I will be visiting the Sorrento/Amalfi Coast area starting June 27. We are staying four nights and have nearly four days to explore the area. Does anyone have any suggestions about what the best base is--Sorrento or one of the Amalfi Coast towns? We would like to go to Capri and Pompeii at a mimimum and visit some of the towns on the south shore.
I've heard that Sorrento is the better base for a short time period because it's near the train and the ferries to Capri. If we chose Sorrento, is it convenient to stay somewhere outside of town, such as Massalubrense or Nerano or will that involve some major traveling?
