Our Holiday Abroad | Sorrento

Hi Lovely!

I can’t believe I’m almost done with my recap(s) of my wonderful trip to Italy. We just covered Fletch and mine’s time in Florence and now we’re on to Sorrento!! We traveled south to stay in this adorable town because I wanted to see Pompeii while in Italy. I don’t want to get into too much just yet so let’s get on to the day by day recap!

Day One
Our journey from Florence was an interesting one. First we took a train from Florence to Naples then switched to another train to finish our journey. We ended up grabbing the longer, cheaper train out to Sorrento from Naples which meant an hour and a half of standing with our suitcases on a hot, crowded train. Needless to say, we were VERY excited when we arrived in Sorrento and were able to get off the train. We ended up getting there about an hour earlier than our scheduled shuttle was to meet us so we sat in the shade and chatted. It was a nice, relaxing way to wait. Located in the same building as the train station was a travel agency. We decided to throw caution to the wind and book a last minute trip along the Amalfi Coast. We had talked about it when planning our itinerary but decided to take it off to save money.

After our long wait our shuttle picked us up and we were off to see our beautiful hotel. Our travel agent splurged in Sorrento since we would be there the longest (and I’m so glad she did!) We pulled up to the Hotel Cristina and I was in awe. The hotel was built right into the side of the mountain. Our room had a beautiful balcony that looked over the city. We couldn’t have asked for a better hotel.
