... I walked the other direction from Sorrento - more towards Capri and up the hills to see what was over there...just better views is all. I was able to take some pictures around at the tip of the point looking back at Sorrento. I walked back and got some more gelato before heading to an area to watch the sunset. I walked around town a little bit more, got another drink and hung around. Not much happened today as I was just going to relax all day...I begin the trip home ...
... up to the main part of town where a number of high end shops are. Capri can be done in a half day, but if you have a full day, you'll get more out of it as you can really explore Capri the city and Anacapri as well.

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.
