The real beauty of Positano is its many views: of the sea from the terraces, of the houses from the sea, of the streets from below, of the cupola from above. There are so many steps in Positano you are never going to be gazing at the same vista. For the most spectacular view of them all however, you will have to climb two thousands steps to Nocelle.
Nocelle is a small village, 400 meters above Positano, old and beautiful, with lemon trees spilling over the orchard’s walls and basil plants growing on the side of the pavement. If you make it all the way you have earned yourself a meal at the Ristorante Santa Croce. And if you are still up for an 8km walk, you can take the Sentiero degli Dei all the way to Agerola.
