Top Tourist Attractions & Places To Visit From Sorrento
For those that appreciate fresh air, beautiful natural surroundings and stunning coastal views, then a trip to the Sorrento Coast is a must. Explore this popular holiday destination in the south of Italy to enjoy the unique landscape of hills and valleys, scented lemon orchards, olive groves, and dramatic cliff tops giving way to picturesque fishing villages. The Sorrento Coast is a perfect base to explore southern Italy and our holidays to this area offer plenty of excursions to iconic highlights like Capri and Pompeii.
Set on a spectacular headland, Sorrento boasts wonderful views across the Bay of Naples to Capri and Ischia. The town’s historic quarter radiates from Via San Cesareo, where we’ll find excellent shopping and a host of restaurants and pavement cafés. One of the most iconic images of Sorrento is of its atmospheric Marina Grande, the original fishing village with bright coloured houses built directly into the side of a cliff. On our holidays to Sorrento, we’ll visit all of the town’s highlights including the peaceful cloisters of San Francesco, the town’s Duomo (cathedral), and the Correale Museum.
This idyllic island is home to rare birds, historic churches, magnificent villas, fashionable hotels and breathtaking cliffside views of the sparkling Mediterranean. It’s no wonder Capri has been a playground for film stars and holiday makers for centuries. Capri town is located on a plateau, high over the sea and the town’s pedestrianized maze of small lanes is lined with designer shops and stylish restaurants. On our trips to Capri, we’ll have free time to enjoy a leisurely lunch, a swim in the sea or a visit to the famous Blue Grotto, before returning to our hotel.
The winding road from the Sorrento Peninsula to Amalfi is one of Europe’s most scenic routes, with views over the pretty village of Positano, Capri and the Galli Islands. The former maritime superpower of Amalfi is today a welcoming resort town, with a beautiful cathedral dedicated to Sant’Andrea. On our trips to Sorrento, we’ll take this scenic drive to visit the picture-perfect towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. At each location, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the pastel coloured houses and history sites of this beautiful coastal region.
One of the few active volcanoes left in Europe, Mount Vesuvius offers great hiking trails and spectacular views overlooking the Bay of Naples. Infamous for destroying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD, it is now a national park and a walker’s paradise. When travelling with us to Sorrento, you’ll have plenty of free time to visit the national park and explore this famous volcano and its still-steaming crater. Just let us know and we can help arrange day trips or transportation.
Not far from Sorrento is one of the most famous excavation sites in all of Italy, the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Simultaneously destroyed and preserved by Mount Vesuvius’ volcanic eruption 2,000 years ago, Pompeii is an incredible window into ancient Roman life. On our trips to Sorrento, we’ll visit the archaeological site of Pompeii with an expert guide to give us the history of the city and its residents. We’ll see homes, fast food restaurants and even people and animals, frozen in time from the volcanic blast that occurred in 79AD.
