ACCOMMODATION

 

 

Where to stay on the Amalfi Coast


The enchanting stretch of coastline that extends between Positano and Vietri Sul Mare and overlooks the Gulf of Salerno, in Campania, is known worldwide as the Amalfi Coast.
This natural paradise has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 and is currently one of the major tourist destinations in Italy, located less than 60 kilometers from Naples.
The colorful villages overlooking the sea, with their intertwined and picturesque alleys, are also enchanting. Here, you can experience and savor the true local culture through gastronomic specialties and traditions that bring these magical places to life.
Let’s take a look at the areas that are absolutely worth visiting on the Amalfi Coast, and where it’s convenient to stay in this Italian gem.

How to move along the Amalfi Coast

Exploring the Amalfi Coast requires detailed planning, especially when it comes to choosing where to stay, which is linked to the chosen means of transportation:
 
  • Bus (economical): If you want to visit the coast using the bus line, then Amalfi could be a good base. Being a central hub for public transportation, staying in Amalfi allows for easy travel using the numerous bus routes connecting the town with the rest of the coast, reducing potential stress associated with driving along the often narrow and winding roads in the area.
 
  • Car (not recommended): Opting to travel by car is a risky choice. This is because the roads are very narrow and congested, and during the tourist season, there is a lot of traffic. Additionally, parking is very expensive, around 40 euros per day in the most touristy cities like Amalfi. Choosing Ravello offers advantages in terms of parking. 
 
  • Motorcycle/Scooter (recommended): exploring the coast on two wheels is definitely the preferred method if you are familiar with two-wheeled vehicles. This is because the roads, although sometimes narrow, offer breathtaking views that are particularly enjoyed while traveling on two wheels, and it avoids the main traffic jams that can form in the most well-known areas. Additionally, parking costs considerably less, and it is not necessary to pay in all locations, unlike with a car.
 

Sleeping in Cetara and Vietri sul Mare – Recommended

 
Located on the slopes of Mount Falerio, the village of Cetara is known for tuna fishing and for the production of anchovy sauce, making it the ideal place to savor local seafood. A place of ancient maritime traditions that is still alive today.
 
Vietri sul Mare is the first town on the Amalfi Coast, coming from Salerno, and is famous for its ceramics: here you can find the Museum of Vietri Ceramics, located inside the wonderful Villa Guariglia.
 

Sleeping in Amalfi

Recommended if You Are Without Transportation
 
The town that gives its name to the coast has an important commercial history, as it was the first of the four Maritime Republics. Its white houses nestled in the rock protect the harbor, which was once a power in commercial traffic with the East, while its alleys conceal wonders such as the square where the Cathedral of St. Andrew and the Cloister of Paradise stand.
 
 

Sleeping in Positano and What to See 

Recommended only if you have a car and your hotel includes parking
 
One of the most renowned destinations on the Amalfi Coast, the fishing village of Positano is situated in a picturesque panoramic position between Punta Germano and Capo Sottile. This colorful town perched on the sea rests on Marina Grande, a romantic beach that makes this village a fairytale place.
 
Furthermore, it is possible to take boat excursions to some of the numerous islands and surrounding locations.
For hiking enthusiasts, numerous itineraries depart and arrive from Positano, one of the most well-known being the marvelous Path of the Gods.
 

Sleeping in Praiano and Conca dei Marini

 
Nestled in one of the most beautiful coves of the coast between Amalfi and Positano, Praiano is an ancient fishing village characterized by inlets and coves, and flowered staircases where scents are lost in a romantic panorama. 
 

Sleeping in Sorrento 


Recommended for the most convenient prices
 
A well-known destination, Sorrento is a town rich in history.
If you’re considering renting a car, this would be the best place for prices, but remember that it is not properly on the Amalfi coast and that it will take time to reach the other cities: 40 minutes to get to Positano or 1,20 h to get to Amalfi.
 

Sleeping in Ravello

 
Now let’s move on to the part of the coast located west of Amalfi. Less known but equally fascinating, Ravello is situated inland, between Minori and Amalfi, and is known as the City of Music.
 

Sleeping in Minori and Maiori

 
The terraces, colorful houses, and lemon groves characterize the seaside village of Minori.
 
The wide selection of local products makes Minori the ideal place to savor the tasty local specialties. On the other hand, Maiori is characterized by a large seafront.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where to Stay on the Amalfi Coast on a Budget?

 
Along the Amalfi Coast, there are many small villages where you can stay for less compared to well-known ones like Amalfi and Positano as Tramonti, Atrani, Scala or Erchie
 
 

The Best Base for Visiting the Amalfi Coast?

 
Certainly, the best base locations are also the most well-known because they offer many services to tourists. This changes if you have a means of transportation and can move around freely.

HOW TO ENJOY THE AMALFI COAST

 

To visit the Amalfi Coast and see all the main attractions, a week wouldn’t even be enough, so make the most of the time available.

Here’s a list of the MUST TO DO

Visit the city of Amalfi

Amalfi was one of the ancient Maritime Republics, and here it is certainly worth visiting the Cathedral of St. Andrew, the Arsenal Museum, and the Paper Museum. In Amalfi, there were once mills that fed factories for the production of “Amalfi paper,” which as early as 1220 was considered so precious that Frederick II prohibited its use for public acts. Among other things to do in Amalfi, we suggest you taste the specialty of local gastronomy: limoncello, produced with lemons from the Amalfi Coast PGI.

 

 

Boat tour on the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is wonderful and with its 50 kilometers of enchanting coast offers scenarios of incomparable beauty. The most beautiful and complete way to visit it? Definitely with a boat tour. The boat tour on the Amalfi Coast will allow you to discover the most beautiful corners of the coast and visit some of the cities of the Amalfi Coast. So enjoy a whole day among crystal-clear waters, hidden beaches, and breathtaking landscapes.
 
 

The ceramics of Vietri sul Mare

The Amalfi Coast is a true explosion of colors and flavors, and it is very likely that this is where the art of ancient Vietri ceramics takes its cue. Famous and appreciated for the uniqueness and beauty of ceramics, the city of Vietri must be absolutely visited. Vietri is the ideal place to spend a few hours shopping, strolling through craft shops, and buying some typical souvenirs of the Amalfi Coast.
 
 

Attend the Ravello Festival

Ravello needs no introduction from both a hospitality and a scenic beauty point of view. Known worldwide, Ravello is nicknamed the city of Music. It is a must to attend at least one concert of the renowned Ravello Festival, which takes place every year in the enchanting setting of Villa Rufolo or at the Oscar Niemeyer Auditorium.

 

 

See the Amalfi Coast from the Terrace of Infinity

Described as the most beautiful and suggestive place in the world, the gardens of Villa Cimbrone (Ravello) are an absolutely unmissable stop. Open all year round, from here you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama that spans the entire coast. The Terrace of Infinity describes this unparalleled natural balcony, adorned with eighteenth-century marble busts, from which sky and sea are so vividly blue that it is not possible to distinguish one from the other.

 

 

A sweet visit from the famous Sal de Riso

Sal de Riso, now famous internationally, is certainly the most famous pastry chef in Southern Italy. Despite his delights reaching the best hotels and outlets in Italy and Europe, it is worth visiting and spending a few hours with a Delizia al Limone or a Ricotta and Pear cake at the De Riso pastry shop in Minori. So if you are looking for a place to eat well on the Amalfi Coast, this is definitely one of them!

 

 

Diving at Punta Campanella

The Punta Campanella promontory is one of the most suggestive points of the entire Amalfi Coast, where you can see the Gulf of Salerno and the Gulf of Naples converge. In front of you, you will have a view of the island of Capri. This protected marine area offers its visitors unique and spectacular dives, thanks to the pleasantness of the places and the crystal-clear and uncontaminated water.

 

 

Shopping in Positano

Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast, is among the most enchanting and romantic places in the world. Also known as the city of “Positano Fashion,” it is a must to do some shopping in the many shops ranging from local craftsmanship to luxury boutiques, overlooking the seafront.
 
 

The Valley of the Mills

For lovers of natural landscapes, a visit to the uncontaminated naturalistic oasis of the Valley of the Mills, one of the most suggestive in Italy, cannot be missed. It starts from the ancient medieval village of Atrani and crosses the valley of the Dragone stream, until you reach the locality of Pontone, where you access the reserve of the Valley of the Mills. Here you can see a lush vegetation of tropical stamp, as well as waterfalls and springs, which are a natural habitat for rare plants and amphibians.
 
 

Path of the Gods

The Amalfi Coast is famous worldwide for its natural beauty, so we couldn’t help but put a hike on the Path of the Gods in first place among the things to do, from which, on clearer days, you can admire in all its splendor this corner of paradise that enchants numerous tourists and visitors day after day. It is a nature trail in the Lattari mountains, suitable for walks and excursions, which runs along the entire coastal strip for 7 km. In the hamlet of Positano, Nocelle, you will find perhaps the most interesting stretch of the Path of the Gods; in fact, it is here that the landscape becomes suggestive thanks to the alternation of pine forests, caves to explore, and especially spectacular views of the Amalfi Coast.
