We have booked a hotel for 8 nights at the end of September and want to make four daytrips on alternating days. The in between days will be "unplanned" to leave us room to relax around the pool, at the beach or just stroll around town, shop or sit and have a drink at a restaurant patio.
The four daytrips we like to make are:
- Amalfi Coast by public bus, tour bus or ferry
- Herculaneum or Pompei by train (plus maybe Vesuvius)
- Naples Centro Storico by ferry
- Capri by ferry.
Weather depending, the daytrips will likely be on Tue, Thu, Sat and Mon. My question is: Which of these trips is best taken on the weekend? Is there any difference in crowds in town or on public transit between the weekend or weekdays? I.e. locals traveling to and from work? Weekend tourists?
Second question: If you would visit only one of the Pompei and Herculaneum sites, which would you deem the more interesting of the two? And why so?
Thanks so much. I already learned much from this forum.
