HELP

by julenedec

Hi,

I am planning a trip next spring. I would like to visit Rome for a few days and then travel down to Amalfi Coast given my family heritage is from the town of Amalfi. Where is the best location to stay and what is the best mode of travel? Should I rent a car or use other forms of transportation. I also plan to visit Pomepii, Positano etc. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks, Angela

Angelina, the first question is how comfortable you are driving in Italy? In the Amalfi peninsula, especially, the roads are narrow, winding, and often have blind curves...on the other hand, the views are fantastic...for the passengers (the driver is too busy trying to stay alive ;-) ).

No, some people love driving on the peninsula, but on the whole, unless you have experience driving in urban Italy, maybe you should pass on the car.

Typically, we suggest Sorrento as the "best" location on the peninsula, because it has rail access to Naples, with Pompeii and Herculaneum on the way. There is no rail service on the south side of the peninsula (where Amalfi is), so you'll have to go by bus, which takes longer.

In your case, however, you may want to stay in Amalfi itself, although this will make getting to other places a lot more work...so if you don't have a huge need to spend several days in Amalfi itself, maybe stay in Sorrento most of the time where you have access to the rail line as well as bus service (note that Positano is halfway between Sorrento and Amalfi), and maybe spend one night over in Amalfi.
