4 days in Sorrento, 4 days in Rome--expert advice needed!

Jump to last reply

Ok, 4 U.S. travelers--Husband, wife, daughter (23), son (16) will be in Italy this summer--arriving Aug. 10, departing Aug. 18. (I know, we tried but we couldn't identify a hotter, more crowded time to visit :) )

On arrival day (Aug. 10) we fly into Rome and then will proceed by combination of train and private car (from Naples train station) to Sorrento. We arrive in Rome at 8:30, so all things considered I'm guestimating a mid- to late-afternoon arrival in Sorrento for the first of 4 nights there.

So, how best do we use Sorrento time? Pompeii and Vesuvius are on our list, as is the Amalfi Coast and possibly Capri. Can all 3 of those things be achieved? Best method(s)? Timing?
Also, we have conditionally booked Maison Tofani and Palazzo Montefusco, but am concerned we are missing a "better" option?

TRANSITION DAY TO ROME IS FRIDAY, AUG. 14--I assume we will arrive in Rome early afternoon and want to check into hotel (the Independent) near the Termini. This will be the first of 4 nights. On our priority list are the obvious: Colosseum, Forum, St. Peter's Basillica and Vatican Museums, as well as Spanish Steps. As well as the less obvious and not as time consuming (even very quick) stops to see where Paul was imprisoned and to visit the Scala Santa (Holy Stairs).

I have come to discover that I've really put us behind the 8-ball as it relates to Vatican-related activities due to the Aug. 15 (Saturday) holiday closing and Sunday closing--which I understand will make Friday and Monday EXTRA CROWDED. On the bright side, we have secured Scavi tour reservations for Monday at 9:15. This holds the advantage of getting into the Basillica without waiting in line. But on the flip side, it upends any notions of getting in line for the Vatican museums super early to avoid the massive lines. This, from my understanding, will make the Sistine Chapel more like the Sardine Chapel. Even if I were fortunate to book an afternoon guided tour, I would assume the crowds will be massively tough to negotiate. Is there ANY alternative based on my Friday afternoon arrival and Monday Scavi tour that would make the Vatican museum experience less of an ordeal and more enjoyable? Again, I know I could have picked a better time of year--but with family considerations we had no other option. So I'm guessing I just need to suck it up?

Please share your thoughts for planning my Sorrento and/or Rome touring time. Thanks in advance for your wisdom and patience with a rookie traveler and my associated cluelessness.

Thanks!
