Lemon Ice aka Granita in Positano
The best things in life aren't usually free, but they don't have to be expensive. A favorite treat of mine throughout Italy is the granita. I love lemon granita. There isn't a better place to get lemon granita than the Amalfi Coast. In Positano, every day, I would go to the little lemon granita cart just up the walkway and stairs from the beach, near the cab stand, the cool art store, and the bus stop that takes you to the top of Positano. You can't miss it. It is set up on your right as you walk up the hill. Directly across from it is an art store that has the coolest picture of the beach from the 80's I've ever seen ( it's of a girl with an amazing tan line :) ). The lemon Ice is only Euro 1,50 and tastes so good once it hits your lips that you'll keep coming back for more. So much so that you may even spoil your dinner. Don't be concerned that the portion is too small...it isn't. In fact it is just right. Enjoy it and go back as often as you can.
