... was perfectly fresh and sweet!
We continued exploring and admiring the beautiful town and then ate dinner at the most amazing place (best food so far). It was an outdoor seating with beautiful view of Sorrento streets. The bread was fresh and warm and the salad had a fresh lemon juice dressing that was delicious. I had a pasta tomato sauce and mozzarella dish that was mouthwatering. The sauce was perfect and so was the ...
... check. Eventually get to board and we leave 40 minutes late which affected my arrival in Toronto, after getting off the plane I had to go to another security check of my bags, so glad I don't have to go to collect any checked bags as there would be NO way I'd make it through in time, after going through security I now have a really loonnggg line for passport control, am getting a bit worried about making my plane but it turned out to be fine, I got ...
... four corners), Piazza Sett'Angeli, Piazza Pretoria and countless churches. The churches here house such artwork and intricate details and always seem to be held in the very highest regard. In fact, we met a man who gave us a mini tour of one of the churches and told us stories of the frescoes and statues. He also expressed to us that the tombs existing beneath the church have an extensive underground path system all the way to the Cappuccini Catacombs two or three ...
... made it back to port at around 4.30pm. Helen and Phillip stayed in Sorrento whilst Peter and I headed for the tender back to the ship.
Jim and Ruth were at a nearby bar so we joined them for a G&T before catching the tender.
The seas were still choppy and we had to wait for the ship to move around to let us on the other side. Surprisingly I wasn’t getting seasick.
When we got on board we learnt that at around ...
... fertilise the local farming land. The pumice stone was used to build roads.
We spent two hours walking through the city. It was eerie. There were even bodies that have been calcified in the position they would have died. We saw the town design including bakeries, bath houses, brothels and the chariot pathways where the wheel marks on worn stone still exist. Incredible!
Most of the really significant marble work and mosaic has been displaced ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Royal Sorrento
Stayed at the Royal for two nights and found it to be one of nicest 4 stars in all of Italy. Great location, a convenient 5 min walk to the town and the docks for hydrofoils (you may want to get a taxi for the long walk up from the docks though). Lobby is quite nice and grounds outside are very pretty with great views of Vesuvius. Our room was the Standard type, but it was quite spacious and the bathroom was very clean and roomy. Although our room fronted the street, the glass was insulated well enough that we heard no street noise. Staff was quite friendly and helpful at the front desk, but didn't have a concierge service (at least none that we were aware), so you should do some of your own trip planning. Breakfasts were good, but we weren't as impressed with dinner, plus the wait service staff at the restaurant isn't all that good. That's only real negative we had with the Royal.. Otherwise, it's a splendid place to stay.
A little bit of heaven on earth
We have just returned from a week of pure luxury and relaxation in the Grand Royal Hotel in Sorrento.
We both absolutley loved it with its own private beach (and a lift to get you there) breathtaking views of the bay of Naples fabulous gardens, restaurant, bar and snack bars which provided great food and drinks. Freshly cooked ommlettes made by a chef at breakfast each morning and also a buffet selection with fresh fruit cereal bacon sausage etc. and waiter service dinners in the evening time with a great variety to choose from. Great location right in the centre of everything. Rooms are spotless clean and air conditioned with a great electric shutter on the window. We will definitley return in the near future as it was one of our best holidays ever.
Toronto, Canada - Outstanding Hotel
Stayed here July 25th for a few days. I also booked on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews and it was truly outstanding. We had a sea view room with balcony which was spotlessly clean and beautiful. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious. The breakfast was excellent and it is fabulous to sit ouside on the terrace overlooking the gardens while eating your freshly cooked omlet. The staff were extremely efficient and a pleasure to deal with every day - nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is great - a short walk to the square where all the restaurants and shops are. The pool area is also great. Would not hesitate to stay here again -
The hotel was great. Location, food, staff were superb. I will certainly be back next year
Exactly as everyone reviewed it........
Just come back from a short stay at the Royal in Sorrento (which I booked on the strength of reviews on this site). This hotel is a real gem, quiet, efficient, beautiful surroundings and excellent staff. I even recovered a wallet of credit cards lost in Positano with the aid of reception staff and honest shopkeepers! I would recommed paying the extra for a seaview as the rear rooms do overlook a busy road. Breakfast is excellent.
We love this place!
Wonderful Hotel: Location, Staff, View, Everything!
We have been going twice a year for the past 4 years and have booked again for June & September 2004. Faultless.
We stayed at the Grand Royal Hotel for one night this past May. We were originall booked to stay at the Villa Maria which was nearby. After arriving at the Villa Maria we found that it was not up to our expectations and need to leave. If you are ondering what happened just seach on "Villa Maria" in Sorrento here on Tripadvisor.
Faultless, wonderful holiday.
From the minute we stepped into the hotel everything was just perfect. The room, the view and the welcoming food tray. (we arrived Late in the evening)Mealtimes where delightful, the setting beautiful and the staff wonderful.The hotel grounds are fantastic as is the pool.We have had a memorable holiday and shall certainly return to the Royal.
