“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you are gone.”
Positano was featured in the film “Under The Tuscan Sun” and Mick Jagger crafted “Midnight Rambler” in one of its many cafes. The town itself, perched on a cliff along the legendary Amalfi Coast, is pedestrian-only. The walk down to the Marina Grande winds you through a labyrinth of narrow alleyways and quaint bazaars selling lace, linen, ceramics, jewelry, olive oil, art, limoncello and all things Italian.
High above the hustle and bustle, accessible by car, sits the five-star Le Sirenuse hotel. The property is home to La Sponda, Positano’s finest restaurant, with a recent Michelin star to prove it. The cuisine is based on local, fresh ingredients and inspired by Mediterranean tradition. Sweeping views of the sea take your breath away as city lights twinkle below. Mandolin music floats in the background. The atmosphere is so charming; the service so perfect, the menu so brilliant and the view so magnificent, the experience can only be described as impossibly romantic.
