My wife and I traveled to Italy last week for our honeymoon. We decided to go a little off the path down to Positano to get some "beach" in and to also relax for a few days.
Positano is an awesome small little town, one of a few in the area, that is built vertically on a cliff/mountain. I was driving a rental car, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared to drive. the roads were narrow, the cliff steep, but the scenery was gorgeous. We stopped a few times to get some scenic views of the area.
Positano is known for their lemons, leather sandals, and friendly locals. I would recommend Positano as a great base camp if you are staying down in southern Italy.
Bars and nightlife
Lovely downtown with great food, live music on the streets, and friendly people.
