Napoli logistics

Jump to last reply

I'm all booked for three weeks in Italy this August / September, with a focus on Naples (solo), Venice, and Florence (both with friends).

I could use some help in deciding what is realistic for Naples. I am currently looking at either two nights Rome (for jet lag recovery) and six nights in Napoli, or three nights in Anacapri and five nights in Napoli.

1. Rome Fiumicino to Anacapri.

I've mapped out the bus / train / ferry schedules, and understand that it takes three to five hours. I land in Rome mid-morning, and in theory I could make it to Anacapri by mid-afternoon & take it easy for three nights. Which sounds lovely.

I know it's doable. My question is: is this a stressful trip with all the connections, or relatively straightforward?

The other option is to rest in Rome a few nights prior to Naples (good), and only do a day trip to Capri (not good).

2. Napoli proper.

There is just so much here that I can't really comprehend it. Would 2 1/2 days for the city itself do it a slight bit of justice?

3. Campi Flegrei

I've seen itineraries for independent travel here that involves a train to Pozzouli, a bus to and from the Phlegrean fields, a train to Baia, a bus to Cuma (cave of the Sibyl), then a bus back to Pozzouli.

The writer makes it sound so easy, but I am suspicious ... is this a realistic day? I speak enough Italian to get by, but I find the bus system in most Italian cities to be remarkably opaque. I'm suspicious of any itinerary that involves a lot of buses.

________________________________

Otherwise, I have a full day set for Pompei / Torre Anunziata / Ercolano; and a day trip to Paestum would work if the Campi Flegrie itinerary is too much of a hassle.
