Driving trip Florence - Amalfi Coast - Pompeii - Rome

Jump to last reply

We're planning rather a longer trip driving in Europe, but for this topic I'd like some input about how to approach this leg, which begins around 8 June.

After spending a week in the area of Florence, we'll be driving S. We want to see Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, relax a bit, then head out for Rome. 6 nights max for this leg of our trip.

We're struggling with going all the way to Salerno, staying there, doing day trips along the coast, or moving on for two nights to stay in another town, say Positano, moving on to Sorrento, taking a ferry to Capri, staying in Sorrento another night, then visiting Pompeii before moving on to Rome. Or, visa versa.

We're not really interested in sitting at a beach, although swimming and taking a boat ride would be great.

We don't know what is the best route to take from Florence, and where we should be planning to stay overnight w/o moving every night. Moving every 2 -3 nts would be ok.

We are one couple, and one single, all around 60. We want clean, comfortable hotels, reasonably inexpensive. We'd be looking for accommodation with parking (obviously) but could possibly make other arrangements if necessary.

I guess I'm looking for input on planning our route, recommendations for hotels, and any 'must see' sights, plus what to avoid.
