1 trip or 2 ??

by darrensunley

Hi,

I was hoping someone could recommend whether or not to try to do Pompeii and Vesuvius all in the same day, or whether to split them up into separate trips ??

Thanks in advance,
Darren

Pompeii can take anywhere from a couple of hours to almost a full day. You will have to decide...

Pompeii had a lot of think to see, I had spend four hours just see 1/4, and mount vesuvius is far way from Pompeii, but you can see from Pompeii site, Do you take a train or drive from Sorrento or Rome to Pompeii,

you can take circumvesuviana train from Sorrento or Naples to Pompeii, get off pompeii scavi.

This might depend (partly) on where you'll be staying, and how long it will take you to get to Pompei. If you're coming from Rome, well, I'd have to say do them on separate trips.

Actually, even if you're staying near Pompei, say in Naples, I think that would still be my advice....though there are folks who take one of the two-hour tours of Pompei, and that's enough for them.

As a previous poster suggested, it depends on you and how interested you are in seeing what Pompei has to offer. But my first time there (I've been 4 or 5 times now) I spent the ENTIRE day there, until they closed!

Vesuvius is still on my list!

What do you want to do with Vesuvius? Climb it? What about Herculaneum?

I would say like the others that it depends on what you want to get out of the experience. If you have limited patience with ruins and want to hike, then do them in the same day.

Definitely do them on two separate trips. On the day you "do" Vesuvius you could consider also going to Herculaneum. Btw, you should make sure that Vesuvius is open i.e. the access - when we were in the area in February, it was closed.....

Ok, thanks for all of the advice.

I'm going in September and will be staying in Sorrento (well, Sant Agnello actually) and so certainly for Pompeii was planning on getting the train there, but if people had said that it was worth it then myself and my friends would maybe look into hiring a car for a day and doing it all in the same day.

As for what to do at Vesuvius, I guess my thoughts were just to climb it and walk around the rim at the top. Is it worth it ??

Thanks,
Darren

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Discover "Marina Grande"

by longsanborn

After you get tired of exploring Sorrento town and if you have more time, you can try to make your way to the Marina Grande.

As you walk down towards the Marina Grande, you can admire along the way the old stone houses along the back lanes and alleys, see the sleepy lifestyle that seems unchanged for decades, and get blown over by the “windy”* view of the Bay of Naples from a high vintage point facing the sea.

*The wind from the sea can be rather strong (depending on what time of year you're there) but it feels fresh and clean.

The twists and turns of the paths and the descending steps that lead to the Marina Grande can be daunting for those with knee problems, but the pretty picturesque view of the Marina is worth it.

There'll be houses by the beach; there'll be fishing boats bobbing on the waters, fishermen mending their nets or talking about their catch; there are a few simple local restaurants serving the freshest seafood, with mouth-watering scents of grilled seafood wafting through the air.

Why not take a break? Order some seafood and wines, sit outdoors and enjoy the maritime scenes around you? It is totally peaceful and relaxing – just to hear the waves and to catch the lovely sunset at the Marina Grande.

Motorcycles

by GUYON

It is risky to drive a car in Sorrento and it is difficult (or expensive) to find a parking place.
So, the solution is to rent a motorcycle (noleggiare un motorino) to be free and to avoid the traffic jams.
Once, I was passed by two motorcycles, one left, one right, when I was blocked by a third one ahead which slowed down because there was a passenger.

Drive around

by solopes

One of two reasonable beaches, are not reason enough to take you out of the road.

However, you must stop here, there and everywhere, because, any place you stop, you risk to have awesome sights. So, keep on driving and stopping!

Colourful food and restaurants

Sorrento Dining

"Sorrento Dining"

Spent seven nights in Sorrento and ate here five of them. Great food and service. We had the Tourist Menu once and the food was very good. Then we started ordering off the menu and sharing so we could try as many dishes as possible. Prices were slightly below similar places in Sorrento. Located at Via Marziale 25. Come out of the train station, turn left. Via Marziale is first street on right.
