Maximum beautiful places in the south of Italy in 7 full days

ddiedov ” 16 Aug 2018, 10:21

Please help with one day from the itinerary. Will be in Naples (lodging paid for) from 25/08 to 27/08 (return departure about 16:30).

The original plan was to leave early in the morning on 26/08 for Bomerano, walk the Trail of the Gods, go down to one of the coastal towns for a walk and a swim.

Now, studying in detail the schedule of buses and electric trains, I understand that it is unreal to get from Naples to Bomerano and back to Naples in the evening, and it’s on Sunday.

Can you advise a day trip from Naples with a roughly similar program? A hike through the natural beauty and the sea for swimming?

P.S. to Vesuvius and Pompeii scheduled for 25/08. For Naples itself 25 evening and 27 – all the way to the train. I want exactly a walk in nature + sea.

Hello! Coming to Rome and flying out of Rome, but we have already seen Rome and want to maximize the beautiful places in southern Italy in 7 full days. The plan is approximately: 1) Naples, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri, Sorrento, Salerno 2) Bari, Alberobello, Matera

Does it make sense to take a car in Rome, or is it better to take the train to Naples, see the surroundings, swim to Capri, and take a car for a trip to Bari and back? Where better to live point 1) and point 2) ? Can you swim in these regions in mid-November and which coast is better? How best to distribute the time to these cities, where to stay longer and what to combine in one day? Maybe something to cross out, add or replace?

And its surroundings as part of the day trips – too? All of them?

This is not even a plan yet, it is the most general intentions, possibly good, but completely unrelated to reality, including time. Start to make a real route – and you will see that it is necessary to go (if you do not aim just “to drive through Italy”), or in p.1, or in p.2. Until then I do not see practical sense to analyze in detail both options.

my answer is: one of these points.

And then, respectively

Depending on what you want to see. You need to understand what you want in principle. For example, the need for Sorrento and Salerno I have strong doubts at all.

Replace Sorrento and Salerno with the stretch of coast between those cities, also known popularly as Amalfitana.

I wouldn’t sail to Capri or skip Naples, but add Pestum on the way from Salerno to Matera.

You have to move every day after Naples to get everything done, there’s no time to go back and forth. And so a day more wouldn’t hurt.

Between Naples and Bari there are poor OT connections. And you have three options – or immediately by car from Rome to go to Bari for 4 days, and from there to Naples, and there to rent a car (in which case you can pay an extra 45-60 euros for the change elsewhere) … Or take the train to Naples, sleep overnight, take the car, go to Bari, return to Naples and spend the rest of the days there …

The third option is to go 7 days by car. Renters give a discount from the week, so this option can be quite budget-friendly, especially in November…

In the neighborhood of 15 bus trips a day is that bad transportation? With an itinerary like that you don’t have to take a car at all, you can get from Bari to the targeted cities just fine by OT.

There was no question of any relocation other than going from Naples to Bari, which was the answer. And the author of the question doesn’t seem to be planning to move every day, clarifying where best to make a base for outings:

Yes I do not pull anything, we have a specific person asks about a specific route, and you in this context begins to discuss the benefits of OT, although it is not at all in the cash here, based on the ratio of the author’s wants and the available time.

Will not move – nothing will have time, it’s kind of obvious. And here, of course, the most logical is to start cutting the route under the OT, since so lucky and you can get from Naples to Bari by 17 buses.

And in my opinion, that so, so – a race to check the boxes. And when the desire to embrace the immensity will be cut down to reasonable limits, we can look at what is more profitable and convenient to perform the updated route.

An Italian bus is nothing like an Italian train. You can ride it of course, but you won’t have any fun. But that’s IMHO…

I don’t see the race… Matera is half a day, Alberobello is also half a day… There’s even evenings left for Bari… 2 or 3 days for Bari, the rest for Naples…

I, despite the offtop, will still ask: have you ridden it? I do not really understand why a direct double-decker air-conditioned bus Marinobus with cushioned seats and a bathroom on board (and I even had a place with a table) is worse than the train with a transfer?

Actually convenience, it’s not just seats and air conditioning, it’s ticketing, boarding with luggage, stop location…

Suitcase instead of trying to fit it anywhere (there are no separate luggage compartments in the regionals) in the luggage compartment of the bus.

I didn’t stow it anywhere. I’m 168 in height.

I got on in Naples and got off 3 hours later in Bari. I didn’t have to pull my suitcase out of the car in Caserta and drag it onto the next train (all of which took an hour longer than the bus), worrying about being late (because from Caserta it was already freccia).

If it had been more convenient to take the train, I would have taken the train, but on this particular stretch the bus was much more convenient and profitable.

Totally agree that it’s more advantageous, and I have a different opinion about convenience. I found the car to be more convenient than the bus on this route .

Italy itinerary in 7 days: cities, attractions, and prices

Siena

This is the column “Cities of Italy” with you. Today we give you a brief, but very useful guide to the 7 best Italian cities. If you stay 1 night in each of them and travel by rented car you will manage quite well in 7 days. A little nerve-wracking, but very productive.

Okay, okay, the title of this article is aimed at arrogant tourists. They see no obstacles, drive fast, and take pictures on the run. When they look back at the sweetheart cathedral or castle, they rush behind the wheel and drive on to “see everything.”

If you’re not that kind of person, just pick a few cities from the list and linger in them for a few days. Or stretch our 7 cities over 2 weeks, for example (if you have a big vacation).

In general, you are free to reshape our guide as you like. We’ve done our best to put together the best sights and tricks to make it easier and more economical for you to travel.

What to see when going to Denmark

Soak up the grandeur of Rome.

St. Peter's Basilica Rome

If you approach the sightseeing of Rome automatically, you’ll see it as a labyrinth of ornate streets with a thousand sights that will have you tired by lunchtime.

So the main advice is to stick to your daily routine and plan what you are going to see. Choose the things that make your heart sink, rather than all the items from the tourist guide. After all, it’s not a race, but an acquaintance with YOUR Rome. With the kind that only you can see.

About the mode of the day. From 08:00-11:00 it is better to see the sights, eat and walk, and after 15:00 – look at the churches (they have a break for lunch). By the way, here is a useful article about what time what opens and closes in Rome.

From 11:00 to 16:00 there are a lot of tourists in museums and main points. During this time, we suggest taking a leisurely walk through the center and sitting in a nice cafe or pastry shop. Here’s a list of places to eat in Rome.

Discover the shining secrets of Naples

Naples

Naples has a bad reputation as Italy’s second most dangerous city, after Sicily. But that doesn’t detract from its cultural, historical and architectural importance.

Fans of classic Italian cinema (“Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”, “The Camorrist”) will recognize in the city many places from the movies.

Tip: Walk around more and try the local food. The sights in Naples are not as important as the atmosphere and multifaceted flavors of Neapolitan cuisine.

Feel free in Positano

Positano

Small and atmospheric Positano is a very beautiful and very expensive place for a romantic trip or family vacation.

But, what’s nice, rooms with sea views are available in different price ranges. In general, in Positano it is worth contemplating, not photographing. We advise to visit the observation decks, they are halfway to the peaks of the local mountains (you will have to strain to get there, but the views will pay off!).

If you get carsick on the mountain roads, forget the serpentine, it’s very steep and long. It’s better to take a ferry from Salerno. And between towns on the Amalfi Coast it’s better to travel by boat cab.
