... opinion though, the two sites are too different to truly compare them. Cinque Terre is a more secluded section of coast and has the charm of the 5 cities closely linked by train or ferry. The Amalfi region is grander in every since of the word. The coast was more terrific, the cities were larger, the shopping was better and there were a lot more tourists. I enjoyed the Amalfi Coast more, but if you're looking for a quieter, more peaceful and romantic vacation, I think ...
... of being taken advantage of by taxi drivers, and once again enter Franko the Mafioso cab driver from hell who ignored our request to go direct to the port. After circling the same piazzo twice, he finally decided to head to the port - 20 Euros later. Thankfully we were able to catch a noon ferry dropping us in Napoli at 12:40pm with plenty of time to catch our next connection. Napoli was gross, hot and smelly! There ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mami Camilla Sant'Agnello
Mami Camilla was a wondeful place to stay, the rooms were clean and bright. Although, not too cenrtal its a nice walk into town. And as for the food...fantastic! Would definately recommend to anyone planning a visit.
My sister and I spent a week (Sept 19-25) at Mami Camilla, where we had a wonderful time. We took the Italian language classes in the morning and went to the cooking classes in the evening.
When we first arrived at the Mami Camilla, we were greeted by Giuseppe, who told us that our reservation had been "upgraded". When I asked about this "upgrade", he told us that we would be staying at a completely different hotel nearby.
We love Mami!
We loved our stay here! The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. You can sit until late at the tables where you eat the dinner that Mami cooks, and enjoy chatting with the other guests. The grounds are very nice too, and you can wander and feed the horses. The rooms are also nice.
Our only complaints were:
1) It was not easy to find. We recommend you take a cab from the train station if you arrive by train. We walked by it several times and missed the small sign.
2) Their rooster woke us up all night long the first night (starting at 4am). By the second night we were more used to it (and very tired), but it was still crowing away.
Loved Loved Loved
I stayed at Mami Camillas earlier this month and it was by far the best place I stayed in all of Italy. The minute I walked in the door I was welcomed with open arms. Giuseppe and the family are so kind. They are unbeleivably accomadating and I cant thank them enough. Anything I needed or asked for they were right there to assist me. They made my trip to Italy a superb one. When they say they take you in and make you feel like part of the family they do just that. I will defnitley return to Italy again and when I do I will stay in no other place but Mami Camillas. I loved loved loved it there.
Italy with a personal touch
We spent a week at Mami Camilla in late January 2004, participated in three days of the cooking school, and made visits to a local artisan cheese factory, a vintner who produced the table wine and side trips to Pompei, Capri and the Amalfi coast. Our hosts assisted us with our travel plans. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the evening meals served family style, the food was superb, the Longo family welcoming and our fellow guests delightful. The week we attended the cooking school fellow students were amateur cooks doing the short course. A culinary school graduate arrived as we left to do the more serious 2 month course.
