Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Fontana is in Amalfi's Piazza Duomo, so it's at the centre of the action. Inside the small, historic building, it's calm and tranquil. The simple rooms are fresh and bright, decorated in Mediterranean blues and whites. They have views across the piazza, so you can watch the hustle and bustle of the town from the peace and quiet of your room.

You'll be in prime position to discover the treasures of the Amalfi Coast. Both the bus station and ferry port are close to the hotel, so you can take to the scenic costal roads to visit towns and villages like Positano, Ravello, Maiori and Miori or even hop on a boat across to glamorous Capri for the day. There's some great walking trails about too - if that's your kind of thing be sure to pack your boots. The hike up through the lemon groves to Valle delle Ferriere waterfalls is one of our favourites.

Breakfast at the here is really good - you'll have a wide choice of continental options. In the evening's you'll have the chance to try out Amalfi's food scene. There are lots of nice restaurants nearby. The staff are really friendly and helpful – so check with them for the best local recommendations.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by private car from Naples Airport.

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most recognisable images of Italy. This 50-kilometre-long coastline of plunging cliffs is topped with sky-scraping viewpoints. The towns step down the cliffs in a jumble of pastel houses and church domes, before fetching up at tiny harbours where you'll find some of the country's finest seafood.

What to see on an Amalfi Coast holiday

Although alike in looks, each town has its own forte. Ravello is known for its terraced gardens and clifftop summer music festival. Amalfi has a grand eighth-century cathedral, while Positano offers the Byzantine Church of Santa Maria Assunta and a great beach to relax on. 

Amalfi Coast holidays also leave you perfectly poised for exploring the rest of the region from Sorrento, Ischia and Capri to Naples, Pompeii and Vesuvius.
