Piano di Sorrento or Furore?

We are a family of 5 (2 adults,3 kids) travelling to the Amalfi region in mid September, arriving by train at Salerno. As this has been a last minute trip and we are a family we have limited options as far as accommodation goes (unless of course I want to spend $25,000!) however I have found two different B&B options, one (Villa Maresca) in Piano di Sorrento and one (Da Clotilde) in Furore.

We don't intend to have a car so am I correct in assuming that Piano di Sorrento is more central and easier to commute from with public transport than Furore?

We are intending to do day trips to Pompeii, Capri and Positano and would also like the freedom of being able to travel short distances for cafes, restaurants etc if necessary.

From what I have read, people seem to think that this area is less attractive and perhaps more touristy than that of Praiano and other places however I am hoping if we choose a good location that we will be able to move around easily, to enable us to get to other "prettier" towns.

Your advice and comments are appreciated.

To reach either destination take the train to Naples www.trenitalia.com Click on the UK flag for train times and fares, and transfer to the Naples lower basement station for the train to Sorrento and Pompeii Scavi

Thank you Nurioopta, for taking the time to provide transportation advice. Doesn't look like anyone else has an opinion....

Anyhow, we have made our decision.
