Group travel experience

I went to Italy in September with a group. We flew into Rome and drove to Sorrento and stayed there. From there, we went to Capri, Positano, Amalfi, and all the towns along the coast. It is truly one of the most beautiful areas I’ve ever seen. September was great. We toured some wineries and went up into the hills, spent time along the water, so much to see, and do. On the way home we stopped and went through Pompeii and then spent another day in Rome before flying home.

Solo travel experience

I spent 2 weeks in Italy over the summer. I did 2 nights in Naples and used this as a base to go to Rome for a day (only an hour train from Naples to Rome station). Then went to Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Capri. Sorrento is an amazing base and I did Pompeii from here. Sorrento was probably my favorite place and loved Positano as it was super pretty. I would’ve done Pompeii whilst in Naples but I would not recommend staying in Naples. My least favorite European city by far!

Solo travel experience

I did a busy Italy trip, did Naples, Rome, Florence, and Bologna all in 7 days. Wish I'd had more time in Florence because it completely captured my heart! I traveled by train everywhere I went and had no problems at all.

Solo travel experience

I did a month in Italy - started in Verona (so beautiful also did a day trip to lake Garda from here) - Venice - Florence (did a week in Florence as there was much to do see as well as tours such as wine tasting in Tuscan mountains and leaning tower of Pisa) - Rome (my favourite part of Rome was Vatican City which I got an electric scooter to from city centre was so much fun! Stayed in yellow square hostel can not recommend enough) - Naples (and Pompeii) - finished in Positano and Amalfi It was so super easy travelling through the country via train but I hired a car in Naples to do Amalfi and Positano because I found it was easier than public transport.
