There are many joys to be found in traveling, especially to a place as filled with history and beauty as Italy. One of those must surely be the shoulder-season room upgrade! LOL - but seriously, what's more fun than finding out the gorgeous room you booked has morphed into a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom suite complete with an enormous living room and a kitchen?
I chose the Palazzo Murat in Positano after much angst and research. Tripadvisor rated it #1 on the Amalfi Coast. Could it really be better than my first choice, Le Sirenuse, a stylish gem? The Conde Nast Gold List is seldom wrong, but as it turned out - no children allowed at Le Sirenuse. My only real reservation about Palazzo Murat was the rooms are not directly facing the sea. But so many great factors made up for that - the central location, the quiet ambiance, the amazing gardens and easy access to the main beach.
The Palazzo Murat is located three minutes walk below the main road, which eliminates road noise issues. It is two minutes walk above the main beach via delightful stairs and alleyways full of shops. This eliminates noise from the beach and its adjacent restaurants. Even the church ceases ringing its bells from 7pm to late morning. Quiet comfort is the byword at the Palazzo.
Go to Positano (off season) and stay at the Palazzo Murat. It is a gem! All of my pictures are posted on my blog at:
