How to Spend 1 Day in Positano

How to Spend 1 Day in Positano

Whether you’re making your way along the Amalfi Coast or visiting on a day trip from nearby Naples, the colorful seaside town of Positano promises to enchant you. One day is just enough time to explore the town, sample local cuisine, and admire the coastal views. Here’s how to make the most of one day in Positano.

Morning: Strolling and Shopping

Positano’s cobbled streets lend themselves well to walking tours, which help you navigate the maze of lanes and provide tailored tips on where to eat, drink. Most tours follow the main street of Viale Pasitea as it winds up the hillside and visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta

After your tour, spend an hour browsing boutiques, art galleries, and cafés before heading down to the seaside, where the Spiaggia Grande beach is the ideal spot to cool off with a swim; this is also a great spot to photograph the town from below.

Afternoon: A Taste of Positano

The Amalfi Coast and the neighboring Sorrento Peninsula are both renowned for their cuisine, so it’s worth devoting an afternoon to regional produce. Whether you join a food tasting tour, take a cooking class, or enjoy wine tasting at a local winery, food lovers will find plenty to get excited about in Positano. Must-try dishes include fresh seafood, ndunderi (a local variety of gnocchi), and Treccia mozzarella, which is best accompanied by a glass of Tramonti wine and followed by delizia al limone, a dessert made with lemons from Sorrento. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle of limoncello (lemon liqueur) as a souvenir.

Night: Sunset Cruise

You can’t visit Positano without admiring the Amalfi Coast from afar; for time-pressed travelers, a boat cruise is the best way to get unobstructed views of the UNESCO-listed landscapes. Views of Positano, Amalfi, and the Li Galli islands are most magical during sunset, when numerous evening cruises set sail from Positano Port. Opt for a romantic Champagne cruise on a private boat or join a lively catamaran excursion.

Back in Positano, there’s still time for a cocktail at one of the beachside bars, or you could head to Music On The Rocks, a nightclub that’s carved into the rocks on the seafront.

Get to know Positano like a local as you explore the city’s neighborhoods on an evening walking tour with your guide Zia Lucy. Hear stories passed down through generations, and see the city as if you lived there, stopping at local shops and tasting a local specialty. Positano is very steep and full of steps, so participants need to be in relatively good knee health to manage, and although the tour is family friendly, it may be a challenge for young children.
