The occasion was my partners sons wedding . What more romantic place to be wed than the beautiful Italian setting overlooking the paradise of the rich, the island of Capri. We flew into Naples airport and were picked up to take a 1 1/2 hour coach trip to our destination. The coach picks its way through beautiful countryside with startling sea views. We stayed at the lovely grand Europa hotel which despite its name has an informal atmosphere. Like many Italian hotels 4 star is not the same as our 4 star however the hotel was clean and provided a good base for our adventures. It seems that there is a wedding going on all the time in Sorrento which does detract a little from the romance . The wedding we were party too was perfect on a beautiful cloudless day overlooking the Mediterranean followed by a reception at the relas blu which is a cliff top hotel steeped in luxury. Sorrento is a beautiful place with much to do. For the less mobile traveller the steep hills to the harbour could pose a problem. We had to stop half way up the stairway cut in to the hill just to catch our breath however access to the beach can be gained by an interesting system of antiquated lifts so is entirely possible. There is no real beach as such but more manmade pontoons to lie out on. There is much to do in Sorrento such as shopping and walking, boat trips to capri, a visit to Pompeii which is a must but again could be a challenge to the less able. Car hire is relatively cheap but be aware that it costs a fortune to park daily. A cheaper option is definitely the train. We travelled to Pompeii at a cost of 3.50 euros each.

    We love Sorrento, and like you say, there is so much to do there, and getting around is easy on public transport.
