The gentle contours of the Bay of Naples encompass the history and legend of two thousand years, and are unsurpassed in beauty.
We invite you to discover the beautiful medieval city of Sorrento, which overlooks the magical waters of the Bay of Naples, allowing panoramic views of the city of Naples, the lovely Islands of Capri and Ischia, and the awe-inspiring Mount Vesuvius. Set on a plain with dramatic coastline cliffs reaching down to the blue sea, its top class luxury hotels have attracted many famous personalities in the past, including the world-famous Italian tenors Enrico Caruso and the inimitable Luciano Pavarotti.
You may fall in love with Sorrento, with its medieval buildings, its cobbled alleyways and flower-ringed piazzas which invite leisurely strolls. Time passes gently here: browse the tourist shops, enjoy the scenic walks of the peninsular, delight in the town’s great restaurants, cafés, clubs and bars or relax at a pavement table, watching the world go by in true Italian style. Sit for a while in the Piazza Tasso, where the central square is built over a gorge, or discover the charming, flowered cloisters of the fourteenth century Chiesa San Francesco, where tranquil public gardens offer memorable views across the bay.
A wonderful base in its own right, Sorrento is an important gateway to the Island of Capri, Pompeii, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and many other stunning locations. It is superbly equipped for the tourist, blending the ancient charms of its pretty old town and harbour with the best of contemporary living. English is spoken widely here, and it is well connected by sea, road, bus and the Circumvesuviana train. Full of friendly people and offering great value for money, Sorrento is a city of reassuring familiarity and resplendent with Italian charm.
