SORRENTO

by okmouse45

We are planning to arrive in Naples from Lucca (via Florence) on 9/12 and connect with the regional train. We heard that it is better to stay in Sorrento close to the train station which makes it easier to navigate to Pompeii, Positano and perhaps Capri. Any suggestions or advice of this plan would be appreciated. We hope to stay in Sorrento for 5-6 days and take day trips to the surrounding areas. Any recommendations for good, clean, safe but not pricey as 4 star hotels in the area? What other smaller citites would be a good idea to check out? We have read Rick Steve's book on Italy and have those ideas. Any "off the beaten path" suggestions? As always, thanks for any responses.

Hi,

We stayed at Meridiana, I don't think it was 4 stars but it was clean and was about a block from the train station and a 10 min walk from the town square. At any rate look at Venere.com for your hotels.

From the train station you can catch the bus for the drive up the Amalfi Coast where you can get off at Positano, Amalfi etc... We went all the way up to Ravello which was beautiful and has a villa that you can tour. It was Nov. 1st and the weather was perfect, warm, with flowers still blooming. There are also staircases that are the equvilent of streets that take you down to the water.

You can easily take the train to Pompeii, but make sure you save at least one full day to see it. Hope this helps.

We only used the train for Pompeii - did our day trip to Positano by hydrofoil, and also arrived at Sorrento from Capri by the same. If sightseeing by water as well as train, it doesn't matter as much where in town you stay - Sorrento isn't all that large to begin with.

just to get you started, here are a couple of 3-star hotels not far from the city center that are getting good reviews on Trip Advisor (our sister site):

Hi! I'm from Sorrento and work for a luxury b&b, Palazzo Montefusco Relais. It is really well located as it is right in the old town centre of Sorrento and overlooks the main street full of shops and elegant boutiques. So it is also close to the railway station of Circumvesuviana line, which a very easy and cjeap way to travel around, going to Naples and stopping also in Pompeii that is just half an hour by train from Sorrento. From the main square of Sorrento you can catch a bus going to the port to take a hydrofoil to Capri. Palazzo Montefusco Relais gives its guests the chance to have their own independence as if they were at home, but it also offers the comforts of a boutique hotel: air-conditioning, soundproof rooms, minibar, safe, a rich breakfast, excursions by boat and helicopter, agreement with a bathing establishment and so much more! If you wish to have more information, please ask me or visit the web site!
I hope this was helpful...

Cheers..

Elena.

My favorite off the beaten path suggestions for Sorrento and the Amalfi coast area are in my Sorrento page: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/b1a5a/22b9b/6/ - The spontaneous hike from Ravello down to Amalfi was one of the highlights of my vacation in Italy. Be open to anything and you will discover your own priceless memories !

Travel Tips for Sorrento

City centre and coastline

by HORSCHECK

Explore the city centre and the coastline of Sorrento. In the narrow cobbled alleyways are plenty of little shops, cafes and restaurants. A few churches, monuments and the remains of the enclosure walls are the historic sights of the town.

Train services

by SallyM

The 'Circumvesuviana' service connects Sorrento with Naples via Pompeii and Herculaneum. There is a frequent service and the journey takes about an hour.

For visiting Naples it is best to get off at Piazza Garibaldi, rather than at the terminus.

Keep an eye on your belongings.

Best place to watch the Piazza Parade

by goodfish about Fauno Bar

Is it bar? Is it a ristorante? What is it? Beats me but I know that it's a fun place for a sit-down and serves a very decent carbonara. Fauno Bar acts more like a cafe during the day but I hear that it transforms itself into one of the hottest spots in Sorrento after dark. I wouldn't know as we're early risers who have to toddle off to bed long before the wee hours. Whatever it is, this prime piece of real estate, right on Piazza Tasso, been around since the 50's and has a reputation as THE place for dressing up to "see and be seen" in the evenings.

We had collapsed at a sunny, piazza-side table for a late-afternoon beer after a long day of sightseeing and ended up having such a good time people-watching that we decided to hang around for dinner. Typical of cafe-type Italian bars, this one carries the usual light offerings of pastries (to have with an espresso or cappuccino), sandwiches and gelato but also expands into good pizzas and pasta.

The bill will probably be a bit higher than for similar venues off the piazza but not unreasonable. It's more likely to be the bar tab vs food that'll kick the cost up but it's worth it to have a front-row seat at Sorrento's living room!

Tourist attire is fine during the day but I'd spruce up considerably for the evenings. Seating indoors or out and it's closed in November. I'm not noting a PP price as it'll vary widely depending on whether you come for coffee, drinks and/or a meal. We both had pasta - no complaints

The coast

by solopes

No! Those who know the meaning of beach should spare the word in Sorrento. Of course there is sea, sand, and sun, but for that, you have thousands of better places.

The strong point of Sorrento is the glamour, the life, the ambiance...

A cappuccino break?

by Pawtuxet

These little cafes are charming and almost always serve good coffee. This one reminded me of something in East Boston....funny how your mind plays little games like that when you are travellling. Or is it me? Maybe I was on my feet too long. At any rate, my recommendation is that you stop often in these little places where you not only enjoy something scrumptious, but get another look (and feel) of the local color.
