About The Experience
Set in the center of Amalfi, this accommodation overlooks the picturesque seaside resort town, including the Moorish bell tower and cathedral. This Amalfi Coast apartment is right in the center of town, in the middle of it all, but high enough up so that noise disturbances are diminished. From this Amalfi apartment you can take busses or water transportation to towns and islands all along the Amalfi Coast.
Location Description

Set in the center of Amalfi, this property overlooks the picturesque seaside resort town, including its Moorish bell tower and cathedral. The flat is within easy walking distance of all essential services, including bars, shops, restaurants, banks, and the post office. An important trading center from the 9th to 13th centuries, Amalfi is surrounded by striking cliffs and coast. Among many shops and cafes you will enjoy the lovely architecture that surrounds you, including the Duomo in the center of town (with Asian influences) and the Cloister of Paradise, which takes a cue from Arabian styles. There is also a museum dedicated to the works of Morelli and a museum where you can view artifacts of Amalfi's long and interesting history. Of course, don't forget to spend some time on the beach! For local travel, approximately 130 steps from the apartment building lead up to the main road, and parking is available in a nearby garage (at an extra cost). However, driving the roads on the Amalfi Coast can be intimidating... but there is more than one way to get around in this beautiful area! There is a good system of buses operating from the nearby Piazza Flavio Gioia that will take you to Ravello, Scala, Sorrento, Salerno, and Positano. The standard blue SITA busses are marked with a blue and white sign and cost about 1-2 euros depending on your destination. Ferries and hydrofoils also offer daily service between Amalfi and Capri (1.5 hours), Positano (20 min), Ischia (2.5 hours), and Salerno (1 hour). The ferry service operates only during the summer.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Nearby Attractions: Amalfi (Duomo, Cloister of Paridise, Morelli museum, archaeological museum, beach), Ravello, Scala, Sorrento, Salerno, Positano.

Sorrento: 35 km/22 mi
Salerno: 27 km/17 mi
Positano: 22 km/14 mi
Scala: 5 km/3 mi
Ravello: 5 km/3 mi

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We were five ladies and had a fantastic holiday. Our overall experience is that we would definitely go back to Amalfi and stay at Ghita again.
Enjoyed Most:
Space, view, location very convenient, overall ambiance.
Enjoyed Least:
The uncomfortable beds - mattresses in the two 'smaller' bedroomsare quite firm and pillows very hard and uncomfortable. Washing machine instructions were very vague and the operating thereof proved to be a challenge but it added to the fun of staying there.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the area, wonderful vibe in the town and accessibility to other small towns in the vicinity and the shopping of course!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Amalfi - at the bottom of the stairs to the apartment
Tips or Restaurants:
The town has numerous restaurants within a five minute walk from the apartment. Whatever you need is available from the shops in the town all within a 5 minute walk
Directions:
We travelled from Napoli by taxi so can't comment.
Check In Out:
Yes - the lady who met us at the taxi walked us through Amalfi's main street. We had to carry our luggage from the beach front right up to the apartment. I suggest arranging for a porter (available in town).

Overall:
We, honestly, enjoyed every minute of our stay. Everything was at our fingertips and we wanted for nothing.
Enjoyed Most:
The view!! All around us the view was spectacular and we sat on the terrace upstairs, sipping sundowners, enjoying it to the full.
Enjoyed Least:
Unfortunately, the two beds in the bedroom adjacent to the lounge had extremely uncomfortable mattresses, which caused some sleepless nights
Surrounding Area:
The shops, the restaurants, the neighbouring sights to visit . . . everything really!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Minori, and not within our walking distance, but we used the public and sightseeing buses to visit neighbouring towns, i.e. Positano and Ravello.
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved everything about living in Amalfi - and lived the life by self-catering and eating what the locals eat, which was delicious!
Directions:
We were fetched in Naples, so the directions didn't affect us at all.
Check In Out:
We were met on our arrival by Maria, the house-cleaner, but she couldn't speak one word of English, which was most frustrating for us. When your clients are older, i.e. in their 60s, as we were, it would be such a favour to have the luggage carried or transported on the luggage-carrier on the stairs. We really struggled to do it ourselves. Thankfully, Franco, the handbag shop owner at the foot of the stairs, helped us by arranging someone to carry it when we left Amalfi. Also, the instructions for the washing machine were extremely confusing, resulting in time wasted trying to figure it out. Maybe it just needs clearer translation.

Nearby Events or Locales:
You are in the very heart of Amalfi!
Tips or Restaurants:
All good! Lovely place.
Directions:
We were met and taken to the property from outside Amalfi Cathedral. It was perfect.

All excellent--on time, very helpful,etc.
