... I was back in elementary school and they had signed up to be our chaperones for the day. They explored even more ruins by finally making it to Pompeii on Saturday. I unfortunately couldn’t make it with them on this trip as I was battling a cold all week and desperately needed some time to sleep. I was very impressed with their abilities to get on the train, purchase the tickets, and discover a whole town of ruins ...

... she says to say, "bye bye", if the answer is yes.
2. If the display of gelato is heaped up above the sides of the container, "run out of there", because it has a list of additives that are making it not melt...

After this a few of us walked down the hill to Marina Piccolo and back, then went to a recommended restaurant for the pizza, I had a delicious mushroom one, brought half of it back and had it for lunch today.


My weekend at the Amalfi Coast

... we were starving. We found a cute panini place. I had turkey for the first time in a month. That's wierd for me because I eat turkey cold cuts daily at home. I also found oreos! Haven't had those in a month either. They weren't double stuffed but they were soooo good. We sat on these big stone steps to eat. Anyone who makes fun of me for loving cats skip this next part. So there are so many random cats here. I saw at least 10 in this town. This one skinny one came over to me and ...

Giovanna and Roseanna drive us to Rosarna train station in the morning. We are up early and see Carmelo and Vincenzo before they leave for work and school respectively. Carmelo gifts to me 2 clay bricks that are around 250 yrs old, they are hollow and light. I love them and hope I can get them home in one piece and through customs as well.

We drop in to see Angelina and it is a tearful farewell from everyone! We do not know when we will see her again, but ...

... with cherry tomatoes and cuttlefish for me and spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and clam for Caitlin. The kids shared a fresh buffalo mozzarella ball covered with proscuitto, cheese ravioli and gnochetti. A lovely little "snack" as I am sure a two course meal is called here! Pasta pics included below. Pasta done right. Gives me a new appreciation for how a couple ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Riviera Sorrento

    Good hotel, unlucky with the room


    Stayed in the hotel for a week, really liked it. Stunning views. Nice rooms. Good location - not central but useful when you drive into Sorrento from Naples, since it lets you avoid having to negotiate your way through the town.

    Two things let us down. The breakfast was very dull and the coffee the worst I had in Italy. Secondly, our room (large and bright) was right underneath the breakfast hall, and with those tiled floors, as one would guess, you can hear every step, every chair movement above you. And that every morning as the breakfast starts at 7 a.m.

    Fabulous staff


    Wonderful staff who really went out of their way to help satisfy a very fussy eater. Amazing views and lovely bright rooms, excellently maintained. The pool and beach area were lovely too. Full of English tourists but being one myself I didn't let that bother me!

    Personal fabuloso


    Un personal maravilloso que hizo todo lo posible por satisfacer a una persona quisquillosa con la comida. Vistas impresionantes y habitaciones hermosas, luminosas y bien mantenidas. El área de la piscina y de la playa era hermosa también. Lleno de turistas ingleses pero, siendo uno de ellos, no dejé que eso me molestara.

    Vista y personal fabulosos


    Me quedé en el GHR dos días con mi familia.

    Me encantaron la vista, el personal y las habitaciones (501 y 502). Creo que la piscina y el embarcadero son excelentes. Definitivamente volvería y lo recomendaría.

    Fabulous View and staff


    I stayed at the GHR for two days with my family.

    L-O-V-E-D the view, the staff and the rooms (501 e 502). I think that the pool and the pier are excelent and would surely come back and recommend.

    Loved the riveria


    Excellent hotel very clean and tidy. Caters for its guests very well. Pity about the yanks.

    Great View - Small Rooms


    My wife and I stayed three days in the Grand Hotel Riviera. The rooms are typical small European size, but clean and with great views. No complaints about the beds or furnishings. The bathrooms did not have wash clothes or kleenex. This is large hotel with a great lobby. The breakfast included was satifactory. It is about a 10 minute walk into downtown Serrento.

    Ok, but not great


    The service was great - the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Also has great views and a nice pier for sunning with a section for swimming in the sea. The rooms are pretty basic but clean. It appeared that the hotel caters very much to the British version of the tacky tourist who wants a watered down version of Italy. The food was more on the level of the Olive Garden but the staff does have good recommendations if you want the real thing.

    Lovely hotel, superb views, very friendly staff


    Stayed in Grand Riviera for a week after being in Rome and Venice (see reviews). Nice hotel, our room (133) had superb views over the bay of Naples out to sea, absolutely fantastic. Hotel had great facilities, loved the pool. Buffet breakfasts good, only stayed on b&b basis so don't know about the dinners. Staff were very friendly and went out of the way to do anything for you laying on taxis, arranging trips, any problems with rooms, facilities etc, airport transfers. If you are looking for a relaxing hotel with superb views and don't mind a nice walk to the town centre then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this!

    Great Hotel


    An extremely pleasant hotel, in an ideal location overlooking the bay of Naples and with excellent facilities.....I thoroughly recommend it.
