Positano is a lovely and romantic place situated in the Amalfi Coast, south of Italy. Many famous actors and actresses have taken their holidays here. This place is well-known venue for weddings too! If you are planning a few days trip or even a day trip there, here are my 10 things to do in Positano.
1. Coffee in Positano
I headed first for a cup of coffee and pizza at this cute pretty cafe called Collina Positano Bakery. You won’t missed it as it is the first eatery I saw after walking down the slope from the bus stand. I could have stayed here for another 20 minutes or so because it was so nice and cosy. They also have really clean washroom. The thing in Italy is, there is limited free public washroom and it costs 1 Euro for each visit. So what I do is, I always go to the ones inside a cafe.
