We had some disgusting coffee and a decent roll for breakfast. We checked out, bought some postcards and walked to Roma Termini train station. We had to wait in line to get our Eurail passes stamped for validation....We were off to Napoli Centrale train station. We thought we were going to be comfortable and be able to put our feet up...YEAH RIGHT …
I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
... wheel drive bus which takes you up the side of the volcano. From there you have to walk the final 700m to the top of the crater. I cannot believe that I had chosen of all days to where my Havianas and not my Gowalk skeechers! I am very proud of my efforts walking up the side of the volcano as it was quite steep and although I stopped a couple of times (my calves were killing me!) I made it. At the top a guide explained the geological history, pointed out Pompeii, how the ...

Like most hotels in Italy, breakfast is included: great variety of yummy pastry, fresh fruits, yogurt, meats, cheeses, hot chocolate and cappuccino.. Spent the day walking throughout the historic parts of Sorrento. The antiquity of this city is hard to grasp coming from America where a building 300 years old is a relic. Here there are buildings dating to the IX century.

... of Capri, just of Italy. Pete myself and a group of 9 others decided to explore the island by boat and see all the views and the famous blue grotto. Jumping on a fairly big boat with a few other tourists we set off for a 2-hour informative and amazing boat ride. We couldn't believe how amazing it was. The last stop was the blue grotto (the way the light reflects inside the grotto makes the water see through blue) where you can pay to jump on a small rowboat ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
