Walk down to the beach on Marina Grande and see the beautiful town from below. 

Visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and then walk around the town.  

Take a boat ride to the Blue Grotto illuminated by the blue from the sea and sun. Green Grotto is also nice!

Rent a scooter and drive around town.

Take a boat to La Fontelina Beachclub - this chic beach club is a celeb favorite.

Buy some handmade sandals! There are so many cute little shops that custom make sandals just for you.

Places to eat & drink in Positano, Italy

Two glasses of wine, candle and bowl of olives on table in Positano

Conca Del Sogno: You have a take a water taxi  to get to this restaurant, but it's worth it. If you are doing a day tour on a boat, stop here to eat - or go for dinner!

Da Adolfo: Great lunch spot. You also need a water taxi to get here. They are only open for lunch and it's super packed at around noon. So if you don't have reservations, go a little later around 2-3pm.

La Tagliata: Restaurant at a farmhouse. It’s around $40 per person and they bring you out whatever they have. So no picking from a menu, but some of the best food on the trip!

Da Vincenzo: Really great dinner. Amazing zucchini pasta and lemon shrimp. 

Franco's: You MUST go here for drinks. Go before dinner. Amazing view and really good cocktails. 

Buca di Bacco: Best gelato in Positano. If you are walking up from the beach, you can't miss it - it's on the left side going up.

Covo Dei Saraceni: Best pizza in Positano.

Chez Black: Another popular restaurant. The owner's son is an actor so it's really well known. It's right on the beach.
