Need help planning 3-nite coastal excursion: Rome-Amalfi-Rome

Jump to last reply

Does spending Oct 1-15 in Rome - and taking a 3-day excursion in the middle of it to Amalfi Coast make sense?

Looks like it's only 2-hours to Sorrento w speed train - and that way I can get a direct flight from Rome to NY on 15th. If I put Amalfi at the tail end of my trip i'd have to drag all my luggage there, then get back to Naples where there are no non-stop flights back to NYC.

B+B in Rome would probable be thrilled to have a 12 night booking and store my suitcase - so I can travel light with an overnight bag.

Problem is, I really can't figure out a itinerary... Rome-Coast-Rome....-for 3-nights on coast - Best way to travel, where to stay as home base - and what to try and see without make it a marathon.

- Read that the view from coastal bus ride from Sorrento to Salerno is a must, but can't find schedule for bus with specifics
- Salerno has a direct train back to Rome with no change in Naples - But then read Sorento is not worth going that far up the coast
- Do I spend a few hours in Sorrento and then take bus on to Amalfi or Postino to use as home base?

- I thought it might be a refreshing change to admit I'm a tourist + take a proper tour out of Rome that provides, transportation, accomodations and gets me back to Rome - but I think that the fact that I'm traveling alone, and they are based on doubled occupancy is going to make it too expensive.

So can anyone suggest a plan for a 3 night excursion from Rome to Amalfi? Best way to get there and back, home--base, and what places to see.

I looks do-able and less exhausting, but I'm clueless when it comes to the best way to plan it.

Thanks all!
