I'm just starting to plan our trip to Naples and the Amalfi Coast end May/early June this year. There is a lot of information around and enough questions about itineraries here and elsewhere but I am still lost. We have 9 nights/10 days and there is so much to see and do. Sometimes you think you need a lot of time and it's too much and sometimes you think you don't need so much time and are totally wrong so I'd appreciate some feedback on my plans. I haven't booked any accommodation yet until I've nailed down the itinerary so if it can be optimized, I'd like to do so to get the best out of this trip.
I was originally going to rent a small car but the comments about roads and parking have scared me off, so hoping to do it all by public transport. We are open to renting a car for one or two days if necessary.
Day 1 - arrive 2:30pm in Naples from Munich, (night in Naples)
Day 2 - Pompei, (night in Naples)
Day 3 - Herculaneum/Vesuvio, (night in Naples)
Day 4 - leave for Ischia, (night on Ischia)
Day 5 - explore Ischia, (night on Ischia)
Day 6 - leave for Sorrento, explore Sorrento, (night in Sorrento)
Day 7 - Day trip to Capri, (night in Sorrento)
Day 8 - bus to Positano, beach somewhere??, what else, (night in Sorrento)
Day 9 - bus to Amalfi, then Ravello, (night in Sorrento
Day 10 - morning in Sorrento, take airport bus to Naples airport for 3pm flight
I feel like I've left out some nice areas cos we won't have a car. The above are obviously all places on the beaten track. I wanted to do a walk/short hike but it looks like there isn't going to be time!
