Taxis are very expensive here, be prepared! Arrive early for ferries, since it can be confusing to figure out which dock to go to. Make sure to carry cash, a lot of people will ask to be paid in cash, but some people will not give you back your full change.

Cornelia - we found this gem of a cocktail bar by chance. Great cocktails in a whimsical setting.

Our favourite bar was by far the Irish bar chaplins, the staff were absolutely amazing and the whole vibe was just outstanding!

We took scooters up the amali coast and the views were breathtaking! It's a must for anyone travelling as car traffic for a bit hectic near Positano and you can avoid it by scooting on the scooters! Capri was also amazing we done the gardens of augusto and the cable chair was absolutely out of this world

What is the best tip for going on your honeymoon to Sorrento?

Stay 3 nights so that you're not rushed and can see as much of the Amalfi coast as you'd like while also leaving time to lounge by the pool and rest. If you're considering visiting Pompeii, we decided to book a private car to the train station on our last day and added a private tour of Pompeii on the way so as not to use an entire day visiting and it was the best idea ever! We booked through Mondo Guide.
