All, I have 4 nights on hand to spend around Naples region and at the moment i am so confused on how to go about planning my staying and doing activities and how to optimise the plan to make use of most day light time to explore the places than be travelling and juggling with luggages. So pls help me on this one.
I would reach Naples from Rome on 17th Night around 2030 hrs and i am thinking of spending the 17th and 18th Night in Naples, 19th Morning check out from the hotel and do Pompeii and Herc(if possible) enroute to Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi ? Not sure where i should base my next 2 days. I want this to be a memorable next 2 days because its my moms birthday on 20th. So check-in any of those places on 19th and do Capri and 20th and next 21st to do the coast to coast on sight seeing or SITA bus or take ferry. 21st eve i would want to travel to Florence and halt in Florence. my plan was to take the Sight seeing bus coast to coast and salerno and take the direct train from salerno to Naples and then change to florence, but i think there are no late evening trains from Salreno, is it a good idea to Stay overnight in Sareno, but then my 21st day would be doing with luggages ? Or should i do the other way round, Land in naples evening and straight to salerno for overnight stay and next day be in amalfi ? this looks not too practical :( I really really confused here. pls give me some suggestions and where i should base myself. I looked at accommodations in Sorrento on 19th to 21st june and they are really expensive or something i dont like, any suggestions here ? and is it really worth to spend a day in naples on 18th? if so, is city center a better place to be in Naples ?
I am also thinking of this below option just to save myself and my mom and bro from carrying big luggages. another option is stay 17th Night naples, do pompeii full day on 18th, Back to Naples, 19th Morning check out, store baggage at Hotel, if they provide the faciLITY, roam around Naples , collect baggage and
option 1: take the last ferry and go to Capri and halt in Capri on 20th and 21st. So i hve to do a ferry day trip from Capri untill Amalfi and back on 20th and do Capri on 21st and back to Naples on 21 eve and train to Florence.
option2 : Do Pompeii on 19th and take a private car with driver from pompii to hotel in Amalfi or any near by town and plan 20th as a day trip t0 Capri and back and 21 check out and take a train from Salerno. I think with this 20th day trip to capri from Ferry from Amalfi or Salerno (depending on the accommodation i book, this will save me another day just to do the coast as i will be anyway covering the coast in ferry while travelling to Capri and it gives me 21 a relaxing time and not running around with the bags) I think hhiring a driver from Pompeii to AC would be expensive !
