13 Day Italy Itinerary - Feedback and Suggestions Please

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I will be going to Italy at the beginning of September for 13 days before heading to Paris to fly home. Here is what we have at the moment:

September 5 - Arrive in Rome by plane at 8am. Day in Rome
September 6 - Day in Rome
September 7 - Day in Rome
September 8 - Early morning fast train to Naples, arriving in Naples around 845, switch trains right away towards Sorrento. Get off at ruins and spend afternoon. What is better Pompeii or Herculaneum? And is it at all possible to see both in 1 day and still make it to Sorrento? Also, big travel backpacks can be stored at the ruins while exploring right?
September 9 - Day trip to Capri
September 10 - Take SITA bus to Amalfi and Ravello (Grotto dello Smeraldo in Amalfi and Villa Rufolo in Ravello)
September 11 - Take ferry to Positano for 1/2 day and spend half day in Sorrento and visit Sant'agata Sui Due Golfi
September 12 - Early morning train from Sorrento to Naples and on to Florence. Afternoon in Lucca and Pisa
September 13 - Day trip (tour) to Cinque Terre
September 14 - Day trip (tour) to Siena/Chianti
September 15 - Day in Florence
September 16 - Train to Venice. Day in Venice
September 17 - Day in Venice (night train to Paris)

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated for additions/subtractions, tour companies, little details, restaurants, places to see and avoid, off the beaten track stuff, and accommodations.

We are thinking of either Funny Palace, Hostel Alessandro Palace, or Hostel des Artistes for Rome and either Florida hostel or Seven hostel in Sorrento. Any good/bad things to say about any of these? Haven't got to Florence or Venice accommodations yet.

Thank you in advance
