Hi, We are going to be in Rome at the end of July. We decided to spend a few days in Sorrento and will go to Pompeii or Herculaneum and do the Amalfi coast. Our travel agent recommended that we stay off the train between Naples and Sorrento and take a private car instead. She said the train from Rome to Naples is okay - we have a 2nd class reservation, but really did not like the Naples to Sorrento portion. We were wondering what everyone thought of the local train? It would be much cheaper, but I think I've read that there wouldn't be any air conditoning and maybe not even any available seats. We will have some big suitcases also. Thanks for your help.
