Hi, We are struggling to decide on our summer holiday this year and I wondered if anyone could help!
We are thinking of flying to Rome for 3 or 4 days and then going to Sorrento for 5 days. Flying to Rome and home from Naples. We want to see Rome, Pompeii, Vesuvius etc. We have 10 year old DD so hotel in Sorrento should have a pool.
Does anyone have any places to stay that they can recommend? Perhaps around £800 - £1000 to spend on accommodation in total.
Any feedback on our holiday idea is also very welcome.
We're doing a similar trip with the DCs at Easter. I've booked the Hilton in Sorrento as it gave a really good room rate (non cancellable) for a family room - not sure what rate would be in summer, though. I have a booking at the Quirinale in Rome (again, because of family room) but need to check if there is anything else that might suit as better, so am interested in any other recommendations you receive. We're flying into Naples and back from Rome and are thinking of having a hire car until we get to Rome, but are now sure whether that's a good idea or not.
Try to find a central hotel in Sorrento as its not easy or safe to walk on the main roads from outlying hotels. The first time we went we stayed at the Atlantic palace which we had to catch a bus to the centre. The second time we went we stayed at the Grand Hote de la Ville which is central. Both hotels had a pool. Both hotels were great, not too sure of the prices now though as it 8 years since we last went.
Transport was good in Sorrento and Iirc you can get a train from the town centre to Pompeii.
