My daily snack in Positano, of course still is Gelato ice cream and fruits at convenience stores. The gelato in Positano is pretty good, although not really excellent. You can easily buy in shops, cafes near the beach.

About meals in the day, the most economical way is still buying at convenience stores, they sell rice, pastas or breads. If you want to eat well, there are many restaurants for you to choose. Prices at restaurants in Positano, of course will be quite expensive because it is a famous tourist destination that rich people visit.

During the 3 days and 2 nights in Positano I often eat at Mediterraneo Restaurant (Address: Viale Pasitea, 236, 84017 Positano SA, Italy / Hours: 12–10:30PM / Phone: +39 089 811651), right next to my room. The restaurant with the main blue tone, specializing in seafood is quite delicious. Especially, all waiters are male, all are elegant Italian male who know how to talk and satisfy customers. The Next2 restaurant (Address: Address: Viale Pasitea, 242, 84017 Positano SA, Italy / Hours: 6:30–11PM / Phone: +39 089 812 3516), next door is also recommended but always out of table if not reserved.

Positano travel guide: Where to go, what to do in Positano?

Walking around the small streets of the center

shopping-positano-amalfi-coast-italy-positano tourist guide,positano travel blog,positano travel guide,positano blog,positano visitor guide

The central area is not too big but it is enough for me to spend the whole day wandering to explore. The main road with the surrounding houses has a characteristic white tone in Santorini style, overlooking the sea, so you can view the sea at anywhere. Stores, shops and eateries are all very stylish, there are sea view cafe shops located on the cliffs, you can stand by their balcony to pose for taking some nice ‘virtual living’ photos.

In the evening, Positano lights up so miraculously. You can choose for yourself a high seat, see panoramic of Positano sparkling. This scene reminded me of Oia village in Santorini, but Positano brought a completely different style.
