Weekend in Sorrento

Sorrento is a great home base for exploring the Amalfi Coast, including Naples, Pompeii and even Paestum. Streets are lined with citrus trees, views of the steep coastline are magnificent, and everyone speaks English! I would suggest spending two or three nights here before moving onto your next location, as Sorrento is a great place for relaxation and adventuring!

Check out my tips for things to do and things to eat while you're in this great city!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Climate, Not too Expensive, Central Campania Location
  • Cons:Overly Touristic
  • In a nutshell:A great place to relax on your otherwise crazy Italian getaway!

    Wonderful tips about beautiful Sorrento. We loved it so much, we visited it twice! We were fortunate to visit Pompei, but you were more fortunate because you also visited Herculaneum. Terrific photos to accompany your excellent narratives.

    This is a great page on Sorrento. Where did you take that opening picture from? I missed out on that view of the town.

    I have oranges and lemons at my house too. Maybe I will take a picture and write a tip about it.

    Thank you so much for your posts. I'm learning so much from your tips and posts. My husband and I are going to Sorrento for five nights the beginning of September and I'm copying a lot of your info for our itinerary.
