How to Get to the Amalfi Coast (and not go completely crazy…)

Let me tell you a little story about my first journey to the Amalfi Coast.  My friend met me in Rome.  Easy enough. We stayed two nights.  Did our thing- Spanish Steps, Vatican, Trastevere.  Drank too much Frascati, woke up one morning hungover and it was time to take the train to Naples and continue onward to the Amalfi Coast.  Feeling plucky, we decided to take the Freccia Rossa high speed train. We had tramezzini sandwiches and little bottles of prosecco to wag a hair out of the dog or whatever it is they say about drinking more alcohol to cure drinking too much of it. In spite of the fact that we seemed to be approaching our upcoming holiday with the same mental fortitude as a harem of spring breakers in Panama City, I was feeling pretty good about how the day was going.
