Positano- known as the pearl of the Amalfi Coast, is a small yet very famous tourist town. Positano can rightfully be called one of the
most picturesque towns on the Campania coast.  The main part of the town is set on a mountain leading down to the sea. It was a
prosperous port in the 16th and 17th centuries and started attracting tourists during the 1950's.  It has become a very popular tourist
attraction and has been featured in films such as
Only You and Underneath the Tuscan Sun. The town is embroidered by the narrow
and often winding lanes and steps which cross it and is dominated by the splendid dome covered in polychrome majolica of the church
of San. Maria Assunta. You can find many small streets with hundreds of boutiques. The famous American author John Steinback talks
about Positano in his essay stating "it is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you
have gone."
Amalfi- set between the mountains and the sea, the larges town on the coast was formerly one of the Mediterranean's sea powers.  
It was the capital of The Maritime Republic of Amalfi, and was a very important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and
around 1200.
The famous duomo dominates the main square with large flights of stairs where you will find many foreigners that are getting
married.  Along this pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, clothing, swim
wear, gifts, groceries and ceramics
