We loved the Villa Lara. At first, we were a little concerned about the photos of the town on the website because the view appeared from a great height and upon our arrival, we would walk through the town with our "carry on" baggage. But there is an elevator (50 second ride...no kidding!) and the walk through the town is really quite comfortable and pleasant. The view is beautiful indeed. We had a great room with a skylight. The shower was lacking in water pressure, but we would gladly stay there again. Nello is a wonderful host and gave us recommendations for a GREAT pizzaria nearby. It was so great we ate there every night of our stay! The town of Amalfi is most unpleasant during the day because of the huge number of day trippers and cruise ship guests. But after about 5:00, it is charming. We went up to Ravello one day to escape the crowds and took the bus south of Amalfi to some lesser known but charming little towns. If you are planning to go to Paestum, it is not an easy trip. Worth it, but tricky unless you are quite adventurous. We took the ferry back to Sorrento and loved our stay. The Villa Lara completely satisfied our needs for Amalfi. P.S. We had left our car in Sorrento and hired a driver to navigate the Amalfi Coast. It was a wonderful decision which allowed my husband to enjoy the view and unlike the Sita buses, the driver stopped numerous times to allow us to take photos. Well worth the money.
