Naples Italy as base for coast?

Jump to last reply

I think I am making my long held dream of exploring Capri and the Amalfi coast the beginning of May. Last summer my friend and I were on the move in Tuscany and it worked but this time I'd like to avoid packing/unpacking and taking luggage on ferries or buses to spend nights in different towns. So i was thinking of Naples as a base- one of the very nice seafront hotels, and taking the hydrofoil or ferry to Capr, to Positano, to Amalfi. Does this sound like a good idea? By booking air and hotel together we will save significantly. I took the hydrofoil from Naples to Capri in 1977 but have no memory of how long. Can we get a hydrofoil or ferry to these places pretty quickly - have enough time to explore the towns and get back to Naples?
We are considering the Royal Continental hotel or possibly Parkers.
Although we will see some sights in Naples itself, we dont' want to be in the middle of the gritty city.
