Boasting an amazing baroque design with mythological motifs, the fountain is one of the most photogenic spots in the city, and it is located near the principal shopping area. If you wish to check out some of the city’s most iconic structures, head over to the Sistine Chapel, which houses the famous fresco by Michelangelo.

With its crystal clear blue waters and views of the Lattari Mountains' peaks, it's impossible not to fall in love with Positano. Once you arrive, you'll see why this is the most iconic and well-known village on the Amalfi Coast, as its quintessential Mediterranean atmosphere gives Positano an irresistible charm.
The village is dotted with numerous quaint boutiques, lemon-themed ceramics stalls, and romantic restaurants promising a sample of the area’s renowned seafood, all contributing to the postcard feel of the town. However, the most popular attraction in this small village is the beach. Spend an idyllic day relaxing under an umbrella or swimming in the bluest of waters.
When the sun becomes too hot, retreat into town to do some shopping in one of the many boutique clothing shops and embrace "Moda di Positano," Positano style! Before you leave, make sure to sample some of Italy's famous gelato in one of Positano's gelaterias.
Although Positano is a little tricky to get to, it is worth every bit of effort. The closest airport is in Naples, around 48 kilometers away. However, several bus companies run buses from Rome to Positano, with stops in towns along the way.

On Via G Marconi in Positano, you'll find the small coach stop for SITA buses. The coach stop has very little signage and is on the side of the main road. There are some parking spaces and a small, stone-covered shelter with seating. SITA buses stop here a few times daily, coming from Amalfi and heading towards Sorrento. The coach stop is on a steep hill with views of the ocean, and you will need to continue up or down the hill to find small cafes and shops. However, most of Positano's hotels, shops, and restaurants are downhill toward the city centre and beach, where you can also find tourist information and alternative coach stops.
