How long to stay in Campania? How long to keep a car?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are renting a car in Rome on Saturday and the following Saturday, we are driving back to Rome. This will occur in the middle of October.

We have a room at a bed and breakfast, Villa Monica, until Friday, and plan to base all our daytrips from this location. We can extend our stay for an additional night. The B&B owner cwill drive you to bus and train connections.

My first question is whether we should keep our rental car for the purpose of touring the Amalfi Coast, and if so, can we do this in a day? The second question is whether we should stay the extra night in Sorrento.

From there on, we plan to spend a couple of days in Napoli, just to see the Archaeological Museum and the Capodimonte. (We expect to spend most of one day to see the archaeological museum, and see the city, and the Capodimonte and its park on the second day.) Of course, we want to walk through the Spaccanapoli. All of this will be done on foot, the metro or the bus.

We like history and art and that's why we expect to spend a good amount of time in the museums. We are not big on shopping, but we like to see the sights.

We have seen lots of Italian churches, but, what are the "must sees" that we have missed in Napoli?

If the weather has cooled, we might hike to the top of Mt. Vesuvius for the view.

We will probably spend a day each at Herculaneum and Pompeii, and a day at or around Capri.

It seems that once we are in the area, we should stay the extra night, until the following Saturday, to go home. Correct?

Lastly, we have a fair amount of luggage, and so we might rent another car to get back to Rome.
