Parking in Positano can be very challenging, and it is never easy and cheap. Positano has a very narrow geographical layout, so there are few parking areas, and public parking is often reserved for residents only. Therefore, many tourists ask themselves: “where to park in Positano?” Usually, the only option for Positano visitors is paying for a parking garage or staying in a hotel that provides parking places. Still, not many hotels and restaurants offer free parking for their guests, but you should get at least some discount.
The parking situation in Positano can be very stressful, so we recommend taking public transportation to get around, especially in the summer. Sita buses run daily between Positano and other towns on the coast. A ferry service also connects Positano to other beautiful towns on Amalfi Coast. Therefore, you should consider leaving your car in another coastal town that is well connected to Positano and has a better parking situation.
Where to park in Positano
Even though there are some parking places in Positano, they are often full and costly, so keep that in mind before entering the town by car. Fortunately, there is a way to save some money on parking and to be sure that there will be one parking place available for you. You have to reserve your parking space in advance. This is a very common practice in Positano, especially in the summer months. If you choose a full-day rental parking space, you will pay a much better price. Here are the best parking places in Positano:
Parking in Positano near center
The Mulini area is the most popular among tourists looking for parking in Positano. It is the only parking area that offers direct access to the center of the town. Actually, you will find yourself immediately in the middle of shopping streets while remaining only a stone’s throw away from the main beach. But, keep in mind that this is the most popular area, and therefore it is very hard to find an available parking spot. The best shot is to try early in the morning when the town is not so crowded yet.
Parking located in Piazza dei Mulini is called Migliaccio parking. The prices are a little higher than in other parking places in the town, but it is highly convenient for those arriving or leaving at any time of the day or evening. Pay attention to the entrances and exits because all the way around is a pedestrian street. Another parking on Piazza dei Mulini is called Parking Russo.
