Fora’s Take

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s most precious crown jewels, offering something for everyone. Beyond its breathtaking vistas and stunning beaches, visitors can choose from a range of activities including hiking, boating, spa & wellness and even good ol’ beach bumming! Every nook and cranny on this rocky Napolitan coast is as if an ode to the Odyssey (the Li Galli islands in front of Positano actually played a key role as the sirens’ home in Homer’s epic). Today, the coast welcomes all mortals, with the Italian sunshine turning them into a muse!

Things to do in Positano, Italy

Hike the Path of the Gods (Il Sentiero degli Dei). It is a proper workout with surreal views that make it all worth it. From here, you can see the beauty of the Tyrrhenian Sea and scale just a bit closer to the heavens in what is already paradise on Earth.


The Amalfi Coast beaches are some of the most coveted in the world, famous for gravel instead of sand and azure waters. Check out the Spiaggia Grande (perhaps the most famous beach on Instagram), a place where you can tour the beaches dotted on the coast. Rent a beach lounger for the day and enjoy a seaside lunch! And if you’re ready for more, hop on a boat to see the coast from the water, the way it's meant to be seen by the sailors passing by its shores.


Shopping on Via Camerelle is a luxury shopping experience unlike any other featuring local artisanal and high-end products you’re sure to want to take home with you!
