Positano, Italy

Getting Lost (In the Best Way) In Positano

Panoramic coastline views. Many—maybe too many—aperol spritzes. Cliff diving. “Spring on the Amalfi Coast is a bad idea,” said no one ever.

Summer '18 in Positano

Positano, a cliffside village a 90-minute drive from the bustling city of Naples, lives up to its reputation. It’s brimming with cinematic views, fantastic food, historic architecture, and Italian charm. Most intoxicating of all? The fragrant air which, we think, was a mix of fresh lemons and jasmine. Our hotel, Villa Franca, was nicknamed “a dream between sea and sky,” and sat at the highest point of the peninsula so the rooftop was as unreal as you might imagine.

Where to stay: Hotel Villa Franca, with a stunning rooftop.

The Tumbled Leather Mule was perfect for taking in the views, less perfect for scooter driving, but we made it work.

Day trip: Furore, which has a beautiful inlet beach and 101’ tall bridge that is used for cliff diving competitions every July.
