Sorrento is actually not on the Amalfi Coast, but close by. Therefore much depends on if you want to visit the Amalfi Coast only or also other destinations.

I would say, Sorrento has the best nightlife and shopping, Positano for beauty, Amalfi for relaxation, and the food's good everywhere. Most people's budgets and availability of hotels determines where they stay. August will be very busy and the hotels sell out fast.




My photo album shows some of the area.

I think I would also say Sorrento and just do day trip's via ferry to the other area's. The one big problem your going to have is finding a place to stay within your budget. Most places tend to be fully booked by now. Don't wait to long.

I think you are going to have to take what you can get at this late date far as lodging.
