Flying to Rome next month, then will be continuing my trip to Sorrento (as well as Amalfi Coast, Positano, Pompeii)
I'm flying from EWR to FCO on United. I've only flown internationally once before and it was on Delta which provided blankets, ear plugs, eye masks. The whole nine. I have my own travel blanket and pillow that can fit into my backpack but it takes up so much space, that I'd love to know if international flights on United (Boeing 767, to be exact) provide the same amenities - or if they at least provide blankets?? I'm always freezing on flights and definitely need one for a nine hour flight.
I've read so many posts online about the best way to get from Rome to Sorrento; one of the top suggestions is taking the train which connects in Naples (I've heard iffy stories about this, though, so I'm a little concerned), could also fly from Rome to Sorrento which is less than an hour flight, or train it from Rome to Naples, then get a private car to Sorrento. I should state that I work in Manhattan and take a train every day so I know what to expect in terms of high traffic areas, but as I will be traveling alone and I'm a bit of an anxious traveler, always paranoid of not finding the correct platform and thus missing a train. Plus it sounds like it's a commuter train which would be cramped with luggage and that doesn't seem all that comfortable to me.
I'd appreciate any advice!
