There ́s nothing new to say about Positano, and it goes without saying that it is one of the most fascinating places in the world, where both during the day and at night- time you can go through wonderful experiences that you are unlikely to find elsewhere. hat said, tourists visiting Positano should bear in mind that this is a town with steep streets and more than its fair share of stairways, with many colourful pastel houses crammed on the hillside next to the beachfront, competing with each other for the best sea view. When you first arrive in Positano, do consider paying the tourist information office a visit. Located on the Via del Saracino, next to the Via dei Mulini and the central Piazza Flavio Gioia, this tourist information outlet is conveniently close to one of the town's most famous sights, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta. The town is undeniably a very special, unique and 'real' part of Campania, boasting dramatic cliff-hugging roads, popular beachfronts and some of the very best views that you are ever likely to experience. Apart from the beaches and water sports, other tourist attractions include cruises along the Amalfi Coast, the very beautiful Bay of Salerno, and a choice of walking trails, with a very appealing cliff side path connecting the Spiaggia Grande and Spiaggia del Fornillo beaches. Whilst there are no real museums of note within the town of Positano, there is plenty of history, particularly nearby. If you are able to take a few day trips, then nearby Naples is home to a very impressive selection of museums, with plenty of historical information about Campania. Alternatively, take a short excursion to Pompeii or Herculaneum and learn more about the Roman culture that once flourished in these ancient Roman towns, which are really like giant open-air museums, filled with treasures around every corner. Campania is a very popular part of Italy and has much to offer visiting tourists. During the summer, the town's waterfront is bustling with ferries, hydrofoils and other boats, which whisk people to destinations such as Amalfi, Naples, Ravello and Sorrento. The isle of Capri is especially close to Positano and makes for a very worthwhile day trip, offering everything from glorious sandy beaches and Mediterranean 'sea caves', to historic sights around the centrally located Piazza Umberto.
