Where to go in Italy over the New Year period

Jump to last reply

As my husband and I have never had a winter Christmas we have booked a "Fairytale Christmas in Bavaria" tour which starts in Frankfurt on December 18 and ends in Lucerne on December 28. We fly home out of Rome on January 6 and want to see some more of Italy in those 8 days.
We have been to Italy on a European tour and visited Rome, Florence, Venice, Pisa and Orvietto. I would really love to visit the Amalfi coast but have heard that it is dead at that time of year and transport around the area less frequent (especially the ferries). The scenery and walking around Positano & Ravello are what appeals to me, not the entertainment factor, so the fact that is the "off season" doesn't put me off (as long as we can get around). Has any one else been to the Amalfi coast at this time of year? Is it worth it or should we spend our time else where...and where?
If we spend 4 nights on the Amalfi coast we will have 4 night left. Any suggestions?
Your ideas and suggestions would be appreciated as we seem to be going around in circles trying to plan it.
