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:

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.
