What is it like to rent an apartment in Sorrento?

The one thing to remember with any rental is that you will have fewer services than a hotel—no housekeeping to clean the rooms (just take out the trash on trash day), concierge to arrange things, or staff to cook you (overpriced) breakfast.

On the other hand, you get to live like a local, have far more room than a hotel, cook some of your own meals to save on daily restaurant bills (or just go to a bar each morning for breakfast), and it almost always costs much less than a hotel.

How long does Sorrento take?

Planning your time: Sorrento has maybe 2-3 hours of mediocre sightseeing. To be brutally honest it is probably the least interesting town in this area. It is only famous for its location.

Sorrento makes an ideal base for exploring Campania thanks to its location at the nexus of regional public transit—pretty much the only place from which you can get anywhere without having to change mode of transportation: Trains direct to Pompeii and Naples; ferries to Capri; buses or ferries down the Amalfi Coast.

If you prefer the home-base style of travel, Sorrento is the perfect base. Figure on three days/two nights here (hit Pompeii on the train ride down from Naples—you can store your luggage temporarily at the Pompei train station—then spend one day each visiting Capri and the Amalfi Coast).

If, however, you prefer to travel from town to town, just treat Sorrento as a way-station to switch from train to bus or ferry; skip Sorrento entirely and sleep in a more interesting locale on the Amalfi Coast or Capri.
