The first evidence of a settlement in Positano dates back to Prehistory, more precisely to the Upper Paleolithic in which the “Grotto La Porta” was frequented by peoples of gatherers and hunters.
Despite the tradition linked to the myth of the Sirens, there is no news regarding a Greek presence on the coast of Positano.
The first archaeological evidence dates back to the 1st century. BC, when luxurious Roman villas were built on the coast of the Sorrento Peninsula. In Positano, one occupied the bay and the other extended on the island of the Long Rooster, “a typical example of how even more hidden spaces of a wild coast were used in the Claudian age without even respecting the rocks that, according to legend , would have served as the home of the sirens”.
Positano became a wealthy market port from the 15th to 17th century and has only continued to grow in popularity over time. Back then they traded food such as fish and other resources.
Positano was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, and prospered during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, the town had fallen on hard times. More than half the population emigrated, mostly to America.
Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the twentieth century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s, especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in Harper’s Bazaar in May, 1953: “Positano bites deep”, Steinbeck wrote. “It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”
The virtual tour starts from the top of the town, then into the maze of narrow streets and tours around the main sightseeing of this very typically mediterranean town
