I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
... from the crater is analysed, various crater lines from lava ash deposits and much more but I can't remember!!! The views from up there were absolutely breathtaking. We walked further around to actually see the steam coming from the side of the volcano before making our way back down to the four wheel drive bus. I am soo gald we did this tour and I am also glad I did not know what was involved as I probably wouldn't have gone because of the steep climb to the top. We ...
... steps into the " Meditaranian sea" just amazing. The water is cold but exhilarating .. Pepe assures us there are no sharks lol .. Just great swimming and snorkeling. We catch a few sun rays then head back to the hotel for afternoon drinks and nibbles. Not sure how I will adjust when I get home lol.

... spot a nice one, we see a hotel that looks connected with the beach, go to ask them if we can use the beach. They tell us they don't usually allow access, we offered to pay, still no was the answer. He tells us there is a way down, but he doesn't recommend using the steps, too dangerous. At a roadside cafe, we ask the girl about the steps, and she says go ahead, people go down all the time. You have to climb over the guardrail to start, and it ...

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.
