POSITANO - On a budget - my top ten tips
Yes - it is possible
Adjust your expectations 'Budget' in Positano means paying around 180 euro per night. If that is too expensive, try the villages of Nocelle and Montepertuso above Positano - the local bus runs twice an hour or you can use the stairs. It’s half the price of Positano. You can get a room in a B&B from around 75 euro per night. Some even have stunning views. Ensure your place has a fridge or stay in an apartment. Even cheaper are the villages above Amalfi.
