Amalfi vs Sorrento vs Positano in June

Jump to last reply

Ok, I have spent hours on Fodors reading about pros/cons of staying/basing lodging in Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano and am still confused. So hopefuly if I explain my particular situation, someone might be able to closely relate and have close experience.

I will be travelling with my 62 year old mother and my 12 year old daughter. We have 4 nights in the area. Our interests are Capri, Mount Vesuvious/Pompeii, and Amalfi coast area. (From here we head to Rome).

The stumper: where do we base our lodging? Many posts state Sorrento (Until now, I was sure I was staying in Sorrento), followed by Amalfi & Positano. Which is truly the most convenient for what we want to do-all done by public transportation?

My one idea is if the vote is for Sorrento-to hire a private driver for a day to take us to Amalfi. (If this does become the case, does anyone have experience with a company in the area)?

Lodging interests: Hotel, B & B, apartment, doesn't matter. Views are important, and I prefer unique or "breathtaking" if you will. Max budge roughly, $200 per night. However, under that is always a bonus!!!

Thank you in advance for all your expert advice!
