About Sorrento & Naples
Naples is the largest city in southern Italy, but you won’t experience the crowds usually associated with cities of its size. Amid the scent of lemon trees and olive groves, it bursts with interesting architecture and archaeological treasures. Its historic district is one of Italy’s most celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Just around the bay, the ruins of the ill-fated Roman city of Pompeii are waiting to be explored.
However, there’s more to this fascinating city than history alone. From traditional pizzas to delicious seafood delicacies, the combination of rich soils and bountiful oceans ensure Naples’ world-class reputation as a foodie’s paradise.
An exquisite coastal drive leads past dramatic cliffs and hairpin bends to Sorrento, a beautiful town perched on high overlooking Mount Vesuvius. Its central square, Piazzo Tasso, is the perfect location for sophisticated cafes where you can watch the world go by. Sorrento’s historic old town offers a veritable rabbit warren of narrow alleyways and terracotta roofs to explore. This is the sort of place where fairytales are made, getting lost here is an adventure waiting to happen. And it will always end happily ever after.

You are not expected to tip on top of restaurant service charges, though leaving a small amount is common practice. If there is no service charge, you might consider leaving 10%/15%, but it is not obligatory. In bars any small change is left as a tip. Tipping taxi drivers is also not mandatory but suggested.
