36 hours on the Amalfi Coast – New York Times

Base yourself in Amalfi for easy access to transport (bus and boat) and a central location on the coast.

The newly renovated bed-and-breakfast DieciSedici (Piazza Municipio 10, Amalfi; diecisedici.com; from 100 euros about $113) opened last year with six stylish rooms featuring mosaic floors, chandeliers and modish furnishings on a quiet piazza in the historic center.
