Was I in Positano???

I just returned from Italy and one strange experience was when I returned to Positano. It wasn't the Positano I thought I had seen last trip. That trip, I had taken a 3-day bus tour from Rome to the Amalfi Coast, basing in Sorrento. One day the bus went up, up, up the road and stopped at a cafe at the top, where we could get off and eat or shop. I have a photo someone took of me sipping coffee and looking over an incredible view of the bay. When I asked the driver what this incredible place was, he said "Positano." This trip, my friend and I took the boat to Positano. I proceeded to climb up, up, up and got pretty high. Then I saw a staircase going higher. I saw a German man coming down and asked him if the top of Positano was there. He said No, Positano is down. Where I was pointing was something like Montepertuso. I asked where the centro of Positano was and he pointed down as well. I'm curious if anyone has visited Montepertuso and whether there is a cafe high at the top to stop at and view the bay far below? I gave up, being by that time sun-burned, winded and discouraged. So for me, Positano was rather a disappointment. I'm very glad we had booked 2 days in Ravello and I was able to savor the view that way. But remain curious about where the heck I was the first time?!

Sounds like you were in Montepertusso the first time. There are several cafes and restaurants with wonderful views overlooking Positano and the sea far below.

Hi Pam,

If it was a small town, you were in Montepertuso.

Darn. Guess I should have continued to the top this time. Was beginning to think I'd been hallucinating the last time (is that possible on Limoncello?). Well, now I have to go back. Thanks for helping, Grinisa and Ira.
