May 2012 in Naples, Pompeii and Capri, perhaps Sorrento

Jump to last reply

We will be going to Italy to see my husband's father in May of May 2012 . We will spend a week in Genoa (where my husband grew up) and then will spend either a week in Genoa or visit the one area of Italy we have never been to and would like to see--Naples, Pompeii, Capri, and perhaps Sorrento. The famed Amalfi coast interests us somewhat less, perhaps because we live in California and have our own beautiful coast so easily available to us. Also we would prefer trains to renting a car.The question is how much time do we need, where should we center ourselves geographically (one place or several, our usual preference is one but sometimes we move about) and what are peoples' thoughts about experiences we shouldn't miss. The time issue is complicated--I would like to take three weeks, but am self-employed in a field where it is hard on people when I am away. A week goes to Genova, leaving one to two more (including travel days ) for the rest of the trip.

Suggestions?
Mille grazie
