Help with Itinerary for Amalfi Coast, Ischia and Capri, Italy

Jump to last reply

Ok my eyes are blurring over from reading all the posts. Sometimes I think I get more confused! But we are narrowing down our wish list and it now is time to post and ask for help.

Travelers will be me and hubby in our 60's, love hiking (waiting on my Sunflower Hiking book) and some sightseeing. Usually rent an apartment when we travel and do self-guided hikes BUT this time we will be hiking on our own and probably not renting because we will not be staying long enough in one place. So here goes:

WE will not have a CAR

Tentative Itinerary

Sorrento: 3 nights

Day 1: Arrive in the afternoon. Explore town SLEEP.
Day 2: Early start to Pompeii ??? Can we Hike Vesuvius in the same day???
Day 3: Do a hike and more town exploring the area.

Ischi: 3 nights

Day 4: Take furry or boat to Ischia get situated go to Poseidon Gardens or Negombo.
Day 5: Hike Monte Epomeo. Explore Island
Day 6: Wine country

Capri: 1 night
Day 7: Take boat to Capri from Ischia. Explore Capri.

Amalfi: 3 nights
(decided on Amalfi because many of the hikes start from here)
Day 8,9,10 hike around Amalfi

Rome: 2 nights
Day 11: arrive Rome
Day 12: see some sights

Day 13: fly home

NONE of this is written in stone. It is just a rough outline.



Arriving from Philadelphia in ROME at 8:45am on Oct 1 and leaving from Rome on OCT 13

Questions???
Best way to get down to the the area from Rome. I priced a driver and it was 400 euros...too much. Which train is best? Where do we get it from airport. Any tips will help.Don't really want to do a bus because of luggage

First dilemma:
Do we go right to Ischia or got to Sorrento from airport. I know it will be a long day for both but I think getting to Ischia after flying all night might be a little too much.

Major Questions:
Best way to get to Sorrento from Rome?
Best way to get back to Rome from Amalfi:

Suggestions on places to stay in Ischia --should we stay around Forio or Ischia Ponte??

How about Sorrento, Capri and Amalfi any good suggestions on lodging?

I feel like we are moving around a lot but everyone keeps saying you have to stay overnight in Capri. Or else I would have done this as a day trip from Sorrento or Ischia. Any input??

Hey, thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions.
