SORRENTO GETAWAY 3 NIGHTS
Sorrento and Sophia Loren…they go hand in hand. She filmed three movies in Sorrento, helped the city become known, and was named an honorary citizen. We can’t arrange for her to be the citizen who will assist you throughout your stay in Sorrento. But we have arranged for you to have a Monograms Local Host®—a local citizen—who will be on hand to answer your questions, offer suggestions, help arrange your activities, and ensure your vacation is all you want it to be. On this 4-day vacation, we’ve also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing.
Your vacation begins as soon as you arrive. Although the nearest airport is Naples, we can pick you up and transfer you to your selected hotel in the beautiful resort town of Sorrento. Here, your Local Host will welcome you with a warm greeting and a set of materials to familiarize you with the city and help you get settled. You can begin exploring immediately and the next day, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. Your sightseeing features a walk through the Old Town. Among the many sights, you’ll see the 14th-century Sedil Dominova building, a noble mansion built between 1200 and 1300, and you’ll visit the cloister of St. Francis Church.
You also have a free day to explore on your own. Perhaps take an excursion along the Amalfi Coast, where you’ll see indescribable, stunning views. Maybe take a boat trip to Capri or take an excursion to Pompeii to see what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town. Maybe just relax and sample local specialties, such as the fresh fish, or shop for lemon products and intarsio inlaid woodwork. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions.
And did we mention we’ve also arranged for you to have a tasting of limoncello, the world-famous liqueur that is made using Sorrento’s lemons? It’s just another added feature from Monograms. Between the sightseeing we’ve included, the hotel we’ve booked, and the guides we’ve arranged, all you have to do is pack and get ready for a fun adventure!
