In a few days my wife and I will be heading to Italy and the bay of Naples. We will be based at a hotel about half way between Naples and Sorrento. As this is our first time to this region it will be something of an adventure.
Obviously we plan to do the major sites, like Vesuvius, Pompeii (and/or Herculaneum). A day trip up and down the Amalfi Coast road, probably a day trip to the island of Capri as well as the Sorrento peninsula and Sorrento itself.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions with regard to any other “must see’s” or “must do’s” .
We will be out there for 10 days and have a hire car so can get around a bit.
We are not museum buffs, nor are we into adventure sports. We do like nice scenery and gentle walks, interspersed with a bit of food and wine.
So come on, hit me with your best shots. What are the less known about, perhaps less touristy things we should be considering ?

Buon Viaggio 🙂
Thank you. I have had a quick look this evening and the blog looks very useful.
happy to help 🙂
I have never been there, doubt I will ever get there, I hope you have a wonderful trip
Thank you. Hopefully I’ll take a few pictures that will do the area justice and be able to post them for all to see.
If you can swing it, would def recommend the experience at Mamma Agata’s cooking class in Ravello. It’s quite expensive, but it’s one of the most memorable things I’ve ever done.
Not this trip, perhaps on a re-visit. We brushed past Ravello on our way back to the hotel after driving the Amalfi Coast road. Up there in the mountains it rained continuously and the clouds blocked all the fabulous views that we were anticipating. Thanks for visiting and commenting too.
