there are a trains from Ciampino to Rome. it's fast and chepeast way to arrive in center of Rome.

I suggest you buy lonely planet guide about italy, it's real good guide.
I have to australia and england, and i find in all usefull suggests.

I don't know good B&B, hotel, or hostel in Rome, i never used.
best way i think it's train... but it's better than you will buy ticket very soon as possible.

it's link to only train company in italy.

I think that Rome had more things to view than Sorrento, and you must calculate how time you need to move between places that you had choice.

and 10 days it's not enaough to see all Rome eheheheh
So, try to see on web site hours in which trains will go and will arrive.

In Rome you can use simply Metro and Bus (there are some bus in night after midnight)

good travel

You might want to consider the town of Amalfi as a central location to stay for several days. From there you can take buses or tours to places like Ravelo, Paestum, Pompei, and the ferry to Capri/Anacapri/Positano. Amalfi itself has a little beach, shopping, and the beautiful Piazza Duomo cathedral/crypt. There are several hotels in Amalfi--a friend highly recommends Maison La Ninfa Bed and Breakfast. I think it is a ten minute walk to the buses. URL is www.laninfa.com and e-mail them at [email protected]

Positano is beautiful. Can't wait till I'm there again, watching the waves crash onto the shore, drinking the lemon drink =)

Just for the record, tho I'm sure it's been mentioned elswhere, the cheapest (not fastest) way into Rome from Ciampino, particularly if you arrive at a silly time when no other transport is running, is with the Terravision bus service - http://www.terravision.it/.

Whales and dolphins, whales and dolphins, yeah.

I went to Sorrento and Capri last summer, both are really nice but Capri was very expensive, so if your on a tight budget it might be better to stay in Sorrento or Almalfi and just visit Capri for a day, although if you can afford it the nightlife there is great! Also, Ischia is worth visiting for the beaches, as we only found tiny beaches where it costs about 10 euros to hire a sunbed around Sorrento.
