“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are
there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. Its houses climb
a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it. I believe
that whereas most house foundations are vertical, in Positano they are
horizontal. The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water
laps gently on a beach of small pebbles. There is only one narrow street
and it does not come down to the water. Everything else is stairs, some of
them as steep as ladders. You do not walk to visit a friend, you either
climb or slide.” John Steinbeck

We spent about two hours eating lunch and exploring the narrow, café-lined streets of Italy’s cliffside town Positano. It’s easy to spend hours wandering the cobblestone streets, following the scent of fresh pastries, and popping in and out of local artisanal boutiques. We had lunch at Cafe Positano overlooking the sea. The views were breathtaking. Our driver then delivered us to our hotel in Naples. Interesting fact – our driver also drives for Valentino. Another Perfect Day!
