Italy is an easy country to tour, and Campania is a tourist- and family-friendly destination, whatever your traveling style and needs. The bulk of your planning will be focused on prioritizing which destinations you'll visit and which you'll leave for your next Campanian vacation. Remember: The laid-back dolce vita reigns here and you don't want to put too much on your plate -- unless it's the local food.

This relaxed culture has the unfortunate (for tourists) side effect that in certain seaside destinations -- in particular Capri and the Amalfi and Cilento coasts -- many low-end hotels and restaurants close for the entire winter (usually Nov-Mar), with the occasional exception for the Christmas and New Year's holidays. This is a mixed blessing; you'll enjoy this splendid coast without the summer crowds, but your choices will be reduced.
