The Amalfi Coast is magnificent. Absolutely breathtaking. When traveling to Italy, one of the most difficult decisions to make is where in the country you are going to decide to visit. My recommendation is to definitely choose more than one, and if you desire a luxury beach hotel while in Italy, I have just the place. One of the most beautiful properties I have found on this coast is the stunning Hotel Santa Caterina. It has an understated luxury that attracts the discerning traveler who appreciates hospitality and refined luxury.
The hotel boast some of the most incredible views and vibrant accommodations, and the breadth of facilities available ensure that if you chose not to leave the property, you would be more than taken care of.
The closest airport for visiting the Amalfi Coast would be Naples, which is approximately 1 hour and 30 min by either car or train. It's also about 3 hours and 30 min from Rome, which makes it a nice companion destination for travelers looking to visit two distinct areas while in Italy, by choosing to split time in both locations. Traveling through Italy by train and seeing the countryside while you move from destination to destination is something I highly recommend. However you fit the Amalfi Coast in your travel plans, my only suggestion is that you absolutely do it!
