Driving from Rome to Sorrento

We will be in Rome end of February for 4 nights and on to Sorrento for 3 nights, then a one night back in Rome.

Is renting a car in Rome for the drive to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast a good option? Is there alot to see to make it worthwhile? Or, would it be better to take a train to Naples/Sorrento and hire a car there? There will be four of us traveling together.

I understand the difficulty of the roads along the Amalfi coast, but my husband is a fearless driver. Just wondering how the roads are from Rome to Sorrento and if it is a quick easy drive.

Thanks,
Marti

It is an easy drive. You might want to leave early enough in the morning so that you can stop and visit Pompeii on the way to Sorrento. (There is a secure parking lot right at the gate -- you either pay to park or have lunch at the restaurant there and you get free parking.)My husband really loved driving the Amalfi coast road as well as the roads up to Ravello and back over the mountains when we drove back to Rome.

Ciao Marti,

I drive on the Amalfi Coast everyday,and I think your husband will love driving here and it will give you to freedom to explore out of the way places.

Thank you all for your input. We will drive as it allows so much opportunity to expand our vista. Thank you Ira for the website info as well.
