Sorrento

Sorrento is best known for its remarkable views. From its perch on the Sorrentine Peninsula, it peers straight over the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius.

Looking inwards, you’ll find a town with a historic centre of cobbled streets and craft shops. Wander the shady lemon groves of the Museum Correale, catch a concert in the Franciscan Cloisters, or hunt out a bottle of freshly made limoncello liqueur.

Sorrento doubles as an ideal base for day trips along the dramatic Campania coast. Naples, the Amalfi Coast, and the islands of Capri and Ischia are all within easy reach.

Things to do in resort

Amalfi Drive

The Amalfi Drive is one of the most famous roads in the world. Join an excursion or hop on a local bus to enjoy panoramic views along the hairpin roads that hug the cliffs from Sorrento down to Salerno. 

Pompeii & Herculaneum

These fascinating historical sites are an easy day trip from Sorrento. Famous Pompeii draws hundreds of visitors each day while Herculaneum is lesser known but its location closer to Mount Vesuvius means its better preserved and well worth a visit. We recommend taking a guided tour to learn all about these once-thriving towns.

Visit Naples

Naples is normally skipped by most visitors to the Neapolitan Riviera but this coastal city offers an authentic charm and plenty to see and do. It rivals Rome with its wealth of historic monuments and archaeological sites and has lively piazzas filled with restaurants serving some of the region’s best food.

Explore the Coast

The towns along the Amalfi Coast are best explored by boat. Take a sunset tour from Sorrento, hop off at Amalfi and visit beautiful towns like Positano, or sail across to the stunning isle of Capri.
