Where stories begin
Built between the sea and the sky, overlooking the blue Bay of Naples and Vesuvius’ brooding cone, Sorrento is one of Italy’s most alluring and popular resorts. This special corner of the world exudes southern Italian charm from its every pore.
At the end of the long sweep of the Neapolitan coast, which curves from bustling Naples, the Sorrentine peninsula juts out into blue waters. The town, perched upon its cliff-top, combines a delightful mix of warm days and balmy nights, all the pleasure of the beach, colourful town life and some fascinating sights.
Sorrento’s bustling, colourful, beating heart is the Piazza Tasso. Take in Sorrentine life in the evenings, when the bars and cafés that surround it become a perfect place to watch the locals enjoying the nightly passeggiata.
Stroll down stylish Corso Italia, with its designer stores, or into the maze of narrow alleyways crammed with smaller shops, bars and restaurants. In the cool of the evening, enjoy the parks and gardens of the town, some with stunning views over the Bay.
Everywhere, as well as stunning plants and flowers, you’ll find lemon and orange trees, the fruit of the former celebrated in everything from ceramics and linen-ware to limoncello, the deliciously more-ish, but deceptively strong local alcoholic drink.
Travel with us to the remarkable town of Sorrento and enjoy fascinating sights and Italian warmth.
