Tips for Hotels on the Amalfi Coast with excellent value for money
When we talk about the Amalfi Coast, in the Campania region, it is not difficult to think of fantastic panoramas, delightful cities and very high prices! However, knowing how and where to stay, it is possible to find the PERFECT hotel and save a lot on accommodation expenses! Come with me! Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams !!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”.
When we talk about the Amalfi Coast, it’s always good to remember that you don’t necessarily need to stay in the most “trendy” city in the region; even because the cities are very close to each other and you can use the available public transport without any problems (you can check itineraries and timetables on the official website of the responsible company, Salerno Turistica – attention: timetables may change according to the seasons of the year, ok?! Pay attention to that!).
- If you’re looking for excellent value for money options, I’ll give you a tip: opt for the less “popular” cities.
- Note that, as they are small towns, the accommodation option does not always offer us many choices, however, by booking in advance, it is possible to find much more affordable prices; Avoid to travel at the high season! Springtime is a great option for those who want to save money!
Good to know:
- It is also good to mention that the entire Amalfi Coast offers us excellent tourist facilities! Shops, restaurants, bars, but also great natural attractions such as parks, beaches and monuments, so don’t worry if you don’t stay in the city you’ve always dreamed of.
- it’s often worth staying a little further away and thus avoiding – also – the great tourist mass that, especially during the summer, can end up “bothering” the peace and tranquility you are looking for. Even because many cities put on shows with live music in various locations, including downtown, until late at night, so this may bother those who are lighter sleepers or are used to a sleep routine in which they prefer to sleep earlier.
So, let’s go to our list of hotels with the best value for money on the Amalfi Coast!

Let’s get to know a little more about the Amalfi Coast?
The Amalfi Coast is a group of cities located in the Campania region of southern Italy. When we talk about the Amalfi Coast, there is some divergence in some information about which cities are part of it, but, officially, the cities that belong to the coast are: Amalfi, Atrani, Cetara, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Maiori, Minori, Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Scala, Tramonti and Vietri sul Mare. Some people include Capri in the list of cities, probably because of its proximity to other cities, but it is not on the official list. Let’s learn a little bit more about each city!
It is one of the four Maritime Republics. Legend has it that Amalfi, the city that names the coast, was founded by Hercules who was in love with a woman, and kidnapped her because of the color of her eyes, which was exactly the color of the sea he loved so much. The girl’s name? Amalfi. Unhappy, she died at a young age and Hercules buried her in a place where the sea would have rocked her forever. The city is beautiful and very famous all over the world.
This is the second smallest commune in Italy (the first smallest one is Valsassina in Lombardy). Atrani is tiny, but its beauty impresses even the sharpest eyes! The city is one of the few on the Amalfi Coast that has managed to remain largely untouched by the mass tourism that has flooded the area in recent decades. What impresses the most here are its characteristic fishing villages, but the Church of San Salvatore, which “changes color” during sunset, is an unmissable sight!
Cetara is a village that, like Atrani, is also not part of the amazing tourist flows in the region. The word Cetara, comes from the Latin, “cetaria“, and means “trap”. Cetara was founded by the Cetari, who were Etruscan tuna fishermen. If you wake up early and your hotel offers you a view over the sea, you probably will see the movement of fishermen going to catch their fish in the traps. The tradition of Cetara fishing is translated into the local gastronomy: the Cetara anchovy sauce is a typical dish and it is DELICIOUS!
Conca dei Marini
It is the favorite village of the “rich and famous”, the reunion point of the jetsetters! With maritime origins, it is very common to see the splendid yachts anchored here, especially during the summer. Tourism in the region was greatly influenced by Conca and, therefore, to this day, it is one of the most popular destinations on the Italian coast.
Furore “hides” some of its beauty, but when it presents properly to us, “poor mortals”: OH MY GOD! What a splendid place! The city presents itself with certain shyness, but when we explore it, we understand everything and a much more: Furore has an almost remote fjord that we can only reach after a few kilometers of walking. The city is divided into two parts; one of them is a kind of natural border. Here nature “revolted” and did not let human hands change a thing!
Maiori! Looking in the distance, it looks like an inverted fan resting on the sea. Beautiful? No! It’s magnificent! Here we find the most splendid beach on the Amalfi Coast and the largest in terms of sand. The beach has white sands, an impressive emerald green – due to its surrounding vegetation – and the blue of the sea serves as a precious frame: the whole scene, put together, enchants us!
One of the cities with the most fertile soil in the entire territory! Here is where countless citrus fruits are produced, from lemons to oranges. In recent years Minori has become a very popular destination and its temperate climate makes the city a place that can be visited at any time of the year.
We almost don’t need to introduce this AWESOME village! Its territorial structure is unparalleled, as it is, in fact, inserted in the mountain, as if it were a precious diamond ready to be worked! From a distance we might not see all its beauty, but Positano is a active city, especially during the summer. Its access road, the SS 163, already gives us an idea of what we will find there: unique colors and panoramas, which become even more special during sunset.
The city is located between Positano and Conca dei Marini and is very famous for its narrow streets that, along the way, turn into staircases – not always easy to walk through, by the way. Praiano has sanctuaries scattered all over the village, as well small altars built by local families as a way of saying thanks and asking for protection when they move into their new home. In the center of the city you will find the wonderful Church of San Luca Evangelista with its white facade that leaves us speechless, even if we don’t want to!
Ravello is another very famous city, especially for its hanging gardens of Villa Ruffolo, which is a splendid example of what the word beauty really means! The panorama of the entire city offers us a view that many paintings by great artists would envy.
It may be one of the lesser-known towns on the entire Amalfi Coast, but it’s still elegantly beautiful! Scala sits on a hill 400 meters above sea level and, according to numerous documents, is the oldest city on the entire Amalfi Coast. Its location was thought to be able to defend the city from attacks by people who could come from the sea. It’s good to remember that the original village is not the one we see nowadays, as it was destroyed and rebuilt in the Middle Ages, accentuating the defensive function of the territory, but what we find in Scala will be able to win your heart, trust me!
Tramonti, in Italian, means “land between the mountains”. The city is, of course, on the slopes of the Lattari Mountains and is surrounded by 145 hectares of woods and terraces with various lemon trees, olive trees and vines. Tramonti is divided into 13 small villages: Pucara, Novella, Gete, Ponte, Campinola, Corsano, Cesarano, Pietre, Capitignano, Figline, Paterno Sant’Arcangelo, Paterno Sant’Elia and Polvica. It has a very “intimate” relation with Amalfi, as it has directly contributed to the economic and commercial development of the territory.
Vietri sul Mare
Last but not least, we have the “entrance door” to the entire Amalfi Coast: Vietri sul Mare. It is only in “last place” for alphabetical reasons, but this city is offers us an endless charm! Vietri sul Mare is very famous all over the world for its tradition of working with ceramics and, of course, here you will find numerous studios with fantastic pieces! The small streets of Vietri sul Mare look like small open-air museums where the walls are true works of art made up of beautiful tiles.
