Sunday Special – Positano, Italy (on the Almalfi Coast)

As the daylight hours here in Vancouver have been reduced due to the sad end of Daylight Savings Time I imagine places that are reknown for their sunkissed beaches. Recently my Instagram feed has seen a number of posts of this small sea-side Italian town. Set upon a hill that is awash with buildings and homes painted in bright hues it was once a busy port city back in the 1700s and 1800s. Now this town is recognized as one of the most picturesque in all of the Almalfi Coast. Author John Steinbeck wrote a magazine article about its charms back in the 1950s. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones were holidaying in Positano when they wrote “Midnight Rambler”. Plenty of beaches, food, and relaxation seem to be what this popular locale is known for.
