MATERA AND ???

Jump to last reply

We will be in Naples from the 27th of February until the 1st of March. On the morning of the 2nd our plans are to head to Matera for 2 nights and then have an additional 2 nights before returning to Salerno / Amalfi.

The bus / train combination to Matera takes some 4 hours and is not as frequent limiting flexibility (the same for a return), thus the thought to rent a car in either Naples or Salerno and drive to Matera utilizing 4 nights round trip. 2 in Matera and 2 in ???

We would spend the 3rd-4th in Matera and then head back towards Amalfi Coast area with a 2 night stop off on the 5th and 6th somewhere. The 7th we would then drop car in Salerno or Naples and taking public transportation to Amalfi (not driving Amalfi route myself) where we will stay 3 nights before heading to Rome and then USA.

My questions are as follows :

1- Suggestion for 2 nights (5th and 6th) after Matera as a place to stop for sightseeing.
2 - Is the car choice more practical than public transportation given schedule frequency

The driving force behind all of this is the desire to see Matera as we have never been in this part of Italy before.

Appreciate feedback you can give. Thanks !!
