Passa alla versione italiana  

Positano faces an emerald sea and is rounded by mounts Comunque and Sant'Angelo dei Tre Pizzi from which you can see a beautiful panorama. The town is sunk in the green of citrus plantations, and faces a little pebbly beach with coloured fisherman boats.
The beauty of Positano is in the suggestive atmosphere of panoramas (with 10 beaches such as Marina Grande, Ciumicello, La Porta, Arienzo and Fornillo) and in the architecture of the buildings which create a fusion between history and legend.
Viale Pasitea, the only street of the town, runs among houses with coloured little door until the sea. Here you can find many ceramics shops, boutiques, typical restaurant or coffee shops. At the end of the street there is a little square called Piazza Flavio Gioia with the Assunta Church. During summer, many festivals take place: the festival of San Pietro on June 29th, the Montepertuso festival on July 2nd, and the festival of Positano on August 15th.
There are also cultural festivals (such as the international award of modern dance, in memory of the famous dancer Leonide Massine) that make nights in Positano very pleasant.
