Early on the bus to beat the many people that flock to the famous Amalfi coast road. The narrow road is perched up high on the cliff and is regulated so buses can only go one direction as it is too narrow to have two coaches pass eachother. People can only drive on certain days according to their number plates. Our tour guide plays a lot of Pavarotti as we wiggle around the roads and watch the dramatic coastline before us.

... bult up a cliff, the italians certainly didnt pick easy places to buikd seaside villages. great for photos though. possitano was the nicest as it was quiter but also the houses looked better kept, the houses in amalfi could definitely do with a fresh coat if paint and some love. it wasnt as sunny today but still lovely. a few years ago at conference I was madly in love with cafe eic and there gelato and tried to eat every flavour over 5 days I think I gave up at ...
... Krupp) a zig zag pathway that would its way down the side of the hill. I can see why it is called 'Heaven'. This is one of the most beautiful places I have been on earth !!
With a cobbled footpath with views down to clear blue/green waters below - bliss !!!
A quick dash back to Capri centre and down in the funicular to return to the port and our Hydrofoil back to Sorrento !!!
What a day ...
... a tourist town with plenty of Italians. That will surely be par for the course for the rest of the towns we visit.
After a refreshing lunch we checked out the many side streets and eventually headed down to the waterfront to catch our first real views of the Mediterranean. Being so tired I really didn't expect to enjoy anything today, but nothing can breathe life back into you like a view such as that! Jagged cliffs, deep dark blue ocean and a ...
... I remembered it from last time). In beautiful fine morning sunshine we walked again to Sorrento and bought some gorgeous scarves down the market lane. We bought lunch from a friendly salumeria and ate it looking out over the Bay of Naples...chilly wind by this stage. We tried to visit the Correale Museo while the shops were in repose, but it was closed as well...so back to Piazza Laura and then to Piazza Tasso where we were sitting and eating the rest of our lunch when Caitlin got ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Vue D'Or Sorrento
we arrived at the hotel after a long coach ride due to the strike at Napels airport nobody seemed to be around. The hotel was dark and a little forboding when you entered it and also very cold. THE FOOD IS A JOKE LITERALLY. Breakfast was fine the usual bread ect but dinner was terrible not so much the food but the quanity ,for example I chose as my maincourse one night prawn salad and I asked if it was a salad what came was prawn cocktail in a glass. Seasonal veg for 2 nights was tinned processed peas and another night just chips we did manage to laugh about it with the other guests lamb chops where was the meat skinny chicken drumsticks,still we managed to fill up with bread. They could have made a lot of money after dinner in the bar, but it was to cold to sit there people were literally shivering altho it was early May it was cold at night. We asked if they could light the fire as there was a fantastic big fire place there but was told no it was May and we did not need a fire to keep warm so we all went to bed. The rooms are nice and clean but the towels are like kitchen tea towels very thin but you get used to them after a while. The hotel is in a lovely setting the views are stunning and the transport into Sorrento very good, the waiters and the cleaning staff were very nice and helpful just a shame the management could not take on board the basic needs of holiday makers.as it is a nice hotel.
My wife and I spent a week on half-board at La Vue d'Or from 20 - 27 May 2005.
My best friend and our teenage daughters arrived at La Vue D'Or after 10 days of hectic train travel throughout Italy. We were impressed by the beautiful view and the gracious people who work at this hotel. It was a perfect place to take a break for a few days before heading to Rome and Milan. How wonderful to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun during the day and the gorgeous sunsets at dusk. The accommodations, while not luxurious, were adequate, and the hotel shuttle to Sorrento prompt and useful. The highlight of my stay, however, was the perfect cappuccino our waiter served with a smile every morning. He was attentive and professional, and his positive, cheerful attitude was contagious, setting the tone for the rest of the day. I would definitely return there for a longer stay.
Nice place to stay
The La Vue D'or means golden fork in French. This is a charming place to stay. It reminded me of a country inn with a roaring fire.The views from our balcony were incredible of the Bay of Naples. It has a very remote location but offers complimentary shuttle service into and out of Sorrento.It is family owned and they all seemed very nice and helpful. It has a restaurant on the premises with a set price on the menu which was 19 euros for dinner. Breakfast was complimentary. All in all I enjoyed my stay in Sorrento and at the La Vue D'Or. Next time I will consider staying there again. It is a good home base to take in all the near by beautiful country side of southern Italy.
