Hotel Corallo

  • Neapolitan Riviera, Italy, Sorrento

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Corallo has an amazing location - it's on the edge of a cliff in the quiet village of Sant'Angelo with spectacular views. Getting to Sorrento couldn't be any easier with the free shuttle service to and from Piazza Tasso. If you fancy walking, it'll take around 25 minutes.

The hotel is a beautiful historic building that's been welcoming guests since the early 1900's. It used to be a favourite meeting point for artists and intellectuals. Today, its large panoramic terrace and great social spaces make it the perfect place to catch up after days out exploring the region. The American Bar serves some delicious cocktails that you can enjoy out on the terrace too. 

The rooms have been finished with white-washed walls and splashes of colour. They all have views of the sea but if you can, we'd recommend upgrading to a Superior or Deluxe Room where you'll have a furnished balcony or terrace with the most incredible views across the Bay of Naples.

The small infinity pool is an idyllic place to relax and there's also a solarium on the roof terrace where you can find a comfy lounger to lie on and enjoy the sun. We also recommend spending a morning at La Marinella beach where the hotel has a reserved section for guests from the end of May to mid September, for a local charge. 

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by private car from Naples airport.

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.
