... parents to Da Franco’s- a favorite pizza place of the students in my program. It also happened to be Mardi Gras, so we watched from the town square as children dressed up like it was Halloween and had quite the celebration, throwing confetti and spraying silly string every which way. We finished this evening at Ristorante Tasso with Tsu as our guest of honor- it was of course delicious.

... excited for shopping.... as opposed to grateful to be alive and shaking like a leaf, recovering what could have been a disaster, and almost was, on more than one occasion. Yes.... indeed... take the boat service offered. Another note to remember for our future returns is: you can get from Amalfi to Salerno, Sorrento, Capri, and Ischia. From the stoppage in Sorrento, you can further your destination to Naples, etc. . A very efficient way to be totally mobile, quickly, in this area. ...
We caught an early morning taxi to the bus station to catch the Marozzi bus to Amalfi. It was meant to be a 5 hour ride, that drove through Naples and Sorrento where we had to get off and get on a "mini bus" which appeared to be just as high but a little shorter in length. The drive from Sorrento was incredibly entertaining. It was an overcast day and was raining off and on, and the bus driver said that due to the weather less people would be going to Isle of Capri ...
... our time in Amalfi by the sea.
The last stop on our tour was a town called Ravello which is high up on the mountains unlike the other towns we had seen that say. This was just a flying visit. We had the opportunity to go and see some gardens but Niomi and myself wasn't too fussed so we relaxed in the shade and enjoyed the view for a little bit before browsing around some souvenir shops and topping up on our water.
It was really nice and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel la Bussola Amalfi
This was our second visit to Amalfi. After looking at the website for the hotel, we were looking forward to our stay. Our reception to the hotel was anything but warm. The room was lovely with a beautiful view of the Amalfi coast. We were with a group of 30. Our service at dinner was rude and rushed. The food was nothing to return for. We had reservations for 3 nights. On the second evening we were given a written notice from the hotel to vacate our room after breakfast the next morning. The hotel would assist in changing our room or move us to another hotel. Our group decided it would be better to leave. Needless to say, we will never return to this hotel.
Location, Location, Location!
We stayed at the La Bussola Hotel for a week in June 2004 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The room was clean and pleasant, and it overlooked the harbor. The hotel is an easy walk to buses and ferries, as well as the town center. You don't need a car here, as you can easily get to Positano, Sorrento, etc., by ferry or bus. They apparently don't put up the beach umbrellas and chairs on the bathing dock until mid-June, but there is a lovely deck upstairs overlooking the harbor with lounge chairs. It's a lovely place, and we plan to return.
This location is supurb.
A three minute walk to town and the sea at your doorstep. We had a room with the boardwalk and beach. There is air-conditioning, but most nights there is a wonderful breeze from the sea. We are planning a return trip next year.
Excellent location nearby shopping, restaurants, cafes, busses, ferries, etc.! The hotel is spacious and very clean. Breathtaking view from balconies. The staff is very professional and friendly. The only two disadvantages: there was no air-conditioning and it can get a bit noisy in the evening. Although we stayed there in June and we did not really need the air-conditioning. Despite the disadvantages, we enjoyed our visit and would stay at the Bussola again.
Well-positioned, only a few steps away from the seashore, near the renowned 11th century cathedral, the Hotel La Bussola is endowed with panoramic balconies and refined tapestries and furniture, the guest will benefit and enjoy the fresh and Mediterranean hospitality
Great Hotel - a bit noisy
Stayed at La Bussola in May 03. The hotel is easily accessible right on the harbour in Amalfi, a few minutes walk to the boat quay and the church. There is an underground car park which is very useful as visitor parking is limited in Amalfi. The hotel is large, bright and clean, staff are friendly. Our room was spacious and beautifuly designed with majorica floor tiles and a balcony over looking the sea.
My only qualm was the noise from the road at night (scooters, lorries) and we were woken by the high speed ferries arriving in the harbour most mornings. On the whole, I would go back to the Bussola.
Hotel La Bussola had a great location..just about a 3 minute walk to the main shopping and restaurant area. The hotel was very nice and provided breakfast in the main dining room. The room was simple and had a balcony. My only complaint would be that there was no air conditioning which was definitely important in July! Otherwise, I would highly suggest this hotel for the money!
Last minute arrival
We were in Italy for the first time and on our Honeymoon. We had read about the Amalfi Coast and wanted to see it. Not really understanding the hotels in the area we had no idea were to stay. It was late at night and came on the hotel La Bussola. They had a room and it was great. Nothing fancy but the view and the sounds from the harbor were so romantic. I can't wait to go back and stay again and relive our honeymoon. We had no aggenda then and won't this time either.
