To drive or not to drive

Jump to last reply

Will be in Italy in July for 2 weeks. We are starting from Rome and do the south part of the country this time. We already did the Milan, venice, Florence and Rome route. Now, we would like to do Rome, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast and Sicily. In Sorrento, we are staying at Hilton Sorrento. I need help on deciding as far as transportation is concern. When we did the north part of the country, we basically took the train from city to city. While in the city, we took the local trains. We always enjoy doing this and doesnt really care about hiring a car while on vacation. We drive a lot as it is in our everyday life, so we prefer taking it slowly and less stressful. I am just not so sure how it will be on the coast if we want to visit the area. We would like to do the major attraction like pompeii ( daughter wants to see this for sure ), Mt V...I understand with this, we could take the train like we did with Pisa while we were in Florence. I hope. Does anybody have any suggestions how to go around this part of the country without hiring a car or do we really have to hire a car?
