... and Angelina first got together, Sofia Loren's villa, a hotel owned by Bill Gates and a few other houses. As we head back we see a helicopter coming in to land at what looks like Sofia Loren's villa.
After a lunch at Ravello and a chance sighting of a wedding exit complete with chocolate, confetti and rice pummelling it is time to leave. We endure more Pavarotti and all have dinner, drinks and dancing to end our mini three day ...

... the town we had a great dinner which was concluded by complimentary, locally made limoncello. After we each had a small glass, our waiter brought over a full chilled bottle for us to enjoy. Although we weren't sure if we would be charged (we actually were not!) we continued to enjoy some more of the delicious liquor. The next day we took the local train ...
... to get, some music played over us. At first I thought it was recorded music, but I looked up and it was a guitar player singing Italian songs. The cynical part of me was annoyed, but I quickly got over it as the talented women at the table next to us sang along with him. Sure it was a bit hokey, but damn it if it wasn't all sorts of awesome too. We clinked our glasses of Limoncello and meandered back to our hotel declaring victory over our tired minds and bodies.
... the right place and for her to let me in. I was, but she had forgotten to repost the address after it had fallen off (I don't know how many years ago!)
The apartment was private, had air conditioning, a comfortable single bed and a table/desk with some wifi connection once in a while. The fridge was in the bathroom with breakfast supplies--so all the basics needed were there--and even a full length mirror--only the second place in my entire trip that has had one.

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.
