IS THERE FERRIES or BOATS RUNNING FROM SALERNO IN THE WINTER?? (December 26, 27, 28). I looked everywhere on the net but it is very difficult to find info. Does anyone know for sure? If there are some, where do they go?, cost, etc. please.
We plan to take a train from Rome on December the 26th (also could not find info if they are running on 26 Dec? as I understand it's a public holiday) directly to Salerno avoiding Naples as it's a high crime area.
Then book into a hotel near Salerno's station and do the following:
26 Dec - take a ferry to Capri, the little train up the hill, explore, and back before dark.
27 Dec - take the SITA bus from Salerno to Amalfi (1 hour), and then there a local bus? up the hill.
28 Dec - maybe visit Sorrento for the day? - but how to get there via a scenic route that's affordable?
We really wanted to visit Naples it has been my dream for years after I saw how beautiful it is in movies, but now realize it is too risky to go there, unless you book a private tour for 300 Euros per person, which is obviously only for the very rich. It seems that there are no other bus tours for example, in December, a pity that the only tours are with this expensive company in a Mercedes that over dominate the whole internet with their aggressive advertising. (I do think there is a Hop-on/off bus running in Sorrento during the winter?).
Any info on visiting the area in December will be appreciated especially helping us to see scenic routes; finding a good place to eat real pizza, and enjoying the colourful Italian culture. Thanks, Dave, Canada.
