Dramatic, deluxe, welcome to Positano's  Amalfi Coast. With vertiginous houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta.

Positano the cliffside village on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast. With its pebble beachfront and steep, narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. Its Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta features a majolica-tiled dome and a 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary. The Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail links Positano to other coastal towns. No less photo-worthy are its steep streets and steps, flanked by wisteria-draped hotels, smart restaurants and fashionable retailers.
