Without any doubt Positano is one of the pearls of the Amalfi Coast: the charm of the landscapes, its pastel colours and its crystal waters attract millions of visitors every year. The huge amount of people exploring the coast and the morphology of the territory, do not help the Amalfi Coast to avoid the traffic especially during the summer season. That’s why it is better not to be unprepared: our best  suggestion to explore some of the most suggestive beaches in Southern Italy is definitely to rent a scooter (linkato al servizio) in order to be able to move freely , in the fastest and most comfortable way.

Discover Positano

Declared in 1997, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Positano probably owes its name to Poseidon, god of the sea of ​​Greek culture, who would have founded the town for the sake of nymph Pasitea.

In the “Geography of Strabo” of the first century BC, in fact, the small archipelago of Le Sireneuse, in front of Positano, currently known as Li Galli, is described as the place where the Sirens used to live and where they used to attract the sailors with the sound of their voice. During the Roman Empire, Positano, like other places of the Amalfi coast, was chosen by the nobles as a privileged place of “otium” where to spend their free time in luxurious residences, with spectacular views.

But, where to relax today in Positano?

Here we have a TOP 5 of the must beautiful beaches to visit:
