Pre wtour / took aircoach at 2am to Dublin, bus was like a fridge and he blared music . Couldn't sleep if we tried. Got a 7:30 flight to Naples
Picked up car in Naples
Drove to sorrento found the Hotel fairly quickly perched up on a hill with great views, hotel itself was basic the beds were way to narrow & hard the room quite small, the shower tiny.
On the plus side staff are nice and friendly a nice pool a good sunroof.
We unpacked our things and asked about somewhere nice to eat.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Fiorita Sorrento
The accommodation is excellent value.
The accommodation is excellent value. The family who run the hotel were most welcoming especially to the children and were wonderful in providing information about local transport and activities/sites. The hotel is in a stunning location with an excellent regular bus service into Sorrento right next door. If we had known that the public transport available was so good we would not have hired a car. Sorrento is a beautiful classy location from which to explore Pompeii and Herculaneum with lots of classy shops and restaurants. We will be going back and also going back to this hotel.
Stayed at the Hotel Fiorita for two days in October 2004, paying about 70 EUR per night for a double room.
Location: Hills above Sorrento, approx 10m by car down the hill to Sorrento. While this is slightly less convenient than being in town, it offers a much quieter environment and (of course) better views. A bus service runs regularly to Sorrento.
Room: Attractively furnished, very clean and a good size; a terrace overlooking Sorrento made the most of the view and provided a great place to relax in the deck chair. Bathroom was clean and well fitted out, and bed was comfortable.
Service: Service was uniformly excellent, with hospitable staff who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Sunday evening: After a delicious meal at a restaurant, full of Italian entertainment, we coached around Rome looking at illuminations. This time we crossed the Tiber River and there in front of us was The Vatican-no people, just cordoned off in preparation for the thousands of visitors tomorrow. It was a beautiful building in the night light, the 200 pillars casting shadows and the red light very noticeable in the black sky. Beside the red light we ...
... hotel that was one of the best in the world. After a little swimming we drove back to our villa.
Today my family and I were going to Pompeii. For those who don't know Pompeii was a city next to a volcano. When it erupted it had so much debris that the city was buried under 30 feet of ash, molten rock, dirt, and hundreds of minerals. Once we got there the tour lady started telling us all kinds of things about the volcano. One thing that was cool was that ...
... for the women,. From here she took us to the "Red Light" area and how do they know this, because there is a house down a lane way , where there are pictures above each bedroom entrance with pictures of different positions that you can buy the woman to do this. In fact prostetution was legal in those days under Pompeii government it wasn't until Rome became part of the Vatican rule. We also saw lead pipes to carry water from cisterns, and to ...
... Neither was trying to fit 2 bodies plus 4 bags onto a train in peak hour.
What you're thinking now is what we were thinking then..."is this story ever going to end?"
Luckily for us Tamara had informed me the train to Sorrento is only 20 minutes so we decided not to push for seats but to stand, protectively over our luggage in the carriage doorway. When we arrived at Sorrento (75 minutes later) we were ...
... terror frozen forever on their faces. To suffocate in a mudslide… not a pleasant way to bid this world farewell.
And yet, Pompeii, in my view, died an honourable death. Rather than succumb to slow decay, having ugly, mediocre structures built on top of a beautifully designed city, as happened throughout much of the Roman world, this city was frozen in time and we can now see it as it was during its zenith of glory.
