5 hours in Positano on the Almafi Coast, Italy

Hello and welcome back to my blog, today’s post is all about Positano which is on the Amalfi coast, Italy. The most beautiful place on Earth.

Naples to Positano

We travelled from Naples with a company called Tramvia. Which was only 28 euros each both ways. This was a pretty good deal as you cannot catch public transport very easily from Naples to Positano. 

On the way to there we had a lovely air conditioned bus and even a tour guide which gave us some information about Naples and the Amalfi Coast. However, when we did reach Positano we were on our own but, this was told to us when we booked our tickets. 

how long do you need?

We had a good 5 hours to explore which I would say is more than enough time.

What to do

We spent most of our time on the beach, relaxing, swimming, sunbathing and taking in the breath taking view.

We also explored the town, ate some gelato and visited the Church which contains the Black Madonna.

We then got picked up at the top of of the Italian town with Tramvia and made our way to Amalfi where the rest of our group was. You could either do a tour of just Positano or Positano and Amalfi.

I’m glad we had only done Positano as I thought it was much more beautiful. Of what we saw of Amalfi from the bus it didn’t appear to have a beach but a harbour instead.
