Any suggestions appreciated.

Take train from Florence to Naples and arrange a car service from there to Sorrento.

I would expect a car service from Florence to Sorrento for 7 plus bags would likely run in the 1500-2000 euro range. A driver would have close to a 12 hr driving day or have to overnight somewhere, so lots of expense.

A couple of services that have been suggested on this forum ( no personal experience)

Italo sells a combination train + coach to Sorrento. High speed train to Napoli Afragola, and coach from there. Avoids having to take the crowded Circumvesuviana, and will be both faster and cheaper than a car with driver.

It is what I would do.

I agree that catching the train to Naples then having a driver pick you up is the most sensible and no doubt the quickest and cheapest way to travel.

We caught the train from Rome and were picked up by Rainbow Limos, so I do have personal experience.

The company was exceptional and I couldn't recommend them more highly.

We also used them for a day tour along the Amalfi Coast and our return transfer to Naples.

I forgot to mention in my reply above that during our transfer to Sorrento, we arranged for a three hour stop at Pompeii. That gave us time to view the site and the driver remained in the car with our luggage.
