SORRENTO - HOTEL ZONES
Historic Center - Tasso Square
The neighborhood around the Pizzao Tasso, which is essentially Sorrento`s own town square, is filled with small shops and quaint eateries. This is a great area to sty amongst several attractions, pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as plenty of shopping. This area also offers the highest concentration of luxury and inexpensive hotels (and everything in between). From this area, you are close to everything and therefore the town is easy to explore by foot, which is the best way to discover the area. The area boasts a friendly vibe, high energy, along with great views, an overall excellent area to stay. This part of town is very safe is also very well connected to towns and cities outside of Sorrento. One of the best things about this area is that the streets in the center are pedestrian only, which makes it a relaxing place to wander and explore.
Staying in the outskirts of Rimini or by the beaches is another great option. Depending on your location, you may have to take a bus or taxi to reach the city center. There are several hip hotels that have sprung up in recent years on the seafront, and if you are looking for a beach vacation, this is a perfect option. The old town is about a 15-minute walk inland, where you will find many interesting sights to explore as well.
New City Center
The city center is the perfect base for exploring Rimini for those interested in old-town exploration, city walks and food. The city has a good historic center and is a city of art. Most sights can be found in the historic center such as Roman Rimini, Piazza Cavour, Piazza tre Martiri, The Malatesta Temple, the city museum and so much more.
Staying in the outskirts of town offers a quiet alternative in a more residential area. Most of these hotels require transportation to the tourist area of town, however many of these hotels offer shuttle service into town. These hotels can be a great alternative if you are staying on a budget, just be aware of the time you may spend in getting to/from the city attractions.
