I was thinking of leaving Chiusi around 12.30, getting to Naples around 4. Checking in luggage at left luggage then going for a bit of a walk for about two hours, getting pizza along way, then coming back to get Circumvesuviano and SITA to Positano.
Then after five nights at Positano I thought we'd stop at Pompeii, check luggage, spend a few hours, then continue onto Rome.
Pros: No backtracking - yay
Cons: At (particularly) Naples and Pompeii we will be somewhat rushed plus checking luggage in at left luggage is always kind of annoying.. we will be sightseeing without a home so will have valuables and passports etc on us.
Now I'm wondering if we should just get to Positano asap and then get the ferry back to Naples for a half day, then do Pompeii in the afternoon then head back to Positano.
Pros: Less stress, no checkign luggage at left luggage, more time in Naples, can we get the ferry there?
Cons: I hate backtracking!
So then I thought I could go with option 2 and then go via Salerno to offset the backtracking and see something different on the way (eg the Salerno to Positano ferry or the two busses). If we can get the ferry this might be nice, but then... we are actually staying at Fornillo so the bus is better? So many factors and so much information, and so many opinions, so many posts, I'm exhausted!
