Positano, like the legendary Sirens of Li Galli, never fails to seduce.
Seen from the sea, Positano is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of colors; the green of the Monti Lattari, the white, pink and yellow of the Mediterranean houses, the silvery grey of its pebble beaches and the blue of the sea.
The Ancient Romans built a number of sumptuous villas on the coast of Positano, the ruins of which can be seen in the vicinity of the Church dell'Assunta.It is believed that the town, the original nucleus of which developed around a Benedictine abbey, was founded in the 9th century.
The town grew considerably following the arrival of inhabitants from Paestum, fleeing Saracen incursions.After it was pillaged by Pisa in 1268, Positano increased its defenses, becoming similar to its powerful neighbor, Amalfi: with steep narrow roads, massive fortified walls, and a series of all-important watch towers.The majolica tiled dome of the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta can be seen from every corner of the town. A Byzantine inspired Icon of a black Madonna, dating back to the 18th century, is conserved inside the church.The name Positano, is linked to a legend.
In ancient times, a Turkish boat became beached just off the shores of what has since come to be known as Positano.Aboard the ship there was a painting of the Virgin Mary.The captain heard the painting whisper "posa, posa" ('set me down, set me down') and, obediently, threw the image into the sea. Miraculously, the ship floated.The locals built a Church on the spot where the painting washed ashore, interpreting the episode as a sign that the Virgin had chosen their town as resting place.The fortunes of Positano, like its roads, have continually risen and fallen: in 1343 the town was destroyed by a terrible tsunami and in the 15th century it was the victim of continual attacks by Ottoman pirates.In the 18th century, Positano enjoyed a period of prosperity as a major port and trading hub. Following the unification of Italy and the opening of a number of new commercial routes, the town's importance began to decline, so much so that, in just a few decades, it was reduced to little more than a humble fishing village, many of the inhabitants of which decided to emigrate to the United States.
A Museum Visit to Explore the History of Positano
Discover the ancient history of Positano by visiting the local Museo Archeologico Romano, recently inaugurated on the site where an ancient Roman villa once stood beneath the oratory of the Church of the SS. Maria Assunta in Piazza Flavio Gioia, 7.

From 11 April to 31 October, the museum is open daily from 9AM to 8:30PM (and from 10AM to 4PM from 1 November to 10 April). You can also take a 30-minute guided tour for groups of up to 10. Tickets cost EUR15/person and only payment by credit or debit card is accepted.
Radical chic retreat
With the construction of the SS163 road, a much needed alternative to the mountain paths which had, until then, formed the only link between the Amalfi Coast and the rest of Italy, Positano once more began to flourish.The new road united the town with Sorrento and Naples and allowed the first tourists to reach Positano.These were no ordinary tourists, but rather an elite group of travelers, comprised of intellectuals, artists, and celebrities who, from the early 20th century onwards, elected Positano as their preferred holiday resort.Escher, Steinbeck, Picasso, Klee, Zeffirelli and Liz Taylor: the list of artists who have fallen helplessly in love with the beauty of Positano's land and seascapes is endless."Willing prisoners of a legendary landscape" as they used to define themselves...

Money Italy uses the euro currency:To convert prices in euros to dollars,add about 10 percent.The standard way for travelers to get euros is to withdraw money from ATMs ( which locals call a bancomat) using a debit or credit card,ideally with a Visa or MasterCard log.Before departing,call your bank or credit-card company:Confirm that your cards(s) will work overseas,ask about international transaction fees,and alert themthat you'll be making withdrawals in Europe.Also ask for the Pin number for your credit card in case it'll help you use Europe's chip-and PIN payament machines.
Dealing with CHIP AND PIN Much of Europe ( including Italy) is adopting a chip -and Pin system for credit cards,and some merchants rely on it exclusively.European chip-and -Pin cards are embedded with an electronic chip,in addition to the magnetic stripe used on your American -style cards.This means that your credit(and debit)card might no work at payment machines,such at those at train and subway stations,toll roads,parking garages,luggage lockers and gas pumps.Major US banks are chip-and-signature cards,for which your signature (not your PIN) verifies your identity.In Europe,these cards should work for live transactions and at most payment machines,but probabily won't work for offline transactions such as at unattended gas pumps.If a payment machine won't take your card,look for a machine that takes cash or see if there's a cashier nearby who can manually process your transaction.Often the easiest solution is to pay for your purchases with cash you've withdrawn from an ATM using your debit card(Europe's ATMs still accept magnetic -stripe cards).
Dynamic Currency Conversion If merchants or hoteliers offer to convert your purchase price into dollars ( called dynamic currency conversion,or DCC),refuse this service.You'll pay more in fees for the expensive convenience of seeing your charge in dollars.
If an ATM offers to lock in or guarantee your conversion rate,choose proceded without conversion.Other prompts might state,You can be charged in dollars:Press YES for dollars,NO for Euros.Always choose the local currency.
Staying Connected To call Italy from the US or Canada:Dial 011-39 followed by the local number.( The 011 is your international access code and 39 is our Italy's country code.)To call Italy from a European country Dial 00 -39 followed by the local number.( The 00 is Europe's international access code.)
To call within Italy Just dial the local number.To call from Italy to another country dial 00 followedby the country code(for example,1 for the US or Canada),then the area code an number.If you're calling European contries whose phone numbers begin with 0 you'll usually omit that 0when you dial.
Tips Traveling with a mobile phone-whether an American one that works in Italy,or an European one you buy when you arrive-is handy,but can be pricey.Consider getting an international plan;most providers offer a global calling plan that cuts the per -minute cost of phone calls and texts,and a flat-fee data plan
Use Wi-Fi Most hotels,holiday houses and many cafe offer free Wi-Fi,and you'll likely also find it at tourist information offices,major museums,and public-transit hubs.With Wi-Fi you can use your smartphone to make free or inexpensive domestind international calls by taking advantage of a calling app such as Skipe,FaceTime,or Google +Hangouts.When you can't find Wwi-Fi,you can use your cellular network to connect yto the Internet, text,or make voice calls.When you're done,avoid further charges by manually switching off data roaming or cellular data.
It's possible to stay connected without a mobile phone.To make cheap international calls from any phone (even your hotel-room phone),you can buy an international phone card in Italy.These work with a scratch -to -reveral PIN code,allow you to call home to the US for pennies a minute,and also work for domestic calls.Calling from your hotel-room phone without using an international phone card is usually expensive.
