Hotel Buca di Bacco Positano
Hotel Buca di Bacco Positano is ideally situated in Positano overlooking the beach. The location can't been more beautiful. It is right in the heart of town where all the shops and restaurants are. It is just a few steps from the beach and also central to the pier. Very convenient if you plan to take a boat ride to the other Amalfi Coast stops; Capri, Amalfi, etc. Remember, Positano is in a mountain. So keep in mind when booking this hotel. It's a long walk up a vertical climb, which consists of cobble stone and steps. Even getting to the main road that is half way up is a workout. Be advised, the hotel is situated in the pedestrian only part of Positano. You either need to be prepared to call for a porter, or carry the bags down many stairs and then to the lobby.
