The beaches of Positano: Prefer the Fornillo, less touristy

Positano is a kind of maze. As a beach, we suggest you head to Fornillo. The big Beach boasts a wider expanse, but it is targeted by tourists. Fornillo, however, will allow you to live at most a day of rest, sunbathing and getting caught by the beautiful waters.

Families built them to receive divine protection. They also assured the inhabitants of Praiano that they were the owners of the place.

Praiano is a different place from the other best known. Contrary to them, he never succumbed to the fascination of tourism. It is a place that, yes, has many visitors, but does not offer those trendy places that attract a certain type of tourists. Let's say that Praiano is dedicated to those who love to walk, to be touched by the wind and admire the typical beauties of Campania.
