      day trips positano and amalfi/ravello

      Sorrento 2 hours ago

      Hoping to be based in sorrento next mid-march for several days and am planning, among others, one day for positano and another day for amalfi and ravello. We like strolling around, shopping, having wine, looking at architecture. Is amalfi and ravello good to group for the same day? I read you can walk (about an hour) to revello from amalfi, which we would be interested in doing.....However, it looks like amalfi and positano are on the same SITA bus line? Not sure if I should try to do all 3 in one day? but we don't want to be rushed.....I don't mind going back on the same bus the next day... thanks.

      I am confused about the ticket system on Unico Campania..On a single journey ticket, and also on a Settimanale 7 day ticket, how do I know how far I can travel from, say, Garibaldi ? For example, I am staying near Chiaiano metro in the north of the city....will the single journey ticket (or 7 day ticket ) cover me for the whole of the journey from Garibaldi. ?

      I'm not so sure about whether the buses and the boats and so on will be operating. And the restaurants, and so on, will they be open? Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

      Also since I will be leaving for Capri next day early morning so the place from where i will take ferry sshould be approachable.
      Looking forward for your help :-)

      Hi! My husband and I just booked a last minute Easter trip to Capri. We're flying in and out of Naples and have a few questions:

      1. We will be there April 5-10. Should we spend all 5 nights in Capri or should we try to visit somewhere else, like Naples or Sorrento for a night? We were thinking about spending the last day/night in Naples since we fly out of there but I haven't read great things about Naples...

      2. Any tips on must-do/see things (attractions, restaurants, beaches etc?) We both love beautiful views and are active in our early 30s.

Will transportation be running from Sorrento to Capri that day and will anything be open that we can visit. I don't care about shopping but we will probably want to find something to eat and visit some of the sites. Speaking of sites, any suggestions, we love history and beautiful nature. Thank you

      by alastair2 Online Now Jan 9, 2012 at 9:45 AM

      Hello,

      My girlfriend and I are spending 3 nights in Anacapri in July. Before we booked our hotels we didn't do much research on the island apart from the fact it's a beautiful place to visit. Now it seems it's quite an expensive place to be...

      Could anyone advise us on cheap places to eat as we'll be eating out every night. We're on quite a tight budget.

      Also what is transport like at night? Say if we wanted to eat in Capri and come back at midnight or something.

      Any other advice is appreciated and welcome.

      Thank you.

    • Lots of Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast questions!

      by hazelandantony Online Now Jan 22, 2011 at 3:53 AM

      I have a number of questions on visiting Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi coast and it would be great if someone could answer any of them.

      We (my husband and myself, both aged 30) have never visited before and wonder how long should we stay on Capri to do justice to it? It seems quite small, and I have no idea how long we should stay. Would we see everything in half a day, a day, 2 days, I just don’t know?

      We were thinking of maybe spending 1 or 2 nights before moving on to Sorrento. Is that too long or not long enough?

      Visiting the rest of the Amalfi Coast;

      Is Sorrento the best place to be based in order to visit resorts along the Amalfi coast (ie, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi etc) or would we be able to see these 3 resorts in one day (returning to Sorrento at night) or would be better advised to stay in a hotel in one of these resorts?

      Thanks

      Should I come for a visit in late October?

      by Cruiseone2003 Online Now Oct 12, 2010 at 6:56 AM

      I'm arriving into Naples by cruise ship on 28Oct and want to visit Capri. My plan is to take the Ferry from Naples and back for our departure in the evening at 6p. Schedule wise it looks like it can be done but I have a few questions to ask.
      1. How crowded do you think Capri will be in Late October on a Thursday? Two things that I read that stuck in my mind were the lines to ride the busses on the island and the funicular, how bad are they? My idea of a good time is not standing in lines waiting. We are four able bodied mid 40's person's and don't mind walking. I also read that it's a good idea to book the return ferry as soon as we arrive since the afternoon ferry's fill up. Can't I book the return in Naples?

      If Capri will be busy, any other suggestions that can be done on public transport from Naples? Already been to Pompei and Sorrento but would consider Sorrento again, just not sure what else to see and do there.

      Thank you in advance.....David

I can't recall the name of the store but I'm fairly certain it was going up towards the steep incline, away from restaurant Aurora (with photos of stars on the wall). I thought the name was something like "everything linen"; (but can't find it on google); there were outlets on both sides of the street. Can anyone help me with finding the name of the store please?
