Walking to Santa Margharita from Positano

by Mimi21

Our cruise ship docks in Positano. We are thinking of walking to Santa Margharita. Is the walk on the road or on the beach better. Is it approximately 5 mi, and any other advice for a day trip.

probably less than 5 miles, maybe two or three, but on a narrow winding road with no shoulders and no real room to walk. Dangerous. Better you should take the bus. there are hiking trails over to san fruttoso which might be more appealing if you wish to walk.

I think it should be from S.M.L to Portofino not Positano which is near Sorrento, Capri in the south of Italy. Portofino is within 30 minutes from S.M.L.

Sorry, I meant Portofino. Someone wrote that you can walk along the shore all the way. Is that possible? Since we will be arriving early, we figured if we walk it will be good exercise and we will get there just about when the stores, etc open. Is it really so dangerous?

you cannot walk along the shore all the way. at multiple levels the hills go right into the water.

"The Place We Always Come Back To"

We first visited SML in the mid-1980's. Greeted with Guten Morgen, given menus written in German, there certainly were not a lot of Americans visiting here. Well, things have changed a lot in 20+ years. There is a large Best Western right on the main street and now english menus come, in one restaurant, with either the British or American flag depending on the appraisal by the owners. Nevertheless, it is the village we always come back to for its laid-back atmosphere, reasonable prices at all star levels, great food, beautiful scenery. With excellent auto access to Portofino, Rapallo, Camogli, and tiny Zoagli, the location is perfect. Meals are always well-prepared, fresh, and at reasonable prices (except the hotels), and the locals remain as friendly as the first time we rolled in driving out little rented Fiat Ritmo. Photos here are of the beach and town from the same vantage point day and evening.

Santa Margherita Ligure

"Santa Margherita Ligure"

When I booked my holiday to Italy, I had no idea where this town was or what it was all about. It was recommended to me, and one of the best recommendations I have had. This popular seaside resort with palm trees and cafes is situated on the Gulf of Tigullio. The resort contains many old buildings including the Villa Durazzo, a 16th-century building with an elegant garden and a large park featuring exotic plants, statues, and fountains.
It is not that far from Genoa and approx 5 kilometres from Portofino.
