Hi, We are planning to make the most of our trip in the south. This is our plan:

18th August - Arrive in Napoli. stay night
19th - Spend the day in Naples. stay night
20th - Travel by train to Amalfi (stopping in Pompeii for half the day) stay night
21st - Enjoy Amalfi. stay night
22nd - travel to Positano, stay night
23rd - Take a boat from Positano to Capri. stay until 25th
24th - Enjoy Capri
25th - Boat to Ischia via Sorrento (understand that there is only a ferry on some days direct to Ischia?) stay until 27th
26th - Enjoy Ischia
27th - Boat to Procida in the morning and spend the night
28th - Boat to Napoli and train to Rome.

Could we please have some advise on how to book these ferry and boat trips?? Eg. Websites?
Is it possible to spend the day in pompeii on the way to the amalfi?
Is all this island hopping too much and would you suggest we just base ourselves somewhere near Sorrento and do day trips instead?

All advise and suggestions are much appreciated!

Thanks in advance :)
