Amalfi Coast: Where to Stay

Thinking of visiting the Amalfi Coast? Wondering where to stay?

Well, I've somewhere that is pretty much as close to heaven on earth as I have ever experienced. Ideal if your vacation on the Amalfi Coast is for a special occasion, especially in the case of an anniversary or a honeymoon in Italy.

For anything romantic there is no better choice. 

Ideally, if you are on a budget and the Amalfi Coast is part of an itinerary, you could limit it to 3 days on the Amalfi Coast and then elsewhere in Italy.

Italy is full of wonderful options, destinations where prices are a lot less expensive than the Amalfi Coast.

None of them can beat the Amalfi Coast though. None offer as intoxicating a mix of romance, atmosphere and scenery.

I guess that is why the prices here are so high. If you can afford it you should afford it. Spend the money on your time here and then save elsewhere.

3 Days in Amalfi

I recommend you combine a minimum of 3 days (five days would be better) for your Amalfi Coast itinerary (here are some must-see places you will not want to miss) with at least  ten days elsewhere.  

I've some really affordable options, throughout all of Italy, in my Italian itinerary guide.  

You can adapt the guide according to how long you have in Italy and which part of Italy you would prefer to visit. Don't try to see too much though.

That Dreamy Hotel

Okay, enough delaying. Where is this wonderful hotel in Amalfi I am talking about? It is in the delightful little town of Amalfi itself and is called the Hotel Santa Caterina.  You can read more about it in our feature on the hotels of the Amalfi Coast here. 

I can't really put into words how lovely it is. I think the video at the top of this page will explain it better than I ever could. Like I say, it isn't a bargain, but the memories you will make here are priceless.
