Rome Amalfi Florence - Drives and sights

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Rome and taking the train into Florence. From Florence, we will head to Sorrento and then to Rome. We have not booked hotels yet, but here is how many nights we plan to stay at each:

Florence:
6 NIGHTS we will have 6 1/2 days to explore

Sorrento:
5 nights; we will have a total of 4 1/2 days to explore

Rome:
4 nights; we will leave Naples early in the morning to have a full 4 days to explore Rome before departing on the 27th.

QUESTION 1: In your opinion, should we stay in Florence or Naples 1 night less to add a night to Rome?

When in Florence, we plan to visit Venice(train), Bologna-Emilia, Siena and wine country, Pisa/Lucca, Sights in Florence.

When in Rome, we plan to visit the major sites. Ancient Rome area, Vatican, St. Peter's and surrounding area, Pantheon, Villa Borghese gardens and some museums. We may want to visit Orvieto/Assisi.

When in Sorrento, we plan to visit Capri, Pompei, do some hiking, drive the Amalfi Coast. QUESTION 2: Do you have other recommendations besides these activities/sights?

QUESTION 3: Is is a good Idea to Drive to Rome from Florence OR is it a better idea to take the train from Florence to Naples?

QUESTION 4: Is it a good idea to drive from Naples to Rome?

QUESTION 5: Out of the 2 drives, which is more scenic? I know that the drive from Florence to Rome is longer, but is it not dangerous or difficult?

QUESTION 6: What sites need reservations.
QUESTION 7: Is the Roma Pass worth purchasing?
QUESTION 8: Is Necropolis worth visiting?
QUESTION 9: What is the best site to purchase train tickets? Is there a pass good to use on all public transportation in Italy. Kind of like a All for One ticket?
