Thank both of you so very much. I cannot wait to see it. I know this is not supposed to be a commercial site but could you recommend a hotel that is among the picturesque pictures of Sorrento, facing the ocean? The best would be appreciated.

You might want to put your request in a separate post. I stayed in Sorrento in a budget B&B with no view near the train stop and the port.

I'd suggest looking through the Sorrento threads in the Sorrento forum and also ask on the Sorrento forum.

You can check www.venere.com to see what is available for your budget, dates, needs, etc - Read reviews for the things that matter most to you (i.e, noise, air conditioning, view, balcony, etc)

I am assuming that guided tours can be gotten but are the villas of Tiberius friendly to older persons who have slight walking Problems>

I don't know of specific tours but, if you look at that link I gave you in first post, there is a link to tours:

http://www.capri.net/en/excursions-tours

You may be able to arrange a specialty one; I don't know. But, keep in mind that the majority of the island is pedestrian only so I'm not sure what accommodations can be made for someone with mobility issues - The sites on this island are mostly reached via foot.

If you read the link again for the site, you will see it is visited via walking. There are no cars on that side of the island.

That site also has a map of the island so you can see where everything is located.

When I was walking up to Villa Jovis last year I noticed a couple of local residents and one business operator getting around on modified golf carts. With some investigation you may find someone who will provide transport this way for the mobility challenged.

That's what I was thinking - that maybe something like that exists so I would just send emails to a few of the listed tour companies and ask.
