Amalfi coast advice

Jump to last reply

My husband & I (active early 60's) will be visiting the Amalfi coast area for 11 nights Sept 2013. We will divide our time between 3 locations. I have already confirmed 2 but would like input on the 3rd.

Confirmed are 3 nights Capri (hotel La Minerva) and 4 nights Sorrento (Antiche Mura Hotel)). But also want to spend 4 nights actually on the Amalfi coast - possibly Ravello or Positano. I know Ravello isn't the ideal base for touring but since we plan to do most of our touring (Pompeii, etc) from Sorrento that isn't an issue for us. Some people love Positano and others say it is overrun with tourists and shopping. We're looking for a beautiful spot to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy interesting walks and have great food. We are hikers and can manage steps and steep terrain but not looking to overtax ourselves on vacation. Water views are important but we're not interested in spending time on the beach or swimming. We expect to enjoy boating while on Capri. The 4 undecided days will be at the beginning of our trip. Given our itinerary would you recommend starting in Ravello, Positano or someplace else on the coast?
