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.

... is Limoncillo as there are many lemon groves. We opted for the usual beers as our pre prandial. Reluctant to walk back to the shuttle bus stop we continued walking to the edge of town for the wonderful view over the bay. Almost out of site is a tiny doorway leading to a beautiful old cloister. Also off this were some stairs leading up to this tiny museum of old musical boxes where this kindly elderly Italian ...
... further excavation. It was a hot day so it was tiring walking around and we unfortunately didn't get a chance to see everything. One thing that did impress us were the cobble stone streets with the deep wheel ruts and large stepping stones for pedestrian crossings. Liam liked seeing the dead people! Through the audio tour, you did get a sense of how it may have been living there.

... exaggerated wave hello. I waved back, ignored his awkward staring and we continued on. The water between the coast and Capri island was pretty rough. We had to slow the boat way down and navigate very carefully to make it to the island. The water bounced us around quite a bit more than we would have liked, but we made it to Capri safely and found a comfortable cove for swimming. We went to drop anchor and, very inconveniently, the anchor came right off the line. This ...
... look at the Rome city road map and determined which way to get out of the city and Nick started driving. Immediately we were lost. You can NOT see the road signs in Italy. They are all old, engraved marble signs on the side of buildings if there are signs at all. I quickly grabbed my iPad and loaded the Galileo maps. Thank You Simon! I don't know how it worked since my iPad had no wifi and was on Airplane Mode but we had a little blue dot on the map indicating where ...
... attached pics) I've really enjoyed this and sharing with other friends who visit. I can't forget to mention Tombola, a game played during the holidays (typically New Years Eve) that is similar to bingo, except it uses the numbers from 1 through 90. The Neopolitan version is much more colorful as each number has a meaning based on La Smurfia Napolitano. I bought my Tombola game in the San Gregorio Armeno market and love the drawings and pictures ...
