Sorrento offers something for everyone. From fascinating museums and characterful markets to the scenic cliff top towns lining the coast. You can even spend the day admiring the views whilst relaxing by the pool.
The dramatic cliff top setting overlooking the Bay of Naples makes Sorrento one of the most memorable holiday destinations in Italy.
The ancient Greeks designed the narrow streets of Sorrento and intentionally positioned them to shade pedestrians from the sun.
If it is seafood that you are after, then head down to the picturesque Marina Grande. This small sandy stretch of beach is lined with understated family run restaurants serving up fresh fish and local cuisine. The colourful fishing boats that bring in the days catch line the waterfront and the beautiful pastel coloured houses keep Marina Grande in a traditional time warp.
Cloisters of San Francisco
There is a reason why so many weddings take place at The Cloisters of San Francisco. It is by far one of the most romantic and magical places to visit in Sorrento. This tranquil and beautiful setting is just a stone’s throw away from the busy and vibrant centre but offers a calm fairy-tale like atmosphere. The beautiful arches that circle the garden area are draped in greenery creating a quiet and calm feeling as soon as you step inside. During the summer, the Cloister is used for art exhibitions and concerts making it come alive.
