My sister and I have returned from a delightful holiday in Italy. We stayed at the Atlantic Palace Hotel in Sorrento. We arrived after a horrendous journey of 3 hours from Naples Airport. This was due to it being a Bank Holiday so nobodies fault just bad timing!
The Hotel Manager met us and said 'Just take you cases to the room a hot meal is waiting in the restaurant'. Wow the food was gorgeous, the waiters could not have been more attentive and helpful - it was 5 star treatment and that's how it stayed all week.
The shuttle bus is great remember to book it the day before but walking down to Sorrento only takes 20 minutes just be careful there is no pavement for the first few hundred yards although the drivers coming up the hill towards us gave plenty of room.
At Sorrento Bus Station you can catch a red bus (faster) or a blue bus (scenic) along the Amalfi coast under 7 Euros return to Positano. We walked down and back but there is a shuttle bus both ways.
Herculaneum is more compact and far more interesting if you only have time for either there or Pompeii both will be far too hot in July and August I fear.
All the people we met were kind, friendly and helpful, learn a few words of Italian and that is appreciated.
