I got very useful advice for my itinerary on the thread at https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/italy/15-day-mid-march-early-april-itinerary-suggestions-feedback-please. So my itinerary is now having 4 days at the end of March in Sorrento which I have booked at a Rick Steves recommended practical hotel in the town center in Sorrento. The idea is that Sorrento makes for a great base for day trips to other locations on AC and Capri - and if it really rains badly on a day we can go and visit Naples and do some indoor activity like a museum.
But I have also booked a room with in Positano with a view to die for (from the room's private terrace). I know folks recommend using one single base for short stays like 4 days - and recommend Sorrento if you want to go to Capri or Pompeii. But is it practical to split it to 2 nights each between Sorrento and Positano? The idea would be:
Day 1: Arrive at Sorrento (from Florence via train) - stay at that convenient hotel.
Day 2: Take a day trip (to Capri if weather is nice or to Naples if weather is not so great).
Day 3: Book a private taxi tour like the one that Rick Steves mentions in his book along the Amalfi Coast drive. On the way drop the luggage at the Positano hotel. Come back after the tour to stay at the Positano hotel.
Day 4: Explore Positano, also keep this a slow day by hanging out sometime at the hotel for relaxing. If it is raining that day, then chill in the hotel room and enjoy the view from the terrace.
Morning Day 5 - check out Positano hotel to go to Rome.
Folks who have been in that area, is the plan doable? This way we are at Sorrento for the Capri day trip and do Amalfi Coast drive/Positano with Positano as the base.
