For centuries, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast have attracted visitors to their historic ruins, such as the preserved ancient towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the picturesque hilltop towns of Positano and Ravello, and the breathtaking views across the Bay of Naples to the island of Capri. Sorrento makes a good base as it has a pretty old town, a harbour with ferry departures to Capri, Amalfi and Naples, and is within reach of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Further along the coast is Positano, where pastel coloured houses are positioned upon a steep hill, and the resort of Amalfi, home to legendary hotels. We recommend the 5-star Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi or the Santa Caterina for clients looking for a relaxing stay.
The islands of Capri and Ischia both offer their own peaceful and tranquil havens for travellers. Capri has been a favourite for guests dating back to the days of the Roman republic, and Ischia is renowned for its thermal springs and cuisine.
