Too many things to see in Southern Italy-is this itinerary even possible?

Jump to last reply

You all have been a great help in coming up with ideas for our time in Southern Italy next summer, but you have also created the problem of having too many things we really want to see now! In order to squeeze an extra night into our time over in Puglia, I am considering trying to make this happen on one day near the middle of our trip as we leave the Amalfi coast:

Early morning take the bus from Amalfi town to Salerno and pick up a rental car.
Drive to Paestum and see the ruins ( I should note we are fairly quick sightseers)
Drive to Castelmezzano for lunch and to hopefully do the zipline
Drive to Matera in time for dinner and to stay for two nights

Thoughts? How far off the main highway is Castelmezzano? Obviously, this is not an ideal itinerary, but the other options seem to be spending the night in Castelmezzano, which means only a day and a half in Puglia, or cutting Castelmezzano out completely. Right now our travel philosophy is to see a lot on each trip so that when we come back to that region in a few years we know where we want to slow down and take more time.
