New Year's in Rome, Amalfi Coast, or Orvieto?

Jump to last reply

Have booked 13 nites in Rome for Christmas and New Years. I'm now wondering if we should shorten our Rome stay, take the 3 nites Dec. 29,30 & 31, 2016 and find accommodation on the Amalfi coast and plan Dec. 30th for tour of Pompeii, but will everyplace on the Amalfi coast be boarded up and dead for New Years? Naples would be close to Pompeii, but I've heard it's not an attractive option. Another idea is to take those 3 nights and try to get a booking in Orvieto for the Jazz Festival. Orvieto will be lively, but they may want to require 5 nite bookings since the Jazz Festival lasts for 5 nights. I'm not sure if my daughter will return to her home a few days after Christmas, or will stay on til New Years. She has 4 children in the age range of 7yrs. to 15 yrs. Do children go to the Jazz Festival or is their attendance not appropriate? The 2 oldest play instruments themselves and one of the younger ones had a major role in a summer musical. So I know music is of interest to them. It might be a great experience for them and yet if it is more like New Orleans for Mardi Gras with questionable adult behavior then children should not attend. What would you do? Stay in Rome for New Years? If we were to leave Rome, then we waste time with checking out, hauling luggage, checking in and then returning to Rome a night before flying out on Jan. 2nd because all the flights I've seen are early morning departure to the US. Sounds like I'm convincing myself to keep the entire stay in Rome. We could still see Pompeii as a day trip. Would that be miserable in December anyway? Honest opinions are welcome.
