When choosing the Amalfi Coast as a destination for a trip, the first question that arises is “where to stay”?
The first thing to do definitely to understand which kind of holiday you would like to have; if you want to move and do many tours, the suggestions would be the towns Positano and Amalfi, from where it is easier to get around. But if you really prefer a relaxing stay, you could opt for Praiano, Ravello or small resorts such as Conca dei Marini.


This is the right place for you if:
You are looking for a quiet place with beautiful landscape
You love music: every summer in Ravello an important music festival is held
Not to recommend if:
You love the beach life: it is the only place of the Amalfi Coast situated away from the sea (it is located in the hills)

Amalfi and Atrani

Are perfect for:
Those who love history and architecture
Those who want to be in the center of the Amalfi Coast
Not ideal for:
Those looking for a quiet and withdrawn place: especially during high season the Amalfi Coast can be chaotic

Praiano and Conca dei Marini

The ideal place for:
Couples on their honeymoon; it is a place filled with romance
Lovers of beach life; it is one of the towns on the Amalfi Coast where the sun sets later in the evening
Trekkers; from these places you can take the ‘Sentiero degli Dei’
Choose carefully:
If you want do to excursions to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples and Paestum. It is located quite a distance from the main connecting points.


Is the best choice for:
Young romantic couples
Lovers of glamour and nightlife
Can be unwieldy if:
Travelling with children in strollers; it is a vertical city and the permanent presence of stairs would make it difficult to move

Sant’ Agata and Nerano

Are perfect to:
Make a gastronomic tour enjoying the flavors of the coast
Enjoy long days on the beach
Better elsewhere if:
You want to travel far and long distances: it is located closer to the Sorrento coastline than the Amalfi Coast

Minori and Maiori

Is the best choice if:
You travel with children; the beach of Maiori is the most comfortable one on the Amalfi coast and has a great promenade
Better elsewhere if:
You are a couple looking for a glamorous and fashionable place

Cetara and Vietri sul Mare

To be selected if:
For you being on holidays means mainly to eat well
You seek a true glimpse of the Amalfi Coast
You will find better elsewhere if:
You are looking for glamour and worldwide experience
