My fiancé and I are travelling to the Amalfi Coast as part of our honeymoon next June. We arrive in Rome and then have five or six days somewhere on the Amalfi Coast before we hire a car and drive north to Como.
I have lots of questions!
Firstly, where to stay? We have been recommended Praiano, as we would like somewhere a little quieter, but still with easy access to other towns. We are looking for good food and friendly service, with views and swimming. Being our honeymoon, we want something special, but as we are doing a round the world trip we cannot afford more than 100-150 euro/night.
Is Praiano a good choice? I would be interested if people thought that Ravello would be nicer for the same price? Or if it would be much better to be in a bigger town like Positano? And which hotels would you recommend in our price range?
Secondly, what to do? We may only have four full days, and knowing my fiancé at least one of these will just be a chill out day by the pool/beach! But I would like to do some sightseeing, what would you recommend as priorities, keeping in mind that we will most likely be staying in Praiano? I would love to go to Pompeii, is this too far? I am also trying to choose between Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Ravello or Amalfi as day trips...
Many thanks to you all in advance! We are very excited about our honeymoon :)
