Hi, we are travelling to Italy next June, spending 3 nights in Rome and then getting the train down to somewhere on the Amalfi Coast or Sorento. We shall be staying for 5 nights and flying out of Naples airport back to the UK. Our primary reason for visiting is to show our 14 year old son Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri and any other historical sites. We also want to be near the water but within walking distance of restaurants. My son is desperate to try authentic pizza in Naples! I've spent hours reading postings on Tripadvisor and still can't decide whether it would be best to be based in Sorrento or Positano (or anywhere else anyone can recommend!). As we shall be out for most of the day, we need a base where we can chill out, hopefully enjoy the beautiful views and still be able to walk to decent taverna/restaurants. If anyone has done a similar trip, or can give any advice on where to stay, I'd be really grateful. We have no problems hiring a car from the airport, but if it's easier to take public transport then that will need to be a consideration too when deciding where to stay.
Many, many thanks.
