      Bus to Salerno

      Positano Oct 4, 2016 at 10:23 AM

      Have booked a 9:52am train from Salerno and am staying in Positano. Should we be able to make it using the buses or would it be wiser to spend the night before in Salerno?

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

      Park & Ride Naples?

      Naples Sep 29, 2016 at 11:10 AM

      We are planning to stay outside of Naples, and then drive part way in when we need to. Is there a good place to park where we can then easily catch a bus or metro further into the centre?

      Have been inquiring into tours that would include both POMPEII and HERCULANEUM. Our cruise ship is charging260 Canadian for just one location. Another company, ItalyCarService wants to charge430 for both locations.
      I am reading here that you are being charged at the entrance, not arriving there in a Mercedes Limousine or whatever.
      Is there a sensible way to get transportation to both sites, between 9 in the morning and 5 in the evening?

    • Herculaneum OR Pompeii

      by ChrisCol Online Now Jul 7, 2006 at 1:43 PM

      Does anyone know if you can visit both and if not, what's better: Herculaneum or Pompeii.
      Is the first better than the latter?

      We are taking the train from Sorento to Herculaneum on Wednesday, May 31, 2006.
      We are a party of four and would like to get a guuide to show us through the ruins. Any suggestions on how to make arrangements before we get to Italy to get an English speaking guide? We found an article from the St. Petersburgh Times (2001) who were pleased with the guide Eetore.

      Leaving for Italy next week. We will be staying just outside of Sorrento and are planning on perhaps going to Herculaneum in addition to Pompeii. What is the best way to get to Herculaneum from Sorrento? We will have a rental car. Thanks!
