Finally drink the best liqueur of the coast “ LIMONCELLO” and nocino produced with the famous nuts of the place.
Positano is represented by the myriad of small streets and narrow streets that intersect for the village, creating a labyrinthic and quite evocative path that develops vertically. The center of the village is around Piazza Flavio Gioia with the church dedicated to St. Mary of Assumption, on which stands the majolica dome. In the latter, among other things, you can also admire mosaic sculptures and fairly colorful, contemporary with a great visual impact, by the artist Mimmo Paladino.
Positano is very famous for fashion. For this reason, along the maze of narrow streets it is very easy to come across many boutiques and tapestries that sell the original creations of the Moda Mare Positano line. We are talking about dresses, kaftans, coveralls, ornaments decorated with stones, with typical corals, turquoise and pearls. Their colors and their fabrics enliven the whole village.
At this point, we can also suggest you to take a stroll along Via Fornillo, the narrow, scenic little road that runs along the coast, and leads to a small bay where swimmers can indulge in a lonely dive. After spending a day in the sun, you can also dine with a typical and tasty fruit granite in one of the many bars in the place with a terrace. In the evening it is almost obligatory to conclude your unforgettable day with a sea-view dinner, based on fresh fish, preferably enjoying the famous crazy waterbuddies, which represent one of the many typical local dishes.
Amalfi is one of the four Maritime Republics ,It is is the main town of this coast road , it is a lovely town overlooking the Gulf of Naples. Along with Positano, they are known all over the world as real pearls of beauty. An ancient legend tells it was founded by Hercules, Jupiter’s son, for the love of the woman who had kidnapped his heart and had blue eyes like the sea she watched. The maiden was called Amalfi, but her life was short and Hercules buried her in a place where the sea would roll her into her hug forever.
