I know that this is probably an age old question but please bear with me...!
I have read that Sorrento has the better transport links than Amalfi to enable you to travel to the surrounding sights (Capri, Naples, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast tour etc) . However, Amalfi sounds a bit more of an authentic town and less commercial than Sorrento
This being the case, my question is... is the accessibility of Sorrento significant enough to choose it over the more picturesque Amalfi? And if not, how much more difficult are trips to the sights mentioned above from Amalfi?
Thanks as ever!
