After studying several hotels in Italy and not wanting the typical glass and metal hotels you can experience in the US, we decided on the IL Faro. What a delight.
We wanted to experience old Italy in an older hotel that had lots of history and personality. We were not disappointed. The IL Faro was once the Harbor Masters House, sitting right on the Marina Piccola .
We found everyone there from the owner to the maids most helpful. The rooms were very clean and the view from our room was exceptional. We could lay in bed and watch the water and the ferries coming and going with a nice view of Naples.
The breakfast was very ample served by Mario who made the best chocolate in Italy. The restaurant owned by the hotel ,The Vela Bianca, serves some of the best food we came across after spending 15 days in Italy. It specializes in seafood.
So if you want to really experience Italy and have a wondrous mind, give yourself a treat and stay at the IL Faro.
The bus can pick you up right in front of the train station and drop you off right in front of the hotel. Same for going back up the ancient curving hill with so much history.
Sorrento was a delight and do yourself a favor and get lost in the little alleyways for shopping.
