    • One Day in Naples

      Naples Feb 20, 2015 at 5:26 PM

      Actually it is one full day and one half day (we are taking the train from Florence, arriving at about 11 AM, will take our luggage to the hotel and I figure we'll have from 1 PM on). Our full day my wife and I are taking a tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius so that will occupy pretty much the whole day (9:30 - 5:30). The question is what to do the half day? Based off travel books I have come up with going to the historic area and having pizza for lunch, visiting the Royal Palace, taking a tour of the Opera House, and in the evening visiting the Archeological Museum (our hotel is very close by). I'm assuming the Palace and the Opera House will each take about an hours. Is this reasonable, or are there better sights?

    • Walking up Vesuvius from Ercolano

      Parco Nazionale del Vesuvio Feb 3, 2015 at 8:02 AM

      We wish to walk from Ercolano to the summit of Vesuvius using the network of paths in the National Park . We have the leaflet showing half a dozen or so routes but not sufficient details of the exact start point etc. Does anyone know where we can source details of ascent routes up Vesuvius? ( We know that most folk are happy to walk form the road end but we want more than 30 minutes exercise!)

      Steps in Positiano

      Campania Feb 15, 2015 at 9:56 AM

      We are considering a trip to Positiano which has many steep steps. We will be traveling with a 3 year old and this is of concern. Would Sorrento, Amalfi or Salerno be a better choice or are they all the same in regards to the number of steps?

    • Questions about Sorrento

      by degregg2000 Online Now Jul 7, 2014 at 6:41 AM

      We are going to Sorrento and then Naples. Is it better to see Mt Vesuvius when we get to Naples? What about Pompei and the Herulaneum?
      Just trying to see as much as we can for the time we are there.

      We are traveling from to Sorrento through Naples. I thought it would be easier to take the ferry from Naples to Sorrento. The website for the ferry is in Italian what times do the ferries run and how far is the ferry docking place from the train station?

      Thank you

      by kowloonsan Online Now Apr 23, 2014 at 6:43 AM

      We will spend 3 days in Scafati and plan to visit the Pompeii ruins, Sorrento and Almafi coast. We will take a train from Napoli Centrale to Pompeii. I am not sure which train station to get off. The B&B we will stay at is close to the Scafati train station. Should we get off at Torre Annunziata Centrale or the Pompeii station and switch to a local train to to go Scafati train station? Where can I find the train schedules for the bus and the local trains? Another question about the transporation in Sorrento area. I read on some web postings there are Circumvesuviana train tickets, tickets for "UNICO CAMPANIA U 5", "UNICO CAMPANIA E2 or E3", SITA, EAV, and "UNICO COSTIERA". Would some one please explain what they are and which routes they serve. Also there are tickets for 24 hrs and 3 days or 2 days. Is a 24 hrs ticket good for 24 hours from the time the ticket is purchased or only for the same day? Does a 3 day ticket means it is good for 3 calendar days or 3 - 24 hr periods. Can the multiple ride tickets be used on buses or trains from Scafati to Sorrento and the Amalfi coast? Do the tickets need to be validated like those in Rome? Last thing, where can I buy those tickets, single ride or multiple day pass (rides)? Hope you don't mind too many questions. Your answer will save me lots of headache when we are in Italy? "non parlano italiano" Thank you. Al

    • Have questions about traveling from Sorrento to the Amalfi area?

      by Lary1047 Online Now Mar 15, 2014 at 5:55 AM

      Hello everyone,

      HI everyone

      We are staying in Sorrento for 4 days this coming June. We would like to travel down the Amalfi coast and visit the different small cities as we have seen the beautiful pictures and scenery that have been taken. Can anyone suggest the best way to visit this area. We have seen several one day tours available, or would it be to our advantage to visit the Amalfi coastal cities by using the bus and walking the cities at our pace, rather than stuck in a van for 8 hours? Also there is the boat one way down the coast and then some other way back to Sorrento from Amalfi???

      Up for suggestions! Thanks for everyone’s responses.
