First visited the Sorrento area in 1979 and have visited at least once a year. Since our retirement we now visit 2/3 times a year. We choose Sorrento because we feel so comfortable and relaxed when there, the local people have always treated us with kindness and courtesy.
We also try to visit at least 2 other Italian destinations each year and over time have stayed in most of the usual places (most more than once) eg Venice, Rome, Florence, Bologna, Genoa, Turin etc as well as countryside places in Umbria (primarily), Lazio and Tuscany. However, have so fallen in love with Bologna that it has joined Sorrento as a must do each year!
Having seen most of the best known sights in Italy we now wander around, find places for long lunches and if in the mood, drop into any sight that looks interesting or revisit old favourites .
We now stay in apartments because of the more relaxed atmosphere, space and organising our own timetable eg getting up in the morning, breakfast etc.
