“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

The Big Red Bus leaves from outside Sorrento train station every two hours (9.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm) and lasts approximately 105 minutes  and has a circular hop on, hop off route passing through Sant'Angelo , lovely countryside and old villages with spectacular views of the mountains and Vesuvius across the Bay of Naples, to Massa Lubrense and Termini and back. There is a pre recorded commentary  in a choice of 8 languages and six drop off points. At €12 (£9.93) per adult, €6(£4.60)per child, it is very good value and well worth doing.

“Unexpectedly brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

We have seen the city site seeing buses in lots of cities and always thought they looked a little too touristy! But for some reason we decided to give the one in sorrento a try and we were glad that we did! You collect the bus from the bus station and the times are on their website. The bus drove past our hotel and from what we saw the tours late morning always seemed busy but after lunch they were a lot quieter so would recomend the afternoon so that you guarantee a seat on the top deck to enjoy the views and sunshine. It only costs €12 and the trip lasts about 1 hours 45 minutes of spectacular views! You can get off in a number of village stops have a walk round and a drink and get the next bus that comes through. Surprisingly to us it was one of the best parts of the holiday and great value for money! Give it a try!

“Wonderful Scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2011

A seaside resort with breathtaking scenery, it is also the starting point for trips to the Amalfi Coast. We did this along with Pompeii in a day trip from Rome. The City Sightseeing bus is a good way of seeing Sorrento if you are pressed for time. There are only for buses, though, at 9.30,11.30,13.30 & 15.30. Do taste the local drink,limoncello, while you are here. For more details, look at my webpage at :
