Sorrento, Amalfi or Positano for honeymoon?

Am hoping to go to the Amalfi coast next June for our honeymoon. I've heard Sorrento is very touristy and full of brit bars etc.

Where would you recommend?

Sorrento to be in the center of it all. Positano is very nice and romantic but a little bit more difficult to go around. Ravello is further south but has stunning views very nice. I would pick Sorrento because it would be easier to explore the rest of the coast. Also is closer to Pompeii if you plan on going.

We just got back from our honeymoon. We based ourselves in Sorrento and we absolutely loved it. We thought Sorrento would simply be a "base" but then we would go on day trips to other cities on the Coast and Capri, only to find ourselves yearning to get back to "our town."

Hello, all 3 are very attractive, it depends what you are looking for, and whats important to you. Yes, Sorrento is a busy tourist town, lots of shops selling souvenirs, cafes, full of tourists including Italians on holiday; but it is very charming, lots of very good quality hotels and a good base for sightseeing. From the harbour there, you can get a boat to Capri, and the train will take you to Pompeii. ....Amalfi and Positano are somewhat less busy, I think, quieter, both with beaches, but its a bit more difficult going sightseeing from them. Both are very attractive, Positano is a bit of a jet-set resort that attracts many celebrities!
