Hotel Buca di Bacco, Positano

History...Buca di Bacco, a fascinating and curious name rich in tradition and with a story behind it. Literally "Buca" means tavern or cellar and "Bacco" is the god of wine Dyonissus or Bacchus of Greek mythology.

The story begins in the early 1900s, when a group of artists and intellectuals, in that period frequent visitors to Positano, gave this name to the cellar of a restaurant at the time used as a romantic and exclusive dance night club.

The Buca di Bacco today looks very different from what it did at the beginning of the century. The Hotel to which the old dance club gave origin, offers today modern facilities and fine service, always keeping up with the changing times.

That which has never changed over the years is the passion and care that passed on from father to son, constantly creating that atmosphere of warm welcome and hospitality so loved by our guests over time.


The hotel is located in the middle of the main beach of Positano in an area free from vehicular traffic, is reachable only on foot after covering a short stretch of road that separates it from road vehicles and car parks.

The furniture of the hotel is classic and simple, designed to offer better comfort to our guests and is embellished by architectural elements that resemble the typical architecture of the Amalfi Coast.
