To climb heavenwards it is also possible to use the steps: those of the mythical ''Scalinatella" which, from Punta Reginella lead to the high part of Positano, one of the jem of the Amalfi coast. Two flights and here you are in a wonderful paradise called Hotel Casa Albertina. On entering through the grandiose entrance door, go onto one of the many terraces and enjoy the breathtaking view: below you will see the famous "Spiaggia delle Sirene", and in front, the suggestive ridge of Praiano, while higher still, climbs the "Sentiero degli Dei" where the local christians took refuge during the cruel Saracen invasions.
As always, the delightful Cinque family, the owners, will be at hand to ensure your total comfort during this stay in this wonderful hotel set in the mountains perched over the sea. lf you really want to "take in the history" why not ask for the room which at one time, when it was still a typical house of Positano before being transformed into a hotel, used to be rented by Luigi Pirandello who used to come several times a year to relax in this haven of peace and silence.
The Casa Albertina hotel will guarantee you a delightful holíday in setting of absolute calm and peace. It also provides a complete service for the organization of a host of excursions: it is also possible to hire cars either with or without driver, which will be consigned direct to your hotel, both for travelling to and from the airport and the railway station of Naples, and for visits to the piaces such as Amalfi, Ravello, Sorrento, Pompei, Ercolano and Paestum. Car-park with special arrangement with car delivered directly to the hotel. Motor-boats are also available for those wishing to reach Capri or the other splendid isles of the most fabulous gulf in the world.
There are 20 rooms all super-equipped and perfectly furnished, complete with bathroom, private terrace, telephone, air-conditioning, mini-bar and some rooms also boast relaxing hydromassage baths.
The hotel also has a lift, two large solariumterraces, for soaking up the wonderful Positano sun during the spring and summer seasons. It is also fully central heated to ensure the warmest of welcomes during the rest of the year.
The menu is both varied and mouth-watering, offering a host of tasty dishes, many being based on the exquisite local "azzurro" (blue) fish: the Casa Albertina Hotel in fact offers the best of traditional Italian cuisine together with truly impeccable service.
