Stay in Amalfi or Ravello? Or ??

Jump to last reply

My father and his significant other are planning to spend three nights on the Amalfi Coast in early October. While I am about to go to Italy for the third time (hooray!) I still have not been south of Rome. I know most folks suggest staying in Positano, but while they are mobile and can do some climbing/schlepping, the steepness and huge number of stairs/vertical up and down concerns them. They would prefer not to stay in Sorrento.

I've searched a bit through the threads and guide, but am not clear....between Amalfi and Ravello, is one a better base if desiring a relatively "flat" or easier to traverse town in terms of access and strolling between hotel, dinner, shops, etc...??

Thanks!!
