Rome to Sorrento

by Heleng79

Hi
Im travelling to Sorrento in May for a wedding and flying into Rome at 6pm on a Saturday evening. Im trying to work out the best way to get to Sorrento for the wedding the next day. Should I travel to Naples by train and stay overnight then make the next leg of the journey the next day? I will have been travelling since 8am that morning so very tired! If so has anyone any suggestions on a nice hotel to stay in Naples thats close to the train station or even near the harbour so I can catch the ferry to Sorrento? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

I am tired just reading it. You could stay in Rome and the next morning just take a train right into Sorrento...
cheers Tommy x

You`ll only worry about catching a train when you arrive in Rome. Well I would!

However, if it`s a morning wedding you may have to get to Naples. Have a look at www.trenitalia.com to check your options. It`s all go! :-)

Here;'s the English pages for Trenitalia, giving you train times, details and fares in English:

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

You will need to get the train from Rome Termini station to Napoli Centrale. Then you walk to the adjoining Napoli Garibaldi station (well-signed) and take the cheap, frequent Circumvesuviana train from there. Ferry is not an option at that time of night.

The Naples>Sorrento train journey takes about an hour. Timetables here;

http://www.vesuviana.it/web/en

So. In theory you could make the journey the same day:

Assuming no delays you will be out of ?Fiumicino? airport by around 7pm. Take the Leonardo Express train to Termini (35 minutes) and buy your ticket to Naples there. Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options, but it is better to use cash to avoid hassles with 'foreign' cards.

Then you can catch the 2000 or 2100 fast train to Napoli Centrale, taking 1h 10m.

There are Circumvesuviana trains to Sorrento at 2141, 2211 and 2241.

But......you will be exhausted, and still have to get to your Sorrento hotel.

So staying in Naples overnight might be a good idea. Don't even think about the ferry: find a hotel near Napoli Centrale, then you can just hop on the Circumvesuviana the next morning (it will cost you just over 3 euro).

www.booking.com is a reliable site with honest guest reviews and good mapping.

www.venere.com is also reliable and has good mapping,. Its reviews, unfortunately, are now those from Tripadvisor.

If you did want to take the ferry then here is the website:

http://www.alilauro.it/index.php?lingua=english

but it seems daft to do this when you can stay in a hotel near the station and just nip onto the Circumvesuviana next morning (and it will be cheaper too).

Travel Tips for Sorrento

THE BEST AND WORST EXCURSIONS FROM SORRENTO

by BEVVIE

One company runs all excursions in Sorrento, so there is no need to shop around.
We purchased ours from our tour operator, we felt it was safer to do it this way because we were paying by credit card and you hear so many stories about fraud these days.
The cruise along the Amalfi Coast was fantastic. You make two stops, inluding one at Amalfi and you get to see the whole of the coastline without getting travel sick from all the winding roads (providing the sea is calm!)
The island of Capri is beautiful, but see it independantly otherwise you are just hearded around with thousnands of other tourists. You rep will tell you that it is not easy to get around on Capri, however we saw planty of taxis as well as a tram that takes you from the port to the chic town of Capri.
Don't bother doing the day trip to Rome. It takes much longer by coach than they tell you and there is not much time to spare when you get there. Rome is so beautiful that you are better off doing a separate trip there. We managed to get EasyJet flights there for fifty pounds each.
The volcano and Pompeii excursion is fantastic, although toilet facitiies are not the best!
A full day at Pompeii is too much unless you are interested in history and ancient ruins in a big way. Half a day is ideal becuase there are many interesting things to see. It can also get very hot because the sun reflects off the stones on the floor.
We did not travel to Naples, but there is a train station in Sorrento where you can purchase tickets which are much cheaper than going by organised excursion, but watch out for pick pockets and people on the make at the train station in Naples.

Cheap wines and spirits

by Balam about The Pink Elephant

This shop sells Wines Beers and spirits at cheap prices. they also sell spice mixes and pasta. This seemed to be the cheapest shop and one of the friendliest, They say that you can "taste and taste till you'll really see Pink Elephants!" They sell their own Limoncello, Lemon Cream and many many others. Well worth a visit just to look around if not to purchase all your holiday drinks. Limoncello is the local drink but all products are cheaper in this shop, i purchased spice mixes and pasta as well as drinks from here at prices a lot lower than the other shops from 00.50 euro for a bottle stopper

Try the local "Pinky" wine. Excellent!

by blagarrett99 about Delphinos

A very good selection of food at extremely good prices!
This restaurant is worth finding. It is really off the beaten path. The hostess and waiters are so very helpful and friendly. Every thing on the menu is good.
This restaurant is on the end of a pier that sits in the Marina Grande, part of the Bay of Naples.
We let our hostess select our food one evening and she was right on target for our tatstes. Our evening was topped off with a Sambucca served traditionaly with coffee beans. My favorite was the fresh fish of the day, which was swordfish. The seafood risoto was excellent as well. I had the meat cannaloni one evening and it was just right for a light meal.
Every thing was freshly prepared and so reasonable!

Shopping in Sorrento and Free Limoncello

by tripc

The main activities in Sorrento are shopping, eating, and enjoying the scenery. One of the best parts of the shopping scene in Sorrento is to go around to the numerous limoncello shops and get free tastings!

Piazza Tasso

by Jetgirly

The heart of Sorrento, this bustling piazza is home to restaurants, bars, horse-drawn carriage rides, great views, tourists, locals, and more! Sit at Fauno Bar for a good, cheap aperitivo and lots of people watching, or enjoy an award-winning pizza at Pizzeria Aurora (see my Restaurant tips). From the piazza, busses connect you to the Cape and the marinas, and it is a brief walk to the Circumvesuviana stop.
