Hello! I'm going to be traveling in Italy for a month by myself! So excited! I lived in Florence for 5 months as a student when I was in college. I have visited Rome, Milan, Florence, the cinque terre and other small and beautiful spots. I was thinking I would take the trains to Naples, the Amalfi coast and then over to puglia which I have been told is beautiful.
Can anyone recommend any "off the beaten path" locations/towns for me to explore? I will be going by train. I will be there from mid-may to mid-June. Also- I was considering renting a car, but it does make me a little nervous to drive on the autostrada (even tho I battle horrendous traffic in Los Angeles everyday day).thoughts about that? When I lived there previously I just took trains....thanks for your help and suggestions!!
