another Naples and Amalfi coast question

Jump to last reply

Arriving Naples Sept 1 around 1200. Would like to leave for Paris CDG on Sept 4 or 5.

Trying to decide how to structure our time there. We know we could spend weeks there, but this is what we have. Pompeii +/- Herculaneum is a priority, we know it's a long day but don't mind trying both in 1 day. Some relaxation time in Sorrento/Capri is also highly desirable. Would prefer for it to be more hectic upfront if possible - we will get to relax in Paris. Looking into the Campania Arte pass.

Any tips/advice on how you'd do it in our situation? No car - train, ferry only. Will try to pack lightly, but what is baggage storage like?

Possible itinerary:
Sept 1: arrive Naples, then train to SORRENTO, explore a bit.
Sept 2: Sorrento, and Capri - Blue Grotto
Sept 3: Pompeii, maybe Herculaneum if we can, back to Sorrento for the night? Or Naples?
Sept 4: Amalfi Coast back to Naples, pizza, museum - either fly out that night or early following AM

Does anyone who's done something like this have any feedback on whether they'd do it again, what to avoid, how to reroute, what pass to use, etc.?

Many thanks.
