3. Church of Santa Maria Assunta

The Church of Santa Maria Assunta is one of the most well-known landmarks in Positano acclaimed for its colorful majolica tiled dome and fashion design. The church was built in the 12th century A.C. with parts from a Roman Villa that was in Positano in the 1st Century A.C. You can take a guided tour of the medieval crypts and detailed interior all of which offer great photo opportunities.

4. Spiaggia Grande

Spiaggia Grande is the main beach of Positano and the center of many activities of the village. The beach offers views of town and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta as well as free bathrooms, changing rooms, and showers right next to the beach. The water is beautiful and refreshing but be sure to bring water shoes because you have to walk across rocks to reach the water. There are also jellyfish in the water but the attendants at the beach kiosks have jellyfish sting spray that will take the pain away from any potential stings.

5. The Path of Gods

The Path of Gods (also known as The Sentiero degli Dei) is a three hour hike that links the tiny

hilltop town of Agerola with Nocelle. The footpath has spectacular scenery and the hike is of easy difficulty but it is not suitable for those who suffer from vertigo or those with bad knees due to the 1700 steps down into Positano. Those who have hiked The Path of Gods say it was the best walk of their lives and they recommend wearing sunscreen, flat shoes, as well as bringing water and some light snacks.
