Ravello-Venice-Naples Advice (May 29-June 10)

Jump to last reply

Wife and I (late 50s) are flying in and out of Naples on the dates above, going first to Ravello for a conference where we have a room booked for 5 nights (2 for the conference, 3 after). We are thinking then of taking cheap EasyJet from Naples to Venice for 5 nights (M-F), then returning to Naples for 2 nights (Saturday/Sunday) before flying back to US on Monday.

We are trying to decide if we should keep the three extra Ravello nights or relocate somewhere else (Sorento? Positano? Amalfi?). Also, we are wondering if it makes sense to reduce the Venice portion to 4 nights so that we can spend 3 nights in Naples. We definitely want to spend a day in Pompeii, but don't have any other definite plans for the coast or Naples. I've been to Venice myself for a couple of days but my wife hasn't. My sense is that 5 nights would not be too much, but really it depends on how much time to spend in Naples.

We like art and architecture, food and wine, and walking through cities and in nature (coast and mountains both).

Main questions:

1. Ravello or somewhere else on the Amalfi coast?
2. 5 nights in Venice/2 in Naples or 4/3?

Thanks.
