Rome - Sorrento - Amalfi ... then Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Our plan, not yet well formed, is to spend 5 days in Rome (where we've been before), then 3 in Sorrento , devoting 1 day to travel and Sorrento itself, and 1 day each to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Then 2 days on Amalfi Coast. Then on to Switzerland for 6 days of mostly hiking. We don't want to rent a car. We'll be in Italy Sept. 22-Oct 2.

Questions: (1) Does this seem a reasonable amount of time to see these places? (2) What are best sources to learn about what to do, stay, etc. in Sorrento and Amalfi coast? I'm well inclined toward Fodor guides, but anything else? (3) How should we get to Switzerland? I assume the easiest thing would be to fly from Naples to Zurich. But is there a wonderful rail journey instead, perhaps through Milan and then into southern Switzerland? (4) Anything else you can discern that we should have asked.

Thanks, Mitchell
