Positano is GORGEOUS.....but be prepared to walk!!!! It’s worth every step to experience this breathtaking beauty. Highly suggest Airbnb for families. We love cooking together in our charming Italian kitchen and eat on the patio over looking the water. It’s been perfect and we will be back soon - renting a private yacht is a must!
