Naples, Capri, Sorrento & Pompeii in 1 Day...

Jump to last reply

Please don't tell me I'm crazy, just give me some advice and suggestions on how to do it...

My husband and I (38 and 35) are flying from Chicago to Rome, while in Rome, I have the "brilliant" idea of doing all those places in one day...(he doesn't know it yet, but he follows me well if I, at least, schedule time for him to eat..). My "plan" is take the 7:30 am fastest train to Naples, walk through the city for a couple of hours, take the boat to Capri (I wanted to visit the Blue Grotto, but one fodorite said that to go there was going to be impossible because of the cold weather (November 28). Then, stay in Capritown for an hour or so, then take the ferry to Sorrento, do a very short walk through the city, take the Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii, visit the tourist sites, take the Circumvesuviana back to Naples, eat pizza there for dinner (which of the 2 famous places you recommend?) and take the train back to Rome (hopefully still alive!)

I'd like to know what people think about it (please be nice, I know that I'm not supposed to do everything in my first trip...), do you like the way I've planned it? or should I do it the other way? (Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Naples). Thanks!
