Overnight stay in Pogerola (above Amalfi)
The town of Amalfi gives its name to the entire coast and is an international tourist magnet with correspondingly high accommodation prices. For long-distance hikers in good shape, we therefore recommend an overnight stay a little above Amalfi in the small village of "Pogerola" (approx. 1 hour additional walk). There are some very nice and comparatively affordable bed & breakfast accommodations and a sufficiently large selection of pizzerias and restaurants. Highly recommended is the Bed&Breakfast L'Arabesco, newly opened in 2014, with only 3 rooms (see picture above, Bed&Breakfast L'Arabesco) and a very lovingly prepared breakfast on the sun terrace. Located directly on the small village square of Pogerola and also highly recommended is the B&B Villa Maria (B&B Villa Maria), which, however, is usually booked up very far in advance.
Stay overnight in Amalfi
However, despite the somewhat higher prices, an overnight stay directly in Amalfi does have its appeal: as soon as all the day tourists have left in the late afternoon, it is much easier to guess why Amalfi has become so famous. And anyone planning a normal hiking holiday on the Amalfi Coast instead of a long-distance hike should stay overnight in Amalfi anyway. Pogerola is not sufficiently connected to the SITA bus lines for this purpose.
