Photo of the Day – Positano Italy

There are few stretches of coastline more spectacular than the Amalfi Coast and the striking village of Positano Italy is perhaps the region’s shining star. Once a relatively poor fishing village, Positano emerged on the tourism scene after John Steinbeck published an essay about it in Harper’s Bazaar in 1953. Steps replace roads in this vertical town with pastel-colored houses cascading delicately from the hilltops to the Mediterranean. Positano’s most recognizable landmark is the church of Santa Maria Assunta which features a majolica-tiled dome that can be seen from every corner of the town. Whether you’re soaking in the gravity-defying architecture from a hillside cafe or gazing out at the sea from a beach chair on Spiaggia Grande, Positano Italy is a place that will steal your heart. Perhaps Steinbeck said it best when he wrote, “It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.
