Thursday Day 6 - Train ROME to SORRENTO
We want to tick off all the big ticket attractions but try and group the areas into achievable daily activities. I have changed this plan a dozen times already. Why not a dozen more. Have I got the days around the wrong way ? I intend getting to all the big ones first thing in the morning to to reduce the waiting times and crowds etc.
Finally, how Crazy will the CROWDS be in Early September ? I was there once before early December and it was great.
Take care and thank you.
