Positano Vacation Packages & Tours

Gaze out at Positano from the sea and you might think you’ve stepped into a painting. It’s an incredible vertical panorama of color, with the brilliant blue of the sea, the silvery pebble beaches, the yellow, pink, and white homes, and the green of the Monti Lattari. The town sits to the west of the natural terrace on the Tyrrhenian Sea with its winding alleyways and lanes best enjoyed at a leisurely pace to soak up the simple pleasures in life. They’re lined with many upscale boutiques, shops selling custom-made leather sandals, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants with the historic square hosts a centuries-old church with artifacts and plenty of interesting stories. There are few places that can rival its beauty – it seems as if it was perfectly designed for romance, with a skyline that still looks like it did a century ago, thanks to the strict building codes that ban modern construction.

Best Time to Visit Positano

The best time to visit Positano is May, followed by April and mid-September through early October. May is optimal with idyllic weather with temperatures around the mid-70s. While there will be plenty of tourists here, the big summer crowds have yet to arrive. April is your next best bet as it’s similar, just slightly cooler with a little higher chance of some rain. In the summer, it’s jam-packed with visitors and the roadways are very congested too. The days are hot and often humid, making it feel even hotter, with most enjoyed at the beach. This is the most expensive time to visit and you’ll need to make reservations well in advance, but if you like a party and a lively atmosphere, you’re likely to enjoy it. The crowds thin and the temperatures dip in mid-September, yet the sea will still be warm enough for swimming through at least early October.
