Photos To Make You Want To Visit Positano Italy – Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

If there’s really a heaven on earth, I’m thoroughly convinced that it’s the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Positano which graces the coastline of the Tyrrhenian Sea is the crowning jewel of the Amalfi region. The colorful homes drape the hillsides as if they’re part of the natural landscape, the brilliant blue hues of the Mediterranean sea sparkle under the bright sun, and the absurdity of the steep roads and staircases that snake their way through the village make for a seductively heady combination.

Let our photos of this lovely place make you want to visit Positano Italy for yourself.

Photos To Make You Want To Visit Positano Italy

As I explored the nooks and crannies of Positano, I gasped in delight over and over again. Turn a corner. Climb a hill. Walk by the sea. It wouldn’t be long before I was greeted with yet another vantage point that offered views so stunning and dramatic that I was rendered speechless, looking around with a wondrous and reverent gaze.

It was completely surreal. I’d never seen anything like Positano or had felt an achingly overwhelming beauty overpower my senses. I burst into tears several times throughout my entire trip in Italy, as it almost seemed “too perfect”.

It’s easy to understand why this place beckons you to return or perhaps never leave. As Steinbeck wrote, “Positano bites deep … It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” 

And he’s right.

  1. Beautiful stuff, Cheryl – it’s almost like being there … but not quite. 😉 I’ve visited Cinque Terre a few years back, and that experience combined with your photos/description of Positano are making me consider adding a few days in Italy.

  2. @Henry – Thanks! You should …. If I had to choose between the two places, hands down the Amalfi Coast. Cinque Terre was nice but … just not the same.

  3. Beautiful views in these lovely images. Sounds like a wonderful destination!
    All the best from Santiago de Chile…

  4. Looks very nice! Why can’t I live on a nice sunny hillside like that, instead of the my current one, covered in snow?

  5. I was so sad when we had to cut Italy out of our Europe trip last year – I’ve never been to the Amalfi Coast and that was one of the places we were going to explore…looks amazing!

  6. @Don – living on a hill covered in snow sounds pretty nice too! Winter landscapes are so dreamy and romantic. 🙂

  7. @Andrea – As I looked at my photos I found myself longing to return. Sigh! Hope you get there sometime soon. 🙂

  8. Very pretty indeed! Strangely, I never had a big taste for Italy before, but it’s posts like these that really make me want to go. Magic Amalfi coast 🙂

  9. @Laurel and @Jarmo – Thanks so much! And Jarmo, definitely get there if you ever have the chance.

  10. Thanks Cheryl
    Have been there twice & planning on a Villa to go back & spend all the time there……..great photos & makes me want to start packing as I write.

  11. I loved the Amalfi Coast and wish I could have spent longer there. Only got to spend a day in Positano but it was lovely. Great pics, I want to go back there now!

  12. @Carol – that’s so cool! I love when you love a place so much that it beckons you back. =)

  13. @Dean – Glad you enjoyed Positano too. I have some more photos on Amalfi and Ravello coming up as well. =)

  14. Unbelievably enchanting and sublime from every vantage point!! I really need to get here soon!!!
