We had an extraordinary guide Vitto, who took us to see some spectacular places and recommended a delicious place to eat in Sorrento "Leone Rosso" and at a very good price

They were absolutely lovely. Cibo squisito. Ambiente amichevole. Daniela, Morgan e loro figlia di 4 anni erano gentilissimi. We spent an unforgettable night with this kind family.
