The Amalfi coast is stunning and Amalfi is a superb place to situate yourself as it is lovely, not too overrun with tourists and possess all the links (buses and ferries) you need to get to other villages, Pompei and Capri. The coastal towns are beautifully tucked into the nooks between hills and rise up the cliffs from the sea, therefore the terrain is all about stairs. The Residenza del Duca is located near the main square of Amalfi town, up some stairs (don't let that deter you, there are people who will help) and offers a charming and helpful staff. The hotel is small and very pretty and beautifully updated. The owner and his son and daughter are gracious and accommodating. The service is excellent.
I recommend walking to gorgeous Ravello which is up from the next town east, Atrani, the place of departure. At least a day trip to the island of Capri, and Positano should be on your itinerary. There are many opportunities for hiking to nearby villages and specific well worn hikes like the breathtaking Path of the Gods hike between Praino and Positano. Also, don't miss the Duomo in Amalfi. Go inside as the convent, chapel and crypt are at least if not more interesting than the cathedral itself. Lastly, go behind the obvious in Amalfi (and other towns). Explore the passageways and staircases that lace around behind the main thoroughfares...that's where the local life and the best restaurants are. A trip to Salerno and Pompei are also recommended.
