Sorrento

At any time of the year, Sorrento is a veritable treasure trove of beauty. For its nature, history, and legends.

Sorrento - Costa dal mareVisited every year by thousands of tourists, Sorrento is a town with a breathtaking landscape beauty. Steep on the sea, rich in historical and architectural beauties, Sorrento has always been a tourist destination of excellence, frequented by visitors on the Grand Tour and then by elite holidaymakers in the nineteenth-century. It is still that charming destination for those who wish to relax in a unique atmosphere: sun, sea, characteristic lanes full of shops, churches, museums and monuments.

Piazza Tasso is the town focal point, very much central to life in Sorrento and many leading sights surround this spacious square. From here, as you look out to sea, the older and more attractive part of town is on your left, and the station on your right.

You can spend a day or more just strolling through town, walking in the alleys of the historical center, surrounded by a wealth of beautiful buildings, delicious little shops and outdoor bars and restaurants. Within the walls of the town you will find hidden monuments and palaces, churches and piazzas that bear witness to ancient civilisation.

The best way to get to know Sorrento is to get a little lost, and wander around admiring the postcard-perfect views, browsing here and there, and walking down to the fishing village of Marina Grande or to the port of Marina Piccola.
