Sorrento

4.3

Land of the Sirens

A lovely town easily accessible from almost anywhere in the country, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and sits right on the Amalfi Drive. This scenic road--a popular tourist attraction in itself--threads its way along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Though small in size, Sorrento offers numerous places to visit, featuring notable architecture, cafes, restaurants, and shops catering to tourists. Sorrento is connected to Naples by the convenient Circumvesuviana rail network, which makes it an ideal base for touring popular regional sites like Pompeii and Herculaneum. Perhaps best known as the birthplace of Limoncello, a popular lemon liqueur, the city is known for its wine, olives, and nuts. Catch a ferry between Sorrento and the Isle of Capri if you'd like to do more shopping. Sorrento is in Province of Naples. Use our Italy trip planner to arrange your visit to Sorrento and other destinations in Italy.

Where to stay in Sorrento

Sorrento's seaside hotels offer an ideal base for exploring the Amalfi Coast and the nearby archeological sites. Staying right on the water's edge also means being mere minute from the historical town center, popular beaches, and Sorrento's famous harbor. For a quieter experience just a little farther away from the sea, book your stay at a private hostel or B&B. Many family-run inns in the residential neighborhoods offer access to private swimming pools and manicured yards, with secure parking.
