It will take about 40 minutes...and it will be very dark. Be sure to let your 'hotel/b&b/apt' accommodation know you'll be arriving late! When you say "hire" a car...do you mean rent a car, or hire a taxi...?

Even at that hour you can expect traffic on the road to Sorrento - there's only one way in and out, one lane in each direction, and August is the height of the season. Pack your patience.

Thank you for your help and advice, we are arranging car rental and hop to pick it up from the airport, we are used to driving in Corfu and some of the roads there are precarious, but

Italy sounds more challenging!

Thank you, your advice is appreciated, we thought the car may be a bit easier than bus or train at that hour with luggage........but sounds like it will be an experience!

Thank you, that is helpful, the route looks fairly straight forward on the map, but probably more challenging in reality!

Age is just a number, we are actually going to Sorrento to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary! But still love a adventure! Thank you for your comments and help.
