Amalfi Coast - Tuscany

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip next May for 2 weeks, split half way between Naples-Sorrento-Amalfi Coast and Southern Tuscany (renting a villa near Montipulciano for a week). Do you think the following is a good plan? (We are older folks, like exploring on foot everywhere as well as good comfort and great scenery. Not too die-hard travelers, but very adventurous.)

Fly into Naples. 2 nights in Naples. Train to Sorrento, 3 nights in Sorrento. (Visit Pompeii en-route to Sorrento. Day trip to Capri from Sorrento), But to Amalfi Coast, staying 2 nights in Positano or Amalfi Town or Ravello?? (Haven't decided on where yet!) Bus or Boat to Salerno, pick up car rental, drive to Tuscany villa for a week, and relax/visit there. Fly out of Florence.

Questions:

1. Is this a good plan? If not, which place will you add/subtract? (Shall I make Naples 3 nights, Sorrento 2 nights, for example?)
2. If I have 8 nights for the first part, shall I make it 3 nights in Naples or 3 nights in Amalfi Coast?
3. Which town to stay along the coast after Sorrento?? I'm leaning toward Positano for now.
4. Flight out of Florence leaves at 7 a.m. Drive from Tuscany villa to airport is about 75 minutes. I suspect at that time in the morning, the drive should be a zip. Is that right? Also, is car-rental drop-off (Hertz rental office is only open at 8:30, so there'll be key-drop box) easy, and right at the terminal?

Any information, comment, suggestion would be greatly appreciated! -HH
