Have researched for days, talked to my daughter who has spent a little time in Sorrento, and google mapped everything! This will be mid August for my daughter and I. I am starting out with a couple of days in Pompei where she is finishing up 6 weeks of work and she will show me ruins then on to Sorrento and some beaches.
For my price ranges (want to keep under $200) I have narrowed down lodging to 4- Savoia, Leone, Magnolila, and La Piazzetta. You will see that the first 2 are just out of city center, Magnolia and La Piazzettta right in different parts of town.
I like quiet at night, I do wear earplugs but that doesn't neccessarily cut out all noise. I also appreciate a comfortable bed. In essence I like my sleep!
We don't mind a good 15ish min walk to town but do not want to rely on a shuttle to get into center. After Sorrento will be going over to Amalfi Coast, then back to Naples and flying out of Rome and will have more questions later for that also.
appreciate advice, Susan
