Amalfi town centre 3 star Hotel Centrale overlooks the
grand Piazza del Duomo and the imposing Cathedral of Sant'Andrea
(built in the 6th century), which is Amalfi's centerpiece
and the heart of the town, yet just seconds from the beach
too! Amalfi has a year-round atmosphere, but it's probably
during the long summer months that it really comes into
its own. After a day taking the sun you might find the
balmy nights and coastal breeze a welcome respite from
the midday Mediterranean heat.
The Amalfi Coast is talked of worldwide, but you'll need
to know how to get there first before enjoying it yourself!
Obviously that all depends on where you're starting from,
but the majority of people arrive into Napoli and then make
their way from there.
The quickest and least complicated way to Amalfi from Napoli
is by taking one of the numerous and comfortable ferries that
run all year round from the port. If you've arrived by train,
the ferry port isn't too far from the station and there are
many buses and taxis available at the railway station, should
you be carrying lots of luggage.
The ferry ride is a stunning introduction to this coastline
and very much recommended. It's sure to put you in the perfect
holiday mood, as you glide over turquoise waters past spectacular
coves en route to Amalfi.
If you're more suited to train travel or just fancy a different
way to arrive, there's also a very reasonably priced regional
train service available (Circumvesuviana). This leaves from
Napoli Centrale (Piazza Garabaldi) and arrives at Sorrento,
for just €3.30. From there you'll need to take the SITA
bus along the coast, but it's a memorable journey (you can
find the timetable for this in our Useful
Links section). The ride takes in all the sights
including Positano and Praiano, and all for a very competitive
price of €5.50.
