Praiano is cheaper, but fairly isolated with minimal nightlife. If that doesn't bother you, stay there. Otherwise try to find reasonable accommodations in Positano.

I have been to both. Both have their pros & cons (mostly pros).

What are you looking for?

What are your priorities?

Details. Details. Please.

Hello! Thanks very much for replies, I have since been researching and opted for Praiano! I will let you know how I get on!!

bardo1, my priorities were balanced between the 2 places, but in the end, the more local/less touristy option won! I will take the bus to some surrounding places on days that I feel I need to be somewhere a little more lively!

What were your pros cons for Praiano by the way? Any tips for a first timer! ;-)

Praiano has no real center, and rather poor transport options. Access to the beaches require a lot of steps. Bus schedules will be limited in May. Food choices also very limited.

I love Praiano, but I was there with15 relatives. We stayed at the tromanto d'doro and ate breakfast and dinner there. The food was great and the view fabulous. There is a large roof top pool. It is easy to get around via bus, but it is sleepy at night. I was pleased with our decision. The walk to the beach was very fine.. Just walk slowly going up and have a drink at the top. There are restaurants there.

Thanks guys for your advice
I don't mind steps as I'm quite fit and like to keep active!

I try to eat very wealthily too, and wondered if anyone can recommend any restaurants in that area?

Thanks again!!! I can't wait! ;-)
