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.

Still cloudy and overcast which I found very disappointing as this hotel was supposed to be our treat! Today visited Paestum and the Amalfi coast. What a drive – spectacular but extremely narrow roads more like one lane instead of accommodating loads of tour buses, cars and italian drivers. Roads wound up over the coast affording great views …
Caught the bus from hotel to Sorrento rather than trying to find car park and then the train to Pompeii. Interesting train trip although went past some very poor and rundown areas.Was very cheap to get into Pompeii in fact the children were free and we were given some informative guide books and maps. Really was a highlight, fascinating ruins. …
Our first real day of rain so unfortunately we had to miss Bagnorregio, another walled town we had been looking forward to visiting. The rain was torrential and both children feeling carsick after windy roads on way from Panicale to motorway. Once on motorway we were fine and made good time to Naples. The countryside really changes a lot once you …
... are struggling to share the fruits of our society in an inclusive fashion.
It's hard to believe that on that 24th of August in 79 A.D. Pompei, a town of 20,000, was wiped from the map when Mt Vesuvius erupted so violently. The ruins show how the people of the town lived. In one exhibit the combination of bone and plaster corpses contorted in the throes of agony show how they died.
One could spend days wandering around ...
... city was abandoned for almost as many years. When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that--underneath a thick layer of dust and debris--Pompeii was mostly intact. The buildings, artifacts and skeletons left behind in the buried city have taught us a great deal about everyday life in the ancient world.
