The pastel cliffside of Positano along the Amalfi coastline is known as one of the most beautiful in the world. Thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to this Italian paradise, seduced by its legendary villas, classic Italian cuisine, and the world-renowned friendliness of its locals. Its popularity as an Italian hotspot led me to question if one location could actually live up to such high expectation.
Looking out the car window and onto the coastline of Sorrento only got more beautiful as I pulled into the narrow, winding streets of Positano. The lemon trees glowed in the golden hour of sunlight, Italian jazz was echoing from parallel streets, and wine glasses sparkled throughout the well-dressed crowd. Not a bad idea for a solo trip. The scenery of Positano presented a beauty second only to the love of community echoed in the worldview of the ones who call it home.
