I'm thinking of planning a trip to include Florence to Naples (possibly a day trip to Sorrento also)and then out to Avella to visit relatives. I wonder why Naples gets such short shrift from travel companies and even on this forum...so many people seem to be from cruise ships and want to "see Naples" in 3 hours. It seems like such and interesting place with so many things to see...I will be travelling with my niece who is an architect and has already been to Rome as have I. I thought Florence would be great for her to see. (I have beeen there and loved it.) I really want to go to Naples and then perhaps rent a car and go out to Avella where my cousins live. Do you think this is possible? If so, are there any suggestions? e.g. going to sotto Napoli or the catacombs.
