I'm doing a solo trip out to Italy in October, landing flying in/out of Rome and am planning to spend the bulk of the trip in Sorrento/Amalfi area. I'll have 12 days (arrive Mon early am, leave Sat. morning), but I'm not sure if Sorrento/Amalfi areas will all look the same after a while and if I should add in somewhere else that's a little different (or hit stuff near Rome that I've visited)?
I'm game for suggestions of local places off the tourist path but may be geographically reasonable by public transport. Also game for anything active (I'm pretty athletic) or ways to meet others.
Loosely thinking the following - does this seem reasonable?:
-2 nights - Rome (wander about, visit old favorites)
-4 nights - Sorrento (home base to explore Sorrento, day trips to Capri, Herculaneum, and/or Naples?)
-3 nights - Amalfi (explore Amalfi, Positano, somewhere else??)
-1 nights - TBD
-2 nights - Rome (if i add more time back in rome maybe maybe do a day trip to Tivoli or Ostia Antica?)
I have traveled solo quite a bit (particularly in Italy) and I speak fair amount of Italian. But It's been a while since I've gone to such a touristy place (or since I've gone anywhere actually!!) so I'm just wondering if that area will get old after 7-8 days will fly by because there is so much to do (or conversely if I cut time in Rome and add more to the coast)?
