Timing for Pompeii, Amalfi & Capri late June

Jump to last reply

I'm helping out my sister with trip plans to Sorrento. I haven't visited Sorrento/Amalfi region in high season, and need some advice to pass on. They arrive in Naples via train Thursday evening and are renting a car to drive to Sorrento for 4 nights. While there they want to visit Pompeii, Amalfi Coast, and Capri. What is best order? I have given her some info about the Circumvesuviana for Pompeii and SITA bus and red coast to coast buses for Amalfi. Myself I would maybe say Pompeii first day since that will leave them a little time also to orient themselves in Sorrento, then one day take a bus to Amalfi, then maybe ferry Amalfi to Positano, then bus back to Sorrento, then one day ferry to Capri.

How busy are the buses/ferries? Any tips for them that I can pass on? Is it worth them trying to drive on coastal road and stop in Ravello too? Is there parking? I would be put off from driving myself by info in forums and suggested the bus. But maybe I'm wrong?

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
