Naples or Sorrento in December?
Save

I am taking my 17 year old granddaughter to Italy at Christmas time and would like to stay in Naples or Sorrento for a few days. Any recent visitors with suggestions?

Thanks

Lynne

Hi

Nobody knows if we will be allowed to travel this year but Sorrento normally has many places open and you can see previous Christmases below which look very nice.

Sorrento is a nice town with about 30k inhabitants including St Agnello whereas Naples is a huge city and will have more going on.

Thank you Eddie. I am keeping my fingers crossed about the travel. We hope to attend a cooking class or two while we are there in case you have advice about that?

Hi

You can see some cooking classes below but you'll need to check that they are operating in December.

Naples gets beautifully decked out for the holidays - a real treat. If you have nice weather (which I have had there in December), you could jump on a ferry and visit one of the three nearby islands if you wanted to - Capri, Ischia or Procida.

In winter, "real" year-round cities are typically optimal over more touristy towns.

But then much depends on whether you would prefer a city, or a town that's oriented to tourists

And also your intended day trip destinations.

Public transport is optimal from Naples.

Both destinations are lovely but so different, and so match to your preference.
