We had an early start this morning, with a pick up from the hotel at 7am. We have begun a two night, three day tour of the south of Italy. This morning we drove to Naples and had a walking tour of the city centre. The city seems to be a strange mix between ancient, retro and modern buildings, which I didn't like very much. It's certainly not as …
beAUTIFUL! If you have the chance visit Sorrento! We had the best time here! After a stop at Vesuvious, we made our way to the exact opposite of Naples!
... s Saturday or how it looks every day. We took some time to wander the side streets with their little shops, but felt we were swimming against a tide of people, with almost everyone walking
back down into the town centre! It was like walking the streets of Sydney at peak hour, heading away from Town Hall station!
We eventually gave in to the crowds and sat down to enjoy a lunch of salad and Panini. Of course, ...
... show based on the Tarantella dance with its roots in Southern Italy. It was 4 scenes depicting daily life in Sorrento set to music and dancing. It was fun and you couldn't help but get up caught up in the music.
So that pretty much sums up the last few days in Sorrento. I wish I had a little bit more time here, I didn't expect to love it so much. But alas, we are off to Roma for the last few days of this holiday. Ciao for now!
Another day of travel in Italy and it was pretty fun! Had a wander around Firenze in the morning - beautiful day and lots to see, Basilica, markets and lots of interesting shops. Train left Florence noonish and we arrived in Naples at about 3pm. Only one more train to the Amalfi coast but... Train strike today! So we ended up cramming ourselves in a little taxi ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Capodimonte Sorrento
Having recently returned from a 7-day stay at the Capodimonte, I wanted to recommend this hotel to others. The Capodimonte is situated in a wonderful location with excellent views over the Bay of Naples. Please be sure to book a room with a view - we had a standard room which faced the cliff and had to upgrade our room for a sea view which was worth every penny. The Hotel is run to a very high standard with very friendly and courteous staff. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The food is excellent and plentiful with a wide choice but as you would expect is mainly Southern Italian dishes. If you don't like tomatoes you might have considerably less choice. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Sorrento town (5 minutes) and here you will find a wide choice of shops with some excellent restaurants. The hotel is built into the side of a cliff and you navigate the hotel via a series of lifts. Taking the stairs for any distance is only for the extremely fit and there are some floors to which there appears to be no access other than by lift. Overall the hotel provides excellent value for money.
Stay at the Capodimonte
With wonderful views over the Bay of Naples,first class restaurant service and food and the best air-conditioning in any hotel I have visited,our holiday was fantastic.I would recommend the Capodimonte to anyone.
Icing on the cake
October 2003 stayed at the Grand Hotel Capodimonte and found it to be just perfect. The food was great, the staff very friendly and as for the view of the bay of Naples from our room... incredible. It is also a good base for everything. It is a 3 minute walk to the centre and it is not on a hill. We fell in love with Italy and will be back. Oh yes, one other important fact..The local train station is about 10 minute walk away and it is easy to travel to Pompei, Herculeum / Mt Vesuvius, Naples by public train.
What a lovly holiday
I had a great 7 days at thew hotel grand Capodemonti, sorrento italy. My sekf and my girl freind enjoyed every moment, the food was very good inthis hotel and the service excellent, if yuou want to go for a tipical Italian Pizza or meal just a small taxi ride to the El Condor Pizzeria, in the Piano de Sorrento area will give you a small break from the half board basis in the hotel but every thing is in this hotel and you are only 2 minutes from the town centre of Sorrento, take up the offers at this hotel from your rep for guided tours to Pompi, Capre Island ,and Versovias Volcano.My girlfriend and I had a great time and will return to this fantastic place.
Wonderful Sorrento, Wonderful Hotel.
Grand Hotel Capodimonte is situated in a wonderful location with excellent views over the Bay of Naples. The Hotel runs to a very high standard with very friendly and courteous staff. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The public rooms are spacious with plenty of seating areas for meeting new friends.
The five pools and surrounding gardens are outstanding along with the terraces at the front of the Hotel.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel to friends and family. We certainly hope to be able to return in the future.
What can I say, everything was perfect. We actually got married in Sorrento and would recommend it to anyone! We paid extra for a sea view but wow we got our monies worth. We had a very large room with a balcony overlooking the bay. There was 6 of us who flew over for the wedding (organised by First Choice). We couldnt ask for anything more perfect.
The food was great! The portions were huge. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much for them.
What can I say, we will definately be going back in the future - for our anniversary!
Our first visit to Italy was in 1996 when we stayed in Tuscany. When deciding on our summer holiday for 1998 we were told that Sorrento was a lovely place so my fiance and I took the Travel Agents advice and booked the Capodimonte for August 1998. We enjoyed it so much that we returned again, for our Honeymoon, in August 2000; again in August 2002; and we have again booked to return to this wonderful hotel at the end of July 2004. Sergio, the wine waiter (I think!)even recognised us in 2002 and it was nice to see that some of the original staff were still there. The service is brilliant, the food is excellent; the location is spot on for the local amenities and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble. I could not visit Sorrento and stay at any of the other inviting hotels. On the odd occasion that it rained on an evening, rather than being able to eat outside on the terrace, the hotel quickly arranged for the breakfast dining room to be used, thus reducing the waiting time to eat and they worked extra hard to accomodate all their extra guests in the bar area. The places to visit around Sorrento are lovely and no doubt we shall be visiting some of these again, in particular Capri and Naples and our lunches will once again be spent in the nearby ice-cream parlour, Bougainvillea. The only negative points are that you have to get up early to reserve a sunlounger around the pools and the cost of the supplements for a sea view room etc. As it seems that we tend to stay at the hotel every other year, please let this continue for the forseeable future!

Having just spent a week at this Hotel for my Daughters wedding I can honestly say that it is by far the best Hotel I have ever stayed in..Service was exellent as was all facilities and meals..Breakfast was worth waking up for and Dinner was just the correct amount but if you wanted more then what was on your plate then salad and veg was available which you helped yourself to..Cannot fault it and cant wait to go back
The Capodimonte Hotel, Sorrento, is situated within five minutes walk of the Centre. The hotel itself is excellent in all areas and lives up to its five star rating. There were several choices for each course on the menu, and breakfast was buffet style with a wide choice from toast to a full English, fruit, cereal etc. and omelettes cooked to order.Because of where the hotel is situated most rooms have an excellent view and no need to pay the supplement for a view, which can be very expensive, especially as you are not in your room for a lot of the time.A majority of the trips can be done independently although we did an organised trip to Mt. Vesuvius for a half day, which was quite dusty but worth the 2hr round trip. You can get to Pompeii by train for 7euros return for two people; Isle of Capri for less than 50 euros for two, including the trip to the summit which was breathtaking. Do not miss the Amalfi coastal trip, again this was breathtaking and a wonderful day and was well worth the 25 euros each. Was not impressed with Naples which we accessed by Jetfoil, again much cheaper than organised trips. If you obtain timetables for the various transports, most destinations accessible easily and much cheaper than the organised trips.We enjoyed temperatures of over 100degrees for the beginning of June which was exceptional and fortunately the hotel had air conditioning. Some of the hotels do not put air conditioning on until the end of June.I hope other travellers enjoy the Hotel Capodimonte like us, but obviously each to their own taste.We were told about a bar called the Foreigners Club which overlooked the bay (just at the back of Tasso Square, centre of Sorrento), and well worth the visit. The drinks were cheap, some of the locals visited, there was music and dancing. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.Enjoy yourselves as much as we did - we were there for a week but did everything possible even with the high temperatures.J. Eden.
