The UNESCO heritage site of the Amalfi Coast in Italy is one of the most picturesque regions of the world. The Harvard society describes this region as“The beauty of the Amalfi Coast can not be described in words. Steep cliffs plunge down into the bright blue sea and little towns wedge into narrow ravines. Picturesque villages and stunning panoramas provide an aesthetic pulse, the delicious food and throbbing nightlife provide for the region’s corporeal beat”.
Positano is a cross roads of culture, where you will see the architecture of the Saracens and the Greeks. The area forms the backdrop for part of Homer’s tales in the Odyssey (Ulysses tying himself to the mast of the boat to avoid the seductive pull of the female ‘Sirens’ who lured sailors onto the rocky reefs with their sweet refrains).
