"In a 1953 @harpersbazaarus essay, John Steinbeck drew back the curtain on Positano, most likely changing the course of history for the most picturesque town on Italy's #AmalfiCoast. This romanticized 30-mile stretch on the southern edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula impresses, with cliffs towering above pebbled coves and villages hugging improbably steep slopes. But famed, and now oppressively overcrowded, Positano isn't the only city to see along the Amalfi Coast. @nytimestravel recommends seeking out less-heralded towns — from neighboring Praiano, in the west, to the central coast's twin beach towns of Maiori and Minori — to discover the region's untrammeled charm and enduring beauty. @sw_photo captured this scene from @lesirenuse while on assignment in #Positano, Italy."
