    Explore the Amalfi coast from here


    If you're on a budget and you want a base from which to explore the area of the Amalfi coast, Naples, Pompeii etc, you couldn't really do better. We rented a small cabin with shared bathroom for 20euros a night between 2 of us, for four nights, and it was great value. They have a shop, bar and restaurant on site, for nights when you're too tired from sightseeing to walk into town, there's a swimming pool, a private beach, and they do also arrange tours, like boat trips to Capri. A buffet breakfast at the restaurant is included in the price of the cabin.

    It's an easy 30 min walk from town, although there is a bus (though not a very frequent one we found!). The views of the bay of Naples from the site are stunning. We'd definitely stay there again.

Perfect base if on a budget


The campground is situated between the beautiful Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast. It is an oasis of peace with luscious vegetation, olives, lemons and oak trees, complete with a spell binding view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvio.

It is close to Sorrento, situated just 1.5km from the city centre and well connected with public transport to reach various places of interest such as Pompeii, Positano, Amalfi, Naples and Capri.

I stayed in 3 various types of accommodation whilst there for approx 2 weeks. First a tent - Way too hot for July and very small, but fine if you just want to put your head down for a few nights. Then I stayed in a cabin which was much better as it had electricity and proper beds. and thirdly we stayed in a tent/cabin which was also fine. All the facilites were adequate for what you needed. The shared bathrooms were large and clean and never too busy. There was a shared kitchen between each 8 cabins so you could cook food and store drinks in the fridge if you wanted.

The shop in the grounds sold evrything you could possibly think of and even sold international stamps so you can send postcards back home.

The Pool was lovely, although you woudl have to pay 2 euros each to use it in high season, but if you wanted to treck down to the sea there was plenty of rock face to lie on all day and steps to walk in to the sea. really nice day just relaxing and watching the boats sail past and for the adventurous you can jump off the cliffs!

Camping Sorrento

by eileen1

Hello I am a dilema on the campsites. I have looked at the Nube d'argento and the Santa Fortunata campsites and would like to know does anyone know which is the best. also I think on the other side of Sorrento there is a holiday village does any one know about that. many thanks

RE: Camping Sorrento

by metteks

We stayed at Nube d'argento. It was a nice place. It is situated on a mountainside, so the places to pich tents are on a kind of terrasses, which gives you more privacy as the tents aren't that close together.

It is a little outside town, in fact it is between the towncenter and the harbour/beach.

Camping in Sorrento? ( or anywhere in Italy)

by Florida999

Has anyone stayed at Santa Fortunata campground cabins in Sorrento? Did you have a good experience there? I am about to put a deposit on a camping cabin for us there, and am a little nervous about it. I looked at various travel review sites and found a variety of reviews from very good to very bad. Not sure if the bad ones just came from people that....expected a 5-star hotel accomodation while staying at a campground, or if they had a legitimate reason to complain ( they ranged from dirty, to bugs, to loud, nothing unusual for a campground, or is it?)
We have never camped in Italy at all, so any information of what to expect would be great, even if in a different campground


Re: Camping in Sorrento? ( or anywhere in Italy)

Haven't camped in Sorrento but would advise you to always ignore the best and worst of reviews for any accommodation.

Unless review placement is limited only to those who have booked through the site and completed their stay.....i.e. being solicited by direct email after the stay is over.... there are far too many other agendae which result in v good/v bad reviews (not least reviews posted by competitors and family friends!).

Go with the median review. If most people seem happy enough, that's probably about right.

There are always bugs when you camp (and the potential for noise from oter campers). Would be foolish to expect otherwise..but people so often do.

The campsite is quite a way outside Sorrento itself, but does have a good bu service.

Lol! Too late, I did it....I suppose we;ll see! I don't worry so much about crappy lodging, ( hey , I don't have to live there permanently! Plus, I can be happy in a tent) , I always worry about NO lodging. This hasn't really happened to us , but it's probably on a matter of time.

But thanks:)

I thk it will be fine, personally.

Take earplugs (wax ones are best) and insect repellent. But you'd do that anyway, yes? :-)

Re: Camping in Sorrento? ( or anywhere in Italy)

by Florida999

I sleep with earplugs here at home in Orlando. We have planes flying over the house constantly at night, plus sirens, plus I hear the train whistle 3 miles away.....I find myself sleeping MUCH better in ANY campground usually than at home.
But yeah, wouldn't dream of going camping without bugspray.

I love my earplugs when I'm travelling (and at home, when I want to sleep in). They're brill! :-)

Travel Tips for Sorrento

A touch of elegance

by Callavetta about Caruso

Caruso's is at the edge of the old town of Sorrento, just adjacent to the stairs that lead down to the waterfront. The cozy restaurant is very elegant and dinner there is a long affair. Our visit was toasting our last night of a wonderful week in Sorrento so we celebrated with a nice bottle of prosecco. The food was fabulous. The service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was very special. My primi of crab ravioli was extraordinary. The home made ravioli were melt in the mouth delicious and one of those dishes I will never forget!

Photos and memorabilia of the famous tenor adorn the walls.

Church of Carmine

by mallyak

It is believed that the church of Carmine dates from between 230 and 240 AD., a time of persecution for Christians in Sorrento. It was rebuilt towards the end of the 16th Century and now has a Baroque style. This is a single nave church with an image of the Madonna which is a duplicate of the ‘Vergine Bruna’ of Naples. There are plenty of lovely paintings here from the 17th and 18th centuries as well as two fine inlaid wood reliquaries which date back to 1600.

Vesuvius Vist

by sandysmith

Its possible to take a coach trip up here - although not right to the top, for that you have to climb the last bit. Its quite something to be able to walk partly down into the crater, to smell the sulphur and feel the heat in the rocks there. A few weeks later back home there was a report of someone slipping into the crater to their death - so please be careful.

Update 2003 - you can no longer walk down into the crater amd the rim is protected by a rope chain - its obviously a danger so don't be tempted to go down there.
Check out my Vesuvius page for more pics and info.

Serene Sorrento

by ming_ginger

An hour away by train from Naples city, it's a refreshing getaway from the maddening crowd in Naples city. Just unbelievable the the change in environment can be so great in a short ride away. Monastery, quaint little bed and breakfast, lemon groves, dazzling green waters, the whiff of fresh air on the face in the early morning - everything is so goody good - the perfect contrast to the pollution, lawlessness, chaotic nature of Naples City....only thing is you may be bored if the stay is too long because the town area is pretty small and rather quiet in the evenings...still if you are in Naples city, go to Sorrento to feel the contrast of these 2 places....
