WHAT WE LIKED THE MOST
Without a doubt, THE VIEW. The breath-taking view of the Positano coast, with the morning sun shining on the buildings at the mountain, is without a doubt our favourite about the place. The best part about mornings in Villa Fiorentino is that, they serve your breakfast on your private balcony overlooking the coast. Does it get any better? I doubt it!
Hospitality has been the Fiorentino family’s life philosophy for the past three generations. We were met with smiling faces and given a very warm welcome by the family who owns Villa Fiorentino. They were very accommodating upon meeting and informative about the hotel, the area, it’s services and facilities. They were really good at making us feel comfortable and at home at Villa Fiorentino. During our stay, we asked them which restaurants they could recommend, and they gave us a list and even offered to make reservations on our behalf. Villa Fiorentino’s staff really does their best to make your holiday the best possible.
Last but not least, the location of the hotel is perfect for those wanting to explore what Positano has to offer. Villa Florentino is only a few steps from the main street. Not close enough that you can hear the noise coming from the area, but only a few steps from it.Perfect if you want a bit of privacy during your stay. It is also close to small minimarkets and the bus stops to and from Sorrento, Amalfi and Ravello. Everything you need are just a few steps away from Villa Florentino.

We tried the relaxation massage, and was indeed very relaxing! Well-deserved after a long day of exploring the city of Positano! Included in the massage is access to their exclusive jet pool jacuzzi overlooking the coast. Each treatment ends with a selection herbal teas or prosecco flute served on the panoramic Jacuzzi jet pool
We stayed in one of Villa Fiorentino’s Superior rooms which was very spacious, traditional Italian designed with hand-painted tails and its own balcony with sunbeds, facing the coast. It was very clean and had a big bathroom with both a rain shower and body showers. The room is located on the second floor of the Villa.

Villa Fiorentino is located on a rock high above the sea and only a few minutes from the beach and the main street. As mentioned above, the bus stop for the busses along the Amalfi Coast is 2 mins walking distance from the hotel, as are several small markets.
Positano due to his natural morphology is vertical, so stairs are part of this beautiful town, with all the houses built on the cliffs until the sea but absolutely worth it once in the life!
HOW TO GET THERE
We stayed in Sorrento before going to Positano. From there, we took a bus to Positano Center, then walked to the hotel. There are regular bus departures from Sorrento to Positano, so it is easy to catch one. Here are the other options below:
Coming from South the Amalfi coast can be entered from Vietri sul Mare and following the coast by crossing Cetara, Minori, Atrani, Amalfi and leaving behind Praiano, one arrives in Positano. Coming from North, to reach Naples, take the A3 motorway Naples-Pompei-Salerno. Exit at Castellammare di Stabia and follow directions to Positano/Amalfi.
We suggest to land at Capodichino Airport in Naples (50 km). You can hire a taxi or bus for you transfer. If you have a car follow the instructions on how to “get there by car”.
From Salerno train station, is possible to take the Sita Bus. From Naples train station, is possible to take the train to Sorrento (Circumvesuviana – Naples-Sorrento). From Sorrento take the Sita bus to Positano.
Hydrofoils and ferry boats leave the harbour of Molo Beverello in Naples approximately every hour. The journey takes about 40 minutes. The port of Sorrento “Marina Piccola”, is very close to the town centre from where you can take a Sita bus to Positano or take a taxi.
