I've done it for a few years by driving Luxembourg, Switzerland down to Genoa and then getting the GNV ferry to Palermo.

Location: Carmarthen, south west Wales / Santa Maria di Ricadi, Capo Vaticano
Hi mimosas,
I travelled down six years ago calling with family friends in Paris, Provence then onto Pisa, Pompeii and finally on to Santa Maria di Ricadi near Tropea.
We were taking it relatively easy stopping off for a night or two to visit various places and archaeological sites in southern Italy eg the Amalfi coast, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Paestum.
We stayed in Pompeii, easy to navigate to the hotel rather than to stay in Naples. Trains from there easy to get to naples and Herculaneum.

I always varied it slightly, to vist places or restaurants that I'd read about or because I wanted to use up loyalty points for hotels of particular brands. Put Calais to Genoa into google maps and it will generate some alternatives for you.
