Travel Tips for Positano

The International Bar corner

by iandsmith

There's a corner you'll get to know at Positano. Locals call it the "International Bar" for there is an establishment of that name there.
It happens to be adjacent to the main bus stop for Positano and every morning traffic officials turn up for the daily tourist coach run, i.e. when the buses arrive for the trip to Amalfi.
It's quite a circus. You can easily tell the old timers, they negotiate the tight bend without stopping. Some newcomers have to back and fill and you can see they are unnerved by the insanity of the whole thing. It's amazing to watch as minute after minute more coaches ply by on this road fit for one lane traffic yet harbouring two.
No-one who comes here ever forgets the bus trip to Amalfi, it's the stuff of legend. At certain points the drivers fold back their rear vision mirrors as there is so little room to pass.

Sailing Past Positano

by sandysmith

As we sailed past Positano and the coastline back to Amalfi we tried to pick out the cliff where we had walked - but they all looked so much the same, but we could see the white houses and church tower of Montepertuso towards the top of the cliffs where we started to make our descent - WOW it was a long way down.

For a spectacular view of Positano climb Via Raffaele Bosco from either Vico Equense or Seiano. Take Via Gradoni to S. Maria del Castello. Park your car on the side of the road (by the fence near the church). Walk down the path to the cliffs. Warning! This is not for the faint of heart (there are no railings). Email me if you need more directions.

The Bus to Positano: An adventure in itself!

by wilocrek

Taking the Sita bus to Positano is not only a cheap, fast way to travel but the trip its self is a adventure. The road to Positano is narrow and curves tightly to the edge of the mountain. If you suffer from motion sickness bring some medicine for this trip! The bus drivers are extremely skilled and you will marvel at their ability to navigate this roads that look like they were made for one way traffic in mind. On the way to Positano I recommend sitting on the right side of the bus as you will be treated to outstanding views of the coast and on some curves you will be looking straight down into the ocean. Have your camera ready!

Good eats to take away

by ct-bound about Delikatessen

Just up the pathway from the main Beach in Positano, there is a 'grocery store' up a set of stairs, where you can buy canned goods, cereal and fruit etc.

What most tourists didn't seem to know was that if you went to the back of the store at the deli counter, you could get fresh sandwiches made to go. They will take a whole loaf of fresh crusty bread and stuff it with whatever meat (or whatever) you want, layer it with cheese, then top it with anything from their selection of pickled mushrooms, grilled eggplant, stuffed peppers, olives (with pits, beware!), or whatever you want. My favourite was the Proscuitto ham (local specialty) with mozzarella (they cut it almost 1/2 inch thick), olives (all types) and sundried tomatoes. Mmmm.
