Help with touring Sorrento area

Jump to last reply

We leave for Sorrento in 3 weeks and much of our time is not yet planned out. We have one day planned with a private driver to take us to the Amalfi Drive, Poisitano and Ravello for a day. I would like to see Capre and Annacapri - but wondering if it would be too taxing to do on our own. I am 59 and have arthriitis....cannot walk for long distances....I'll be travelling with my 2 kids who are in their 30's. (They have agreed to go easy on me!! lol!) When I see what the ferry costs and then buses or taxis (for all 3 of us) - it almost seems just as cheap to take a tour right out of Sorrento or hire a driver for the day. Will I be dissappointed and feel rushed on ta our out of Sorrento that takes us to Capri? Is it very taxing to do on your own?

Also - any opinions about the red open-air on/off bus that runs through Sorrento?
Is there time to stop and see a few stops and catch the next one? How frequently do they run? This seems like it might be a good way to see some of the neighboring towns without needing to drive there. (We will not have a car).

What about a day trip to Pomepii? Is it fairly easy from Sorrento by train? How long is the walk from the train station into the Pompeii site? Are there taxis available there?

Thanks if you can help!!
