Amalfi Coast Apartment in October -- mobility an issue

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are thinking of joining in with two other 60-something couples on an apartment rental for a week in early October, somewhere between Sorrento and Atrani. We have never been to this region. We'd like to visit Capri, Pompeii or Ercolano, take a boat ride or two, and some other daytrips around the area, and of course enjoy the local food and drink.

Although Positano looks charming, we think Amalfi Town may be more practical, as one of the women has knee and hip problems that cause her a mobility issue. When we see a location with "200 stairs" or even "80 short steps," we fear that she may not be able to sustain this over the course of a week.

As we go through the planning process, it would be wonderful to hear from some who are familiar with the AC and could advise on the logistics.
In particular: What area or town would be best for us to concentrate on? Will a car be necessary, or is it possible to locate near bus stops? Can anyone recommend apartments with 3 bedrooms, 2+ baths that would provide us with a convenient base for the week?

Thank you.
