POSITANO

A small corner of paradise kissed by the gods.

The sea, leisurely strolls, shopping and nightlife: all the ingredients which, from the legendary 60s to today have made Positano a desirable location for vacationers from around the world.
Positano is perhaps the most famous town of The Amalfi Coast, whose charm never fails to astonish visitors.

It is a town nestled in the rock, built along a vertical axis, with small white and coloured houses which cascade, almost like a waterfall down the mountainside. These are intersected by narrow streets and stairways which invite visitors to stroll around leisurely and to relax. Strolling around Positano, constantly escorted by the scent of lemons which emanates from the gardens, together with the voices and different languages of the tourists who wander around the shops and boutiques, buying lightly coloured dresses or a nice pair of leather sandals made to measure, on request, by a local craftsman.

Looking upwards, your eyes always meet the colours of the beautifully tiled dome of ’Santa Maria Assunta’, which is visible from every corner of the town.
Not to mention the beaches, ’Marina Grande’, ’Fornillo’ and ’Laurito’. Lose yourself in the sight of the blue sea and the bright orb in the sky which merge on the horizon. A timeless and almost dangerous beauty, if it is true, that here, the mermaids from the islands of Galli bewitched sailors with their songs, making navigation difficult. However, the lonely and rocky islands were not entirely uninhabited. Another deity stayed there, a god of dance, the great Rudolf Nureyev, rigorous on the stage and transgressive in his private life, the first real star of ballet. On the island of ’Gallo Lungo’ he bought a beautiful villa which belonged to another Russian dancer and choreographer, Leonide Massine, who commissioned restoration works carried out by Le Corbusier in 1937. The ancient gods have clearly left a deep mark on the imagination of this place, to be entitled to the famous ’Walk of the Gods’, which promises a vision of enchanting glimpses of the coast, but only to those who have the courage to face the 1,700 steps necessary to reach the hamlet of Nocelle, from where the route begins.
