I think these trains run every 30 minutes. Sorrento is in the Campania region of south western Italy.-- Sorrento has high cliffs, a road in a gorge from town to sea level has a hairpin bend.---- I stayed at the hotel Dianna, there is a small tourist tax.-----Sorrento is a beautiful town and area. there are offshore islands of Capri and Ischia, these can be visited by ferry.- -- Other places to visit are Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius, Naples,and Positano on the Amalfi coast.-- Positano is up a steep hill. I went to Positano by bus. Buses leave from outside Sorrento rail station.---Sightseeing tours leave from Sorrento centre---The currency in Italy is the Euro. Older British people will remember Gracie Fields popular singer,she lived on Capri, which is a lovely island.-------------Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin sang a song called "Come back to Sorrento "---The last verse is "Please don"t say farewell, and leave this heart is broken, come back to Sorrento, so i can mend, "--------------I would love to go back.
