Hotel Palazzo Murat is a little oasis in the centre of Positano. As soon as you enter this 19th century residence from Positano’s bustling pedestrianised street, you’re immediately surrounded by immaculate Mediterranean gardens with scented lemon and orange trees and exotic plants. It’s a stunning hotel that’s been carefully decorated in a classic yet minimalist Neapolitan style. Whitewashed walls are accented by local art and antique furnishings, and vietri tiles are laid out on the floor. The décor continues in the comfortable rooms that offer a peaceful retreat with plenty of space and a private terrace or balcony with views of the gardens or the sea.

We recommend trying out the hotel’s restaurant on at least one night of your stay (payable locally). It’s popular with both guests and locals and serves excellent local cuisine. The terrace is an ideal dining spot during the summer when you can enjoy the shade of the well-established lemon trees. At the edge of the garden, you’ll find the pool and a large sundeck equipped with comfy loungers. The views over Positano and sea from here are spectacular.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 25 mins by private car from Naples airport.

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast rolls out along the southern Sorrentine Peninsula, where the Lattari Mountains drop straight into the Tyrrhenian Sea. Pastel villages cling to cliffs and beach-lined bays, all tied together by improbably scenic footpaths that have always connected these communities – and the lemon terraces, vineyards and secret swim spots in-between. Wherever you go, you’ll never be short of a place to sample a gelato with a view. Plus, some of the most famous sights in southern Italy are an easy day trip away. You’ve just got to decide if you fancy digging into Roman history in Pompeii… or into the celebrated pizza napoletana of Naples.

Amalfi, Positano, Ravello & beyond

Each village along the Amalfi Coast has its own forte. Positano stars on magazine covers and Instagram feeds the world over, drawing in photographers – and everyone else – with its precipitous perch and Byzantine church. Music lovers, meanwhile, pilgrimage to Ravello for the concerts that pop up in one of its many cliffside gardens during the Ravello Music Festival. Visit Amalfi to find out about the intriguing history of papermaking on the Amalfi Coast – or seek out a rare stretch of beach in Maiori for an ice granita with a squeeze of lemon.

Boots & boats… but ditch the car

Call us biased, but we don’t recommend driving around the Amalfi Coast if you can help it. The single winding road, packed with coaches and cars, is usually more trouble than its worth in the summer. Instead, look to the walking and sailing routes that have long linked the tight-knit communities here. Footpaths and mule tracks duck and dive between towns and bays, while boats are bound for the chic shops and luminous Blue Grotto of Capri.

Walk with the gods

The Path of the Gods is the most famous footpath on the Amalfi Coast. This 9km hike is best taken slowly – all the better for admiring the sea views around every corner. Walking routes also lead into the leafy peace of the Valle delle Ferriere, where waterfalls and abandoned mills lie, and past crumbling sun-bleached temples. There are some moderate to challenging ascents and descents, including many a stone staircase (this is the Amalfi Coast, after all). Your reward, however, is those unbeatable bird’s-eye views.

Limoncello with a view

On the Amalfi Coast, it’s practically a case of pick a trattoria, any trattoria when looking for dinner with a vista. Recipes range from Caprese salad with locally made mozzarella to gnocchi-like ndunderi to lemon… well, everything, really. Torts, granitas, gelato and limoncello are all made from the football-sized lemons grown on the Amalfi Coast. Seafood is a must-try too – usually hauled in from the sea that morning. It’s all excellent fuel for a day of coastal hiking.
