Leaving Capri/Amalfi Coast - train or car rental?

Jump to last reply

I am, with husband and newly graduated daughter, anticipating a lovely trip to Rome/Capri/Umbria in the second half of May. The plan so far: traveling from Rome to Salerno by train and then driving (bus? taxi? car service?) to Sorrento where we'll take a ferry to Capri and stay (Anacapri) 2 nights. The next destination is Spoleto. I had originally thought we'd leave Capri by ferry to Naples and take a train to Spoleto, where we'd rent a car for a few days of nosing around Umbria. The question becomes, why not rent the car in either Naples or Sorrento and drive to Spoleto. Is either one (Naples or Sorrento) easier to leave by car?
I've learned so much from others' posts, thanks to all for generous responses!
