First Italian trip advice needed, please!

Jump to last reply

My family of four (hubby & children, ages 10 & 13) are traveling to Italy this early June. Flying direct from NC to Rome. Staying there 4 nights, heading to Sorrento for 4 nights, then back to Rome for a final night & flying out the next day. A few questions:

1) what's the best way to get from Rome to Sorrento? I'm thinking train to Naples, then either ferry or driver to Sorrento. Thoughts?

2) if we chose to rent a car, is the drive/traffic between Rome & Sorrento daunting?

3) once in Sorrento, what's the best way to get to Positano & rest of Amalfi Coast (assuming we don't rent a car)?

4) any specific suggestions of what to do while in Sorrento & Rome to experience the culture outside of typical "must-sees"?

5) advise on where to stay during last night in Rome somewhat close to airport?

Thank you!!
