Easily accessible by bus or private car, below are five of the many reasons to visit this summer.

Italy is known for its delightful food and drink which is inspired by the Mediterranean and Positano is no exception. Local delicacy ‘baba’ is a must-have dessert (a small cake drenched in butter and rum, usually filled with a soft cream).
The perfect shores of Positano are just one of the many ways to relax and enjoy your holiday on the Amalfi Coast. The fashionable Marina Grande is known for its brightly coloured umbrellas and clear waters all around the world.
One of the best places to relax and enjoy a drink in Positano has to be Buca di Bacco.
