Praiano (La Gavitella)
Car: not necessary


When staying at La Dolce Vita you will be centrally located, but at the same time away from the tourist hustle and bustle.

Praiano is the last remaining mariner`s village of the coast, at just 7 km from Amalfi and Positano, the hotel is also just a few steps away from the crystal-clear sea. During your stay you can take advantage of the hotel’s facilities, including: a solarium with bar service, pedal boats, wooden rowing boats (all used to reveal hidden beaches, paradise corners and unexpected grottoes), a scuba diving centre with modern equipments to discover the precious depth of the sea and daily departures to Positano, Amalfi, Capri and for all the other localities of the Amalfi Coast and Neapolitan Riviera. You must indeed take a tour of the coast from the sea.

If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, and, of course, Naples and Salerno as well.

How to get there

There are several ways to get to Amalfi from Naples Capodichino Airport or Naples / Salerno Train station either by renting a car or by public transport. It is also possible to arrange private transfer directly to the your property.

Ask us for quotation.

Once at the property you can get around fine without the car as parking in the towns is hard to come by and expensive. Public Buses operate year-around connecting Ravello to Amalfi, where are buses to all the Amalfi Coast villages and Sorrento area. Ferries (from May to October) operate a service between Amalfi - Positano - Sorrento - Capri Island - Naples and Salerno.
