When to go on your Sorrento holiday
There is nothing like a cold, dark, wet English day to make you dream of the warmer climes, but travelling in Summer months can bring its own problems – airports full of families, higher costs on hotels and flights and sold out signs against your “must do” list. A Sorrento holiday, however, means you can travel through Spring and most of Autumn and stretch out the sun.
The hotels in Sorrento open at the beginning of April and run through to mid October – a lovely long season! In this time there is plenty to occupy you – there is the absolute must of visiting Pompeii & Herculaneum using the Circumvesuviana train (great for keeping away from the busy roads), a day into Naples to see the wonderful museum focused on Mount Vesuvius, and the Catacombs. There are also specialised tours including boat trips, cookery classes and massages. A visit to the town, along with a refreshing glass of limoncello must complete your list!
All of this and with temperatures ranging from 21c plus in the summer, and the coolest being a steady 15c plus for Spring and Autumn months, means more time to enjoy the great outdoors! The sun is also prominent in these months with the lowest point being 6hrs of natural daylight each day.
With smaller crowds, there are less queues and the need to book services including the hydrofoil is significantly reduced. Why would you not want to extend your tan for these fantastic months and explore this beautiful, scenic area?
