was there many years ago and I absolutely adored it - in fact would say it was my favourite place

since it was so long I wouldn't have many tips - we were in a brilliant hotel and I found if my memory serves me correctly that it was easy to get about. We did go over to Capri and I think you can go to Pompeii in a glass bottomed boat. Have a great time Walnut - wish I was going with you.
How lovely for you
Hope you have a wonderful holiday
Only know that I was born in the Sorrento nursing home in Stirchley Birmingham
Always wanted to go to the real Sorrento
Sorreto is lovely. Have been there twice. Lots of lovely restaurants and hotels. The only thing I didn't like was all the stray cats on the beach.
There is a good hop on hop off bus which leaves from the station. And there are good trains to Pompeii Herculaneum and Paestrum - well worth a visit - but best to join a guided group. Amalfi is a lovely town and its a beautiful drive to get there . Have a lovely time.
I loved Sorrento too and did what jj did, over to Capri and to Pompeii. Also, we took the train up to Rome and spent a day there doing all the usual things. The ice cream in Sorrento was to die for I remember. I'd forgotten about the stray cats until Tilly mentioned them.
We wanton September and it was beautiful.
I actually spent a week in Rome then on a bus to Sorrento. Enjoyed Rome too but a week done me.
Wikitravel is worth a look

. . . as is the official website:
A bus ride along the Amalfi coast is amazing, but not for the faint hearted. The road clings to very steep terrain and swoops in and out. I loved it but 'er indoors was terrified.
