We are very pleased by our recent stay at Hotel Marina Riviera. A 50th Birthday celebration was our reason in staying in Amalfi and the views of the Amalfi Coast was a great treat. The room had a very large window that receded into the wall which allowed the sounds of the waves in. The front desk was very helpful in suggesting a nice dinner. I did alot of research of the area and will be more than happy to help if you have any questions. The coastal drive from Naples was left to our driver (Great Suggestion About The Driver) and the rest of the transportation was with Bus and Ferry (and Jet Boat). I suggest taking motion sickness pills when riding the bus to any of the other towns along the coast. The bus can be hot and the smell and winding roads and be a recipe for disaster. A small bag of candy ginger can be helpful. Please do not rent a car as there are no available parking spaces along the coast and the roads are really built for one car but somehow two cars or bus(s) make it through. It is a hair raising experience. As with the hotel, we could have not picked a better spot as the bus and ferry port was near by to explore other areas of the coast and the made to order eggs and coffee and other items for breakfast make it seem that you are on a cruise to many ports. There are alot of things to remember when using the bus as you must have your bus ticket stamped before sitting down or the "Bus Police" that board so often will fine you 40 Euro(s). Paestam (Greek Ruins) due south is another treat and a 50 minute bus ride to Salerno and a 30 Minute Train ride south will get you there but remember to stamp your train ticket before boarding or the same "police" will fine you. The Greek Ruins in Paestam is worth the trip as it reminds anyone of Athens Greece. The small town of Ravello is a 25 minute ride above Amalfi and there are lovely concerts played at the Palace. One of the top 10 pools of the world is located in Ravello at Hotel Caruso. The Island of Capri is close by if you take the Jet Boat but watch the time when the last boat returns to Amalfi or a boat to Naples and a long bus ride to Amalfi will be the next step. Many have said the the Blue Groto is not worth it since there are a lot of people trying to fit through a small hole and many hands are out for tips. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
