If you are fond of capturing moments in photographs, you are bound to find paradise in Positano. Positano is the most photogenic town that ever came into being with its elegant row of houses decked up in a row. They appear to be fading into the ocean if you look at them from a distance. The sea itself assumes a number of hues and colors thanks to the numerous angles with which the sun's rays are reflected. The comfortable hotels and elaborate boutiques lining the streets make the medley more vibrant.
Practically everything in Positano right from the gutters to the painted walls remind you of the vibrant life that thrives in the precincts. There are always some men and women sunbathing on the beaches, but they are also found to be enjoying a pizza. There is always a kid asking his mother for some more candy. But this is also the place where the trends in fashion assumed significance.
Positano welcomed the last century as a fishing-town. The business of fishing was organised on a large-scale. But in the present millennium, it has graduated to be a resort-town, where people come to enjoy their vacations. There are a large number of hotels and boutiques in the city.
All infrastructure in Positano finds itself on the slopes. The little land that is available is used for farming of fruits and vegetables. The volcanic soil in Positano is quite amenable to vegetation.
Trade and commerce with countries in the East thrived to the highest points in Positano despite there not being a harbor in Positano. Splendid and beautiful structures came up in Positano as traders hiked up their trade. Many of these structures are now falling.
