Travel in Italy around Labor Day (May 1)

Jump to last reply

We are disembarking from a transatlantic cruise at the Rome cruise port on Monday, April 27, 2015. Its our first time in Italy and we want to tour Rome, Venice, the Amalfi coast. We are in our 70s and very timid about using trains and public transportation so we plan to hire private drivers for this first trip to Italy.

Currently we plan to go direct from the cruise port to the Amalfi coast area (via Pompeii) and stay there 2 to 3 nights and do day tours to Capri, drive along the coastline, etc. Then we planned to go back to Rome around Thursday, April 30, for 3 or 4 days before heading to Venice. That would put us in Rome during the Labor Day weekend. What can we expect if we do that (in the way of crowds, increased hotel prices, closure of sights, restaurants)?Would it make more sense to go to Rome first (before the holiday weekend) and then go to Amalfi coast during the holiday weekend, or would we run into more crowds, costs, etc. that way?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
