After exploring Pompeii, we boarded the bus again to head to our hotel in Sorrento, which is right on the coast. Our hotel had the most amazing view and mum and I had a lovely little balcony which we enjoyed on our first evening there. The thing I remember and loved most about this hotel, was heading down to the bar before dinner and enjoying a couple of cocktails before we ate. On our first night there was a gentleman playing piano and singing, and a little group of us went down and listened to him after dinner. He was really amazing and had a lovely singing voice.
The hotel itself had the most beautiful view out over the ocean and we were really glad that we would be spending more than one night there. Sorrento was to be our base for the next couple of days while we went out to enjoy the sights nearby, namely the island of Capri and also some sight seeing along the Amalfi coast. We didn’t see much of Sorrento itself, except for one afternoon spent there hunting down a jeweller that sold the beautiful Capri watches (which we found eventually and eight of us ladies in the tour group all ended up taking one home). But although we didn’t get to see a lot of the town of Sorrento, the view from our hotel was enough and it was great to come back to it after a day of being a tourist and just watching the cruise ships come in (or leave) and watch the sunset.
