1 week Amalfi coast - Positano, Amalfi & Ravello. Too much? Help please!

Jump to last reply

Me and my husband are planning a trip along the amalfi coast for one week (beginning and ending in rome).
We are planning to take the train from rome to salerno. Then take the ferry:
3 nights in positano
2 nights in amalfi
2 nights in ravello
And then track to rome via Salerno.

As we do not plan to rent a car, we will be commuting between these towns via SITA buses/ferry. Is three towns as bases in a week too much. We pack light and do not mind moving often as long as the journeys in between towns are not too tedious. But will this itinerary lead us to spend too much time on the road? Even if we were to take one place (say position) as our base, wouldn't we anyways be spending a lot of time on the buses/ferry even on day trips to the other places?
Please suggest if we should stay at one place as opposed to three and if we need to add or subtract anything from this initial plan?
Thank you very much in advance!
