Naples in December

Wanted to know if visiting Naples in late December is a good idea.

Ideally would like to spend 3 days in Naples visiting Almafi cost and the Pompei ruins in that period and then go to Venice by train via a few hours stop in Rome.

Is that this practical to do ?

Thanks

The Amalfi coast is not all that close to Naples. It's at least a 1.5 hour trip from Naples to Positano. In addition in Dec most of the Amalfi coast is shut down for winter.

Vencie is a really long way from Naples and not practical in a 3 day trip. it will take all day to get there.

Pompeii is only 40 min fron Naples on the Circumvesuviana train

Thanks. I was planning of 3 days in Naples and then 3 days in Venice and make a half day stop over in Rome en route to Venice. What is the average temperature in Naples in December.

I was in Naples last December/January for a week - it was wonderful. The weather was exceptionally good - about 18-22 degrees most days and bright sunshine with one day of drizzly rain. It's a great time to go especially to see the famous nativity street of San Gregorio Armeno in the historic centre and the many nativity scenes in the churches. Naples really knows how to party - New Years' Eve was spectacular.

Naples to Rome on the fast train takes a bit over and hour and it's three hours to Venice from Rome so you're looking at about 4-5 hours travel but the trains are very efficient and make it a very easy way to travel.Some pictures of Naples in December are here:
