Once you've got out of the coach, at the roadside you'll get your first impression of charming Positano. The old center is deep down by the beach, while in a natural amphitheatre of soaring rock, chic hotels and villas recede upward, the one gallantly leaning on top of the other.
Descending to the labyrinthine heart of the old town, the street on the one side is lined with little bars and exclusive shops, expensive hotels with shaded car parks, a luxury here, and liveried doormen to show the way.
And of course there are trees, dark chestnuts, for shade and bougainvilles for joy. And on the other side, on the slope, there are gardens with flowers and fruits, and stone steps and vine-roofed alleys which lead to the sea.
