EXPLORING THE SORRENTO PENINSULA

Great hotel, world class sites.

Here’s our perennially popular Sorrento Peninsula holiday. We stay in the beautifully situated and pleasantly appointed Hotel Mary. At the end of a hard day in the hills or amongst the historic sites you can now relax by the hotel pool and enjoy the fantastic views out across the Bay of Naples.

We combine the Sorrento Peninsula and the Lattari Mountains with visits to Pompeii, Herculaneum and other places of interest such as Amalfi and Ravello. We can spend a day in the animated and colourful city of Naples which is richly endowed with beautiful churches and palaces. There is normally time for a visit to Capri. However such is the concentration of great walking and world class sightseeing you could happily spend three weeks here and not see it all. The Sorrento Peninsula is definitely somewhere you need to come back to again and again.

Please note that fares and entrance fees for the trips from Vico Equense are not included in the holiday charge.
