If someone were to ask me which of the cities I enjoyed most while in Italy, I would have to put Sorrento at the top of my list. Nestled on the southwestern coast of the country, we were right on the water. Naples and Mount Vesuvius was at our backyard.
Walking into Grand Hotel La Favorita, we were engulfed with the powerful but beautiful smell of jasmine plants. Surrounded by these flowers were trees upon trees of lemons we became part of a lush Mediterranean garden. The lemon is very pervasive in the southern part of Italy. Another thing one would see everywhere was the limoncello in every storefront of the town center.
As we arrived to our rooms, each floor had a different tile scheme. Ours was beautiful hues of blue and yellow with birds being the focal point.
My favorite part of the hotel, aside from the beautiful views, was the buffet breakfast. It was the only place to have a dedicated man doing eggs, anything from scrambled to omelets.
I also wouldn’t leave without a drink on the rooftop or light reading by the pool. It is absolutely breathtaking.
TAKE ME BACK.
