Sorrento Road Conditions
Sorrento, a longed-for destination on the Gulf of Naples, has been drawing, every year, for centuries, millions of visitors. In the heart of Sorrento Coast, it can be reached through the SS 145 which, from Castellammare di Stabia, goes up to Massa Lubrense. The route along the coast of Sorrento is not very smooth and is often subject to traffic jams, especially in Summer when buses and cars travel to the tourist resorts on the Gulf of Naples.
If you decide to reach Sorrento, between April and October, you could be stuck in long traffic jams before reaching your destination. Unfortunately, you will often find traffic even when you get to the destination: the enchanting towns of Sorrento Coast and of Amalfi Coast are, in most cases, poor in car parks and often busy, too.
The situation is made even more complicated by traffic restrictions which are fundamental to preserve the old town centre and the pedestrian precincts.
In Sorrento, in particular, from April to September 30th, from 7.30 p.m. to 12.00 there are traffic restrictions closing all the roads accessing to the main square (Piazza Tasso) and to the old town centre.
Yet, all the guests of the hotels located in this area have the possibility to go beyond the barriers thus reaching their destinations.
NB On the way to the Hotel Bellevue Syrene, at the height of Via Correale, there is a barrier which can be gone beyond only by those going to the hotels of the Old Town Centre of Sorrento and to the Port. Here is the route in detail to reach the Hotel by car.
