Naples and the Amalfi Coast - Five Nights

Jump to last reply

I need help thinking through a 5 night itinerary in this area and would appreciate your ideas. My husband and I (working 60-somethings) and 23 y/o daughter are looking to take the 10 night Celebrity Reflection cruise out of Civitavecchia/Rome in the first part of Sept, 2014. We will spend a day and a half in Rome prior to the departure (been there before). This will include these ports of call: Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Ephesus, Rhodes, Messina/Sicily, and Naples. Celebrity confirms we can disembark in Naples on the last day, rather than cruising overnight back to Civitavecchia. We have never been to this part of Italy. So, our idea is to spend Sept 14 - 18 (5 nights) in Naples/Sorrento/Amalfi Coast (Positano?) before going back to FCO for our noon flight home on the 19th. Figuring we should spend the night of the 18th at a hotel near FCO then we will have almost 5 full days. We would like to see Pompeii and Herculaneum and perhaps the archeological museum in Naples, but otherwise mostly relax and enjoy the Amalfi Coast. Not sure about whether to bother with Capri but open to suggestions. I have not yet researched how one gets from this area back to FCO. So your thoughts on that would also be appreciated.

I'm thinking of spending 2 nights in Naples or Sorrento and 3 nights in Positano. Although we have driven in Italy and other European countries, I'm a bit nervous about renting a car in this area. So ideas about how to get around would also be appreciated.
