Positano sightseeing

The sights and activities of Positano on the Amalfi Coast

Postcard-pretty as it is, Positano itself is kind of dull in the sightseeing department.

Once you've seen the baroque majolica-tiled dome atop the 13th-century church of Santa Maria Assunta (tel. +39-089-875-480) in the center of town, you've pretty much finished with the historical sights of Positano.

The real sightseeing here is wandering the twisting alleyways near the port, window shopping at the boutiques, and sipping aperitifs at the beachside bars while glancing around for celebrities.

Not that there is plenty more to do in and around Positano if you want to use it as a base for the coast:

How long does Positano take?

Planning your day:There's nothing to see in Positano other than its pretty ol' self, and nothing to do but hang out and just "be" in Positano, hoping to catch sight of a celebrity.

In other words, unless you're staying the night here, you needn't really get off the bus—though you could hop off, stroll around to snap a few photographs, and catch the next bus that comes along an hour or two later.
