Emphatic answers!

by venice2009

Ok, so, driving is out of the question. Thank you so very much for the advice. I know I won't be sorry as I sit comfortably in the train watching all the traffic snarled up along the roads! So, my final question. Are you all already laughing? Would it be worth doing a couple of hours in Pompeii (I'm pretty sure that is about the amount of tolerance I can handle- ADHD!) going on train to Sorrento and then back to Naples or should I simply head back to Naples to see the sights there after Pompeii? Oh yeah, I am from Vancouver, Canada, and the drving here is pretty civilized. I have driven in places such as LA, so I figured it wouldn't be that difficult. I will heed your warnings everyone. Thanks.

If I was you, I'd play Pompeii by ear. I suspect you may find that even you want to spend longer than a couple of hours there: it's not a museum, remember, it's a huge town.

However, if you do only spend a couple of hours there I'd skip Sorrento. Pretty though it is, it's not really a must-see imo. Either go back towards Naples on the Circumvesuviana and stop off at Ercolano to see ancient Herculaneum, or back into the city itself to explore a bit.

But best, as I say, to play it by ear on the day.

Am very glad you have decided not to drive. Apart from the practicalities (it wouldn't have saved you any time really, and would certainly have cost you more money), you will realise once you are there why we suggested that you ddn't!

Driving in L.A., a city built for cars, is in no way similar to driving in any Italian city, let alone Naples! It's not a matter of traffic jams (which you will in any case experience if taking buses) so much as driving behaviour.
I see no reason not to take yourself to Pompeii (Scavi) on the Circumvesuviana intending to stay for a couple of hours, but would agree with Leics a) that you might stay longer than you think, just because the site is so big, and b) that there isn't much to see in Sorrento, although your reason for going might just be to experience the ride along the coast, or to take a bus, or get the ferry back to Naples from there. Many people use it as a starting point for the ferry to Capri, but if you are staying in Naples you can also do that from there.

I echo Leics and Gaminari. In addition, although you anticipate only spending two hours in Pompeii, I assume that is "viewing time". You will have to allow for time to enter the site, to orientate yourself, and also for the crowds - can't remember when you are going but there are bound to be groups of "immovable objects" that you will keep encountering. The ticket place will give you a leaflet guide for the site which lists 2, 4 and 6 hour tours but it will take you some time to work out where you are and where the listed items are, etc. I strongly urge you to invest in an audio guide. Just play Pompeii by ear (now that conjures up a marvellous picture!!), as it can get under your skin and draw you in. Not as much as Herculaneum. I don't think even after a 2 hour tour of Pompeii that going back to Naples "to do the sights" is realistic. Naples is not for the faint-hearted and "doing the sights" is very time-consuming in terms of location and so on. As the others have said, go to Pompeii, and then consider hopping off at Torre Annunciata for the Villa Oplontis on the way back to Naples. Or, if you have ample time, at Ercolano for an equally quick visit to Herculaneum.

Travel Tips for Naples

Visit the seaside town of...

by Razorart

Visit the seaside town of Positano. You take the Circumvesuviana to Sorrento and then from there, a SITA bus to the Amalfi Coast. Positano is roughly 1/2 hour away.

An artist's mecca at the turn of the century, and there is no wonder why. You will not believe your eyes.

When you get off of the bus, walk to the side of the road and look down before immediately going to the walkway. You'll see the bluest water--about one mile down! The cliffs appear crowded with the white buildings which are homes, stores, restaurants, etc.

It's a pretty expensive area to stay in, however and the vibe is more European-tourist (read: wealthy). W
hen I visited, I stayed in the much quieter town of Praiano which is the next resort/beach area after Positano. It's less exciting and seemed to appeal more to Italian families on vacation. Less exciting, but just as beautiful.

Sorrento

by ruki

Sorrento is situated on a plain above the sea, overlooking the Bay of Naples. The view from Sorrento stretches back to the north, encompassing Vesuvius, the city of Naples, and the island of Ischia. The town is exceedingly popular with tourists, particularly the British - indeed, English appears at times to be Sorrento's first language. It has a pretty old town, a harbour with ferry departures to Capri, Amalfi and Naples, and is within easy reach of the Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Herculaneum and the city of Naples. There is some good walking in the peninsula, and plenty of restaurants and bars for the less energetic.

La Brace

by ellenron about La Brace

This is a very cheap & friendly restaurant with great italian atmosphere. The croud is mostly local. If there is a football match on TV you can go and watch it there and enjoy watching the croud. I was there during an Italy-England game, and there was an English toursit there who cheered his own team, and everyone were glad for him when the match ended in a draw which was good for England but bad for Italy. Pizza. They bake the pizzas in the place. Also try the Calzonne. The pasta is also good at this place, but pizzas & calzonnes are their speciality

Lose yourself in Centro Storico

by Wowmoment

The ancient streets are very narrow and built on a grid.

A map from the tourist information centre (Piazza dei Gesu) will show you the various periods of buildings such as Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo etc. But if that is not of interest just wander and enjoy getting lost in this rabbit warren.

Vomero

by Polly74

This is an extremely peaceful, relaxing area of the city just the opposite of SpaccaNapoli. The area is full of museums, monuments, shops and historical coffee shops. A truly unforgettable experience is a trip on the Montesanto cable railway, from where it is possible to have a great view of Castel Sant'Elmo and the Certosa di San Martino.
