"Must see/do/eat" in: Rome, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Amalfi, Naples

Jump to last reply

We are planning a relaxing trip to the Amalfi Coast in early May. I will be 24-25 weeks pregnant so instead of our usual action-packed itinerary we are making this trip more about staying in beautiful places, wandering around and experiencing the area, and eating good food and less about hitting every tourist attraction, museum, etc. (we did those to the extreme when we visited northern Italy 2 years ago). Rather than planning a detailed and micromanaged itinerary we plan to "wing it" on this trip and just take a short list for each city with anything we consider "must see/do," a few "might be nice to see/do" options, and a list of restaurants we may wish to seek out to fit into our time in each city. We'll pick and choose from that list depending on how we feel at the time.

We will be stopping at Pompeii on our way down, and hope to take a half-day trip to Ravello from Amalfi, but aside from those two our days are completely free and uncommitted. Please share your must see/do items, things that might be nice to see or do but aren't essential, and any recommended restaurants!

Rome --- almost one full day and one night (plus one late night at the end of our trip but we will likely arrive close to midnight, sleep, wake up and head to the airport so we aren't planning anything that night). we spent 6 days/6 nights in Rome on a previous trip seeing many of the "must-see/do" attractions and will be tired after a long flight. We will likely wander around Piazza Navona and the surrounding area depending on how we feel with nothing more concrete planned. However, any restaurant recommendations would be highly appreciated!

Sorrento --- we will be spending one late afternoon and evening here after Pompeii, but will leave for Positano in the morning. would love a good restaurant rec for dinner and if there is anything we should try to see in our short time there, please share. otherwise we will just wander/relax

Positano -- we will have 2 days and 2 nights here. nothing planned.

Capri --- we will have 2 days and 2 nights here. we would tentatively like to take a boat trip around the island - any recommendations? nothing else planned.

Amalfi --- we will have 4 days and 4 nights here. we plan to take a half-day trip to Ravello. We are considering a day trip to Paestum but may opt to stay in Amalfi instead if it seems like too much and we decide we'd prefer to relax

Naples -- we will probably spend much of our last full day here on our way back from Amalfi to Rome. I believe the latest train back to Rome is about 9:30pm

We will have terraces in Positano, Capri and Amalfi.

I look forward to hearing your suggestions! Thank you
