      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?

    • Walking up Vesuvius from Ercolano

      by DavidC156 Online Now 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!)

    • How to...?

      by JAYNENAP Online Now May 21, 2005 at 3:57 AM

      We are holidaying in Sant'Agnello just outside Sorrento again this year. Last year my son was desperate to go up Vesuvius but we just didn't have time. How do we get there (we are staying close to the Circumvesuviana rail line) and have absolutely got to do it (we promised). Our children will be 10 and 7. Any ideas?
