Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast!
September 29 - October 1, 2023
THE AMALFI COAST, LIMONCELLO & SOUTHERN ITALY CONFERENCE DETAILS
Sorrento, Italy, September 29 - October 1, 2023
The Amalfi coast…..just the words themselves conjure up scenes of tropical Italian beauty! From bright yellow lemons (and big ones at that!), to the rugged coastline, to the colorful and terraced towns in this area of Italy, just about everyone who has seen pictures of this area say “I want to go there….right there!” And now is your chance!
Finding conference hotels in this area that are affordable is challenging, as room rates can be outrageously expensive. This is compounded by the problem that reasonably priced rooms are often in locations that are difficult to get to, or more often than not, are in areas that are isolated from the historic centers of the towns.
Being Italian and living in Italy part of the year for many, many years, has its advantages, especially when it comes to finding the right place to host a meeting. And we have found it!!! On Corso Italia, the main pedestrian street running right through Sorrento, is our host hotel for this conference: https://www.michelangelosorrento.com/ Hotel Michelangelo is a lovely family friendly hotel in the historic center of Sorrento, not isolated up on the hills above the town. While technically across the peninsula from the Amalfi coast, the Sorrento is a short 30 minutes from the Amalfi coastline. But Sorrento has much to offer, and is the best location for a meeting in this area. First of all, many of the towns along this area of Italy are steeply terraced, which can make a casual stroll more like hiking, a definitely turn off for some folks. Sorrento, along the Corso Italia, is flat….that translates to easy walking to restaurants, shops, café’s and vantage points of the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and the Mediterranean sea. The ferry to Capri Island departs from Sorrento, and Sorrento is close to Vesuvius and Pompeii for a nice day trip. On the other side of the peninsula, one can easily find Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, and Ravello. In the other direction, Naples is across the bay, making it an easy day trip from Sorrento as well. In the evenings, from the hotel roof top, you can watch the sun set over the Mediterranean, illuminating Mt. Vesuvius and Naples in the distance.
A welcome reception will be held on the evening of September 29, 2023, at 6 PM on the roof top bar, where you can have a cocktail or your beverage of choice, an appetizer, and meet your fellow CE in Italy & Europe travelers. 12 hours of COPE accredited CE will be offered the following two days, September 30 and October 1, 2023, from 6:30 AM until 12:30 PM in the hotel conference center.
Sorrento at the end of September and early October is beginning to slow down from the height of the tourist season, and the heat of the summer months is beginning to wane. It’s the perfect time for visiting this area of Italy.
