Rome/Campangnia in October

Has anyone been to Rome, Amalf Coast, Ischia in October? We (my husband, my two daughters, my son, my daughter's boyfriend and me) will be travelling from 9/28-10/13 and will be staying in Praiano.

We rented a van for two weeks and will be doing touristy things the first week. i.e., Rome for three days and day trips to Ischia, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Positano and Amalfi because my daughter and her boyfriend will only be with us for one week.

What's the weather like? What clothes should we bring? Are the thermal baths in Ischia doable during October? Where do we catch the ferry (Naples, Monte di Procida, Positano) to Ischia?

In answer to your general question, we've been to Rome and Campagna in late October. We've been extremely lucky with weather. Warm and dry days, pleasant nights. But without a crystal ball, there's no way to tell you what to expect, and you should assume it could be cool and possibly wet at some point.

Here's a link to ferry and bus timetables:

Ah.... you both mean Campania, I take it?

We've been here on Ischia for almost every day of the last nine Octobers, having moved to the island from London in 2003 - however we prefer to delay our own visits to Rome until mid-November!

October's usually very pleasant - a time when the islanders can get to enjoy some of what everyone else has had over the summer! Occasional heavy thunderstorms, which generally clear quite quickly.. often lasting no longer than lunch does!

Try these for what the island's like through the months...

- and perhaps have a look at August's edition of the visitor magazine, for details of the various spa gardens? They're all open until well into October, although some will close before it ends...

For those November trips to Rome:


If OK with an early start, rather than going via Naples - from where there are however lots of crossings - it's probably easier from Praiano to take this morning hydrofoil service from Sorrento....

Otherwise, have a look thru' my "Travel to and From..." notes here:

... as you could even drive right round to Pozzuoli, beyond Naples, and then take the ferry across from there?


You'll find an excellent report of such an outing from Sorrento (although to the Giardini Poseidon, rather than our own favourite - Negombo) here:

OK so far?
