3 Nights in Amalfi Coast question

Jump to last reply

I have been kicking this around quite a bit.

I get into Rome late on a Thursday evening in August. I would have to get lucky to catch the last train to Salerno.

My new thought...is to stay in Rome on Thursday evening. Take the very early train to Naples. Then take the ferry to Capri from Naples.

My initial thought was to use Amalfi as a base to explore the AC.

My question is...Should I just stay on Capri for 3 nights and use it as my base? (I can just ferry to Positano and Amalfi to get a "look see.")

Staying on Capri would allow me to train back to Rome earlier on Monday am and still have time to spend a majority of the day in Rome before departing on Tuesday.

If Capri is a good call, any recommendations on a hotel near "beach?"

Thanks!
