Sorrento and Amalfi Coast holidays
Sitting just to the south of Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are two of Italy’s prettiest destinations. Sorrento is full of life, its mazy backstreets filled with trattorias, gift shops and hole-in-the-wall cobblers crafting leather sandals. It sits on a clifftop above a series of tiny pebbled beaches and bathing platforms, with spectacular views across the bay to mighty Mount Vesuvius.
To the west lies the Amalfi Coast. Tours here tend to start in pastel-hued Positano, before snaking along lemon grove-lined cliffs to pretty Amalfi town. Explore its monochrome-striped cathedral, before heading up into the hills to the beautiful botanical gardens of Ravello.
Out in the Bay of Naples are the islands of Capri and Ischia. Glamorous Capri, with its designer boutiques and beach clubs straight out of a Slim Aarons print, is an ideal day trip from Sorrento. Ischia is worth spending a few more days on, to fully appreciate its hot springs, sandy beaches and laid-back seaside villages.
Tipping is customary for obtaining good service. For service in restaurants etc. 10% is usual.

The electrical current is 230V, 50Hz. Plug adaptors should have 2 round pins.
Summers are generally hot, with a milder spring and autumn and cold winters, particularly in the north. Lightweight cottons and linens are advisable and we suggest that you take layered clothing so that you can adapt to weather conditions accordingly. A jacket and woollens for cooler evenings are useful. We also suggest a light waterproof jacket in case of any occasional showers. Comfortable, closed, flat walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are essential. Other useful items to pack are a small day-backpack, binoculars, a torch and an umbrella. Due to the medieval layout of the towns (and current transport regulations) access is limited and clients are advised that most of our escorted coaching holidays in Italy, involve a significant amount of walking. When visiting churches, visitors (ladies in particular) should cover their arms and shoulders. Entry may also be refused to ladies or gentlemen wearing shorts. For holidays during winter months, to destinations where the weather is a lot colder, you will require waterproof outerwear and stout shoes, warm clothing (hat, coats, gloves and an umbrella). You should be prepared to walk in heavy rain or on snow and ice.
