Staying at Grand Hotel De La Ville means you'll be just ten minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento with all the amenities of this buzzing town on your doorstep. Up on the rooftop, there's a lovely temperature controlled pool (normally open from May to September) and a terrace with amazing views towards Vesuvius. The Hibiscus Bar is just beside the pool, so you can enjoy drinks and snacks from the comfort of your lounger throughout the day. In the evening it's a great place to sip a cocktail and catch the last rays of sun as it sets over the Bay of Naples. There's also a second, larger pool in the hotel’s small garden and the courtyard here has some nice shady spots to relax.

The hotel's known for its fantastic food. Expert chefs blend traditional cuisine using creative techniques that make the most of locally-grown ingredients. La Magnolia lounge bar is ideal is you fancy a post-dinner drink in an elegant, yet cosy setting. At the end of the day, retreat to your comfortable room that's been finished in a typical Neapolitan style. The double rooms have nice balconies that look out over the gardens and some have side sea views.

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.

What to see on a Sorrento holiday

Sorrento doubles as an ideal base for day trips along the dramatic Campania coast. Jump on a train to nearby Naples or stop off in Pompeii before hiking to the top of Mount Vesuvius. The Amalfi Coast is a bus ride away (with incredible views along the route!) so spend some time in Positano and Amalfi.

The islands of Capri and Ischia are both within easy reach too with regular ferries throughout the summer.

Things to Do

Things to see and do

You can easily fill up a whole week or more with things to see and do in Sorrento. There's plenty to explore in the town itself including having lunch at the busy Piazza Tasso, browsing the boutique shops in the little streets and heading to the marina for a seafood dinner. Make sure you head out of town too - some of the Neapolitan Riviera's best sights are an easy day trip away.

  • 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: 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.

Food & drink

There are plenty of restaurants to cater for every palate from traditional trattoria to fine-dining. Sorrento is famous for its fresh seafood, pastas and fresh vegetables. Make sure you try Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, Sorrento's famous pasta dish. Wash it down with a limoncello afterwards.
