Eternal debate - Where to stay on the Amalfi Coast?

Jump to last reply

Apologies at the outset - recurring question, I know! Please help decide where to stay at the Amalfi for 3-4 nights for an active family of four in June/July. We won't have a car.

Itinerary for AC:
Naples - 2/3N
AC - 3/4N (via private transfer)
Bus (or ferry) to Salerno and train to Rome (more questions on that later!)

Naples - 2/3N as base to explore Pompeii/Vesuvius/Herculaneum for a full day. Plus, catacombs, two museums and pizzas.

AC - undecided between Positano/Amalfi/Atrani/Prairno/Maoiri for 3-4 nights. Happy to do apartment/villa or hotel. Would like to keep costs around 200/250E a night.

Planning to hike/walk/explore the Walk of the Gods, Valley of the Mills plus any other, eat well, soak in the views and relax with a ferry ride or two thrown in (not Capri, though)

I don't mind stairs but steep stairs for a good meal after a day of hiking is avoidable. So, leaning towards Amalfi. But increasingly feel that Prairno or Atrani or Maoiri look promising in terms of the walks/views, costs and "far from the madding crowds" before we hit Rome/Florence/Venice.

Started late on the planning and beginning to panic - please help!

TIA
