visiting Amalfi Coast in September

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling (2 couples in their sixties) from Munich to Sicily, in mid September, and would like to stop for 4-5 days in the Costiera Amalfitana (Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, etc..). I need your help to make some decisions on this itinerary. Our intention, so far, is not to use a car and utilize any public transportation available:
- where should we take the train to and how to visit Pompei? Is it advisable to stay the night in the vicinity of Pompei or go directly to Sorrento?
-stay one (or two) nights in Sorrento? On the day of arrival, would we have enough time left to visit Capri?
-next day, move to Amalfi for another 2-3 days. Go by bus, ferry, or..? What could we do the rest of the day?
-from Amalfi, bus to Ravello and then walk down to Minori or Amalfi? Is this a good use of our short time?
-from Amalfi, ferry to Positano. Is it worth it to try and see Praiano, Cetara, etc.? How?
-finally, we would leave for the Aeolian Islands. From where?
I would much appreciate suggestions and critiques on where to stay, what to see and do, how to move around, and where to eat (especially seafood) with the lowest budget possible.
Thank you in advance -gA
