The trip will continue to Sorrento, a wonderful pearl on the Amalfi coast overlooking the bay of Naples where our accommodation is located.
Once in Sorrento, after you all have checked in your accommodation, your guide will take you for an orientation walk around the town center pointing out the local products and the best places to eat.
