Naples or Sorrento in August with 5 kids?

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to Italy this August (family of 7 with 5 kids between 16 and 7) - are flying into Rome and out of Milan and will be only using trains and buses. So far (although we can still change these days around) we are spending 4 nights in Rome / 5 night is Florence and 4 nights in Venice which leaves us with 5 nights in the Naples area. We are all very keen to see the area and obviously Pompeii but I am just wondering if Naples is the best option? Unfortunately apartments for 7 of us near Positano/Amalfi Coast are out of our budget for this trip and because we won't be driving, anything more affordable away from the coast seems tricky to get to etc. However we could stay in Sorrento.

I am liking what I am reading about Naples and would like kids to experience it - this is a different sort of holiday to our usual (gites for 2 weeks or camping through Europe - all by car, the kids have asked for what they consider a 'cultural' holiday rather than the full on activity ones that we usually have) but maybe I am being unrealistic about what they will enjoy in a city in summer and should look at Sorrento as an 'easier' option for them instead?

Any thoughts...
