Sorrento Peninsula OR Ischia OR Sperlonga?? Looking for ideas..

Jump to last reply

I am currently delving for ideas for a week-long trip in mid-late September. The northern Costa Brava is one option and I have received much help with this on another thread. While I am fine with this option,my partner would prefer to visit Italy.

So I am seeking advice and opinions.

We would like to mirror the experience we had on the Amalfi Coast last year, that of combining time swimming at the beach (or pool) with local sightseeing. We would prefer to tour by public transport but are certainly willing to rent a car.

Ischia is one option and CarolineE. has been most helpful on another thread. I especially would like opinions on the best location in which to base for a week on the island that would allow both beach time and sightseeing. Formia? Ischia Porto/Ponte?

An alternative would be the Sorrentine Peninsula. (NOT Sorrento itself). How does this area compares scenically to the Amalfi Coast? Is it more built up, or overrun by tourists? There seem to be plenty of walking routes....if you've stayed in this area, how did you like it?

I've considered Puglia (Gargano, Lecce area, etc) but frankly it appears that this area merits much more than one week...I am having a hard time getting an idea of the various regions within the province and what they would offer.

Last: Sperlonga, or Gaeta.. The plus of this area is that we could reach it by direct flight from the US (to Rome). The beaches looks good and the flavor of the area is appealing. Would there be enough to keep us busy off the beach??

As you can see, I need some help! Please give me your suggestions for great places to stay in any of these areas...200 Euro per night is the general price range..a pool adequate for lap swimming is adefinite plus but not essential. Great food IS essential,but all of these areas will offer that...we do not want to take half-board at a hotel, though.

Many thanks!!
