The apartment is located on the topmost floor of a building of medieval origin.
The building is part of the ancient palaces that were inhabited by the Dukes of
Amalfi in the eleventh century, when Amalfi was a powerful Sea Republic. You
will reach it from the main street of Amalfi along a short pedestrian pathway,
which includes 105 steps.
The pathway will give you a first brief contact with the maze of narrow
passageways and stairways that make up the incredible and spell-binding street
structure of the historical core of Amalfi.
To reach the apartment you will need to climb 45 more steps inside the building.
Once you arrive to your apartment, you will find out that it was well worth
climbing a few steps: you will be staying in a truly privileged place in the
most ancient and central part of Amalfi.
The apartment is beautiful, roomy and well furnished. It has very high ceilings,
and a lot of windows. Each window frames a piece of the charming panorama of
Amalfi, as if it were a painting: the Cathedral, the small port and the sea, or
the bunch of houses of the historical center, which clings to the rocky spur
that surround it, or the terraces where lemons are grown.
When you climb to the terrace that covers the entire apartment, you will have
this same panorama in all around you for 360 degrees: you will be able to see
the entire Amalfi, from the sea to the narrow and steep valley that holds the
village. The view of the Cathedral of Amalfi and of its famous bell tower, with
the sea on the background, is particularly suggestive. At sunset, you will be
able to see the golden tesserae of the mosaic of its façade glare under the last
rays of the sun that sets on the sea, while the shadow of the evening grow
longer and longer from the surrounding mountains.
You will reach the terrace along an external stairway. There you will find sun
lounges, tables and chairs and many pots full of flowers.
From Appartamento Enrietta A you will be able to walk in five minutes to the
square of the Cathedral of Amalfi, which is the "sitting room" of the village.
Here there are elegant shops and excellent cafes, pastry shops and restaurants
that setup their tables outdoor. You will find it very pleasant to stop here to
enjoy a cappuccino, an Italian ice cream or a "delizia al limone" (a "lemon
delight", the traditional cake of the Amalfi Coast), in front of the splendid
and imposing façade of the Cathedral.
If you walk for 50 more meters (55 yards) you will find the large Flavio Gioia
square, with its promenade along the sea, the access to the beaches, and the bus
station for the buses that connect all the villages along the coast, including
Ravello and Positano, as well as Pompeii and Paestum. Here there is also the
quay, where you will be able to board ferries or rent boats to visit the coast
from the sea and reach Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Ischia, Naples, Salerno and
To stay at Appartamento Enrietta A you will not need a car. Public transportation
is comfortable, cheap and efficient. If you have a car, you will be able to
reserve a parking spot, to be paid locally.
