Definitely not the most economic choice, however this hotel is a true gem for romantic couples and hosts quite a few weddings and banquets. Il Saraceno is located at a bit more than 2 kilometres from Amalfi town and it takes a shuttle bus service, a local bus or a car to get you there. The shuttle service is provided by the hotel at scheduled times.
The town of Amalfi is actually quite small, but you can perfectly stroll around through the narrow white alleys. Check out the shops for souvenirs and local products, including every variation of the famous lemon products. You can taste the Amalfitana specialties, such as the strong limoncello. There are plenty of nice bars where you sit down for a drink, eat some pastries and relax. A stroll along the sea front is another great inspiring walk. When you're tired of admiring Amalfi's charms, you can take a stroll up the valley through lemon groves and old paper mills. For people that like hikes, the steep mountainsides offer many challenging walks nearby.
Amalfi has a small beach, which tends to get very busy on summer and weekends. There are several places where you can hire beds, towels etc. and there is also a stretch of free beach. Il Saraceno Grand Hotel has its own beach just in front of the hotel. Although Amalfi is a great attraction by itself, we definitely suggest to rent a car for a day or so, or embark on an excursion to many of the great sights nearby. All within easy reach you can find Sorrento, Napels, Positano and of course Pompeii and the islands of Capri and Ischia

Probably the best part outside the view is the private beach, just in front of your hotel. Walk down and enjoy the beach service, a refreshment, espresso or an light meal at the al Fresco restaurant at the beach. If you are not a fan of salt water or sand, just on top of the beach you can find Il Saraceno’s swimming pool with some sun beds waiting for you.
