Steinbeck at Positano’s Sirenuse

When John Steinbeck first saw Positano, he felt like he was living in “a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone”.

The American writer visited the beautiful city on the Amalfi Coast in 1953, barely two years after Marquis Paolo Sersale had transformed an old manor house into the Sirenuse: “a first class hotel, spotless and cool, with grape arbors over its outside dining rooms.”

“Every room”, Steinbeck went on, “has its little balcony and looks out over the blue sea to the islands of the sirens from which those ladies sang so sweetly.”

The Sirenuse itself is as seductive as a siren, and will make you wish you could never leave.
