trying to figure it out

My husband and i (40 somethings...) have to be in Paris early September. We are trying to plan a trip prior to Paris. we are considering Italy. We've been to Rome, Milan and Venice so would like to explore a different region. our choices are Sicily, Tuscany Region (Florence) or the Amalfi coast. We will have about 5 days. We like beach, culture, good food, nicer resorts/hotels, lots of sightseeing and tours. what is your vote?

Thanks! Happy Travels

Italy is a busy forum! there are so many regions to choose from, so this is what is confusing. how far (time wise) is florence to naples and what are transportation options? rent a car, use train, bus?

Florence to Naples is a bit under 3 hours by train: see www.trenitalia.com or www.italotreno.it

By car, it is more than 5 hours of driving (plus stops). See www.viamichelin.com

There is no bus service.

Naples is about 1.5 hours from Positano and about 2.25 hours from Amalfi; it is not that close in travel time though it is close in actual miles/kms - it takes quite a long while to reach the Amalfi Coast villages from Naples -

www.capri.net - has schedules for the boats as well as all the wonders of the island
