    Prestige Does It All!

    by

    The Hotel Prestige in Sorrento sets the bar so high with outstanding service and staff that It is hard to imagine anything better. Just one other hotel in Orvieto was on the same level of the twelve places we stayed on our trip.

    We spent three nights at the Prestige in May of 2013 and it was not close to enough.

    We were met at the train station by their van which was right on time. The driver pointed out some sights as he wound his way up into the hills above the town.

    Waiting for us when we arrived after celebrating an anniversary earlier was a bottle of wine, fresh olives, bruscatta, and cake on our bed.

    The room on the second floor had a large balcony with a fabulous panoramic view of the town Great for sunsets and watching the movement of the hydrofoils and other boats on the water.

    The king size bed in the room was comfortable. The bathroom had a very nice shower that put out plenty of hot water. While the balcony rooms with sea view do face the street which can be noisy our sleep machine drowned out the noise and all slept well.

    The daily breakfast was excellent. it is served on a room on the ground floor. Every morning there was a great selection of meats, eggs, breads, cereals, cakes, fruit and other items. So many choices it was hard to choose. They also had excellent coffee.

    There is a great rooftop area with commanding views of the sea. Since we had such a great view of our room we did not take advantage of this option. There is also a very nice heated pool.

    What sets this hotel so far apart from others in Italy is the staff. Front desk staff are outstanding. Somehow despite many guests the staff remembers your name and greets you by name not only in the morning but as you return at the end of the day. I also saw deal with some really difficult hotel guests that were having boyfriend and transportation issues. Roberto went out of his way countless times to help me. Maria was also great.

    The hotel operates a shuttle which runs several times into the town in the morning and several times back from Sorrento in the evening. The shuttle back to the hotel starts at 5 pm. It is important to make a reservation with the front desk each time you wish a ride. Missing the last shuttle could result in a taxi ride that costs at least 50 euros from town.

    Another big plus of this hotel was the amazingly reasonable price. We paid only 80 euros a night for a great room with a super view. Nothing on our trip matched the overall level of service.

    Unique Quality: Outstanding staff set this hotel apart from others. The room is also fantastic with amazing views of the sea. Breakfast was top notch with great quality and diversity.

    Directions: Take the shuttle don't even attempt fo find it on your own

Travelling to Sorrento on Liberation day Apr 25th

by Oval7

Hi there .

My girlfriend and I are travelling to Sorrento for 3 days and are flying into Naples on April 25th . As this is liberation day will it make travelling to Sorrento difficult i.e. by train or bus ? And if so would it be worth taking a taxi directly from the airport to Sorrento even though it will be more expensive ?

Thanks for any help given .

Public transportation normally runs 365 days a year in Italy, on one of two schedules: weekdays/Saturdays, and reduced schedules on Sundays/holidays. Note that many long distance trains run 7 days a weeks; it's normally commuter trains that might reduce their schedules. Only in rare and quite rural areas do buses not run at all on Sundays or holidays (this does not apply to Naples).

Anyway, the most straightforward method is to take a through bus - see http://www.curreriviaggi.it/ and look at the "Naples Airport - Sorrento" block on the page. Hmmmn, they say they have as many as 8 buses a day now, so you'll have to see if this fits your schedule. Note that all departures listed are for 7 days a week (which would include holidays).

If this doesn't work, take the bus from the airport to the main train station (Napoli Centrale), then take the Circumvesuviana train from its station downstairs out to the end of the line, Sorrento.

http://www.portal.gesac.it/portal/page/portal/internet/inAEROPORTO/Autobus
is the airport's website and
http://www.vesuviana.it/web/en
is the train's website...

In no case, take the taxi unless it's 2 in the morning and you have lots and lots of money...

Liberation day is the day most people start to go to the beach and maybe have their first holidays until May 1st (another public holiday).
That being said, transport will run on a Sunday schedule (coincidentially the 25th this year is a Sunday) and there most likely will be a lot of traffic from people having a day out.

So, definitely train or bus and use the airport connection Bill mentioned, that would probably be the best and fastest deal.
And I do agree about the taxi, you might enjoy the money more if you spent it over a nice dinner.

Have fun

The currieri bus is an excellent service......I have used it both times I've flown into Naples.

But I would suggest you book online if you can, as you are arriving on a holiday.

Having said that, I've never seen the bus full (as I suspect it will be in high season).

Buses are timed to fit in with flights. You should allow roughly 30-45 mins to get your bags and be outside the airport. The bus departs from the stop to your left, directly opposite Arrivals...it is very clearly signed (in English as well as Italian).

If you don't want to book online, just pay the driver (best to have the right change if you can).

A brilliant service which terminates outside the Circumvesuviana station in Sorrento, about 5 mins walk from Piazza Tasso.

Butdo allow extra time to get to the airport from Sorrento on your return trip. Traffic can be very congested indeed around Naples and along the road to Sorrento.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Dogs

by leics

In Sorrento (actually, everywhere I went this trip) I learned that lots of people have dogs. And lots of people seem entirely happy to let their dogs wander around by themselves, and the dogs are entirely brilliant at avoiding cars/scooterini. I'm used to seeing cats in Italy (and elsewhere) but encountering so many dogs was a new experience (resulting in not many cats too!).

I like dogs, but am very wary of those I don't know. However, it soon became apparent that these wandering canines were not in the least bit interested in me (apart from a rather lovely one in Amalfi, who attached himself to me for a walk along the prom). Even the 'stray' dogs in Pompeii/Oplontis were not bothered; they just pootled around doing their usual doggy thing regardless of visitors.

How many dogs were 'strays' and how many simply having a good time looking after themselves I couldn't tell. Certainly not one of them looked underfed, and most of them looked pretty clean too. The dog in the photo, gazing longingly at the closed door of the butcher's shop, was just trying it on, imo!

As far as I could tell, the only thing to be wary of is what they leave behind them on pavements.

Public transport

by lynmur

In and around Sorrento there are public buses and an hours ticket is 1 euro - we got a day ticket for 2 euro 10, you can also get weekly passes.
We used the train to get to Pompeii which was cheaper than going on the organised trips 3 euros 70 return - in fact I would recommend trying to do all the trips yourself if you can its much cheaper and also gives you plenty of freedom to come and go as you please.
We took the hydrofoil to Capri for 22 euros, then the funiculor railway into Capri town - cant remember how much that was but it was defiately cheaper than doing an organised tour. You can get the all the surrounding sights on the local bus and although they do pack as many people as possible on to the buses they are a much cheaper way to get around. We were going to go to Positano and the Amalfic coast but just never got round to it but most people who did those trips did them in their own time using the public transport and enjoyed themselves just as much as doing an organised tour.

Excellent value

by hawkhead about Taverna Azzurro

Located in the Marina Grande, this is a good place to go for dinner or lunch. We were there in February for dinner and we were the only customers, although at lunch time there were several tables occupied. As the location is right in the Marine Grande, I should imagine that in summer the place is very busy and popular. The owner is hospitable and welcoming. Even with virtually no customers, all the tables were laid with cloths and cutlery and with fresh flowers. I say we were the only customers but half-way through our meal several fishermen appeared to watch the football game on the television (on but no sound) and we all had a pleasant time. Everything is freshly cooked and the helpings are large. The wine is served in litre-sized terracotta pitchers specially made for the restaurant.

The Amalfi coast

by malkin

The Amalfi coast including Positano and Amalfi is known world-wide for the sheer beauty of the scenery. Ravello is only a half an hour’s bus ride away from Amalfi and I believe is also worth the visit. The best way to see this area is by bus. Don’t bother to drive yourself, the roads really need 100% concentration from the driver and you’ll inevitably miss most of the scenery.

Easter Celebrations

by Jetgirly

I visited Sorrento on the Easter long weekend, and got caught up in the crowds during the Procession on Easter Sunday. All along Corso Italia people placed candles on their balconies, and hundreds of Church members were involved in the procession down the street to the basilica.
