Train or rental car from Naples to Sorrento and Pompeii

Jump to last reply

Our family of four will be flying from Venice to Naples, staying three nights in Sorrento and then returning for a final night in Rome to fly home. We want to spend a day touring the Amalfi Coast, a day visiting Capri, some time in Sorrento and a day (probably on the return trip) seeing Pompeii. I don't think we will spend time in Naples. I have read here many sad stories about pick pockets on the Circumvesuvian train and am wondering if it would be better to rent a car at the Naples airport just to get to Sorrento, leave at hotel which has free parking, take bus to Amalfi, ferry to Capri, but then use the car on the way to Rome via Pompeii. If we don't rent a car, we will have all our luggage with us on the train from Sorrento to Pompeii before we take another train to Naples and a final train to Rome. How hard is this drive? Is the car or the train the better plan? Thanks.
