The vertical town of Positano strikes a stunning image against the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Peach and pink homes decorate the terraced hills and rise out of the emerald forests. Cobblestone streets reach the quiet beach below where the water laps at the pebbles beneath the shade of colorful parasols. Your private transfer will meet you at Naples International Airport upon your arrival and escort you to the most westerly town of the Amalfi Coast. Travel along the coastline of the Bay of Naples and see the dramatic figure of Mount Vesuvius rising above the water.
Drive along the meandering narrow streets in the hills that lead to the edge of the famous Amalfi Coast, a stretch of Italy’s shoreline that is nearly 25 miles long. In the town of Positano, you will find the welcoming aroma of zesty lemons that emanate from the vibrant trees. The sunlight glints off the majolica dome of the 10th-century Church of Santa Maria Assunta. The cupola stands out above the cream-colored exterior with marvelous detail in yellow, green, and blue tiles visible from the Marina Grande Beach.
Settle into your comfortable accommodations with a view of the coastline that touches the surrounding cliffs. At dinner, you will find an official culinary welcome to Positano and the Amalfi Coast in the form of a tasting menu that offers the splendid traditional dishes of the Campania Region, beginning with a simple, yet extraordinary Caprese Salad. The plate has bright sun-ripened tomatoes, fragrant basil, and creamy mozzarella cheese, all drizzled with rich olive oil. The first bite of the dish enchants you with its fresh ingredients to combine the perfect embodiment of region.
