Planning a trip to Italy for a week and want to get some feedback on the itinerary is it enough time in each destination, anything to add

Friday fly into Venice - 2 nights
(second time in Venice so don't need longer)
Sunday morning train to Rome - 2 nights
Tuesday morning train and ferry to Capri - 3 nights
Anything specific must see around Capri?
How to I get around is there public transit or I need to hire private tours to go see amalfi coast pompeii etc.?

Missing anything?

Book your ferry to capri in advance and your train tickets. Similar to airline fares they all go up as it gets closer.

Hotel Della Piccola Marina , charming hotel in Capri with nice pool and good location. Take a boat tour around the island in the morning and rent scooters one day, go to the blue grotto after it closes to boats, and swim in it. Have a beer after and enjoy the view! Worth renting the scooters for 24 hours.

How many kosher wineries are there in Italy? Are they worth visiting?

Do they have food as well? Acceptable hechshers?

Define acceptable. Neither are in the cRc list or kosher quest. They are smaller.

I visited Terra Di Seta and enjoyed it.  Hearing the routine used to make wine was interesting and the Mrs, who ran the tour, was great.
Driving there was BEAUTIFUL!  But get good directions there; we got badly lost GPSing to the wrong place.

Cantina giuliano is an amazing experience  and everything is hand made. Even the cheeses and fish are personally made/caught by the owner. He was also knowledgable in all the halachos regarding wine making and kitchen standards etc.

I will be staying in the alps in Italy or France for a week in August after that I have another 4-5 nights (over shabbos) until my flight out of Milan
Traveling with kids ages 3-9
What city would be a good option to stay in Italy that has shabbos with food nearby and hotel or apartment near shul
Going with kids so Venice is probably not a option as it will be overrun
Rome might be a option, but it's a bit far from Milan and from alps
Any ideas?

On par with mainstream US hashgochas or no?

No idea. Hard to determine standards of a local hechsher abroad.

So you should probably ask your LOR for a recommendation of someone in Italy who he trusts and go from there.

Have you come across any more info about the kashrus standards in either place?

I will be taking a train from Rome to Naples and need to get to my hotel to Capri. How far is the ferry from the Naples train station? Is it easy to find a taxi or Uber to get there or do I need to hire a driver to pick us up?
Can anyone recommend a boat tour of the Amalfi Coast and of the Capri Island? I will be there from Sunday-Tuesday.

It's about 5-10 min from the train station to the ferry. There will be tons of taxis waiting at the train station. You can find many boats around the Capri port.
