Best time for a Positano wedding
: March through October
About Positano, John Steinback said it perfectly:
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. Its houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it. I believe that whereas most house foundations are vertical, in Positano they are horizontal. The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water laps gently on a beach of small pebbles.”
A wedding in Positano will celebrate the sea, the sky and the sunshine!
