Travel Blogs from Sorrento
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 ...
... wheel drive bus which takes you up the side of the volcano. From there you have to walk the final 700m to the top of the crater. I cannot believe that I had chosen of all days to where my Havianas and not my Gowalk skeechers! I am very proud of my efforts walking up the side of the volcano as it was quite steep and although I stopped a couple of times (my calves were killing me!) I made it. At the top a guide explained the geological history, pointed out Pompeii, how the ...
... 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 ...
... on the menu was a 'Hello Kitty' but I chose a strawberry caprioska instead which was amazing. So amazing I think I ended up having at least 10 throughout the evening! Most people left the bar at around 11pm to catch the last public bus to the campsite but a few others stayed on with me to help me celebrate my birthday at midnight.
When the clock struck 12 two trays of shots and chocolate cake came out and everyone sang Happy Birthday to me. It ...
... Vesuvius along the way! We arrived at Pompeii around 11am and began our tour which was amazing! I had no idea Pompeii was so big! After our tour we grabbed some lunch and got to do some shopping at the stalls. Had some pizza for lunch (getting a bit sick of pizza actually!) then on the road to our stop in sorrento! The views of the coast were stunning, however i didnt appreciate playing musical chairs while winding around it! it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metropole Sorrento
My husband and I have just returned from a great holiday in Sorrento. We had made a late booking and the Metropole was the only hotel available to us. However, we were more than pleased with the hotel, the staff and the food.
This hotel was a very good choice for a mother and older daughter to stay in. Most of the staff were pleasant without being over familiar. Acouple of them were rather abrupt in their manner however and seemed more concerned about the chef catering for guests even a minute after the standard lunchtime period closed. Meals were average though if the standard menu did not suit options were made flexible to suit.
My husband and I have been home now for nearly 3 months and we have totally fallen in love with Sorrento.
Just returned from 2 weeks at the Metropole, although overall the hotel was good, we did experience some problems.
Just got back today from a week at the metropole hotel and had a great weeks holiday !
My wife and I returned from a weeks holiday at the Metropole Sorrento at the end of October 2004.
We stayed here in October 2004. The holiday was with First Choice Holidays.
Returned from a beautiful holiday in Sorrento staying at the Hotel Metropole, was booked over the internet through Direct Holidays and didn't really have any info on the place beforehand.
Got back from the Metropole a couple of weeks ago from a great holiday in sorrento. Booked the hotel through a half board package and thought it was very good. The staff are friendly and speak very good English. The hotel was well kept and the rooms were cleaned every day. The hotel is on quite a busy junction, which you overlook if you have a sea view. It's a good spot to watch the Italian drivers risk life and limb!
What a Fantastic Place!
We have just returned from a 2 week trip to the Sorrentine Penninsula. Our stay was based at the Metropole Hotel on the out skirts of Sorrento. I cannot reccomend this family run hotel enough. The rooms were clean, with furniture in the Neopolatan style, and a balcony with a glorious view over the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvious and Naples itself. All staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely, small portions but by the time you have eaten your first course of pasta, the rest is more than sufficient! We will be returning to this hotel without a doubt and i wouldnt hesistate to recommend it to anyone.
