|Subject: Maratea, Italy|
Peter Thank you for the link for the Maratea area. Our Itinerary is
to arrive in Rome on a Wednesday, check into the timeshare in Maratea
on Sat and check out the following Sat, after time share to Florence
for 2 days, then travel to Kaiserslatern, Germany to visit friends
that live there, spend 2 days there and then drive with friends to
Amsterdam to finish our trip on Sat. We have a little over 3 weeks.
We are considering skipping Naples on this trip. However we do not
want to miss Mt Vesuvious and Pompeii. We have heard great things
about Salerno and would like to side trip there. This is our 1st
trip to Italy (& Europe) and when we get back my husband will be in
full time school for his Physicians Assistant so we will not be going
anywhere for 5 to 6 years. Maybe we will overnight (during the time-
share week) near Pompeii so we can visit that area. We also want to
spend some time near Florence and have some wine and do some easy
hiking in the hills. I think this is too much to do in the 3 weeks
and we will need to trim now that we are further away from Sorrento.
I do not have the timeshare details yet. Our trip is in September
2000. How long of a train ride from Rome to Maratea? I have not put
on a bathing suit in 5 years. Our interest in the beach is the fresh
seafood. We love the outdoors and the history in Italy and those are
our interests. Is a Capri side trip do-able?
