Straddling the cliffs of Campania, southern Italy, Sorrento is a postcard perfect destination that enchants all who visit. Overlooking the picturesque Bay Of Naples, Sorrento is a great base from which to explore a host of neighbouring tourist attractions, from the famous Amalfi Coast to the Isle of Capri, Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii. There’s plenty to see and do in Sorrento itself though. Pull up a deck chair and soak in some sun on one of the picturesque piers jutting into the glittering water, take a dip at Punta del Capo, or shop until you drop in Piazza Tasso or Piazza Antica. When hunger strikes, head to one of Sorrento’s many restaurants and cafes for some incredible local seafood, or pehaps a steaming plate of gnocchi alla sorrentina. Whatever you order, be sure to end your meal with a delicious glass of limoncello, a Sorrento specialty. If you choose self-catering Sorrento accommodation, you can also take advantage of the excellent Sorrento Market. Stock up on incredible fresh produce and you’ll not only save money on dining out, but will shop amongst the locals for a true taste of local Sorrento life.
