- Rome was superb - way beyond my expectation for sights, interest, friendliness, art, history ...... Herculaneum well worth a visit (we didn't get to Pompeii). The Amalfi coast was beautiful and worth a day or 2 trip away. Skip Sorrento unless you stay in one of the posh cliff top hotels with a view of Naples.
Driving in Rome was challenging but fun. From Naples southwards it was significantly more manic -eg traffic lights not working, narrow & winding roads - even on the motorway. Don't drive unless you feel confident, are tolerant and are prepared to adapt.
