Sometimes the pressures of work and daily life get a little too much and I feel the need to escape for a while. A great way of doing this is to get away for a little while and a change of scene is a good way of recharging the batteries. The thing is I don’t want to spend a fortune either, that would add to the stress instead of helping, so I’ve been looking at cheap holidays. If you look around and are a little bit flexible, you can find cheap holidays out there.
What sort of destination am I looking for? Somewhere warm, with good food and some places to visit appeals, so I’ve picked out somewhere I’ve been before that I know can deliver all of those things. Where do I have in mind? Sorrento.
Sorrento is easy to get to as you can fly into Naples airport from a lot of UK airports. The transfer time isn’t long and you’ll soon in your hotel. It’s not a place for sandy beaches (although there are some further along the Amalfi Coast), but there are still plenty of options. Most hotels have a pool and some even have a private ‘beach’ or bathing platform. You’ll be able to find a hotel terrace or a bar to sit in to drink in views like this one of Vesuvias.
We loved using Sorrento as a base for exploring as well as a place to relax in. You can take trips out to Pompeii, Positano and Capri. There’s no shortage of places to visit, including the big city of Naples itself. There are lots of coach trips which you can book onto or you can catch the train or a ferry. The ferry is a lovely alternative to the train if you are going into Naples for the day.
Are you in need of a break? Have you been looking at cheap holidays to get away from it all for a little while?
