Between mountains and the sea, the town of Positano climbs the sheer cliff side with pastel colored houses stacked one on top of the next. The heart of Positano is just steps away from the beach at Marina Grande and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and is lined with restaurants and boutiques. From this vantage point, visitors can look up at the buildings piled up like colorful boxes and understand why Positano is known as “The Vertical City.” Part of its unique charm is its relative isolation in comparison to other popular towns such as Sorrento or Amalfi. The most comfortable way to arrive in Positano is by boat from nearby Amalfi or from Naples, Capri, Sorrento and Salerno.
