One of Amalfi’s few bargains is set on a small square just beyond the main street fray, and provides a lot of pleasant, old-fashioned ambience in a 13th-century palazzo. Some of the large, high-ceilinged, tile-floored guest rooms have sea views, and all are furnished with a scattering of antiques. Amalfi’s beach is just steps away, and this is a handy base for excursions up and down the coast.
