Essential info

Key facts to know before booking Amalfi holiday rentals

Finding local holiday rentals suitable for your next family trip is easy, but you need to be prepared before you set out on your adventure. Be prepared to walk when you visit Amalfi. The town is built into a cliff, so steep stairs and long winding roads are common. The roads are mostly narrow and made from cobblestone, so pedestrians are far more common than cars. If you don’t speak Italian, most locals know enough English to get by. Restaurant staff and other service workers tend to speak fluent English, so you don’t have to worry about much of a language barrier when ordering. Additionally, you don’t have to tip when you’re at a restaurant, as gratuity for the server is already included in your bill.
