Three Centre Holiday, Italy

Jump to last reply

I am planning a holiday in Italy for this July.
Initially, my wife and I will be staying with friends near Lucca for a week.
We then plan to head south to Rome where our two teenage boys will fly in to join us. The idea is to spend 3 days in Rome before heading down to Sorrento for a further 4 days.
Normally, we would take a car for a 2 week trip like this. We would drive to Lucca with an overnight stop en-route. Then on to Rome and Sorrento. The boys could fly in and out of Rome or fly back from Naples. My wife could fly back with them if she didn’t fancy the long drive back to the U.K.
The car would give us great flexibility but I am concerned about having a foreign registered car, particularly in the Naples area. I have had cars broken into on 3 occasions in Italy over the years.
I believe that Italy has good public transport and perhaps it makes sense to let the train take the strain.
So, here is my preliminary plan: -
My wife and I fly to Pisa and pick up a hire car for local travel in the first week.
We return the hire car to Pisa airport and take a train to Rome, (from Pisa/Lucca/Florence?).
The boys join us in Rome. We then all travel to Sorrento (via train to Naples perhaps and then by Circumvesuviana/bus/boat?).
Booking the flights is the easy part. Can anyone offer advice or suggestions on travelling this route within Italy/transfers from Rome airport and railway station, transfers in Naples, onward travel to Sorrento etc.
Also, any suggestion on family accommodation in July for 3 days in Rome and 4 days in Sorrento (pool required) would be very much appreciated.
Cliff.
