Where to Book your Hotel on the Amalfi Coast

Mappa

When you decide to vacation on the Amalfi Coast, one of your first questions is inevitably, "Where should I stay?".

The first factor you should consider is your travel style and itinerary. If you are planning on daytripping and taking an number of tours, we suggest the towns of Positano and Amalfi, which are transportation hubs and convenient bases to explore the entire coast. If you are looking forward to settling in and relaxing during your stay, opt for Praiano, Ravello, or one of the smaller villages like Conca de' Marini.

Some helpful tips about which town to choose:

Ravello

Places

Ravello

Just the right place for you:
if you're looking for a peaceful location with spectacular views.
if you love music: each year Ravello holds an important classical music review.
Not for you:
if you love the beach: it's the only town on the Amalfi Coast without one.
Amalfi and Atrani

Places

Amalfi and Atrani

Just perfect for:

Not the best choice for:
those looking for a peaceful retreat: especially in high season when Amalfi can be crowded with holidaymakers.
Praiano and Conca dei Marini

Places

Praiano and Conca dei Marini

The ideal place for:
Honeymooners: you can't get more romantic than this.
Sun worshippers: the beaches catch the sun from dawn 'til dusk.
Walkers: this is where the Sentiero degli Dei begins.
Think twice:
if you're planning on visiting Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples or Paestum while you're here. It's quite a long way from the main transportation hubs.
