Hi everyone,i am currently in Italy travelling for 10 weeks. I have 4 nights spare in between being in Capri and then Salerno for 7 nights and going to Taormina Sicily.i love the beach (I am Australian) and I love great food.( I don't like the hustle and bustle of cities though or places with a million and one tourists)suggestions on where I might go for those 4 nights would be appreciated.grazie Marisa 



Hi Marisa, Do you mind if beach is rocky- it is on the Amalfi Coast.  There is a family B & B Pellegrino in Praiano. Lovely place, lovely family- gourmet chef. . Then drive or bus the coast to Ravello and the Villa Cimbrone- Famous - Winston Churchill & other dignitaries stayed there in its heyday.  They have restored hotel and it is lovely. This will be on your way to Salerno. There is also the Villa Maria hotel also beautiful.  Enjoy, I just got back from France & Italy- ready to go back. 

I can confirm that Praiano is lovely. We spent a week there about a year ago and we had a great time. It has kept a village atmosphere, something difficult to find on the Costiera Amalfitana, no matter how wonderful it is. Go there, you will not be disappointed.
