    You are amazing!!!!! I am so overwhelmed and your articles simplify things so well. Thank you!

    Do you have ideas for a 12 day trip in early September for a couple who loves History, Music, Food, and nature? We definitely want to see Rome, Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, but is one more city or town a possibility for a 12 day trip? Thank you so much.

      Thank you Lindsay! I’m so glad you found my site helpful! I think you can definitely add another city in that time frame. I’d recommend at least 3 days in Rome, though there’s so much to do there you could easily spend more. If you like food, I *highly* recommend taking a food tour in Rome. We visited Pompeii on a day trip from Naples, but I wasn’t impressed with Naples, so you could go from Sorrento or somewhere along the Amalfi Coast (though it will be an early morning depending on how far out you stay on the coast). The advantage of staying in Sorrento is that there’s a train, but it’s technically not the Amalfi Coast, so I still recommend going down there for a few days. I found Amalfi Town and Positano to be overly crowded, so consider staying in one of the other nearby towns. Maiori was nice, still had plenty of hotels and restaurants and a beach, and it’s only a few towns over (short bus ride) from Amalfi Town. Ravello is also nice, but it’s up the hill, not directly on the coast. It’s worth taking the bus up there from Amalfi Town for an afternoon for the views. As for another place to add to your itinerary, you could go to Florence or Bologna. Bologna is well known for its excellent food. I think adding one of those to your trip would be good.

      Hi Nuala! I’m not a travel agent, so I can’t help you with booking anything. I suggest doing some google searches for the Walk of Gods specifically and see if you can find more info about how to do it. I haven’t done that hike, so I don’t have any info to offer you, sorry!
