You can go to Pompei, as well as Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello, but you should avoid Sorrento because there’s really nothing good there except a train station to get in and out. Life gets easy when it turns into an endless procession of risotto pescatora or spaghetti with fresh clams and the freshest vegetables you’ve ever had.
And then you go home. Depending on how you do it, this is 10-13 days. I’ve left out Umbria, the Marche, Puglia, Calabria and the other regions. Stay tuned, because I will be covering all these places very soon. But don’t expect to get enough: Italy will always leave you wanting to come back for more!!!!!!
