different in summer and winter.

Let’s now consider our best choice where to stay in Amalfi Coast in summer.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast in Summer

The best choice in summer is Positano. It has a very beutiful beach and than you can do many things here. It’s full of hotels restaurant and shops. You can easily get to Capri by boat in about half a hour. From Positano you can easily visit the other Amalfi Coast Towns.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast in Winter

The best choice in winter is Sorrento. This one of the biggest Amalfi Coast Towns and is the one less affected by the tourist seasons. Also in winter you have more chance to find the restaurants, hotel and other attractions opened.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast without a car

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast without a car? The Amalfi Coast Towns are well connected by public transportations. In this way it isn’t a big problem to get from one city to another by car. Anyway the trasportation times are longer by bus than by car. So it’s much better to stay in one of the city in the middle of the Amalfi Coast. In this way you can it will not take to long visit the Amalfi Coast towns to the left and to the right.

In the Amalfi Coast there are very beautiful hotels far from the city centers. If you don’t have the car is better to stay in an Amalfi Coast town, in the center. In this way you can go to the restaurants, shops on foot and easily find everything you need.

Mountains or sea?

In the Amalfi Coast there are towns located on the see but other on the mountains. Despite the view from the mountains is beautiful it is not confortable chose towns like Ravello that are not directly on the sea.

Every time you would wanted to go somewhere, you have to come down from the mountain to get to the Amalfi Coast main road to than get to your destination.

Much better to stay in Positano where you have everything you need and if you want to go to Ravello or on the mountain for a path you can go… otherwise you can relax on the beach 😉 …

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast?

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? If you can choose when to visit the Amalfi Coast you should go from May to June. This is the time when spring explodes in a profusion of smells and colors and in especially in June the sun is warm enough to enjoy the sea.

What is the best month to visit the Amalfi Coast?

May is the best month for a trip to the Amalfi Coast: perfect temperatures, bright colors and it isn’t too crowded.

Sorrento is very closed to Pompeii. You can arrive in Pompeii in only half an hour by train. Spring is a very good time also to visit Pompeii. In Spring it’s warm but not too hot and you can spend all the day in the ruins without particular problems.

Is August a good time to visit the Amalfi Coast?

It can be but before deciding you should understand how is the Amalfi Coast in Summer. In July and August in fact the Amalfi Coast is very crowded and the weather is very hot. These aren’t the best month for the Amalfi Coast especially if you want to include places such as Herculaneum or Pompeii to your trip. Pompeii needs a full day and it’s very exhausting when it’s too hot.

Anyway there are also good advantages. It’s a very good time to swim. Than public transportation times are extended. In this way you have more time to visit places.

You can see the following example. If you go by boat to Amalfi for a day trip from Positano you have to come back at 6 pm in June but after July you can come back later at 9:30 pm. In fact in the website that ride will be available in summer.

You can see a few pictures I took at the end of October.

In october you can dress with only a light jacket and sometime is warm and a T-shirt is enough.

October is also a good month to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Can you swim in Amalfi in October?

You normally can’t swim … but the last few years October was warmer than normal…

The Amalfi Coast in winter

The winter isn’t the best time to visit Amalfi Coast. As we’ve already explained in the post “Amalfi Coast Towns” the touristic season finishes at the first weekend of November. The result is that after this weekend many hotels and restaurants are closed.

If you visit the Amalfi Coast in winter it’s better you stay in Sorrento. It’s one of the biggest Amalfi Coast towns and it’s the town less affected by the touristic seasons. In this way you can have all the services you need and If you want visit the other town during the day.
