using a stoller/baby carriage in Sorrento/capri/Pompeii, etc....

by monicarc

Was wondering if there are lots of stairs in Sorrento, Amalfi,Pompeii and Capri, which would make having a baby stroller a hassle?? I seem to recall from a RIck Steves episode that there seemed to be a lot of stairs in Capri.

Lots of stairs everywhere along the coast, but you can weave your way on the sides of the road. When in the actual towns, having a stroller can help, but there are so many tourist on the narrow streets. I would piggyback it with a small child. cheers Tommy x

Yes, there are lots and lots of stairs. Most of the small towns DO have roads of a sort - they are really more like very, very narrow paths that don't accommodate vehicles - so some exploring via paved surface is possible but expect lots of hills. For more in-depth exploration, you will climb lots of stairs. The buses on Capri that go up the mountain to Anacapri and around the island are also tiny - a regular stroller would be a huge nuisance, if one would fit at all.

By Pompeii do you mean the ruins (Scavi)? A stroller is definitely out of the question there. Other than a few level, paved or dirt paths, the places is a maze of ancient and VERY uneven stone streets. You will want a backpack carrier there for sure. If you can manage to bring a small, lightweight, folding umbrella stroller AND and backpack, that would be best.

Sorry, I meant if you can bring an umbrella stroller and a backpack for OTHER areas around the Amalfi Coast - not Pompeii - that would be best. Sorrento should be no problem for that lightweight stroller - lots of streets and sidewalks there and you only have to take the stairs up and down to the marinas if you want to - otherwise take the buses. Still that umbrella stroller vs a larger one would be best so you can fold it up easily, and take up little room.

One more thing: Anacapri would probably be fairly easy to navigate with the little stroller. Your biggest problem there might be navigating it through the crowds around the piazza but other than that, most of the town was pretty level.

Is it one of those light portable ones... or the HUGE heavy built like a armoured vehicle kind?
If it is the light one.. bring it and save your self a sore back. You are going to be doing a LOT of walking.
This is the voice of experience. Total time of 5 months on different occasions to Europe. Having this kind of stroller was a miracle.
good luck.
BYW... you can buy them here, you just have to find the shop. Do some research and ask your first hotel where to go. It might turn out to be a small adventure in itself.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

A Taste of Tasso

by cruisingbug

Located along the beautiful Amalfi coast, Sorrento was a brief stop on our tour from Capri to Naples. We spent only a few hours here, having lunch and shopping for inlaid wood souvenirs. We ventured away from the tour bus and found ourselves in Rita's Shop (see my Shopping Tip). Such friendly people, such a picturesque town.

Shop at Santa Agata

by GUYON about Food

We avoid to buy food in Sorrento because there was no free parking and because of the prices.
We prefered to go the village of Santa Agata which was 2 kilometers from our residence. The shops were more typical and cheaper.
Only concern : the shops are open on the morning and in the afternoon only after 5PM.
But no real concern of parking at least in July. Bread : prepare the change, it is so cheap.
Pasta : a shop specialized in fresh pasta with spinach or hot pepper or tomato
Fruits and vegetables : large and delicious
Wine : the Lacrima Christi del Vesuvio at 4 euros the bottle
Limoncello : the famous lemon liquor at 9 euros the litre Cheap

A delicious menu in the heart of Sorrento

by yelyah99 about La Favorita

Apparently this place was a bit hip in its day. It's got lovely conservatory-type areas as well as an outside dining bit, it's huge and is the oldest restaurant in Sorrento. The pricing is really very reasonable. Loads of choice and great food (fairly big portions too).

Pompeii

by pecsihornet

Pompeii is a ruined Roman city. It was destroyed, and completely buried, during a catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius on 24 August 79 AD.
The volcano buried Pompeii under many meters of ash, and it was lost for 1,600 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1748.

Grape Festival

by mvtouring

The grape festival is held in Sept/Oct, just outside of Sorrento and was great fun. It was no problem getting to the festival, but to get back was a major problem as no taxi's were to be found and we had to walk all the way back to town.
