I am planning my summer vacation with my husband and two children, ages 6 and 4. We will land in Rome and stay there for three days. We plan to rent a car the day we leave Rome and go south. We'd like to see Pompei and stay somewhere in the Cilento Coast for five nights.
Here are my questions: Should we go directly to Cilento and make Pompei a day trip during our five day stay in Cilento or should we stop at Pompei before we go to Cilento? If we stop at Pompei, is it okay to leave our luggages in the car?
Where should we stay in Cilento? Castellabate, Marina di Ascea (Agriturismo Iscairia looks nice), or Marina di Camerota? I prefer shallow water for the children which would indicate Castellabate as our choice. However, I'd like them to see the grotta in Palinuro or Porto degli Infreschi near Camerota.
I appreciate any advice. Grazie mille...
