Suggestions for touring Amalfi Coast from the US naval base in Naples

Jump to last reply

Hi all. This site has been very helpful as I begin to narrow down our options. We are planning a trip to Italy in late August/early September for about 3 weeks. We are in our mid 50s and never been to Europe before. We are not interested in shopping at all. We are more about soaking up the atmosphere and learning about the history, do some people watching, and taking pictures.

Our son's family is stationed at the US naval base in Naples so we will stay there on weekends and venture out during the week when they are working. I am still waiting for a good price on airfare but right now it appears 8/27-9/16 will be our travel dates. I have no idea if this is a good itinerary, if it's too much, if I am missing something, or if anyone has any better suggestions.

Tentative itinerary:

Arrive Naples Wed Aug 28 - spend rest of week with family in Naples
Monday Sept 2 - travel to Amalfi coast for 3 nights (Sorrento, Positano, or Amalfi?)
Thurs Sept 5 - travel to Paestum - stay overnight (is this worth doing?)
Fri Sept 6 - Paestum and then train back to Naples
Weekend - visit Pompeii / Herculaneum with the family
Mon Sept 9 - travel to Rome for 2 nights (hotel suggestions?)
Wed Sept 11- rent car in Rome and drive up to Florence/Tuscany for 2 nights (hotel?)
Fri Sept 12 - train back to Naples (or should we just drive back?)
Weekend in Naples with family
Tues Sept 16 - depart Naples

I am not sure where to stay on Amalfi. I have heard the pros and cons about each place. We are not fancy people so simple hotels / B&Bs are fine. Most important would be central location and easy access to public transportation. Thanks for any suggestions.
