I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
... an actual tour guide showing a couple around and listened in until he lead us to a display in the orc*********** where casts of village people who were caught in the lava were displayed. I had been told previously that most artifacts had been removed from the site and placed in a museum in Naples. This proved correct and all that is now within the site is remains of buildings. These remains date back 2000 years to BC and I believe were preserved by the molten lava ...
... came down prob around 350BC. A thriving port city of. Around 22000 inhabitants by the time Vesuvius had something to say on the matter. Vesuvius is and has been for a long time a very active volcano, and had erupted fairly frequently, although with really major eruptions only every 2000 years or so. The last major eruption prior to the one that wiped Pompeii off the map, had done the same on the other side of the mountain in the early Bronze Age. The ...
... so have lots of space! Walked around a little this arvo, the view from the Main Street is spectacular! Had dinner out at a restaurant overlooking the whole bay, which was incredible - the outlook that is (dinner wasn't too bad either!). Walked around a bit more after dinner, everything seems to be open at night rather than in the afternoon, lots of people! Looking forward to the next few days here - think we are going to enjoy!!! xoxo ...
... so unless you are familiar with the line and read the stations it could take ages to cotton on you were on the wrong line. Another issue is there are no intersects on the circum line so you would have to come back to start to get on the right line.
Ok, next train was just as full, we ran from carriage entrance to carriage entrance down the platform with our heavy bags to no success as the trained squeezed its doors shut and with a whistle off it went. Pooh! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Monica B&B Sorrento
Incredible service, incredible views
We stayed at the B&B Villa Monica five days, and we really enjoyed it.
The house is located in the hill over Sorrento, and offers you perfect views of the coast of Naples and the gorgeus Vesubio.
And don´t forget the breakfast, that gives energy for the whole day.
The shuttle service they offer allowed us to visit the area by train or ship.Sorrento is a perfect place to visit Pompei, Naples, Capri and the amalfitan coast, with the incredible town Positano. Pascuale takes you to the city center in the morning and picks you up right after dinner. Five stars service for the price of 3 stars rating.
Great Hospitality, Fabulous Views
Villa Monica is perched high on the hills above Sorrento with stunning views over the Bay of Naples and beyond. The views alone make the stay here worthwhile. In addition, Pasquale provides warm and friendly service. Rooms are simple and charming and great value for money for this part of Italy.
If you are looking peace and quiet with amazing scenery then Villa Monica should be your first choice location from which to explore the delights of Sorrento and the spectacular Amalfi coast.
Villa Monica is an excellent place to stay in Sorrento - comfort, cleanliness, view, price, and Pasquale's assistance all make it so. My wife and I were in Italy for the whole month of Oct and stayed either with family or in apartments we had previously rented. Villa Monica was a new experience and we highly recommend it. We drove and had little difficulty finding it but you should have had some experience driving in Italy, especially narrow roads and steep climbs. Pasquale apologized that he was serving only an Italian breakfast and not an American one. We reassured him that we were in Italy and wanted to experience Italy and not recreate home. Pasquale was of immense help from driving and picking us up at the train when we needed it to recommending ristoranti and pizzerie to having wonderful discussions about Italian politics, calcio, and regional differences(north vs south). Pompeii is easily reached by train, and the Amalfi Drive is also very close by and a wonderful day trip. We agree with Pasquale that you should drive it yourself if you go during the off season. Paestum is also easily reached by car.
Go for it!
Villa Monica is a great place to stay in Sorrento. The view is spectacular. The rooms are excellent, immaculately clean and the attention of the proprietor makes the experience that much better. There's nothing like a continental breakfast on the terrace overlooking town and sea. Their website has some great photos - ---.
The Villa is high above town and requires driving on some steep roads to get to. But all of Sorrento peninsula is like it. The owner, Pasquale drove us to town and picked us up on an ideal schedule. The best way to get there is by train and Pasquale will pick you up. His attention to detail in running the place, recommending eating places and personal assistance helped make our stay (5 days) most enjoyable. We would definitely stay there again.
Villa Monica hat uns davon überzeugt, daß Service, Individualität und eine besonderes schöne Lage einander nicht ausschließen müssen. Pasquale ist äußerst bemüht, jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen, selbst Sonderwünsche zum Frühstück werden von ihm berücksichtigt. Das hat uns wirklich ganz positiv überrascht. Wir haben zwei nebeneinander liegende große DZ mit tollen Blick von der schönen eigenen Terrasse gebucht. Einziger Manko: am nebenliegenden Gebäude wurde rund um die Uhr gebaut, auch eine echte Nachtruhe war vor 23 Uhr kaum möglich --- doch dafür kann Pasquale nicht.
The best in Italy
We traveled a month in Italy and Villa Monica was the best. We wanted to stay only few days but stayed a week. Is located in the hill and not only the view is breathtaking but the hosts are exceptional. Pasquale is doing everything to make the guests feel at home. The rooms and bathrooms are large and the balconies have a wiew!!!!!
Non si sa da dove iniziare ..... Posto incantevole circondato dal verde con vista sul meraviglioso golfo e a poca distanza dal centro di Sorrento coniuga appieno la tranquillità della collina dove si trova con la frenetica vita del luogo, facilmente raggiungibile offre la possibilità di riposare in tutta tranquillità e di dedicarsi al mare e allo shopping o di visitare le bellezze che la circondano .Le camere perfettamente arredate e pulite sono dotate di tutti i confort che, abbinate con la simpatia e la ottima capacità organizzativa della proprietà ,ti fanno sentire davvero come se fossi a casa tua. Davvero una esperienza fantastica ......
What add in more to how much I dictate in object? has been my first time to Sorrento and I think that I could not have found a better arrangement.a Wonderful place, a view as that of the postcards; the thing that is più liked me and my wife, it has been the hospitality of the two young proprietary and shopkeepers Pasquale e Monica. After two days with their as be with some old friends or parents;has been as be our home, on the contrary better.We make all that we wanted. the rooms are accepting indeed and clean; really delicious breakfasts, Brioches and cakes are very fresh, done by the Monica father's; more famous artist of Sorrento.That luck which we have had!a little piece of advice to everybody. renting a car is not necessary ,because the mythical Pasquale will there come to catch you everywhere be and he takes wherever you want to go.this he say Because besides to be very expensive the cars, finding Villa Monica is not easy and difficult enter the very narrow road to reach the house.This is the only negative side in fact, but not for everybody. The experience has taught me that the best places , cheap and exclusive, they are really the hidden and difficult to reach ones.There are luckily these fora that they allow everybody of not well-known wrong.I have known Villa Monica in a forum of journeys to the Italian one and all what they had written was true.So, I now I want to do a gift to you everybody.but the best gifts will certainly make them to you Pasquale and Monica.Thanks for heart to have made a memorable holiday pass to us.we are a couple than travel often always changing destination, but I consider that a holiday to Monica villa we will grant it to us every time it will be possible.goods holidays to everybody. Mel & Jessica.
My family have just returned from the Villa Monica in Sorrento and all I can say is what and excellent holiday we had.
The accomodation itself is truely beautiful and I can highly recommend the balcony rooms ours looked out over the bay of Naples, and there is nothing nicer than enjoying the sunset with a nice bottle of local wine, Pasquale the owner made not only me but the children feel very welcome and was more than accomodating, providing us with lots of usuful information about the area and local resturants, as well as providing a bit of a taxi service himself.
This was our first time in Italy and trust me it will not be the last..
Me and the wife booked this villa and didnt know what to expect but we were absolutley amazed when we got there,
this place has the most amazing views over the bay of Naples
if you go there it' s worth booking the room with balconies as you will be addicted to sitting on the balcony with a nice bottle of wine.
the owners are very very nice and very accomodating.
it was all so romantic , we have had one of the best holidays ever .
I love Sorrento....
