About the location

Surrounded by olives trees, aromatic pine and Mediterranean plants, Sorrento is a little oasis on the peninsula that bears its name. While the Amalfi Coast may be better known, we love this side of the headland as it is much less crowded than its up-market neighbours.


Simply put, Sorrento is just gorgeous, so don’t rush off too quickly looking to explore the more famous towns. After a quick caffe stretto, stroll through Corso Italia and support the local economy by visiting a few of the chic boutiques and souvenir shops. Get lost in the pretty jumble of streets that wind all the way to the beach and fishing harbour, where you can easily spend a few hours by sipping a glass of local limoncello and watching the world go by. 


If you’re feeling a little peckish, then you should know that Sorrento is packed full of superb places to eat, whatever your budget. The town is known for its seafood and lemons, so expect dishes such as spaghetti al vongole or risotto ai frutti di mare e limone to play a big part here. The eponymous gnocchi alla Sorrentina is a must try - after all, it is a homespun speciality. And no one this close to Naples should go home without tasting a delicious flame-cooked pizza of oil, basil, tomato, and buffalo mozzarella. Washed down with a glass of local Lacryma Christi (literally meaning ‘Tears of Christ’), you will surely feel closer to heaven!
