How to find B&Bs in Amalfi

How much does a B&B in Amalfi cost?

Expect to pay anywhere from €70 to €140 for a double room at a typical B&B—though rates can start as low as €49.

To put that in perspective, B&Bs are usually anywhere from 5% to 40% cheaper than hotels in the same neighborhood. Plus, don't forget you're getting breakfast out of the deal (not to mention—usually—that small, cozy, welcoming atmosphere).

What is a Amalfi B&B like?

An Italian bed and breakfast essentially works something like a small hotel that provides breakfast and is located in the owner's home (or at least an a converted apartment in their building). The size is limited to no more than 3–4 rooms or 6–8 beds total.

This usually means a cozy, welcoming, friendly place with a bit more interaction with your hosts than at a hotel.

Note that there's a thin line (often just which set of local standards, requirements, and legal complications the owner wants to deal with) between what's called a B&B and what's called affittacamere (rental rooms).

How long does Amalfi take?

Planning your time: You could see every official "sight" in the town of Amalfi in 60–90 minutes—though it is a lovely place to relax for a while, maybe take a cappuccino on the piazza overlooking the steps up to the Duomo.

Amalfi also makes an ideal place to spend the night. It has several good restaurants, and the town is just large enough to keep the feeling that there's a bit of local life beyond the tourism, making it a joy to wander (the others—Positano and Ravello especially, may be more postcard-quaint and pretty, but Amalfi feels more real).

Besides, it is the one place on the Amalfi Coast where you have to switch buses—either to return west up the coast toward Postiano and Sorrento, to made a side trip up to pretty Ravello, or to continue east along the coast to Salerno.
