On Sunday, we joined the huge line to visit the Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel. The last Sunday of the month is free entry and it seemed like every man and his dog wanted to visit.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Prestige Sorrento
Service, facilities and amenities were all outstanding. It is quite a ride (20 minutes) up to the hotel and the shuttle service is time-restricted, but the quality of the staff and the views and the peace and quiet made it well worthwhile.
