I'm trying to decide how to spend 4 nights/5 days in the Amalfi coast region. Please take my poll and help!
Positano was our first choice, but I kid you not, it is all booked up! The only hotels left are more than we wanted to pay.
Praiano is close to Positano, looks similar, and there's a couple of nice places available in our price range. Pros: it's gorgeous and more authentic. Cons: it's further away from the main attractions, and everything is up a big hill so we'd have to rely on the buses to walk around.
Sorrento has a TON of lodging options in our price range. But from what I've heard, it's super touristy. Which has it's perks - pretty much everyone speaks English, it's very easy to get around, etc. But it's also a bigger city, more crowded, and less authentic.
And of course the last option is to do both - 2 nights in Sorrento AND 2 nights in Praiano. Pro: get the best of both worlds. Con: we'd lose some precious Italy checking in/out of hotels.
