I spent a substantial amount of time in Rome last winter, but remained primarily in that city for three months. I am considering going back this winter and want to take some day trips to Sorrento and Florence with my guests. Question: is it feesible to spend only a day in these two cities? I know I can see the highlights in Florence in a day, but I am less familiar with Sorrento. To that point, how does one get to Sorrento from Rome, when the train only runs to Naples? I must say, I am somewhat nervous about using the rails, just because I am not at all familiar with how it works (I have read the posts on that topic, but am still nervous). Can anyone shine some light on these issues and ease my concerns? What would you suggest seeing in Sorrento?
Grazie mille amici e amiche!
