Itinerary help around Naples

Jump to last reply

I'm currently planning a trip to Italy for this May with a friend, and we're having some trouble banging out a clear schedule. So far, we have decided to spend 4 nights in Rome before taking the train to Naples. We then have 3 days before we are hopping on a ferry to Sicily. The issue is figuring out what to do about where to stay while we're there.

The general plan we have is that the morning of the first day, we train in from Rome, then spend a fairly leisurely day in Naples eating some pizza and seeing the archeological museum. If we are feeling ambitious maybe seeing the castle as well. The next day, we want to go to Pompeii. Then the third day, I would really like to catch at least a glimpse of the Amalfi coast, and maybe take the bus up to Positano. The night of the 3rd day, at 2am, we catch our ferry out of Salerno.

The question is where we should base ourselves from to see all of this. Because of the ferry we only need 2 nights in a hotel. If we spend both nights in Naples, we will have to come all the way back to Naples to get our luggage on the last day, before heading back to Salerno for our ferry, which would eat up a lot of the day. If we spend the two nights in Salerno, then the first day we won't get much time to experience Naples because of all the extra time on the train. But staying in Naples the first night and Salerno the second seems like a lot of moving around, and it means that on the second day we would have to go all the way to Salerno first to check into our hotel and drop off our bags before going BACK to Pompeii, which seems inefficient. I really don't want to be dragging our luggage around when visiting Pompeii or the Amalfi Coast.

Help! Does anyone see a solution to streamline these packed 3 days?
