Italy: Sorrento - Rome via Pompeii / Herculaneum / Oplontis?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Sorrento for 6 nights visiting the Amalfi Coast towns, Capri, etc. We plan to do a day trip to Capri, drive ourselves to Amalfi, and also do a boat trip to Amalfi so we can see it both ways.

We definitely want to spend 1/2 day at Pompeii, and arrange for to enter some of the locked buildings with a special guide. We also want to visit Herculaneum & Oplontis.

We wonder if we should plan to see Pompeii / Herculaneum / Oplontis as a day trip from Sorrento, going back in the evening, or spend one night on our way to Rome?

Or, continue on to Rome after seeing these?

This is one leg of a 3 week trip in Italy 10-16/17 June.

Also, which grottos are the best to plan to see? Some don't have very good reviews as per crowds.
