Sorrento Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Sorrento
Perched on a clifftop and offering dramatic, plunging views of the aquamarine Bay of Naples, Sorrento is a little slice of heaven in Italy’s stunning south.
The weather is balmy all year round, but in summer, the elevated location means it’s cooler than much of the surrounding area, making Sorrento holidays an ideal year-round choice for the discerning traveller.
At Newmarket Holidays we know the town has plenty of amazing things to do beyond staring in awe at its wonderful natural surroundings. Piazza Tasso is a colourful, bustling centre where local artisans and high-end bars coexist. Alongside all this there are restaurants that produce food so delicious you’ll be desperate to devour everything you see. Sorrento tours allow you to meander through this mishmash of unique amenities.
During the day you can cruise down Corso Italia, window shopping at numerous designer stores. For a more authentic experience there are dozens of narrow passageways around the main streets, each jam-packed with local shops, restaurants, and bars. The town is also home to an abundance of green space, for when you want to escape the busy centre, and with a Sorrento escorted tour you’ll be able to explore it all.
Things to do in Sorrento
From charming old towns to age-old recipes, Sorrento is full of ancient secrets waiting to be discovered.
Strolling through the idyllic Old Town of Sorrento is a must. Although often crowded, there’s a reason why so many people love to head here: from aesthetically pleasing pastel houses on long, winding cobbled streets, to the excellent food on offer, it’s a great place to spend a day.
This area of Italy is famous for Limoncello, the bright, zesty drink that’s handed out after meals to help your food go down. At Liminoro you can see how the beverage is made, as well as being given the chance to sample a fresh batch.
A visit to Frantio Gargiulo is a necessity for any Sorrento holiday. This large olive farm is just a short drive from Sorrento, but is like entering another world, with endless groves of the famous fruit. Make sure you get a tasting tour so you can really appreciate the joy of freshly pressed olive oil.
