Amalfi or some place else?

Jump to last reply

I have thought long and hard and have decided that Positano is not meant to be. I have issues with lots of steps and everyone who replied to my other post about Positano advised me that this is a place where you can't avoid lots of steps.

I have now started to look at the town of Amalfi. Il Saraceno Grand Hotel. It has a pool for my husband, an elevator, sea view room with balcony-under 2000 euros for the week.

I've also looked at Priano. Hotel Margherita. Sea view room with balcony, pool, access to private beach reachable by free shuttle and boat service. This town is located between Positano and Amalfi. Price for the week-under 1400 euros. www.hotelmargherita.info

So now I have to choose between Amalfi or Priano. We will do day trips to Capri and Ravello. After our time on the AC we head to Rome for 2 weeks.

My question to you who have been to the AC which of these 2 places would be better considering I'm looking for scenic sea views and not having to go up and down hundreds of steps to get to the beach or town? I know some have suggested Sorrento but I don't think that's the right place for us. Thanks in advance for any help.
