AnnaliseHi I’m Annalise! I’m from South Carolina but am currently studying in Zürich, Switzerland. I’m planning a few trips this summer around Europe and don’t have much experience solo traveling, so I would love some tips and to make friends along the way😊
based on 3 experiences
I was in Sorrento alone and recommend: - a day trip to Capri, you can take the ferry from Sorrento port - the path of gods which you can include in a trip along the Almalfi coast, stunning views, and not too bad of a hike. I recommend starting from Bomerano as the bus takes you most of the way and then it’s a fairly easy downhill/flat walk - Vesuvius volcano and Pompeii and Herculaneum ruins, all really accessible by train and bus, so much info online and people are really helpfulPosted: May 26, 2023
Safety was better than in Neapels. Overall Italy is not very safe but since this town is way smaller and full with tourists felt safer. Cleaner compared to the bigger Cities as well. Hotel Hilton was a good choice. A bit expensive but worth it.Posted: May 26, 2023
Sorrento was my home base during the Amalfi Coast trip and it was unforgettable experience. I took day trips to Amalfi, Positano, Capri and Pompei. Sorrento was so charming and safe town with great restaurants under the lemon trees, amazingly delicious and fresh seafood with excellent vine, very tasty desert and not expensive, beautiful beaches, great shopping and many so nice hotels with wonderful breakfast and good price.Posted: December 3, 2022
